Bulldog Ale House is shutting down

Bulldog Ale House is no longer in operation because of multiple problems with the building

The Bulldog Ale House on Route 31, a popular McHenry restaurant, has been shut down due to its extensive water damage.

Bulldog Ale House was reportedly shut down on Sept. 19 due to structural damage of the building and slow business.

Located at 1501 State Rte 31, it has shut down because of a lot of water damage in the building’s infrastructure.

During Bulldogs’ inspection, it was observed that the building sustained a lot of water damage.

“We just needed to get repairs on the building because we had a lot of water damage, especially after a bunch of the storms that happened over the summer,” said Faith Negele, an MCHS senior and former Bulldog employee. “The ceilings literally leaked.”

Business was also slow at the restaurant, and they did not have enough patronage to stay open.

“Business was very slow,” said senior Juliana Fontanetta, another former employees. “I used to be a host there, and I used to get cut very early, like, I would get cut at 6 o’clock, when I should be there until 9.”

Fontanetta also said that Bulldogs will be replaced with something, and Negele said she had heard it might be turned into another one of Bulldog’s chain restaurants.

Negele said this regarding the rumored replacement: “I am pretty sure there are rumors that Honeyberry Cafe, which is Bulldog’s other chain, but I do not know if they’re actually gonna take it over.”
