1. It’s family owned and operated. Started in 1976 by James and Soteria Roumbas, Ye Olde Mill St. Pub in Mays Landing has been family owned and operated ever since. With four decades under their belts, the Roumbas family could be sitting back and relaxing. Instead, they’re re-inventing … which brings us to No. 2.
For Tim Glenn, giving back is family tradition.

6. They’re patriotic. Whether it’s Military Monday — 15 percent discount all day for active duty or retired military — or Thank You Thursday — 15 percent discount all day for EMTs, firefighters and police — the Roumbas family is interested in acknowledging the work and sacrifices of our military and/or service people.
