Area residents won't necessarily have to pack the car to enjoy all that the beach has to offer this summer.

Rumfish Grille, open since April in the Great Southern Shopping Center on Washington Pike in Collier, is expected to open its outdoor venue, Rumfish Beach, this weekend.

“I like to call it a vacation without leaving the South Hills,” said Rumfish marketing director Dixie Smith.

Construction on the outdoor area began about a month after the restaurant opened, and the aim for the end product is an upscale, outdoor cabana bar.

Smith said the 15,000-square-foot outdoor area will include fire pits, torches, fountains and a bar in the middle.

“It feels like you're almost at the beach – like a little vacation,” she said.

The restaurant plans to open the outdoor area on Saturday, Smith said, with an official grand opening coming sometime in September.

Smith said the restaurant is looking into having different theme days for the outdoor area to add to the vacation feel. There also is a stage area for live music and DJs.

“It's such a soothing place because of the fire and the water,” she said of the cabana area. “We want everyone to feel like they're away on vacation.”
