I am bummed but not surprised. My in-laws live about a mile away so we have been going there yearly since they opened. I was last there in Oct 2012 and it seemed like they were barely hanging on. Huge, empty place on a Friday night. Their location did them no favors. They were so hidden off the road. It made me sad to see some guy with a sign board next to the highway advertising something like their gumbo or chowder. Our drinks were fine but the food was just ok. They did have some nice decor and a huge carved tiki.

I also liked having them close by as an escape hatch incase my in-laws made me nuts, I knew there was a mai tai nearby!

Bummer.
