A popular local restaurant is closed and it’s uncertain whether or not it will reopen.

A sign on Bishop’s Buffet at SouthPark Mall in Moline, Illinois says the restaurant is temporarily closed for repairs. 

Customers said they were told Sunday was the last day of operation for that Bishop’s location.

Five years ago, a Davenport, Iowa Bishop’s location closed for remodeling but never reopened.  The Bishop’s at Kennedy Mall in Dubuque, Iowa closed January 3 after 40 years there.  The owner reportedly cited economic circumstances in his decision to close.

The Bishop’s location at SouthPark has been in business for more than three decades.
