SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - The Fairmont restaurant serves up the last of its last homestyle cooking.

The family-style buffet and bakery will close its doors on Wednesday after 18 years.

The Ron and Peal Beaupre said they will miss their customers but want to spend more time with their family, especially their grandchildren.

"There have been a lot of tears and goodbyes," said Peal. "We will miss our customers, and I believe my customers will miss us. This has been a meeting place and a place where they can see their friends. A lot of table hopping goes on here."

The owners have received multiple awards over the years including being a WTOC Hometown Hero for their involvement with the USO welcoming soldiers home.
