Happening this week around the county …

Work has begun on the waterfront property in Perryville that will become a pair of restaurants, a banquet hall, marina and tiki bar.

While putting shovels in the ground is still in the permitting process, Bud Craven, part owner of Lee’s Landing in Port Deposit and Tiki Lee’s in Sparrows Point, said it was time to start getting the land in between Owens Landing Condominiums and Ice House Park ready for construction.

”This is going to happen in stages,” Craven said as he watched heavy equipment reduce a house on the property to rubble.

Now the owners of what was once Perryville Yacht Club and Perryville Marina, Craven has plans to build a large clubhouse at 31 River Road with outdoor dining and tiki bars plus an indoor restaurant with waterfront views and a venue center for wedding receptions and other events and parties.

”It’s so exciting to get this thing going,” he said. He said all buildings will be razed and replaced. The pier moorings will stay but there would be new decking installed.

The former marina at 12 River Road will welcome boats for short stays and offer a different menu than the restaurant, more of pub style and finger foods.

A year ago Craven and his partners sought a liquor license for the former yacht club, telling the Board of License Commissioners the new venture would be open by Memorial Day 2019. Since then, the partners purchased the Baltimore City location and Perryville Marina, which slowed down progress on the Cecil County projects. The Sparrows Point location opened May 24.

Meanwhile, Craven said the first restaurant, Lee’s Landing Dock Bar will now stay open all year long.

”We’ve been there five years now,” he said. Customers urged him to consider staying open during the winter months. “So we are.”

Craven could not say enough about the support he’s received from Perryville officials for the dual projects.

”The mayor and Denise (Breder, town administrator) have been so supportive,” he said adding, “Everything we’ve asked for we’ve got.”

The new opening date is now Memorial Day weekend 2020, having received an extension from the liquor board.

Orchid Day Spa in Perryville and Cool Beans Market in Port Deposit recently held grand opening celebrations.

Located in the Perryville Station Shopping Center, Orchid Day Spa actually opened for business in late August, offering manicures, pedicures, facials and body waxing. Shop owner Samantha Duong cut the ribbon on Oct. 12.

That same day Tania Fleming had her official grand opening with a ribbon cutting at Cool Beans, 14 South Main St. in Port Deposit. Fleming opened earlier that week and offers Chesapeake Bay Roasting Co. coffee and household essentials such as detergent, milk, snacks and sodas.


Bry Overhead Door Service is in an unexpected growth spurt according to Brian Biggers, owner of the Elkton business her started in 2014.

With winter approaching he expects to be even busier.

”In the cold is when garage doors break,” Biggers said recently. His fleet of three trucks specializes in repair and installation of garage doors, openers, framing and tracks.

”This time last year I was a 1-truck shop. Now there’s 3. It all happened very recently,” he said, now finding himself in the position of being an employer. “It’s a lot of stress knowing I’m responsible for a lot of mouths (to feed).”

Also EPA certified in lead removal, Bry Overhead Door Service installs storm doors too.

He was originally an electrician working for someone else but felt the need to be his own boss. Biggers worked with a friend installing garage doors on the side.

”I got so good at it that I started my own business,” he said, adding it’s been “very good, very profitable.”

As if all that were not enough, Biggers can get a custom door made from a customer’s design.

”We can do everything from standard to wood carriage doors,” he said.

Biggers is also self taught in web design.

”I built my own website from the ground up. I even did my own SEO,” he said, referring to the search engine optimization.

Bry Overhead Door Service can be reached online at and through Facebook or by calling 443-907-8301.
