The owner of a popular restaurant between Halfway and Williamsport told county liquor officials Wednesday that he is contemplating moving the business to a larger building north of Hagerstown.
John Walla, owner of Black Eyed Susan at 17102 Virginia Ave., said during a hearing before the Board of License Commissioners for Washington County that he wanted to move the restaurant to the former Beef ‘O’ Brady’s site on North Pointe Drive near the Volvo Powertrain plant.
“We’re running out of space,” Walla said before the hearing.
Walla said he was in the process of negotiating a lease at the new site at 18727 North Pointe Drive. If everything goes as planned, he would like to open in two to three months.
“They have to do some construction in there,” he said.
Walla said the existing Black Eyed Susan on Virginia Avenue would remain open.
“We want to shift it into a diner — something more homestyle,” Walla said.
