Greene Turtle’s Fells Point location to close, owner says

The Fells Point Greene Turtle is scheduled to close June 30, the owner announced this week.

The restaurant has operated in the Baltimore neighborhood for 34 years. Its closure adds to a list of Baltimore eateries that have shuttered since the outbreak of COVID-19 in Maryland.

Owner Bill Packo’s Facebook post announcing the closure did not state whether the coronavirus had contributed to the decision. Packo could not immediately be reached for comment Thursday.

“We wanted to thank everyone for all the memories, the ones we remember and the ones we don’t,” Packo said in the post.

“We owe so many thank you’s to so many people over all of these years,” he said.

The account encouraged patrons to share memories and pictures in the comments section of the Facebook post.

Packo’s wife, Jill Packo, also owned Towson’s Greene Turtle, which shuttered its doors in April after 16 years and reopened as The Backyard Uptown. The couple is looking to open another location in Baltimore, she said last month.
