Slows Bar BQ in Pontiac, located inside the Flagstar Strand Theatre, will pause daily operations effective on Dec. 3, the company said in a Facebook post.
The restaurant will continue to be open for all performances at the theatre.
"After eight months of learning about the local market needs, we have decide to take a moment to restructure our business initiatives and relaunch with a stronger and more dynamic restaurant," the post said.
The location will re-open in late winter or early spring 2018.
A number of staff members will be retained in other locations in order to be ready for the relaunch.
The restaurant will be open starting 4 p.m. on Dec. 16 for the George Winston performance.
