Southern country group Lynyrd Skynyrd’s former barbecue restaurant at the Excalibur converts into an American bar this fall.

The restaurant closed after less than a year in business in 2012, and filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Lynyrd Skynyrd BBQ & Beer paid a tribute to the 150-year-old “Hell House,” an old cabin with a tin roof located in the woods on a farm in Green Cove Springs, Florida, where the band wrote and rehearsed songs for their first and second albums.

The restaurant, a collaboration between the band and Drive This! Entertainment, served barbecued beef, pork, and chicken. Kreuz Market, a 111-year-old Lockhart, Texas, barbecue joint, helped create the menu. Since closing, the space has lived behind a construction wall.

The castle-shaped resort’s last food and beverage renovation came in July 2017 when it opened the 24-hour Lounge at Excalibur with a full roster of live music and karaoke on the main stage, bar games, banquette seating, two media walls brimming with eight flat-screen TVs, and a new cocktail menu.
