2018 Seasonal Closings List

Closed Sign
We’ve been getting a lot of emails and Facebook messages asking us about this year’s seasonal restaurant and bar closings. It’s a tad early still, so a few businesses are still deciding whether they are going to stay open or when they will close and, if so, for how long. That being said, this list may be updated from time to time, so please check back often.

If I missed anything, please let me know in the Comments sections and I will add it in.

    Thank you Jenn for this list. Do you know when the construction will start on Joe’s Rum Hut and Beach Bar? It looks like both are “Fall” reopenings so it would probably have to start soon? Are the delays due to permits and construction codes? We are looking forward to our November visit!

    Is Candie’s going to reopen at all? We missed her in April/May and are hoping she’ll be open for our Nov/Dec trip. We LOVE her food!

    Thanks Jen,
    Just booked for September and this will come in handy. So hope North Shore Deli and other favorites stay open. A lot of accomodations were boomed so have to wonder how “off” season September will actually be.
