Craig eatery Double Barrel Steakhouse to close
One of Craig’s favorite restaurants will close its doors Dec. 20.
Double Barrel Steakhouse owners Ann Marie and Pat Roberts have enjoyed their time as restaurant owners, but they’ve decided to say goodbye to the dining business so they can spend more time with their 5-year-old son.
