The Ann Arbor location is one of three Joe's Crab Shack restaurants in Michigan that closed without warning on Monday August 14th. 

Last week, the announcement of a tentative sale of both Joe's and Brick House Tavern + Tap, offered no indication of the closings.  The current owner, Ignite Restaurant Group, said that as part of the sale, it would file for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy.

There is no indication that the Michigan restaurants will reopen.  Livingston Daily reports the Joe's Crab Shack website lists 40 fewer restaurants today than it did last week.
