IOWA CITY, Iowa (KCRG) - UPDATE: A lawyer representing the owner of Hamburg Inn has said that the restaurant does not plan on closing.

The Hamburg Inn #2 opened way back in 1935. It is a popular politican hang out for caucus candidates with visits from past presidents including Barrack Obama, Bill Clinton, Ronald Reagan, and countless others.

Employees told TV9 that managers alerted them earlier this week. They stated that there were issues with maintenance in the building and a manager said it was unclear if the restaurant would be closed for good or just temporarily.

TV9 was told the restaurant owner is out of the country and unavailable for comment.
