Gunnings Closed?

Does anyone know why Gunnings is closed? I am in town for the day and tried to call to get takeout to take back to my airport hotel, no answer. Drove by there a little while ago and it looks good and closed - like maybe longterm. Website isn't working today either.

I noticed that there are very recent (last week) reviews on Yelp and TripAdvisor.

  1. Sorry, I should have specified….I was at the Hanover location, on Parkway.

    1. I was told today by the owner of Triple Nines that Gunning's is temporarily closed while they sort out a tax issue. All liquor licenses in MD are renewed every May 1. If you owe taxes, your liquor license isn't renewed until the outstanding taxes are paid. At any rate, the word is that Gunning's will reopen once they're straight with the state.

      1. The people who used to own Blobs Park in Jessup are opening a German restaurant in the Gunnings location. We saw them taking down the Gunnings sign today.
