Dear Editor,

We moved to Alex City a year ago and one thing I’ve noticed is, yes, there is a lot of fast food but I always wished they would have opened up the restaurant on Highway 280 close to River North Marina.

I even called the owner of Fried Tomato Buffet in Montgomery and asked him about opening up a restaurant up this way. He said, “Find me a place.”

Fast food is great but wouldn’t you just love a place with healthier choices and a bigger variety? And I was thinking, the place on 280 where they tore down the building that was there which overlooks the lake, wouldn’t that be an awesome place to have an affordable restaurant with a view of the lake?

Lake Martin is beautiful and I think not only residents but people who come here for reunions, fishing tournaments and just to relax would enjoy having a place to eat and also enjoy the view. Can you imagine it at night? I can. Can you imagine how many people that would attract?

Just my opinion and I think it’s something to think about. How about y’all?
