“I am closing KJ’s as of today (Saturday, Aug. 13). I will try to get on soon and thank and acknowledge all those strong supporters through the years,” the Facebook post said.

The post has over 100 comments of customers wishing owner Kevin Hall the best of luck on his next endeavor and thanking him for years of great food.

“So sorry to hear this,” said Chelsea Emmons. “Your restaurant was the first local place we tried when we moved out here last year and we all loved it. Best of luck, and I hope that whatever comes next for you is even better.”

“Kevin, we are so sad to hear this,” said Joan Hamilton. “The diner has been our go to place so many Saturday mornings (and Friday nights too) for probably 30 years. Such great food and a chance to catch up with what’s going on in town. We appreciate all you have done for Germantown as well.”
