Frisky Dolphin to close on Pensacola Beach after this


The Frisky Dolphin is closing its doors this weekend after seven years in business, owner Kevin Hausfeld announced in a social media statement on Wednesday evening.

Though the post came to a shock to its loyal customers, who have left nearly 400 comments on the Facebook post sharing their favorite memories at the beach bar and grill, and well wishes to Hausfeld and his staff. He said their landlord gave only two weeks’ notice that they were being evicted following a summer’s worth of failed negotiations.

Now, “Farewell Frisky” is splashed across on the restaurant’s letter board.

The landlord did not return the News Journal’s calls requesting comment Thursday.

Frisky Dolphin Sunset Oyster Bar & Grill on Pensacola Beach is closing as Labor Day Weekend winds down this weekend. Due to a landlord dispute, the eatery's last day open will be Sunday, September 3.

Hausfeld and co-owner Michael “Mike” Hall were not only forced to come to terms with the news themselves, but then break the news to their staff, which was even more heartbreaking.

“The employees losing their jobs, it’s really the hardest thing to really swallow. Michael and I will survive. But these people are saying, ‘How am I going to pay rent? How am I going to do this?’ We don’t have an answer for that. I hate watching my employees cry,” Hausfeld said.
