Newport Beach Restaurant That Once Hosted John Wayne Closes

The restaurant was the first Newport Beach establishment to hold a liquor license when it opened in 1922. Dan Marcheano, its current owner, bought it in 1982.
Through the years, Marcheano tried to expand with not one, but two Arches restaurants. Arches On the Water didn't last and was replaced with The Dock. The remaining Arches stood its ground until last Wednesday night, when, The Daily Pilot reports, it closed with its phone number disconnected and the doors locked.
