A little more than four years after opening, the Forgotten Mile Ale House, within walking distance of Dewey Beach, is closing.

The impending closure was announced on the restaurant’s Facebook page Dec. 28. According to the post, the final day of service is Sunday, Jan. 5.

“We have recently decided that we are going to close down after the new year,” said the post. “We want to thank all of our customers over the last four years for your continuous support.”

The site is home to the former Captain’s Table. After a nearly year-long renovation of the building, Wilmington natives, brothers and restaurateurs Mike and Steve Lucy opened Forgotten Mile Ale House in October 2015. The Lucys also own Ulysses Gastropub in Wilmington and Six Paupers in Hockessin.

The message on Facebook says Forgotten Mile will be open every day, with the exception of New Year's Day, until closing.

 “We are preparing some fantastic food specials for that night,” says the announcement.

As a token of appreciation, Forgotten Mile is having a closing special. According to the closure announcement, the restaurant is offering 20 percent off everyone's entire food and draft beer tab through Sunday, Jan. 5.

“It has been a fantastic experience and journey with all of you,” says the announcement.
