On the restaurant’s Facebook page, the owner posted the following notice to customers:
“As many know, our building has been for sale for a long time, and our lease has been up. We've had ongoing and unresolved issues with the parking lot and signage; without that control or a voice, we've made the hard decision to move on. We appreciate all of the love and support we've received from the community over the years. Hopefully we will be back again one day soon. Take care and thank you!”
