This storefront, co-located with a convenience store, was orginally Kotas Sandwiches. After that closed, the place re-opened for a while as Kotas Your Way!.
It appears from the signage, and the food truck parked in the lot that the new owners have closed the storefront and now concentrate on catering chiken & pizza from two food trucks.
Mari's Lake House was the followup operation to Bentley's Beach House in this North Lake Drive building in Lexington.
As far as I can tell, the setup was very similar, with even the same AMF Sunfish still sitting in the parking lot. I'm pretty sure the free beer offer was new though..

As mentioned by a number of commenters over the last several months (and in this State article), the Hardee's location at 415 Columbia Avenue in Lexington in front of the Bi-Lo has moved to 1105 West Main Street and the former building has been razed.
The razed spot will be rebuilt as a Captain D's. The new Hardee's site is the former location of Clamp's BP Station.
UPDATE 11 December 2015 -- The construction of the Captain D's on this spot has started:
As shown in the first picture, the main suite for Bike Street USA was what is now Jackie's Uniforms, but the Bicycles signage remains on the second suite they had to the right of that. As you can also see from the firt shot, the store started as Bike To Nature, which moved here from across the street when its original building was slated for demolition.
After moving, the store was bought by the Bike Street USA chain, which went bankrupt in November 2014 as described here.
I had come from Pizzera Uno to the Pastime Pavilion in Lexington to see a movie. In point of fact, I was hoping to still find the latest Mad Max move showing though it was dropping out of first run at the time. I had done a quick google before leaving home, noting that the time and place for Max would make it convienient to a restaurant I hadn't been to for a while.
It all went well until I got to the theater and found that I should have taken time to click on the movie descriptions as well as times as the movie turned out to be about a dog.
Anyway, as I was walking back to the car in sort of disgusted amusement, I noticed the plaza's Marble Slab Creamery was closed. There were no explanatory notes or signs, but cleary the place had been cleaned out even though the marquee was still up.
A Three Hour Cruise..
I'm not too familiar with Gilligan's, but I know there was at least one other in Litchfield Beach which closed last year and is now an ABC store. This one was in Lexingtion on North Lake Drive just east of the Books-A-Million strip mall.
I think that clearly this building and the old Zorba's On Two Notch shared the same design. Whether that means this was originally a Zorba's or that they were both originally something else I'm not sure.

UPDATE 24 February 2015: Updated the closing date in the post title based on the comments.
Bentley's Beach House was the follow-on operation in the old Dam Bar & Grill spot.
It looks like the next tenant is already lined up with a sign announcing Mari's Lake House, thus continuing the "water" and "house" theme the location has going on..

I think we're all Bozos on this bus.
As reported by commenter John R, this former Carolina Wings & Rib House is now, once again, ... a Carolina Wings & Rib House.
The rebranding as Daddy Mac's lasted somewhat less than a year.

Here's a nice little brick building in Lexington at the point where US-378 transitions from North Lake Drive to Columbia Avenue. That transition and interchange makes this site a bit iffy to get in and out of, but at least on a Sunday it wasn't too bad.
I like the blue shutters, which give it a nice Greek touch.
UPDATE 23 October 2014 -- Added interior shot.
