August 20, 2010- Gone are the vines and the unusual art. (Regular patrons, you know what we mean.) Still there is the bar made from a mahogany coffin as well as the home-made potato chips, delicious home-made entrees, subs and New York style pizza.
Coats and Chelstowski are new to the restaurant business. Both are former publishing executives who were looking for a new venture after selling a real estate publication in 2009. They were approached by a business broker to take a look at Dominic's which was for sale at the time. They were impressed by its location in eclectic Gulfport and decided to give the restaurant business a go.
Coats said recently, “We had no idea what we were getting into, but this has been a great experience. We are so pleased that so many former customers have come by to tell us the food is amazingly addictive and the new inside dining room is so clean and open.”
Dominic’s has a new outdoor dining area, too, featuring picnic tables and a shaded dining space. At night it is lit by torches and new LED lighting. On weekends, you can enjoy a meal and cold beverages while listening to live music from the Bed and Breakfast across the street, the Peninsula Inn and Spa. The outside dining area is also pet-friendly, so Fifi and Fido are welcome.
Dominic’s offers delivery of all items on their menu to Gulfport and South Pasadena. You can visit their facebook page at www.facebook.com/dominicspizzeria
Cindy Coats recently said about the experience of starting their new business, “It's like jumping into a running river without being able to see the bottom; you never know where the current is going to take you.” The community is glad it has brought them to Gulfport.
