Uncle Buck's Grill inside Bass Pro Shops is now closed.

Bass Pro Shops recently closed the restaurant to “alter the space” and "better serve customers with expanded products and services,” according to a statement released by Michael Zerman, senior communications manager for the company.

“We’re speaking with all restaurant team members about opportunities to transfer to other roles and assisting those impacted with severance packages and a continuation of benefits,” he said.

Uncle Buck's opened almost 9 years ago, in place of Islamorada Fish Co., a restaurant that had "a little pricey" menu, according to a Bass Pro Shops spokesperson at the time. 

In February, The Des Moines Register reported that Bass Pro Shops in Altoona is building a new "undersea-themed arcade at Uncle Buck's Fish Bowl & Grill" that will sit "in the former dining area and will feature nearly 50 gaming machines."

Zerman could not be reached to comment on the future of Uncle Buck's space in the Council Bluffs Bass Pro Shops.
