Restaurant featured on reality TV show closing after 17 years

The Old World Italian Restaurant located off U.S. 17 Bypass in Murrells Inlet will be closing its doors come September 7.

The restaurant appeared on a Food Network show called Restaurant Impossible, which is a show that helps make-over restaurants.

Co-owner George Hayek Sr. said they are closing the restaurant because they want to retire, and enjoy time with their grandkids.
