Anthony’s Beach Café on Spokane’s South Hill is closing.
Its last day is Friday, Dec. 2.
“This was a very difficult decision to close the Café,” Anthony’s president and founder, Budd Gould, said in a news release Dec. 2. “We tried something new taking our signature seafood to a casual restaurant off the water. Unfortunately, it did not succeed. We are very grateful for the support we have received from the community and look forward to continuing to serve our guests at our other restaurants.”
Anthony’s Restaurants are locally owned by Budd Gould, the Gould family and a group of senior managers. The privately held company has seafood restaurants throughout the Pacific Northwest. Anthony’s also owns its own seafood company at Seattle’s Pier 91.
Anthony’s Beach Café, located in the Regal Plaza, opened in October 2014.
“Of primary importance to us was the future of our team members as we contemplated this closure,” Herb Gould, vice president of Anthony’s, said in the same news release. “It is our plan to offer as many as possible positions at other Anthony’s locations.”
Anthony’s has two other local restaurants: Anthony’s at Spokane Falls and Anthony’s at Riverstone in Coeur d’Alene.
