HARRISONBURG, Va. -- A new owner took over Dave's Taverna after an auction on Monday.
Dave's Taverna sold for a total of $770,000.
The public foreclosure sale attracted close to 50 potential buyers. The new owner of Dave's Taverna does not want to give his name. He says he's not sure what he'll do with the building.
The previous owner, David Miller, says it was hard for him to watch his restaurant go to the highest bidder.
"Probably looking back, hindsight being 20/20, probably spending a little more time inside the restaurant making sure it was solid," said Miller.
He says he does not regret dedicating his time to improving the downtown area and working with the Harrisonburg Downtown Alliance.
