WALPOLE (WBSM) — An iconic Massachusetts restaurant is up for sale, as Walpole’s Red Wing Diner has hit the market.

Located just a mile from Gillette Stadium and Patriot Place in Foxboro, the Red Wing made its name on large portions of quality comfort food and a family atmosphere that brought full smiles and full stomachs to generations.

The Red Wing Diner has been a go-to for grub since your grandparents were in grade school.

The bar portion is the original 1920s Worcester Lunch Car diner that was placed along Route 1, and the restaurant has expanded since it opened in 1931.

People would come from miles around for Red Wing’s famous seafood – its fried clams may be more beloved than any served up along the South Shore, the SouthCoast or the Cape – as well as its pizza, pasta, turkey dinners and Jameson steak tips.

It was kind of one of those places that you took for granted that it would always be there and always be open – until it wasn’t.

On September 5, the Red Wing posted to its Facebook page that it would be temporarily closed for repairs. However, it never reopened and instead, a “For Sale” sign appeared outside last week.

The diner is listed with Jack Conway out of Mansfield, with Ed Tartfufo as the selling agent. The asking price is $1.35 million.

The Red Wing Diner last sold in 2008 to longtime employee Liam Murphy, who purchased it from his uncles, according to a Patch.com report.
