HORRY COUNTY, S.C. (WBTW) — An alleged payroll issue led to Walk-Ons Sports Bistreaux along Highway 501 to close “until further notice,” according to a message sent to employees and viewed by News13.

The sign on the door says the closure is “due to unforeseen circumstances.”

News13 called the location Friday and a person who answered the phone confirmed the restaurant is currently closed, but said they were unable to provide details about why.

News13 learned that there was a delay in payroll for employees, including managers. The message sent to employees apologized for the delay, stated all managers submitted payroll on time, but didn’t provide specifics on the reason for the delay.

Another message to employees indicated paychecks could arrive as soon as Saturday. A person familiar with the situation told News13 employees did receive paper checks on Saturday.

When reached for comment by News13, Walk-Ons management said it had no comment at this time.

“We apologize for any inconvenience and we look forward to you dining with us again soon,” the sign on the door reads.

Walk-ons also has a second location in the area along Highway 544 near Highway 17 Bypass, which remained open.
