Fox Ridge Restaurant in Newton to close

WICHITA — In late 2011, Fox Ridge Restaurant owner Greg Davis described how supportive customers convinced him to keep his Newton restaurant open.

“It’s kind of a leap of faith,” he told Have You Heard?

The leap didn’t pay off.

The restaurant’s last day in business is Sunday.

“It’s very difficult for us,” Davis says. “We feel like we’ve done the right things, but we’re just in the wrong place.”

The restaurant is at the Fox Ridge Golf Club.

“We’re not on Main Street, and so people don’t think of us,” Davis says. “They forget we’re here.”

The restaurant was open for three years.

The building is now for lease.

“We have good service, good food, good view,” Davis says. “Don’t have enough customers. Pretty simple.”
