Three restaurant landmarks in Chester County are currently undergoing major changes and will soon reopen under new management, writes Michael Klein for the Philadelphia Inquirer

The fine-dining destination Vickers in Exton closed last year after five decades of serving delicious meals to the public. The restaurant is currently being turned into a White Dog Café which is expected to open its doors once again sometime in 2023. 

Meanwhile, Ship Inn in Exton recently changed ownership and will soon become VK Brewing. The inn recently appeared on an episode of Food Network’s Restaurant Impossible, but the owners decided to sell even after the intervention. 

Finally, Brickette Lounge, on Pottstown Pike between Exton and West Chester, was recently acquired by Craig Russell and Josh McCullough, owners of West Chester’s Slow Hand and Square Bar. The location is in the process of being renovated. The new owners plan to keep the old-time, family-friendly western theme with line dancing. Additionally, they plan to add pits and a smokehouse for Texas barbecue. It is currently unknown when the eatery will officially open its doors.
