Move Norm's junkyard, build something that belongs in a downtown setting, and people will come. Rip that cursed building out !

Norms has nothing to do with the resturant closing. Get off Norms back. He was doing business in South Lyon long before you got here I am sure.

Bravo! Norm is an asset to this town. I can't see where another bar in town is a good thing.

That building is cursed, nothing to do with Norm's. The building is too big, too close to the Hotel, and everyone that tries to put a restaurant in it has these grandoise plans and fails to realize that this is South Lyon. Another failure, no surprise. I can only hope that the dump that is the Rhino Pub will soon follow.

Need to add clarity to my post from Thurs Jan 28...I wasn't referring to Norm's as "that cursed building". I was referring to the restaurant. I still feel Norm's is in a bad spot though.

jimmy, shaunclaire, and i all agree. there are to many police officers on the main street. who wants to visit a south lyon eatery when all you see are police.we know that they are doing a service to us but we also know that most people wont visit down town for fear of being pulled over. oh and by the way i would like to give a big hi hug to larry who gave us a ride home after jimmy fell on the rail trail and bumped his head. shaunclaire thinks he just had a few to many hot cocoas. all three of us would also like to extend a hi hug to the gentleman with the dark black and slightly graying hair who rides the vintage 1972 stingray schwinn on the trail. oh well hi hugs to all!

Sounds like bruce-jimmy might need a little rehab. Not so sure that's most people's fear of coming to downtown South Lyon to eat.

Building isnt cursed , operators that have gone in are clueless. If "that guy" from the past is still invloved in ownership, management or anything else to do with this place it is doomed.

we are not in need of rehab jimmy, shaunclaire and i all agree south lyons is a special place. we love to sip hot coffe and cocoa at the small eateries on main street. we do think though that the town needs a bit of gift wrapping around it. it would make it look special

we are not strange dudes, and as norms service station goes, our auto has been serviced there several times. a big hi hug to norm and all his wrench twisters! jimmy and the very fasionable shaunclaire also would like to give a hi hug to sammy who owns the copper creek refreshment store across from the garbage park! shaunclaire still thinks that your ice cream bin should be moved next to the adults only video and magazine encloser. oh well as if big hi hugs to all!

I thought they might have made it work this time. It was a fun spot on Friday night.

we heard it was to be a disco bar before it was called croossroads. the very fashionable shaunclaire said that the name of the bar was to be STRAPS. did the south lyons put a stop to this? i would like to give a hi hug to all who work at hungry howies pizza in south lyon! a big thanks to you for replasing jimmys soda pop when he dropped it on the floor

I have lived in South Lyon four years and this is the third establisbment. Nothing is going to work there - number one the police are around and people will not go there. Two - people are poor now and some one has to show some advertisement.
Sorry folks no one is interested in South Lyon it is a dead town.

they need to put a bufflo wild wings, everyone loves them, especially teens. Or a great breakfast place like The Original Pancake House like Birmingham.
