Giants Camp Restaurant Closes After 60 Years
Posted October 06, 2006 at 12:58 AM


GIBSONTON - The last of the businesses founded by the late sideshow legends Al The Giant and his wife, Jeanie, the Half Woman, closed this week.

Giants Camp Restaurant, a community gathering place, quietly closed its doors after more than 60 years in operation.

The Tomainis built the restaurant as part of a fish camp and bait shop they opened in the mid 1940s.

"There will never a place like that again,” said Margaret Ingram, a cook at the restaurant for 35 years.

Tina Tomaini, granddaughter of the founders and landlord to restaurant operators David and Terry Wallace, said she didn’t think the restaurant would reopen.

Though she knew the restaurant was not going to remain open much longer, she was surprised by its abrupt closing Tuesday.

"It’s really heart wrenching,” she said. “It is like seeing another chapter in your life closing. But sometimes, things just have to happen."
