A popular La Crosse restaurant is scheduled to close at year’s end, after 68 years in business.
Schmidty’s Bar and Restaurant on State Road announced on social media that it will close on New Year’s Day. The announcement was confirmed by restaurant staff.
In the announcement, owner Bob Schmidt said the restaurant is for sale.
Schmidt added that he hopes to find a buyer who would retain some of the current Schmidty’s employees, and continue practices that have made the business successful.
