Owner Rick Thomas said the business, which has been located in the city since November 1998, ceased operations after the Saturday evening shift.
He cited “lack of business” as the reason for the closure, but thanked the patrons who have supported the business over the past 12 1/2 years.
Known for its wings, karaoke and other entertainment, the restaurant was widely supported throughout the first 10 years, but business began to decline in recent years, Mr. Thomas said.
He said he hopes to sell the restaurant.
