Kennedy's restaurant closes
Updated 1:40 p.m. Monday
URBANA — Kennedy's Restaurant at Stone Creek Golf Course served its last meal on Sunday, owner Luke Kennedy said Monday.
Kennedy said he's not in a position to redeem unused gift certificates at this point, but hopes to in a few weeks. Customers should monitor the restaurant's website for news on that, he said.
"We are sad to see the closing of Kennedy's," said Mike Martin of The Atkins Group, which developed Stone Creek subdivision. "However, at the same time we are very excited to move forward and explore new possibilities for the wonderful space at the restaurant and banquet facility."
Kennedy's has been at Stone Creek since May 2000. Before that, it was located at Sunnycrest Mall in Urbana.
Kennedy's was formerly known as The Lamplighter and Rick's, An American Cafe prior to Luke Kennedy buying the business.
