PAM:    “Thank  you for remembering the Homestead Restaurant. I worked there 2 summers. It was an unforgettable experience. I tell my grown children about the interviewing process at Constance Hughes home complete with lemonade and cookies. It was the place to work in the 70′s. It was an honor to wear that navy blue apron as I proudly walked from Loch Arbor Beach Club into Ocean Grove to work my shift.”

You would think that the oceanfront location would be a sure bet for success, but, in at lease the last decade, it was a loser.  Send us your memories of the Homestead. Below is Kathy Arlt’s BF article all about it. Kathy’s article (link below) is very interesting.  Evidently the Homestead was open for about forty years in the Grove and it closed around 1979, to be followed by a Perkins.
