PITTSBURGH (KDKA) -- Sweeney's Steakhouse in Rostraver Township has closed its doors and they won't be reopening.

The restaurant announced on Wednesday night that the business has closed, effective immediately.

In a post on social media, owner Debra Hardy thanked loyal customers for their support and says she will cherish the memories made at Sweeney's.
