SUWANEE -- A sports grill is coming to the ever-changing Suwanee restaurant scene.
A status update on the Friends Sports Grill Facebook page earlier this week said that it would open a third location at Lawrenceville-Suwanee Road and Buford Highway, behind Town Center Park. Owner Ray Stanjevich also owns locations in Dacula and Dawsonville.
The Facebook announcement said, "God has blessed us every day, especially with great employees and the best customers we could ask for. And we thank you all for supporting us! We will let you know the opening date as we get closer to that date. Stay tuned..."
In the last year, about a dozen restaurants have opened in Suwanee, while three prominent eateries -- Olde Towne Tavern & Grille, Moondance Restaurant & Lounge and Cafe Gourmandises -- have recently closed.
The Friends location is in the space formerly occupied by Corralejo Mexican Flair and Tequila Bar, which was opened under two names and two menus in the last two years.
The Friends website said its menu features 115 items, including burgers, salads, steaks, sandwiches and desserts. It also boasts a full bar that serves liquor, 15 wines, 12 draft beers and 35 bottled beers.
Another Facebook post said Friends also has weekend music, team trivia and wing nights.
