Popular Penticton restaurant closing

After 13-plus years, the Black Iron Grill will be closing at the end of the year

After 13-plus years running a popular restaurant in Penticton, owner Ken Lauzon has decided to close the Black Iron Grill.

With their lease finished at the Days Inn by the end of the year, Lauzon said they will not renew.

“Tough decision to make but one that has come with careful thought,” said Lauzon in a social media post. “I believe that change is good and there are many things that we have to look forward to in the years to come.”

Patrons of the restaurant have flooded their social media posts with well-wishes and comments about the good times they have enjoyed there.

“It will always remain with us. It was the first greeting to Penticton our first night here and that memory will always be a great one. We have made some wonderful friends through you and your family and we look forward to more nights of drinking wine and celebrating more of your successes,” wrote Peter Beauchamp.

“Without a doubt our journey at the Black Iron has brought both pleasure and frustrations at times but the consistent thing that has occurred is the hard work and commitment of my team. Not an easy work world we live in and they worked their asses off so my heartfelt thanks to them,” said Lauzon.
