After 72 years in the restaurant business, a Somerset staple is on the market.

Magoni's Ferry Landing at 681 Riverside Ave. has been a town fixture since 1951, a comfortable gathering spot with simple and delicious dishes.

The property, being advertised as a turnkey operation, is now for sale for $1.25 million. It's been family owned and operated for decades and is currently run by third-generation owner Jeff Magoni.

From its iconic giant sign that you can see from across the Taunton River to its standard menu packed full of family favorites and comfort food, Magoni's — which remains open for business — will be missed by the many, young and old, who have walked through the doors over the years. The idea, of course, is that it will remain a restaurant under new ownership, but that remains to be seen.

To this day, the interior appears frozen in time with a warm, nostalgic, homelike feeling.

Magoni's was always known as the hot spot in Somerset where locals and visitors alike met up.
