Dover Straits seafood restaurant has shut its doors after 24 years in Hoffman Estates. The restaurant, located at 1149 W. Golf Road, closed Sunday, June 23, according to owner Arthur Metropulos. He said he decided to close the restaurant after Muller's Woodfield Acura car dealership -- located on the corner of Higgins Road and Gannon Drive, less than a half mile north of Dover Straits -- expressed interest in the property. "We decided to sell to them," Metropulos said, adding that he had "mixed feelings" about leaving Hoffman Estates. "We could not say no to the offer." Metropulos said a second Dover Straits location in Mundelein is doing well and will remain open.
