Parents raise concerns over Jeremiah's Tavern proposal in Penfield

Some have voiced their concerns about a proposal to build a new Jeremiah’s Tavern in Penfield, saying it could create problems due to its proximity to a child care facility.

Jeff Reddish, owner of the restaurant, presented his tentative plan to build the restaurant on Route 250, next to Doodlebugs Day Care Center and Preschool during a public hearing before the Penfield Town Board on Wednesday, January 23. If approved, this would be the restaurant’s third location in region.

“I want to stress very clearly that we are definitely not a bar,” said Reddish, saying the establishment has had an “impeccable record” at its Rochester and Gates locations, referring to behavior from customers. “We have gone through great lengths to make sure Jeremiah’s Tavern is family friendly.”
