The first restaurant to open in the small community of Robins will close today.

Lebowski’s Bar and Grill, 925 Robins Square Dr., will shut its doors for the last time just a few weeks away from what would have been its two-year anniversary, the restaurant announced on Facebook.

“It’s with the heaviest heart we have to announce Tuesday will be our last day of business just a few weeks shy of our 2 year anniversary. Last year’s 7 month road construction proved to be too big of an obstacle for our small business to overcome,” the post reads.

Lebowski’s opened in 2016 as the first and only restaurant in Robins, a city of about 3,500 people.
