After four years of business, Maui Chophouse is closing shop and “mahalo” (thank you) to the Rocky Point community.

Known for its Hawaiian flavors and Pacific vibes, the restaurant is shutting down its brick-and-mortar location at 49 NY-25A in Rocky Point on Thursday, Sept. 1.

However, owner John Louis said this is not goodbye, but a “see you later,” as the business will continue to operate through its food truck.

“The brand will live on through our food truck and luau parties,” Louis said in a Facebook announcement. “We want to thank those of you who supported us throughout the last almost four years … from the deepest depths of our hearts.”

Louis said he couldn’t refuse an offer made on their physical space and although the decision was bittersweet, it was “necessary.”

To keep up with Maui Chophouse’s next chapter, follow their food truck page for updates on their location.

“You are all, and will always be, Ohana to my staff and I,” Louis messaged his loyal customers.
