    The website says renovating but there are rumors that Barney's closed. It's my Tuesday night place so I'll have to find someplace else at least for this year.

    I wonder if they plan to just focus on their new place, Melt Away? Everything seems to change when restaurants add locations or different concepts.

    I am trying to ignore the rumors and hoping someone has the real answer.
    On one of the FB pages there is much speculation.
    Their FB page has not been updated for a few weeks.

    My my husband loves their burgers!

    Yes, unfortunately Barney's is now closed. Circumstances regarding the closure do not need to be discussed on a public forum

    Meltaway is still open and is owned/managed by several people.

    What do you mean "circumstances regarding the closure do not need to be discussed...?

    My feeling is people are more curious if Barney’s is reopening rather than any circumstances that may cause it’s closure. The post/notice on their website is unclear and results in people asking the question.

    They will not be reopening. The circumstances behind the closing are due to personal matters and are not business related.

    exactly right peg.
    although their personal issues are private, they need to make things clear about their business.

    Ron and Eline need to update their FB and or web pages with an accurate posting that leaves no room for guessing.

    I am sure it will happen in due time. Curious tourists need patience.
