Caswell Station’s grand opening is this weekend – here’s what you need to know

The building that once housed Kennedy’s Premium Bar and Grill on Caswell Street now has new life as Caswell Station hosts its grand opening this weekend.

The restaurant and bar had a soft opening over the past two weeks, and the eatery has been well received.

The grand opening for Caswell Station starts at noon Saturday and ends Sunday night. There will be food and drink specials, raffles for Panthers and Hornets tickets, and live music.

The new restaurant and bar aims to be a neighborhood spot that has everything from corn hole to lobster corndogs. Dimitri Maheras, one of the partners of the endeavor, said everything had to be scrapped from Kennedy’s to give the location the feel they wanted. New to the space is a large outside astroturf area for corn hole, along with plenty of TV’s to watch your favorite game.

There is also an upstairs to the building that is currently being used for private parties, but Maheras plans on giving the space its own life like that of a speakeasy.

The food

Caswell Station’s menu has a wide range of items all at reasonable prices ($10-15). You can go light and fresh with a soup and salad, dig into a delicious lobster corndog, or share some cheesesteak egg rolls with the table. Caswell also has a wide selection of flatbreads.
