More Amber Oaks Fun

Shortly after the gala Grand Opening of Amber Oaks, the ad above ran in the Lorain Journal on May 23, 1963. As you can see, the opening had been a big success. (Hey look at that--the little guy from the auto ads even made a cameo appearance in the ad!)

Here's another Amber Oaks newspaper ad from a few years later. This one (below) is from September 12, 1968.

Here's a look at the restaurant as it used to look in the early days. This shot (below) is from a June 1971 Golden Crescent Guide to Dining and Dancing column by Dennis Traster. The feature – which was a unique form of advertising – used to appear in the Journal and spotlighted a different restaurant each time.

And lastly, here's the restaurant as it looks today.
