Golden Dolphin diner in Huntington village has been seized by the state over unpaid taxes, according to notices posted Wednesday afternoon.

The postings, put up by the state Department of Taxation and Finance, claim the diner has been “seized for nonpayment of taxes and is now in the possession of the state of New York.”

Customers seen leaving the 365 W. Main St. diner around 1 p.m. said they had just ate a meal there. An apparent employee then closed the diner’s doors and said it would be closed for the rest of the day.

Longtime owner Teddy Kalligeros could not be immediately reached for comment.

The Golden Dolphin closed for renovations in April 2015, and reopened later that year.
