It is with great disappointment and much heartache that I must announce that 97 Lake will be permanently closing its doors.

We looked at many renovation plans and investor opportunities, but it is clear that we cannot sustain the business given the current situation.

We are proud to have served the community at large, and especially the gluten free community.

However, that alone does not make for a successful business. We have looked at various options. If I cannot serve the gluten free community as part of our ongoing business, the restaurant does not meet my personal goals.

We have been unable to find the formula for success that allows us to be financially viable, while meeting the needs of the customers we wish to serve.

Therefore I have decided to shut down 97 Lake.
I appreciate ALL the kind words (and sometimes not) from our customers and I hope you understand we tried very, very hard to make it work.

I wish all of our customers much happiness and good health. We appreciate you very much and I hope we did not disappoint you too much.

Thank you and be well......97 Lake
