Berkeley’s beloved Spenger’s Fish Grotto restaurant is no more.¬†After 128 years of serving the Bay Area, customers were alerted to the closure by a white piece of paper taped to the front door.

“Sorry for the inconvenience this may have caused you,” the note read.

Built in 1890, Spenger’s was one of the oldest restaurants in the Bay Area.

While there’s still no word on reason behind the “permanent” closure, a Public Notice of Application For Ownership Change was plastered on the window for the company that owns Joe’s Crab Shack, known as KRG JCS, LLC.
