The building at 806 West Main St. was a Plymouth dealership in 1948.
Gary Bass opened a seafood restaurant in the former dealership in 1983; one of a new wave of restaurants that opened during Durham's 'first resurgence' in the mid-1980s. As of 2011, it was one of the few of the originals still around.
