Residents have been waiting with baited breath to find out what will replace beloved T-Bones on the Lake. The wait is finally over. A new restaurant and bar is headed to the prime Lake Wylie spot called Papa Doc’s Shore Club.
T-Bones on the lake was a fixture of Lake Wylie for 24 years. Located on Highway 49 on the South Carolina side of the Buster Boyd Bridge, T-Bones was the perfect location for car riders as well as boaters. It served thousands of customers Western themed seafood, steaks and late night comfort food. This location has been a restaurant for almost 50 years so before T-Bones it was Hungry Fisherman.
The new Papa Doc’s Shore Club is being put together by Charlotte’s Bottle Cap Group. In Charlotte they have been behind restaurants Ink N Ivy, All American Pub, Slate Charlotte, Whiskey Warehouse, Jacks Corner Tap, Brazwells Premium Pub, Hot Taco, Rosemont and Oak Room. They also have locations in Greenville and Charleston, South Carolina.
Papa Doc’s Shore Club is expected to serve a modern American menu including seafood influences. Offerings will include oysters, lobster tails, and daily chef’s specialties. The bar will feature a tiki-themed cocktail menu. They plan to serve lunch and dinner each day, have a merchandise store, and have to-go service for boaters.
Expect Papa Doc’s to be a great gathering space for community events as well. T-Bones was known for charity work and community events and Papa Doc’s wants to fill that slot. Hopefully they will continue the annual Lake Wylie Children’s Charity fall benefit concert, Riversweep, and the Lights on the Lake holiday boat parade as well as many smaller events throughout the year. An opening date has not yet been set, but expect it sometime in 2019.
