The business announced the closing in a letter posted that begins "Dear Friends and Family."
"It is with a heavy heart that we announce Grandma's Pies & Restaurant will be closing its doors on Sunday, July 15th," the letter reads. "We wish to thank you all for being part of our family, as well as allowing us to be a part of your families for these last 42 years."
No reason for the closing is given in the note.
The post had been shared more than 2,000 times and saw nearly 500 comments by early Sunday afternoon.
Grandma's was opened by Joe Danaher and operated by him with advice from his grandma. Longtime night and day managers, Dave Houle and Ron Raylinsky, then purchased it in 2008 with help from Joe Fagan of Ralph’s Tavern, and took over the restaurant.
The Gazette's "At the Table" column visited Grandma's in 2009 for an article.
"Grandma’s offers good value for the money and you’ll pass a pleasant evening there enjoying simple, satisfying home-cooked food," our reviewer wrote then.
