INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – We have bad news for fans of the Indianapolis Colts Grille—the restaurant closed its doors for good after downtown Fourth of July festivities.
The restaurant first opened in August 2011 across from Circle Center Mall on West Washington Street, and has served as a popular spot for Colts fans to gather before the team’s home games. It was best known for serving up burgers and featuring sports memorabilia.
An employee confirmed the closure to FOX59, although the restaurant’s social media pages made no mention of it Tuesday and it’s unclear why the restaurant is closing.
The Indianapolis Colts Grille’s website eventually posted the following message Tuesday:
Thank you for your patronage
We thank you for your 6+ years of patronage but unfortunately we are closed permanently. If you have gift card questions, please email a copy of the front and the back of the card AND a copy of the original purchase receipt, along with an address for refund to Coltsgrille@g3restaurants.com.
It’s the second Colts-themed restaurant to close in recent years. In 2013, the Blue Crew Sports Grill shut down over financial difficulties and tax trouble.
