SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - A restaurant at the Santa Barbara airport is closing its doors temporarily.
The High Sierra Grill, also known as "Flightline", has struggled financially amid lengthy battles over funding and it's ownership.
The restaurant will be shutting down until further notice. Warren butler has been running the high sierra grill under the rebranded name "Flightline" for months.
Butler is trying to take over the lease on the property, but the city of Santa Barbara has blocked the lease transfer because of concerns over investment and Butler's plans for the restaurant.
