Recently Closed

All good things must come to an end, and unfortunately that’s also the case for restaurants. Here’s a look at some of the Berks-area restaurants that have recently closed.

Decades Speakeasy (The Pit Stop Tavern)
961 N. Reading Ave, Boyertown 19512

Decades Speakeasy, which recently rebranded from the Pit Stop Tavern, closed on April 27. The restaurant had recently gotten a reboot, selling off its auto racing memorabilia and replacing it with local history and reopening as Decades.

On April 27, Decades had a Facebook post that said, “Due to unfortunate events we will sadly not be opening the doors this evening.”

The property has been purchased by the investment group that owns Iezzi’s on Third in Boyertown and Doc’s Irish Pub in Gilbertsville, according to posts on those restaurants’ social media channels. They plan to remodel before opening their new restaurant, Barrel & Ale.

Hoss’s Steak and Seafood
121 Centre Ave, Leesport 19533

The Leesport location for Hoss’s Steak and Seafood closed in early April. The restaurant, one of more than 30 in the Pennsylvania-based chain, opened in 2003 and was the only Hoss’s location in Berks County.

Signatures Cafe by Angell
2846 Main St, Morgantown 19543

Signatures Cafe was one of two anchors for the Morgantown Farmers Marketplace which opened in late 2018. We visited in January and enjoyed Angell’s soul food. Unfortunately, the Marketplace closed at the end of March. Chef Angell continues her catering business in her home state of Delaware.

Mad Anthony’s
2846 Main St, Morgantown 19543

Mad Anthony’s is another business that was affected by the closure of Morgantown Farmers Marketplace. The butcher shop and sandwich shop still operates its Mobile Mess Hall and is looking for options to remain in the Morgantown community.

Billy Burger and Bakery
650 Crossings Blvd, Elverson 19520

We visited Billy Burger in June 2017 and fell in love with their burgers. Unfortunately, the restaurant closed in February 2019 after itially making some changes to its menu.
