ORMOND-BY-THE-SEA, Fla. -- Betty and Bud Evans opened the original Alfie’s Restaurant in Jamestown, NY, way back in 1969.

In 1986, they decided to move to Ormond-by-the-Sea and opened up another location, which has now celebrated 29 years in business.

Their son, Greg Evans, and his wife, Dina, own and operate the popular eatery, that remains a throwback to gentler times with great home-cookin' and even better conversation.

The owners have found that giving back to local schools, churches, and charitable organizations has come back to them ten-fold and they are eternally grateful.
