The Golden Dolphin swims again.

The iconic Main Street diner reopened its doors today, the first time in 47 days, after it was seized by the state July 26 over unpaid taxes.

The new owners, Spiros Dimas and Peter Tsadilas, acquired the restaurant around a month ago and paid off the existing debt. They’re now continuing the iconic diner’s legacy under the same name.

The Golden Dolphin now will operate under modified hours, 7 a.m.-11 p.m., seven days a week.
