Alibis was sold in early 2016 and then it was closed in September 2016 for remodeling and was given a new name. The restaurant never reopened and remains permanently closed. . The building stands empty.

This is one of our family's go-to places. Big menu, great specials, very accommodating and we've always enjoyed every meal. Dad & husband love their prime rib, and it's offered Thurs thru Sunday, I believe.
