3 restaurant closures in Mississauga and Burlington in March 2024

We all have our go-to places to satisfy the hunger from within, and when these establishments close for good, it’s difficult to find one just like it.

Here are three restaurants that shut down their businesses in march in Mississauga and Burlington.

Studebaker Pub and Diner

Studebaker Pub and Diner, located at 2535 Appleby Line, at Dundas St. in Burlington, was a local favourite and had been featured multiple times on Insauga’s list of top brunch spots.

The restaurant offered a variety of appetizers including nachos, Cajun shrimp and chicken wings.

For main dishes, patrons could enjoy a selection of burgers such as crispy chicken, fish, or beef served with a side of fries. Other menu options included ribs, tacos and various kinds of pasta.

There was also a wide selection of desserts from red velvet and carrot cakes to apple crumble, pies, and ice cream.

According to the restaurant’s main website, all the food was freshly prepared in-house.

The restaurant also boasted an extensive menu of handcrafted drinks and beers for customers to choose from.

The owners of Studebaker Pub and Diner made the difficult announcement in a post on their official Instagram account.

“It is with mixed emotions that we announce the permanent closure of Studebaker,” the statement read.

“We are immensely grateful for your loyal patronage. This decision wasn’t easy, but we close with gratitude for the amazing community that supported us.”

The owners did not provide specifics regarding the reason for the closure or mentioned any plans to relocate or open a new restaurant (with a different name) in the future.

“While our doors are closed, the memories will live on in our hearts. Thank you for being a part of our Studebaker story,” the message concluded.

Pier 87 Fish Market and Grill

Pier 87 Fish Market and Grill in Mississauga closed in the Food District on March 12, and workers appeared to be clearing out the location.

The establishment offered a variety of frozen seafood, alongside a menu that included fish and chips, lobster rolls, shucked oysters, and a wild salmon burger.

Attempts to reach the restaurant by phone and email were not returned.

It’s unclear if Pier 87 is moving to another location, renovating or closing permanently.

For now, it is not possible to order food online or in person.

Square One has Pier 87 Fish Market and Grill listed as closed but on Google Maps it is listed as open.

The first Pier 87 location opened at Upper Canada Mall in Newmarket in spring 2018 followed by a Square One opening on April 1, 2019.

The Newmarket outlet has since permanently shut down and is no longer mentioned on the Pier 87 website.

Swiss Chalet

A longstanding Swiss Chalet located at 2975 Eglinton Ave. W. at Winston Churchill Boulevard in Mississauga recently closed its doors.

A closure notice was posted on the windows while the Swiss Chalet branding was removed.

The restaurant had served customers for over 20 years and was a source of nostalgia for some long-time residents.

Though it wasn’t a permanent closure, the restaurant is planning to move its location to 6975 Meadowvale Town Centre Circle, a space once occupied by CIBC Bank.

The location change comes after several Swiss Chalet outlets in Mississauga closed in recent years, including one at 6430 Erin Mills Pkwy. and another at 4555 Hurontario St. in 2020, likely due to pandemic lockdowns.

Swiss Chalet first opened in Toronto in 1954 and according to its website, it now has seven locations in Mississauga.
