A New Restaurant is Coming to Punta Gorda's Fishermen's Village

A New Restaurant is Coming to Punta Gorda's Fishermen's VillageFishermen's Village has long been a hub of activity in Punta Gorda on the waterfront. It is full of various activities and businesses. Soon the village will be home to one more great restaurant. The restaurant will focus on the freshest possible seafood with an atmosphere that pays tribute to the fishing industry that played an important role in the formation of the Charlotte County area. 

About Fishermen's Village's New Restaurant

The new restaurant will be named Leroy's Fish Shack. It is a business venture through the partnership of Lee Richardson and Micheal Wright. Lee is the owner of Leroy's Southern Kitchen and Bar. Micheal Wright is Lee's business partner. Lee is a lifetime resident of Charlotte County and opening a restaurant like this is a longtime dream of his. Lee shared this with local news station Fox4, "Commercial fishermen in the 1900s used to catch their fish and bring it to Fishermen’s Village which back then was called the Punta Gorda Fish Company. So, we want to bring that history back to Fishermen’s Village.”

The Fish Shack will Serve the Freshest Possible Seafood

With the help of his business partner, Lee's plan is to take fish straight from the boat in the water to his kitchen. No middleman. Micheal Wright is an expert local fisherman. The team plans to serve fish caught off a local fishing boat unloaded right at the marina and brought straight to the restaurant. It will truly offer the freshest seafood possible. From the boat to the kitchen, and then to the diner's plate. 

Where Leroy's Fish Shack Will be Located

The new restaurant will fill a vacancy left by the Village Fish Market according to the leasing advisor of the Fishermen's Village property, Margeaux McCarthy who works for SVN Commercial Partners. Leroy's plans to be open to the public at Fishermen's Village in September 2024.
