Tavern on the Water in Charlestown has closed for good.
Reports of the restaurant—located on Pier 6 in the Charlestown Navy Yard—shutting its doors first surfaced last Wednesday, as Charlestown Patch reader Sylvia Carroll posted a notice in the blog section of the site, though she had no further information about the closure at the time.
Another blog post, written on Saturday, Nov. 24 on Adam’s Hospitality & Tourism Industry Blog, confirmed the announcement, saying the restaurant’s phone number is out of service and someone at one of Tavern on the Water’s sister restaurants, owned by Legendary Restaurant Group, had stated that Tavern would not be reopening.
And on Monday morning, the company posted an official announcement on the Tavern on the Water website:
Unfortunately, The Tavern On The Water has closed. We are happy to serve you right around the corner at our Max And Dylans CitySquare location, or any of our other fine restaurants listed below.
The reason for the closure is unknown at this time. However, an article on Grub Street Boston suggests that the Legendary Restaurant Group may be choosing to focus on its other restaurants, such as the new Sip Wine Bar and Kitchen and Avery Provision Co. in Downtown Crossing and a soon-to-open Burger Dive in Somerville.
The company also owns Scollay Square, Papagayo and two Max and Dylans restaurants in the Boston area, according to a Boston Business Journal article.
