MILFORD - A landmark restaurant in Milford is celebrating its 50th anniversary in business this week.

Rich Smith owns the Seven Seas restaurant on New Haven Avenue. He says his parents opened the restaurant in 1965, and it's been in the family ever since.

He says he plans to keep it that way.

“We're in our third generation now. After myself, my son Rick will be taking over, and he's working here now,” Smith told News 12.

The city of Milford honored the Seven Seas Tuesday evening with an official proclamation.
