BURLINGTON — We all remember what Marinellis was all about. Love it or leave it, Marinellis had a quaint look and feel offering a beautiful lakeside setting, dinners, Sunday brunch, wedding receptions, showers, anniversaries and private parties.
Since 1974, the family-owned and operated Marinelli’s Supper Club had been a favorite spot.
The restaurant has been closed for over 8 years now. The building is in poor shape with high weeds in the parking lot blocked by concrete barriers.
Back in 2011 Jim Marinelli told the Courant “May 15, 2011 will be our last day,” Marinelli, whose late father and mother, Nick and Maxine Marinelli, founded the restaurant, overlooking Lake Major on Monce Road.
“It’s a combination of reasons,” said Marinelli, who ran it with brother Jon Marinelli and their mother.
The combination of reasons was a poor economy at the time and a desire for the family to move on, said Marinelli.
Marinelli said in 2011 there were plans for the property, but it won’t be a restaurant.
He declined to comment further until the sale was final.
Since then, the property still remains vacant.
