As Steve Loftis stood outside under the Grand marquee Monday morning, a handful of people stopped by to wish him well and to thank him for all he’s done.

Steve and his wife Carole, owners of Harbor Restaurants, have operated the Dee-Lite, Theater Bar, and The Grand Seafood and Oyster Bar for the past 20 years. Late last week, the Loftises announced they were closing those restaurants and selling the properties to Anna’s House, an award-winning restaurant group based in Grand Rapids.

Would like to see the marquee preserved and put in the Museum. It is far too historical to the city of Grand Haven to trash.

Jill and I will miss this place, and the fantastic staff! But will see you at Snug!
