Little River, SC is home to one of the most haunted eateries in the nation, Brentwood Restaurant & Wine Bistro. Come Explore its offerings with Haunted Journeys.
Clarence and Essie Bessent-McCorsley build this beautiful Victorian home in 1910. After Clarence passed away in the late 1940s, Essie often rented rooms to fishermen visiting Little River. The building was moved to the current location sometime in the' 60-'70s and Grandma Mary's started serving the public with good home cooking.
It closed in the '80s and stood empty until it was purchased and restored by the Stublick brothers from Brentwood, Long Island, who created a menu to please every taste.
When they were ready to retire, they sold the restaurant to Eric and Kim Masson from Saratoga Springs, New York.
Ownership may have changed, but the charm and tradition of this beautiful home remain the same as it did almost 100 years ago.
Employees of the establishment have had some strange and unusual experiences. Some say there are both a male and a female spirit in the building.
Most activity is in the kitchen and bar areas included objects moving unexplainably, baffling loud noises. It's also known for the wine glasses that somehow keep falling off the tables and also from their perch in the bar. They don't just fall, they smash with force to the ground. Disembodied footsteps have been captures on their surveillance cameras!
There is some poltergeist activity, as well. Equipment unexplainably starts by itself. Before they banned smoking in the restaurant ashtrays would inch to the edge of the table and then fall off. Now, since there are no ashtrays, the wine glasses get hit. So, we can assume that the phantoms here are not too fond of either smoking or drinking?
Many people go home, browse through their photos only to find they've been orb-bombed by ghostly energies manifesting as balls of light. Orbs are usually detected by cameras and not seen by the naked eye. There is also a shadow figure seen on the second floor and a face seen in an upstairs window when the building is empty.
