Cheers to 45 Years for Ridgefield's Ancient Mariner

Congratulations to The Ancient Mariner on 45 Years in Business!

The Ancient Mariner, owned by Jessica Wilmot, is part of the fabric of our town. A gathering place after the 9th inning, Saturday lunch with the kids between soccer games, a beer with the guys (or gals), happy hour (any hour) - it's Ridgefield's own Cheers.

Thanks to a shoutout today by Ridgefield Theater Barn who reminded locals that 2019 marks an important anniversary for the townie hub - 45 years in business! 

April 7, 1992, is a day owner Jessica Wilmot will never forget, it's the day The Ancient Mariner, a nautical-themed and pub-style restaurant, became hers. And, 2019, marks 27 years of that Wilmot has owned The Ancient Mariner.

"The restaurant opened in January 1974 and I came to work in the fall of 78'. In 1992, the owner wanted to move to Florida, so he put the restaurant up for sale and that's when I bought it - on April 7, 1992," Wilmot says in a 2017 video

Under Wilmot's watch, the Ancient Mariner has become a destination for townies and families alike, serving their ever-popular Mariner Burger, lobster rolls, sandwiches, and so much more!

The Ancient Mariner is located at 451 Main Street, in the CVS Shopping Plaza. Visit them online here.
