River Drifters reopens for business

River Drifters reopens for business

August 28th, 2018 by Staff Report in Breaking News

A local restaurant has reopened for business after a breakout of illness forced it to close earlier this month.

In a Facebook post Saturday, the owners of River Drifters Bar & Grill, located on Suck Creek Road, said the business has received a perfect score on its health inspection and is welcoming guests back.

Earlier this month, more than 100 people became ill with norovirus or E. Coli, which was blamed on a collapsed water well. 

A lawsuit has been filed by one woman after she said she was hospitalized after eating at the restaurant. 

This is a developing story.
