Uncle Bubba's Seafood and Oyster House, co-owned by celebrity chef Paula Deen and her brother Bubba Hiers, has shut its doors, a spokesman for the family confirmed.
The decision to close the Savannah, Ga. restaurant was reportedly Bubba's who is interested in exploring development options for the waterfront property.
The Oyster House was at the center of a racial discrimination lawsuit brought against the siblings by a former employee who claimed she experienced sexual harassment and racial discrimination while working at the food joint. A judge ultimately dismissed the case.
The suit, in which Paula admitted to using the N-word, lost the "Butter Queen" her Food Network show as well as millions of dollars in endorsements.
The business posted a quick announcement on its Facebook page about the closure, simply stating, "Thank you for 10 great years. Uncle Bubba's is now closed."
Reports suggest employees of the seafood restaurant were not told ahead of time the restaurant was going out of business.

Despite the shuttering of the restaurant, Paula has made it clear she's ready for her comeback, telling fans at the South Beach Wine & Food Festival in Feb., "I'm glad to be back! I'm not a quitter!"
Her sons, Bobby and Jamie Deen, agree. "She is going to be highly visible. You can't put that light in a box. It's gonna come out," her youngest son, Bobby, told Closer last month.
