Rohrer's Tavern From Restaurant Impossible To Close

Rohrer's Tavern in North Bend, Ohio, which was featured on season 5 of Restaurant Impossible, will close after business this Friday, April 25th.  Rohrer's Tavern has been open for 66 years, with the current owner owning it since 2009.  The restaurant cited a bad winter, dismal sales, and circumstances beyond their control as reasons for closing, and posted the following status on their Facebook page:
"This year has not been great for me so far, with the passing of my father, a horrible winter, dismal sales and many circumstances beyond my control, it is with great sorrow that I am announcing the closing of the Tavern. April 25th will be our last day. I want to thank everyone that has supported me and helped me along the way. Without the great crew and awesome friends I have, I wouldn’t have made it this far. I gave it my all, countless hours, sleepless nights, blood, sweat and many tears. It is my hope that everyone will join us this week for our best week ever, before I shut the doors for one last time."
The owner Lisa also stated on the same Facebook status, "My parents have a business, Harvey's marine. I will be focusing my attention on getting the business up and running, like it used to, since my Dad passed. I need to generate income for my mom."

This will be the eighth restaurant from season 5 (2012-2013) of Restaurant Impossible to close, and the Restaurant Impossible Update Page has been updated to show this.


  1. To be honest, I'm surprised it hung on as long as it did.

  2. I was there about a year after the makeover. Was there early on a weekend where it had been raining hard. We were one of two customers there that morning. Food was great. Sad that it's closing.

  3. Rohrer's was THE placed for fish. But I couldn't afford them anymore. The prices kept going up and the pieces of fish were getting smaller. I still miss their tarter sauce.
