The operators of the JDI Grille & Tavern in Lexington announced Sunday that they are closing their doors, effective immediately.

In a Facebook post, the owners of the restaurant at the corner of Cedar Street and South Broadway say anyone with a reservation at the restaurant should contact them to get a refund of any deposit paid.

According to our news partners at the Lexington Herald-Leader, the owner, Jason Morgan, his twin brother Jeff Morgan, a minority partner and their mother, Karen Morgan, who is also a co-owner, have been in litigation over the restaurant for at least two years.

The paper also reports the restaurant opened in February 2013 as a tribute to the original Jefferson Davis Inn on High Street.

The full announcement is posted below:

It is with profound sadness that my family and I announce the closing of the JDI Grille & Tavern effective immediately....
