The recent closure of Olde Towne leaves not one, but two vacant restaurant properties. Share your thoughts.
When Olde Towne Tavern and Grille closed abruptly on December 20, it only added to the restaurant-type retail vacancies in Suwanee Town Center. For several months, landlord Madison Retail has been marketing another 4,200 square foot restaurant suite in a Town Center building near Golden Seven and Mellow Mushroom. And already, it has posted a "for lease" notice on the front door of Olde Towne, the same front entrance that contains a bankruptcy court notice. Town Center, of course, is a live-work-play development that includes City Hall and Town Center Park. Although City Hall and the park belong to taxpayers, the surrounding business and residential lofts are controlled by private developers. There are two factors at work in filling such …

The Suwanee dining scene soon could get yet another addition, as a Mexican restaurant plans to open in a shopping plaza near I-85.

Frontera in Suwanee serves affordable and delicious mexican food.
Note: Suwanee Patch will have a special feature on this matter Sunday. Frontera Mex-Mex Restaurant is located on Lawrenceville-Suwanee Road, away from the hustle and bustle from Town Center, and is well worth the extra few minutes drive. Many a night, the ambience at Frontera is set by a live Mariachi band that plays a repertoire of familiar Spanish music. They even take requests from diners. Once you are seated, it does not take long for a basket of thin, crispy tortilla chips to make it to your table. With two types of salsa, it is sure to please any palette. Want even more fun? Order a bowl of queso to dip the chips in. If you are not full from the chips, the meals are equally delicious. From fish to beef to chicken, there are many …

The Suwanee restaurant is good for eating and sports viewing.
Located next to the IHOP in Suwanee on Lawrenceville-Suwanee Road, American Ale House Bar and Grill offers great options for lunch, dinner, or anytime in between. American Ale also is set up to be optimal for anyone wanting a cold beer and some wings while watching a game. The bar area in American Ale definitely takes up most of the floor. Upon first entering the place, it is easy to mistake it as just a bar. Once you slide into one of the booths that run around the perimeter, you will realize that it is much more. The children's menu is small, but delicious. The kids pizza was met by cheers from the little ones. The pizzas were made with cheese that was thick and flavorful and the perfect size for kiddie hands. The wings at American Ale …
