The young burgundy-and-gold eatery lasted through just one season

Washington Redskins fans just got dealt some bad postseason news: the NFL-themed restaurant Hail & Hog will shut down, just 18 months after opening in Ashburn.

The two-story space was a tale of two restaurants, featuring upscale dining on one floor and a sports bar with a patio on the other. The closure, reported by Sports Foodie on Wednesday, doesn’t come as a huge surprise; the restaurant filed for bankruptcy in January.

The 12,000-square-foot tribute spot was plagued with issues from the start, including struggling sales figures and a bad review from the Washington Post.

It’s been a bad summer for G.R.E.A.T. Grille Group, also known as g3 Restaurants, which also had to shut down sister spot Indianapolis Colts Grille last month.

Hail & Hog’s website and social media pages are already offline, and management posted a sign announcing the news on its door.
