They have been the self-proclaimed “King of the Wings” for more than 30 years.

We shared the news this past Monday, September 12, 2022 that the Pic-A-Lilli Pub of Atlantic City, New Jersey would be closing its doors in Atlantic City in the very near future.

The ownership has made it official and we can now share their first public announcement about this decision:

It's been just a year since the Pic-A-Lilli Family said goodbye to the King of Wings, Donnie Russell. Today, it is with a heavy that we announce the sale of The Pic-A-Lilli Pub in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Owned and operated by Donnie for over 30 years. The Pub has been a staple on Tennessee Avenue, offering a taste of the nearly famous wing sauce that he himself created at the Original Pic-A-Lilli Inn to guests visiting the shore from far and wide.

We are very proud to have been a part of the growing food scene in AC. Thank you to our loyal guests who have stopped in for 3 decades!

There have been a lot of long-time food and beverage establishments closing lately. In this case, this is a sale and a new operator will be reimaging the restaurant and re-opening it under a new name and theme.

We have been advised that the current working name for the new restaurant will be "King's Place." We were also told that this name is subject to change.
