Rumors last year that Harpoon Louie's closed turned out to be false, but now, it seems, the restaurant has really shut its doors.
According to a report by Fox 29, the shuttered restaurant came as a surprise to Ginger Katzenmoyer, who was leasing the spot at 639 Schuylkill Road to a tenant. The news station reports:
A lawyer for the restaurant operator says his client informed Katzenmoyer of the shutdown by letter after she refused to continue to allow him to use the restaurant's liquor license.
He says his client had no choice.
Now after more than three decades, the place is for sale.
Phoenixville Patch the restaurant's crab deck opening in July. At the time, Frank Satiro said he had officially taken over the restaurant's operations in mid-June.
Katzenmoyer told Fox 29 that the tenant took liquor and other things from the restaurant and has fallen behind on the rent. A reporter from the news station tried calling the tenant's pizza shop in Pottstown, but was unable to get in touch with him for comment.
