Visitors' Reviews and Comments
Going through the Restaurant guide I came upon the Green Lantern. I read the description and type of food etc. To me who lives in the United States for the past 50 years, having been born in Bermuda in 1942 I remember the Green lantern more than any other Restaurant of the day. AS an 8 year old Child I would walk to the Restaurant from the back roads where Gibbons had Houses and Apts called Ascot Apts and would get my Hot Dogs or hamburger and also meat pies and take them back home and enjoy my food. My Father also would bring home food from the Green Lantern.
Every time since I left Bermuda and came back to visit, my visit had to include the Green lantern. It was never much on looks it was always about good home cooked food. I speak of over 61 years ago! I do not remember the owners names but as I type this I can see the Mother, the Husband and their Son behind the counter. Hope you do not mind me writing so much but it bought back so many fond and happy times!!!

Thank you so much for the response. I did not expect you to print my story it was just a joy to read about the Green lantern that I had to speak on it. I do not remember the names of the owners but I can see them in my minds eye. They were very good Christian people. The Son always had a smile on his face. I understand he passed away at a young age. I can see his Mother as clear as day. She wore glasses and she was a hard working lady. Always something nice to say to people. I remember that if you were hungry and did not have the money they would give food to you. I miss those times, I miss Bermudians such as they were. Back in the day no one was aware of color in that restaurant or around it. You were Bermudian. The Father was a quiet Man unless he knew you. No one played games with him!
