Agnes, located at 416 E. Third St. in Dayton, has reopened after a temporary closure due to a water pipe burst on Nov. 15.

“We would like to express our heartfelt gratitude for the unwavering support and loyalty from our wonderful community and valued customers,” a Nov. 21 post on the restaurant’s Facebook page said. “We can’t thank you enough for standing by us during these challenging times, and we are excited to welcome you back to Agnes.”

The water pipe burst resulted in significant damage that required immediate attention, the original Facebook post on Nov. 15 stated.

The restaurant has returned to regular operating hours — 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

Agnes opened in the Wympee building across from The Barrel House in 2021 and has been a Dayton staple since 2011. The restaurant is named after owner Jose Estremera’s late mother, Agnes, and specializes in Caribbean cuisine, a reflection of his mother’s Trinidadian roots.
