The Rooster’s Beak, 215 10th St., announced Tuesday on Facebook that it would close Saturday night after four years in business.

Owners declined to comment when reached by phone.

“Words can not even come close to describe the gratefulness we have for all of you,” the Facebook post said of the restaurant’s staffers and customers. “We have learned so much and wish everyone the best.”

The Rooster’s Beak opened in August 2009, according to Augusta Chronicle archives.

Sad to hear this. Had some

Sad to hear this. Had some great food. Can't help but think if they were on Broad that this might've ended differently. Bordering Ellis Ave has a stigma attached to it, and with the following they developed even then, I feel like it may have thrived in a higher traffic location.

Why?

So why is it closing? Lack of support (business)? Local taxes/fees? Other taxes/costs? Security issues? Cleanliness downtown? Personal reasons? Some combination? Maybe The Chronicle could have someone do some actual reporting on this and find out? Seems like several other places downtown have closed recently also. I'd like to know why so maybe we/the city can address it.

Somewhere in the night a frequent poster weeps.

SS Augusta: The owners

SS Augusta: The owners haven't told anyone why they are closing. Other news outlets said they declined to comment. If the AC tried to get a comment, that would be helpful to know, but I'd say the answer would be the same.

Uhh... so do I need to type

Uhh... so do I need to type S.S. Augusta to not get it filtered? What's up with that, Sean?!

EDIT: Nevermind...I used an @ sign to denote I was talking to SS Augusta and it got filtered.

profanity filter

Yes, the @ and ss used together will trigger the profanity filter. Just use the edit button and change it.

SS... I can't think of many hospitality businesses closing this year downtown, besides Eros Bistro/Roosters Beak.

The recent new additions include Farmhaus Burgers, Boards Head Public House, and Whiskey Bar Kitchen.

The Craft & Vine restaurant is underway and the Sprint Food & Metro Market is moving along next to the common. The building at 901 Broad will have over 4k sq. ft. of commercial space and the development at 905 Broad includes the new restaurant on the bottom floor.

I'm sad too.

I love their beers and especially their tacos. Very sad to lose them.

It's tough down there. Those

It's tough down there. Those who paint it all glossy and fine are doing a disservice to the city and the people. The RBeak had a good following and knew how to operate. You could just tell. Maybe it'll come out that something other than lack of business caused the close.

Facts

Why is simply bringing up the facts considered painting something glossy?

Those who completely deny any type of progress are the problem.. If the Martinez area had that many new restaurants the same people would be praising the growth.
