The Jersey Boys also popped in for some fun following their show.

DJ Manny Ramos kept the party going long after it officially ended, turning the bar and main restaurant floor into an impromptu dance floor. Guests dined on the restaurants extensive menu including Watermelon Arugala salad, Lobster Rolls, The Original Mini Burgers, Grandpa’s Pizza with a molasses wheat crust and creamy Cheese Grits among other items.

The restaurant’s photo booth was packed all night with guests taking their “First” photo.
