Pat's Backwaters Too sold

Steak and seafood restaurant Pat's Backwaters Too, located at 1639 Bradley Park Drive in the Bradley Park shopping center, has been purchased by Columbus-based restaurant company DANESSA Inc.

In its place, DANESSA will open a new eatery called the Upper Krust Restaurant, which will offer gourmet pizza and Italian and Greek food. The company expects to open its doors in early May.

Ray March and Gabriele Freyberger, former owners of Pat's Backwaters Too, also own Pat's Backwaters near Lake Harding on Lick Skillet Road. They will continue to operate that location.

Kevin Wilkerson, owner of business brokerage company Vail Business Associates, facilitated the sale.
