Shock, bewilderment, frustration, cries for a historic designation -- those are some of the feelings and suggestions that people have uttered since news broke about Doyle's closing on Monday.

Quickly, a Save Doyle's Cafe Facebook page was created, and as of Tuesday night, more than 500 people have liked the page.

Some folks took to reaching out to the CEO of Davio's, which has an agreement to buy Doyle's liquor license for $455,000. As of Tuesday night, Davio's CEO Steve DiFillippo, had not tweeted any response, after previously stating he didn't know the liquor license was coming from Doyle's.

Many folks shared fond memories of Doyle's.

Many people were frustrated with the Burke family, who have owned Doyle's since 1970. One family member owns the liquor license and the restaurant, and another owns the property.

And people were just frustrated about the situation.

Of course there were immediate worries about what JP business will fall next...

And Doyle's longtime neighbor, The Midway Cafe, wanted folks to know that they aren't going anywhere.
