The restaurant is now back open after owners say they had to clean up and repair the damage caused.

"Unfortunately. we had to close on Tuesday," said Mary Quillian Helms, the restaurant’s owner. "We only close Thanksgiving and Christmas and we were only closed one day during the pandemic. So, to be closed was kind of a big deal for us yesterday."
