In 2003 Michael and his wife Betsy purchased a Victorian home in Clayton North Carolina and opened it as a Bed and Breakfast known as the Morning Glory Inn. They have enjoyed growing the business and they also do many special events such as bridal showers, baby showers, small weddings, anniversary celebrations, and parties of all varieties.
Betsy is the person responsible for the Inn and she has grown the business to become one of the most respected Inns in the Triangle area. She also does all the baking for the Inn and prepares most of the breakfasts for the guests that stay at the Inn with Michael assisting wherever possible.
In 2006 Betsy and Michael thought it might be a good idea to open a restaurant in downtown Clayton so they began researching their options and performed demographic studies to determine the viability of such a venture. Then in June of 2007 they came across a good opportunity to move forward with the venture.
The building they are in was completely renovated and Betsy and Michael opened
their doors on February 12, 2008 and have been going strong ever since, never looking back.
The building has a quaint charm for all to enjoy, but the true enjoyment will come from the faire that the Steakhouse provides to you, its patrons. And as Michael says “we have to have great quality food, great quality service and a great price, and we have to do this everyday to satisfy our customers, otherwise we will not be successful.”
