Opening of Doc's Cantina delayed due to exterior wall issues

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The opening of a new restaurant along Waterfront Park will be delayed.

Doc's Cantina was expected to open in December in the former Tumbleweed location along River Road.

However, crews recently found issues with the exterior wall.

The Falls City Hospitality Group, which is known for Doc Crow's, is behind the project.

Managing Partner, Brett Davis, tells WDRB that the plywood along the exterior is rotting, and will have to be fixed.

The restaurant is now expected to open by late January.

It will have a south of the border concept that is being called "Mex-Mex".

"We are doing what we consider you'll find in Mexico today, and our version of that," Davis said in October.

A wall and stairway on the bottom floor, used by staff members, has been knocked down and moved to allow more seating along the river, and a better view for customers.

The project has already cost nearly $3 million.

This is one of two restaurants along River Road currently in the works for the restaurant group.
