More than six months after filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, Coakleys Irish Restaurant and Pub in New Cumberland has closed.
The Irish-themed Coak-leys was among the most recognized restaurants in the Harrisburg area since opening about 40 years ago.
It always was a popular St. Patricks Day spot as well as a gathering place for those watching televised sporting events. Diners came for the diverse menu of American and Irish specialties ranging from wings and burgers to boxty (potato pancake) and fish and chips.
A notice posted on the restaurants front door Thursday indicated the closing was related to an order by the U.S. Middle District Court of Pennsyl-vania.
We would like to thank everybody for their pa-tronage over the years, and we hope you root for us to return to business soon. Please monitor Facebook for updates on our status, the note said.
Late last year, Coakleys owner, Tim Hogg, said the restaurant filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. At the time, Hogg said closing was not an option.
He did not return phone calls after the restaurant closed Thursday.
Regular customer Kelly Moran, 24, of New Cum-berland said he learned of the closing when he was at the restaurant Wednesday night. He said he was told Coakleys employees found out about the closing on Wednesday.
