What Happened to the OB Diner?

How many late nights at Jenks wrapped up at the OB? The Shore is shocked by its abrupt closing and want some answers, and waffles.

For over 50 years, the Ocean Bay or OB Diner has been a mainstay in Point.  But just four months after the company that owns it filed for bankruptcy protection, they have closed their doors.

It turns out the diner is on the market and up for sale. The owner is looking for a business partner. One of the former owners has a brother who still owns part of the building. They want to renovate and reopen. We say, the quicker the better!

An illness in the owner’s family and the slow economy led to money issues. The bankruptcy court was going to shut the OB down anyway, so the owner decided to pay his people and close things down.

While area residents and even the Mayor scratch their heads over the sudden closing of a Jersey Shore landmark, those who stop by the OB Diner on Richmond and 88 will be greeted with an empty lot and a sign that reads “Closed Will Reopen Soon.” We hope so.
