For the past five years, Danny Hayes has been serving up his signature blend of fresh seafood and infectious humor at the House of Fish, on the corner of N.C. 211 and Keyser Street in Aberdeen.
With a move to a new location in Aberdeen on U.S. 1, in a space that has housed two restaurants and most recently a church, he’ll be adding 4,000 square feet to his operation; and working for months to covert the space into something “modern, sexy, and sleek.”
Find the new space on U.S. 1, between Aberdeen and Pinebluff.
Plans include a dining room with an entertainment stage, a semi-private room you can reserve for parties, and — for those too good to dine among the masses — a 100-percent private dining room, complete with its own bathroom and separate entrance.
And if you’re worried that Danny is going to change the whole menu, don’t be; just be excited for more options.
The House of Fish’s current location has re-opened for indoor dining, but will close permanently on Aug. 9. A soft opening at the new location, 36471 U.S. 1, is planned for November.
Danny envisions a full-service bar (above) with 20 taps that will feature rotating selections from Southern Pines, Railhouse and Hatchet breweries. Plans also include wine by Bacco Selections and Cypress Bend Vineyards.
“The House of Fish is going to be so fabulous it’s ridiculous,” he says. “I want to provide people with an experience they’ve never had before.”
