PRINCE WILLIAM COUNTY, Va. - An iconic Prince William County restaurant along the Potomac River will officially close its doors after a court battle.
Tim’s Rivershore Restaurant and Crabhouse has been a popular destination for three decades, but owner Tim Bauckman’s landlords told him in February that it would not be renewing his lease.
Bauckman filed a complaint in Prince William County circuit court to extend the lease.
CHR Properties, however, filed a counterclaim saying Bauckman owed nearly $500,000 in unpaid rent, late fees and damages to the property.
The court battle ended in an agreement that Bauckman must vacate the property no later than 5 p.m. on Sept. 30.
Bauckman’s lawyer says the agreement works out well for both parties since his restaurant will be open for one more summer season.
