Molokai's oldest diner to close

MOLOKAI (HawaiiNewsNow) - Molokai Drive Inn, the island's oldest eatery, will soon be closing down. The announcement on the restaurant's Facebook page says next Wednesday, June 17, will be their last day open for business.

The Drive Inn first opened in 1964, but in recent years, it has been involved in a bitter rent dispute with the landlord. The restaurant even sued to have its rent lowered, but the case got dismissed.

The owners say they plan to eventually reopen at a new location.

There are currently only about a dozen eateries on Molokai.
