A Trump-loving restaurateur in the shadow of the former president's Mar-a-Lago resort says he regrets posting an anti-Biden sign after his business declined, his phone lines blew up with complaints, and his Yelp page was shut down after being flooded with negative comments.

Eddie Lubic, who owns Eddie's Ristorante in Jupiter, Florida, posted a sign a few weeks ago outside the Italian eatery saying "only serving Patriots of the USA," the Palm Beach Post reports.

"If you are still a Biden supporter, this restaurant is not for you," the sign read.

Although Lubic now admits he "may have made a mistake," he doesn't appear to have learned anything, according to Palm Beach Post columnist Frank Cerabino.

Lubic recently replaced the sign with a new one saying, "We are only serving Patriots of the USA vaccinated and unvaccinated. Question … In light of the Afghanistan debacle and the border crisis, do you still support Sleepy Joe and the corrupt White House administration?"

Lubic told the newspaper that after he posted the first sign, "I gained some (customers), but I probably lost more people than I gained. The message was too heavy for the guys on the Left."

He also said it was "very tough on his staff."

"My hostess is 19 years old. People call her 100 times a day, and they curse at her," Lubic said. "They're relentless."
