A family-owned restaurant specializing in comfort food and diner classics in Burlington has shuttered its doors after five years.

Studebaker Pub and Diner, located at 2535 Appleby Line, at Dundas St., 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.

The restaurant’s last day of operations was on Feb. 29.
