Kozlak’s Royal Oak is saying goodbye. Soon.

Co-owners Mark and Lynn Satt have announced that the doors will close following dinner service on March 15.

The couple owns the 36-year-old business but not the building, which is being demolished and replaced by a senior housing complex.

Two other dates of note: On March 8, Mark Satt’s band the JimTones are going to play a final party (Satt is the group’s drummer), and the restaurant’s last brunch is March 9.

As for a new location, “We’re still looking,” said Lynn Satt. “We thought we had something but it fell through last week. What we'd really like to do is join up with an existing restaurant and run it. We have such a fabulous staff here, and we want to take them with us."

Interested in buying a Kozlak’s memento? A number of the restaurant’s fixtures will be auctioned off here.
