In early 2011 the consensus in Milton was the location was cursed. A string of restaurants and bars at the north-west corner of Derry & Ontario Street had opened and closed, sometimes remaining in business only a scant few months. Then along came the Radojcic family. “The key is to give people a reason not to leave Milton” said Roger Radojcic Roger.
along with his brother Patrick, Mama Rad (Betty Radojcic) and Janet Radojcic created something that South Milton solely needed. A place where everybody knows your name, and they’re always glad you came. They greatly changed the dynamic and expectations of what a Sports Bar is and became the local hangout and centre for a growing Milton community. The menu has always had a gastro flair with both pub house favorites but also included a secret arsenal of special soups and authentic recipes from Mama Rad’s family cook book.
Rad Brothers was also a brand – From a founding member of the old “Taste of Milton” at Milton District High School all the way to the Rad Fest music festival that grew in size every year until they outgrew their present location and had to move to the Milton Community Park to hold the ever increasing crowds. So it was with mixed emotions that they announced the closure of The Rad Brothers which will take place on January 31st. The decision was not taken lightly but the restaurant industry has undergone significant changes especially in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.
“We want to express our deepest gratitude to each and every one of you—our cherished customers—for being a part of our Rad Brothers family. Over the years, we’ve shared countless memorable nights, created new friendships, and become an indelible part of each other’s lives. Your support has been the heartbeat of our establishment, and we are honored to have been a part of your cherished memories.”
“As one chapter closes, another begins, and we look forward to new adventures on the horizon. While it is indeed a sad farewell, we are excited about the future and the opportunities that lie ahead. “Come for the game, stay for the party” has been our mantra, and we hope to remain a cherished part of your memories for many years to come.” – Roger, Patrick, Mama Rad & Janet Radojcic, Sandra.Angie, Sandra and Janet A few of the Radojcic family.
