SPRING TWP., Pa. -

A seafood restaurant that was revived after nearly two decades has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

Seafood Shanty in Spring Twp., Berks Co., made the move last week, according to court documents.

The restaurant opened in February 2012, about 18 years after the original Seafood Shanty closed because of tax problems.

The restaurant was revived by a longtime fan.

Seafood Shanty remains open in Broadcasting Square.
