LongHorn Steakhouse in Boston's Fenway Neighborhood Has Closed

It looks like the sole Boston location of a casual steakhouse chain has closed its doors.

According to a poster on the Universal Hub site, LongHorn Steakhouse at the Landmark Center in the Fenway "abruptly closed" on Saturday, with a check on the chain's website showing that the restaurant has been removed from its location search and its specific page on the site now comes up as a 404 (page not found) error. Multiple calls placed to the Park Drive dining spot did not go through late this morning, with the phone ringing for a long period of time without going to voicemail. Another location of LongHorn Steakhouse was not able to confirm anything about the closure of the Fenway location, and we are currently waiting to hear back from the chain on why the restaurant might have closed.

[August 11 update: Eater Boston confirms that the Fenway location of LongHorn Steakhouse has indeed closed for good, with Hunter Robinson (manager of media relations and communications) saying the closure was a "business decision."]

Other locations of LongHorn Steakhouse in Eastern Massachusetts appear to remain in operation, including ones in Reading, Tewksbury, Pembroke, Mansfield, Franklin, Marlborough, and others. (With the Boston location closing, there are currently no more LongHorn restaurants inside Route 128.)

LongHorn Steakhouse's parent company is Darden, which operates such chains as Olive Garden, The Capital Grille, Yard House, and Seasons 52.

The address for the now-closed LongHorn Steakhouse in the Fenway was 401 Park Drive, Boston, MA, 02215.
