Calls to a location in Duluth, Georgia, went unanswered Thursday afternoon, and restaurant review site Yelp deemed it closed based on user feedback. The Gwinnett site is also not listed on the company’s website.

The Duluth location was included in a list of the 41 locations that closed without advance warning to employees, originally reported by Consumerist. The list included restaurants in nearly 20 states, including Florida, Oklahoma and Texas.

Joe’s Crab Shack’s parent company, Ignite Restaurant Group, did not return a request for comment. Ignite filed for bankruptcy in June. Landry’s, Inc. won an auction this month to acquire Joe’s Crab Shack and Brick House Tavern and Tap brands from Ignite for $57 million.
