Say goodbye to another restaurant in central New York. Zebbs Bar and Grill, on Seneca Turnpike in New Hartford, is closing its doors after 27 years in business.

Employees learned the restaurant will close Sunday, July 29th in a letter posted on the bulletin board inside the restaurant.

We regret to inform you all that on Sunday, 7/29/2019 at the end of days business, Zebbs New Hartford will be shutting its doors and closing the restaurant. I am proud to say that we made it 27 years all in part by the hard work, dedication, your professionalism and the commitment to service you provided. Thank you for all you have done to make yourself and the ones around you succeed and be the best. There are many reasons why the store is closing. None of it has to do with you. We have tried to fight the good fight against the on goings in Albany, competitive intrusions of other restaurants as well as other issues. The fact is that the store has lost money for the last two years due to a number of reasons, we just cannot incur the loss anymore.

The restaurant will stay open as long as staff continues to show up. If staff doesn't stay on board, they will have to shut down sooner.
