Applebee’s Neighborhood Bar + Grill at 1705 Browns Bridge Road has closed.

“We’re moving,” a sign on the front door says. “Your Gainesville location is now closed.”

The sign also urges visitors to go to the restaurant at 31 Bethel Drive in Dawsonville and shows a map of the location.

The phone at the restaurant is busy and corporate officials couldn’t be reached for immediate comment.

Applebee’s closing is second in recent weeks among restaurants on Browns Bridge.

Denny’s, which is next door, closed about three weeks ago.

The restaurants are across from Gainesville Towne Center shopping center, which has several restaurants, including Golden Corral and Panda Express, now under construction.

Also nearby are longstanding Pizza Hut and Taco Bell.

Unlike Denny’s, Applebee’s had been at its location for many years and was part of a “restaurant row” that sprang up in the area. Other neighboring restaurants include Red Lobster, LongHorn and O’Charleys.
