An Arkansas culinary icon will be closing its doors this summer.
Cajun’s Wharf has announced that the restaurant will be closing on Saturday, June 1.
Founded in 1975, Cajun’s Wharf has been a mainstay in Little Rock as one of the premier destination restaurants in Arkansas. Located on the banks of the Arkansas River, the restaurant has offered fresh seafood, live entertainment and river views for 44 years.
Mary Beth Ringgold told the Arkansas Democrat-Gazettethat market trends and upkeep are contributing factors to closing the restaurant. In addition, the lease on the 20,000 square-foot building, located at 2400 Cantrell Rdin Little Rock, is ending on June 30.
From now until the restaurant’s closing, Cajun’s Wharf will have several special offerings, including daily specials, fresh crawfish, and a “Thursday Throwback” bar menu.
Ringgold will continue to operate two other restaurants, Capers Restaurant and Market and Copper Grill.
Cajun’s Wharf will be open Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. for lunch, and Monday through Thursday from 5 to 10 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 5 to 11 p.m. for dinner.
