"Despite the colder temps, locals (and seagulls) are still flocking to get their hands on our classic menu items like [hamburgers], [hot dogs], [French fries], lobster rolls, clam chowder, chicken fingers, onion rings," the establishment said in a Facebook post Saturday. "We're so happy to welcome you back for our 72nd season."

"Every year, family tradition, come over to Sully's to get a couple of dogs," Robin Carson, of West Roxbury, said while bundled up, wearing a scarf.

Sullivan's said Friday it would be opening its doors this weekend and bringing the heat amid Boston's colder temperatures.

Although the Castle Island location reopened Saturday, the Hub Hall location is open every day, and there's a new location opening for the first time this spring in Hanover on Washington Street.

In a video posted to Facebook on Friday, Sullivan's teased the new South Shore location, saying it would include everyone's favorites, plus South Shore bar pizza, local beer and more.
