BUNNELL, Fla. – A family-owned Flagler County business is making the most of unfortunate conditions after Hurricane Irma and other recent storms put a damper on their normal operating hours.

Chris Zwirn, the owner of Bull Creek Fish Camp, said the restaurant has only offered full services two days out of the last month because of severe flooding from the St. Johns River. 

Different movie, same plot. Prayers appreciated.

The bathrooms are not working, which prevents Zwirn from opening the restaurant’s doors for a normal day of operations, but that isn’t stopping him or his ten employees from serving their community.

Zwirn said his employees have been thrilled to throw on their rain boots and run food out to customers in their vehicles for a few hours a day while offering what they’re calling “creekside service.”

When doors don’t open, bills don’t get paid. And since the restaurant’s doors have been closed, Zwirn said one of his employees came up with the idea to offer the curbside service to not only bring in the money needed, but also carry out the orders customers have wanted the last month.

The restaurant remains closed to the public on the inside, but customers are invited from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. to call ahead and order items from a limited-service menu Zwirn posts on Facebook each morning.

We are not being lazy and uncreative, but we are going to stick with burgers, mahi and shrimp until we can get a food...
