SYLVAN BEACH – Cinderella’s Restaurant, a landmark near the shore of Oneida Lake, is officially under new ownership.

Donnie Carbone confirmed on his Facebook page that he has finalized the purchase of the property from the previous owners, th Farnach family. The Farnachs had previously announced that after 37 years in business the restaurant would not open for the summer 2019 season.

Carbone says the restaurant will continue to be called Cinderella's for a short while before undergoing some changes – including a new name. He says the eastern part of the property will be called Carbone's Beachside, and will continue to be an ice cream shop. The twelve-unit hotel will remain as well.

What’s also new is Carbone’s partnership with Bone Yard BBQ, which has a location on Roosevelt Drive in Utica. The western section of the property will be known as Bone Yard BBQ at Carbone's Beachside.

While many of the services will remain the same, Carbone says he’s expecting to make improvements throughout.

“The menu is going to stay pretty much the same. It's going to be more steak and seafood. We're going to open up the bar a little bit… on the west side here we have a bar, we have Bone Yard barbeque, and we have catering - so we can do just about anything for anybody, said Carbone on Thursday.

Carbone says he is in the process of acquiring a liquor license, securing vendors, and finding employees. They’re accepting applications and interviews in person on June 29th from 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.

If all goes well, Carbone says he hopes to reopen the restaurant as early as this weekend.
