Burien’s Keg Restaurant All Tapped Out; Closes
The Keg Restaurant, located at 180 SW 148th Street in Burien (in the Safeway shopping mall) has closed.
We sent an email inquiry to them and got this response from Jim Croteau, COO:
“The Keg has been part of the greater Seattle community for more than 25 years, and the decision to close this location was a difficult one.
The Burien Keg had operated in its trade area for a vast number of years. Over time, the changes and shifts in the market had a direct impact on the profitability of the restaurant. This, coupled with the current overall economic environment, resulted in our decision to close.”
