The popular German pub has closed its doors for the second time in less than a year.

JACKSON TWP. The Geisen Haus has closed its doors for the second time in less than a year.

The German pub, which first opened in 1968, appears to have been closed since last month. Lights were on inside the restaurant Wednesday, but a faded sign on the door read "Sorry. We are closed."

Calls to the restaurant would not go through. And attempts to reach the owners were not immediately successful.  

In October, Geisen Haus posted and then removed a closing announcement on its Facebook page. It later launched an online fundraising campaign seeking $30,000.

At the time, Gloria Cavalier, whose family owns the restaurant, told The Canton Repository that business had been slow and the Geisen Haus needed a "miracle" to stay open.

According to public records, the restaurant and its owners had appeared to face tax troubles, including more than $1 million in federal tax liens. Cavalier disputed those claims.

Geisen Haus closed for two weeks last fall but reopened in November after receiving what owners said was an infusion of capital and investors.

This time, the restaurant did not post an announcement on social media.

As late as June 10, the page advertised drink specials. The Facebook page has replied to customer's questions, confirming that business closed June 10.

Several customers have posted asking for information on how to pick up their steins. One asked if there would a date or time stein owners could stop by.

"There will be but please understand we have a lot to deal with right now and getting steins to their owners is a priority of ours," Geisen Haus replied June 16.
