A Joe's Crab Shack in Duluth is one of 41 locations that abruptly closed amidst its parent company's bankruptcy proceedings.

Calls to the restaurant went unanswered Thursday afternoon, and restaurant review site Yelp deemed it closed based on user feedback. The Gwinnett site is also not listed on the company's website.

The Duluth location was included in a list of the 41 locations that closed without advance warning to employees, originally reported by Consumerist. No other Georgia locations were included on the list.

Joe’s Crab Shack’s parent company, Ignite Restaurant Group, did not return a request for comment. Ignite filed for bankruptcy in June. Landry’s, Inc. won an auction this month to acquire Joe’s Crab Shack and Brick House Tavern and Tap brands from Ignite for $57 million.
