ASHLAND, Ore. — A popular restaurant and bar in Ashland is now closed.
Alex’s Restaurant locked its doors Saturday after the landlords placed a lien on the property and retook possession.
According to the original owner of the restaurant, Alex Reid, the restaurant had been struggling for some time. Reid, who is still the namesake for the restaurant, sold it to its current owners nine years ago, but last spring they were forced to declare bankruptcy.
The restaurant has been a part of the Ashland community since 1986. Reid says he hasn’t had any say in the restaurant since the declaration of bankruptcy. He says he has no plans of getting back into the business.
The current owners of the restaurant have been unavailable for comment.
