After nearly four decades of serving up some of Lower Greenville’s fanciest New England-style seafood, Daddy Jack’s is calling it quits.

CultureMap reports that the longtime Lower Greenville eatery will close its doors next month, along with its next door neighbor and music venue The Crown & Harp. The spot has long been a favorite of Lower Greenville dwellers, thanks to its low-key date night ambiance and perfectly prepared lobster. Fortunately, the Downtown Fort Worth outpost of the restaurant will remain open,

It’s unclear what will become of the building at 1916 Greenville Avenue, but the iconic entertainment and dining district has seen a lot of dramatic changes in recent years. Back in December, Clark Food & Wine and C’Viche called it quits, and comfort food destination Remedy shuttered to reconcept as a new Chinese-American eatery. Down the street at buzzy spots like Rapscallion, though, dining rooms are packed.

Daddy Jack’s will serve its final lobsters on May 6. Don’t be surprised if getting a reservation in these final weeks comes as a challenge as fans say goodbye to this hallowed eatery.
