Fill This Spot: The Gathering Place

What would you like to see move in to this long-empty space?

The Gathering Place used to be that - a place where lots of folks gathered for food, drink and fun.

The restaurant and bar at 314 Route 12 was open for a long time (anyone know how long?) and closed in 2002. The property is for sale for $950,000.

This is a busy section of Route 12, with a Shell gas station/convenience store on one side of this parcel and a Hess gas station on the other side.

What would you like to see developed on this property?

Posted on Groton Patch Facebook (www.facebook.com/GrotonPatch) by Linda Davis Gaudet The exact same thing. We loved the Gathering Place....the food, the people, the friendly atmosphere to get together with friends. And this one by Karen Negrelli- Griggs I agree Linda I loved the Gathering Place the food was great, friendly people I've been wondering why no one has ever reopened the resturant . And this one by Amy Yaras Bring back a great MEXICAN place! I know it wasn't mexican before but OMG they had the BEST and BIGGEST Burrito EVAH!!!

I'd like to see it re-open as The Gathering Place, with a similar menu and atmosphere. It was a wonderful place to hang out, and they had great steak and seafood Sunday night specials at an excellent price. They also had an outstanding fish and chips menu on Fridays, and I've never met anyone who didn't love the GP twice baked potato!

This is a shame. Someone could put something in that could become a beautiful addition to the area and it's been an eye sore for 10 years!! You would think that the owner would realize maybe close to a million dollars is too high. :(

The gathering place on Rte 12 seems to be a new business of some type opening very soon. Anyone know what might be coming?
