Not sure where to watch March Madness or the upcoming Stanley Cup playoffs? You’re in luck, because one of the state’s most recognizable sports bars is opening today, March 26, on Route 202 in Wilmington.
The Greene Turtle is opening in the space that was once occupied by Lone Star Steakhouse in the Brandywine Commons shopping center, surrounded by fast-casual restaurants T.G.I. Fridays, Olive Garden and Red Lobster.
The local sports bar chain first opened in Ocean City, Md. in 1976 with a menu that specializes in burgers, sandwiches and, of course, beer.
The first 100 people who dine in or order food to go at this location will receive a $10 rewards card every month for one year.
The restaurant is currently partnering with the Greene Turtle Lacrosse Club of Delaware, where $1 from every Boardwalk Iced Tea and Boardwalk Lemonade sold during the opening month will be donated to the organization. In addition, the restaurant will hold a silent auction benefiting the A.I. DuPont Pediatric Hospital for the first 30 days after opening.
