Dear Mason Community

After 43 years, it is with heavy hearts that we, Rob and LeAnne Hearit, are announcing the closing of Darb’s Tavern & Eatery in Mason, Michigan on January 1, 2023 and will not reopen for business.  We have poured our hearts and souls into Darb’s and have come to the evident conclusion that we are both ready to retire and spend more time with our growing family. 

Darb’s Tavern & Eatery was established in 1980 by Harold and Mary Darbor. Rob has been involved in the business for 43 years and LeAnne for 35 years.  It grew into a place that has welcomed hundreds of thousands of guests and employed hundreds of people over the past 43 years.

We genuinely love and truly appreciate all of our customers, former staff and present employees. Knowing that Darb’s will no longer be open for our loyal customers and family to patronize in makes this decision a somber one. Each and every employee and customer that we have gotten to know has helped shape us and our restaurant. This was certainly not an easy decision and those who know us know that this decision is based on what’s best for our family. We truly hope that you can try to understand our decision because we certainly understand how much Darb’s means to the Mason community.

Moving forward, on Dec 30th, we will have an Employee Appreciation Day where all proceeds will be donated to our current employees. We will also be holding a Customer Appreciation Day on Dec 31st with a complimentary buffet to show our appreciation to our devoted customers. Please join us in celebrating Darb’s legacy.

With Love and Immense Gratitude, Rob And LeAnne Hearit
