PROGRESS Billy Shumate, foreground, Ricky Williams and Johnny Sanders, all of Billy Shumate Construction, work Wednesday on the main entrance of Montana's Bar-B-Q &Seafood Restaurant on Front Street.
Owner Ken Montana hasn't released an official opening date, but did say he hopes to open by the end of the year.
The restaurant has been under construction for three years. "Construction problems and procrastination on my part has been the reason it has taken so long," Montana said.
