So sad, a great family owned business was heavily damaged early Monday when a fire broke out at the popular restaurant on Route 50. 

The fire was called in around 4:30am, departments from Saratoga, Ballston Spa, Malta Ridge, and Round Lake all responded to the blaze.Route 50 had to be shut down near Route 67 while fire crews put the fire out.

The cause is still not known but one firefighter says it looks like it may have started in the basement. The owners say they're hoping to rebuild.
