SURF CITY, NJ — The very popular Scojo's Restaurant in Surf City faced a fire overnight Wednesday, January 20.

Despite it being a tough year for restaurant businesses due to COVID-19, Scojo's adapted and made sure they operated safely for their customers and employees. This fire is another huge hit for the restaurant. 

The restaurant made an announcement this morning around 8am that read:

What a hard morning for our Scojos family. We suffered a terrible fire at the restaurant last night.No one was present at the time of the fire so we are grateful no one was hurt. But this is a heartbreaking blow in an already difficult year. As you all know, we were invested in making the restaurant better every day despite COVID 19. We poured blood, sweat and tears into the place. Heartbreaking to see our beloved restaurant as the way she stands today. 
But we will persevere like we always do and hope to see all of our smiling patrons back soon!
Shout out to Surf City Fire, Ship Bottom Fire, High Point Fire, Stafford  Fire and Manahawkin Fire Cos that were on the scene last night!
