But sadly, Lansing did permanently lose some restaurants in the last year. Whether it was because the owners wanted to move on, they had staffing shortages, or otherwise, we had to say goodbye to many restaurants.

Lansing Restaurants That Closed In 2022

Patrons and Lansing area residents alike were very sad to see these places close, especially because so many of them have been staples in the community for quite some time. Hopefully, we will see some other local restauranteurs step in and fill the gaps of what we've lost.

Here's a look on the bright side...a few of the restaurants that we lost this year have been able to reopen!

Here's a look back at the restaurants that we had to say goodbye to in 2022, and a few we got to say hello to once again!

Green Dot Stables opened up in the old Whiskey Barrel Saloon location, serving up a rotating menu of sliders. Unfortunately, they got hit hard by a severe flood in the area and it was hit pretty hard by the pandemic. Green Dot Stables closed in July 2022.
