A Toms River institution unveils a major change Friday afternoon as The Office Restaurant and Lounge opens “The West” which formally was known as the West Dining Room.  The room has been completely renovated, is much brighter with high top tables and chairs and offers a very casual atmosphere.  Everything is brand new, including more than 12 flat-screen TV’s which will be a welcome sight to those looking for a place to watch their favorite game.

General Manager Nick Pagano said the change was made to better serve their regular customers as well as introduce new ones to Toms River’s “place to meet and eat for 42 years.”

Erbe Builders, Inc. of Toms River handled the construction of “The West” which officially opens at 4 p.m. today.
