It’s tough to understand why the community wasn’t supportive of the restaurant.

Obviously they did not think they could make enough over the holidays. Too bad the employees do not have another restaurant too fall back on. What was a hometown girl expecting to come back and charge prices double any other place in town.

I hear people from Wellington complain all the time about how there is nothing to do in Wellington. You get what you pay for Wellington… if you’re not willing to spend you money in Wellington then you will have nothing in Wellington. It’s as simple as that.

Sorry to see it close though, Wellington needs a really good home style restaurant.

Thank you Tudy and Nate for all you have done for this community. Why havent our community leaders commented on this closing Cue? Are they to busy looking for a hotel to build?

Wellington does not need an up scale over priced placed to eat. Sorry when we want that it usually involves getting out of town. Explan how Andy’s manages to continue to thrive…good food at a decent price and GREAT service..hope it reopens soon Wellington can use this place maybe like a Golden Corral style buffet. Any how it was poorly ran..I remember last year on a Saturday when the high school was packed with wrestlers from across the state the Rock was closed..missed chances.

She will continue to operate “Neives” Mexican Restaurant on E. Ninth in Winfield.Â The Wellington Steakhouse and Steakhouse Motel business closed abruptly in the summer of 2010 after approximately 15 years of business on the location of Western Sizzlin which burned in 1993.Hasu Bhakta of Wichita bought the facility and Wellington civic leaders scrambled to find some tenants.McCreary, who once owned a restaurant called “Cornejo’s” in downtown Wellington, told Newscow.net in the summer of 2011 that community leaders in Wellington approached her about opening the restaurant at the motel- which has long been home of a popular banquet hall, steakhouse and a bar once called the Roundup Room.She along with her nephew, former Detroit Tigers pitcher Nate Cornejo, opened the facility in September of 2011 after renovating the building.The new restaurant featured upscale American food. McCreary said she didn’t want to go with Mexican food as it would be competition to her other restaurant in Winfield.Despite her success with the two previous restaurants, this restaurant struggled to catch hold she said. In November, she launched a new menu for Fridays and Saturdays with “The Chefs of Sysco”However on Dec. 22 she officially announced the closing of both businesses.“We’ll sell off the equipment,” McCreary said.
