Does anyone remember the name of a seafood restaurant in Greensboro that was on the right side of I-40 west close to where the Auto Auction is now? It sat down in a valley area right of the interstate between Patterson St and Wendover. It had a lighthouse in front of it and was surrounded by a moat-like body of water. Thanks for your help.

I remember eating there once with the family... Was called the "Fisherman's Lighthouse" if I am correct. I could be wrong it was many years ago....

Hungry Fisherman, wasn't it? It was a chain; part of the Shoney's group.

I remember that place.
There was an animatronic dog with nursing robot puppies in the waiting area. My sister and I was just talking about that the other day.

I worked at Tanglewood Park near Clemons years back when me and my partner actually hauled the boat back to the park with the help of theNational Guard
The restaurant was still open because they fed us that day
We never got the old boat running again ....
