Owner of J2 Steakhouse, formerly site of Lewisville Feed Mill, pushes completion date to May

The former Lewisville Feed Mill is being transformed into a steakhouse.

The former Lewisville Feed Mill is being transformed into a steakhouse.

In May 2016 the city of Lewisville entered into an economic development agreement with a developer to turn the Lewisville Feed Mill into J2 Steakhouse. The agreement stated the restaurant, which will be located at 119 E. Main St., must be substantially complete and a certificate of occupancy issued by Dec. 30.

At the Dec. 4 Lewisville City Council meeting, council approved an extension of the agreement that pushed the completion date back to March 30.

At Monday's Lewisville City Council meeting, members approved a request by the owner for another extension of the date of substantial completion to May 30.

When it opens, the restaurant will feature live music, a patio and a bar with 36 beers on tap. For more information, visit www.facebook.com/J2Steakhouse.

The Lewisville Feed Mill closed in 2010 after 124 years in business.
