Marblehead's popular beachfront eatery, Lime Rickey's, has reopened for the season at Devereux Beach and the business' new owners have given the building a new look and added some awesome new menu items.
The restaurant, located at 105 Ocean Ave., is operating under the ownership of Anthony Marino and Victoria Farnsworth, who also own Marino's Café in Beverly.
"We knew when we took over last year that we wanted to spruce up the place during the off-season," Farnsworth said. "Lime Rickey's was in desperate need of a face lift."
Prior to reopening, the pair added a fresh coat of yellow paint, some new exterior shutters and even livened up the menu.
New menu items include Lime Rickey's signature burgers, including The Pig, which is topped with pulled pork and crispy bacon; The Rise and Shine, which is topped with caramelized onion, American cheese, french fries and a fried egg; The Applejack, which is topped with a apple-jalapeno slaw and jack cheese; and the Campfire Burger, which has sriracha, fresh pico de gallo, and smoked mozzarella.
Marino and Farnsworth also plan to establish an Express Line when the June rush hits, which will be a quick item line only.
"Things like prepared sandwiches, salads and wraps, as well as ice cream and drinks," Farnsworth said. "This will help solve the problem of the long line here on a hot day."
Although they have made some preseason changes, Farnsworth and Marino want local customers to know they will continue to offer the fan favorites.
"We just want to continue to make Lime Rickey's on Devereux Beach a fun, funky destination that serves the best food with the best view on the North Shore," Farnsworth said.
