Add another Hudson Valley restaurant to the list of local places that have closed their doors recently.

Whistling Willie's Fishkill location in the Shop Rite Plaza right on Rt. 9 is officially closed for business. Their Cold Spring location is still operational.

It was kind of surprising to me to learn the news the way I did, as I was driving by the Fishkill location the other day and noticed there were barely any cars in the parking lot.  I pulled up to the front door and found the sign below posted:

Upon further research, it looks like they made an announcement on their facebook page on July 16, stating that it was their last week in Fishkill.

We are thankful for all the memories made, the dedication from hard working staff, the loyal customers and all the laughs.  We are focusing on the Cold Spring location and decided it was best to step away from this store front.  It just made the most sense fro a business standpoint.  We hope you come visit us in Cold Spring!  We look forward to seeing warm and welcoming faces #goodbyefornow #coldspringstrong

Customers seemed surprised at the news, commenting on the post that they were disappointed to hear it and will miss the Fishkill location.

Representatives from Whistling Willie's declined to comment on the situation.
