The Tinley Park Charleyhorse restaurant will soon shutter its doors, representatives said. Locations in New Lenox and Munster, Ind., will remain open, as will 94 West in Orland Park, which shares the same owners.
The co-owner of the Charleyhorse restaurant says the time has come to close the Tinley Park location, but the spot in New Lenox will remain open. “The way we see it, we will now have more time to focus on other two Charleyhorse branches and 94 West, as well,” Maria Sord said in an email. “Not taking Tinley’s closure as anything negative at all.

A signed lease is required to petition for a liquor license. Gellis could not be reached to comment why he's not pursuing…
