"Ever since I was a child of five or six, I said I was going to own a restaurant. I followed my dreams," Robinson said. "I tried to open another pub five years ago," said Robinson, "but the town wasn't allowing more liquor licenses." Robinson fulfilled a dream and opened his restaurant in Dewey Beach, on July 1, easily one of the busiest days of the entire season. "We opened with no advertis- ing," Robinson said. "People have just walked in and each day the business picks up. Locals say, 'this is going to be our spot.' This is what we want. We want this to be a local, casual restaurant and pub that appeals to all age groups." McShea's menu reflects Robin- son's desire to please as many people as possible. The kitchen is run by General Manager Jimmy Burroughs, who met Robinson through a venture in Fenwick Is- land three years ago. Burroughs has been in the restaurant business in the Ocean City area for the past 25 years. "I started as a bartender and got tired cent months, having opened a Sharp Living by Chesapeake store in Dover, and launching the Sharp Living Mobile Kiosk, a showroom on wheels that travels throughout the peninsula visiting communities, special events and trade shows. Sharp Energy is the propane distribution subsidiary of Chesapeake Utilities Corporation, headquartered in Dover. "We are so pleased to be open- of it," said Burroughs. "I taught myself to cook - working the back of the house; you watch and you learn." McShea's menu includes: soups, salads - five types of Cae- sar salad, a raw bar, lite fare such as wings, nachos, sandwiches and burgers. The menu also offers en- trees which feature hand-cut steaks served on sizzling hot plat- ters and homemade jumbo lump crabeakes which" a lot of people are raving about," said Robinson. "There's no filler it's all jumbo lump crab meat." McShea's also offers a chil- dren's menu. Robinson and Burroughs plan to offer food and drink specials throughout the season and off- season. Weekday food specials include: Monday night from 6 p.m. until close, 25 cent wings; Tuesday is one pound night - one pound of steamed shrimp or snow crab clusters will be offered at re- duced prices; Wednesday night is half-price burger night and Thurs- day night is buy one entree and get the second one for half price.
