About Us

After retiring from the U.S Navy, Latham "Bum" Dennis officially opened Bum's Restaurant in downtown Ayden on October 10, 1966. For around 46 years, Bum's has tweaked the same menu items for breakfast, lunch and dinner according to feedback from customers. Their cooking styles date back to the 1930's when the entire Dennis family contributed to cooking everything according to how most southern folks were cooking in their own homes.

Bum's Restaurant now operates through second and third generation family members. Bum's son, Larry, and his wife, Teresa, maintain the day-to-day functions of the restaurant. Even their three daughters assist with the restaurant.  To get to know even more about us, Friend us on Facebook!!
