This is sad, but not at all surprising.. This operation is/was tired, overpriced, underwhelming, and a bit haughty..
Kind of like, ME! GASP! But I digress..
That aside, this isn’t a good sign, operations like many of the these nostalgic attractions, are dying off with it’s older consumer base.. If you haven’t got someone to tell you about the wonderful old stories, they no longer have a reliable base..
There are plenty of legitimate landmarks that maintain a renewable energy, with constant fine-tuning of their product, and keen competitiveness..
HOWEVER, there are market forces that no one can overcome, when no matter what you know about business,.. It’s all about THE ECONOMY STUPID!!
The prices are really no different than any other NY steakhouse or restaurant for that matter. We often go to Del Frisco’s and they are just as pricey but maybe a little more hip.
My husband took me to Gallagher’s, in the 60’s, when we first started dating.
