Pimiento cheese sticks served with house-made ranch dressing were a favorite appetizer at Addie’s and The Woodford Inn, which announced Wednesday it has closed.

A popular Versailles restaurant closed over the holidays. Addie’s and The Woodford Inn announced that the restaurant closed as of Dec. 26.

In a post on the restaurant’s Facebook page, the owners thanked “the many guests we have been able to serve over the years and wish we were able to stay. We love Versailles and the wonderful community that we’ve been a part of for so long.”

On the post, Addie’s fans mourned the loss of its pimiento cheese sticks and other favorites. Some who had purchased gift certificates asked if they could still be redeemed. They were told that Stein’s by Addie’s, which opened last month on Southland Drive in Lexington, would honor them. Stein’s by Addies is also owned by Linda and Bruce Parker.

Named for Linda Parker’s mother, Adelyn, Addie’s opened in 2011 at the historic Cleveland Home in Versailles and offered comfort food and more in the restaurant and through catering, which apparently still is available.

“We have been fortunate to have served Woodford County and the city of Versailles for over seven years,” Linda Parker said in a statement. “Addie’s has been very successful here inside the Woodford Inn, but sometimes circumstances are out of one’s control and it forces decisions to be made that one may not be in favor of. So, yes I am saddened by our departure but am thankful for every day. We will miss it very much.”

Parker declined to elaborate on the decision to close; she credited the restaurant staff with contributing to their success.

Chef Celia Lowe talks about her process in making the signature fried pimento cheese sticks appetizer of Addie’s restaurant at Woodford Inn in Versailles.
