FENWICK ISLAND, Del.- After more than nine months of renovations and rebuilding, Fenwick Island's Catch 54 is opening again after last summer's devastating fire.
Catch 54 owner Matthew Haley said the community has been a tremendous help in getting the restaurant back on its feet.
"It was amazing how the fire departments and local police departments worked to create such a safe environment through this tragedy," he said.
More than 300 people were inside the restaurant when the fire broke out in August of 2011, but luckily everyone was able to escape without injury. The building was destroyed and had to built again but that has allowed for a new design and a new menu.
"Local produce, local protein with local beer," said Catch 54 General Manager Jim Affeldt. "I don't think you can go wrong with those options."
The restaurant had a soft opening Sunday evening and will be open throughout the week but they expect business to really begin Memorial Day weekend.
