The website of a restaurant in Ohio was hacked this weekend by a group that claims to support ISIS. According to the Cincinnati Enquirer, Canal House Bar and Grille's website was first affected on Sunday. Hackers changed the landing page of the website to a black, white, and red message that reads: "We will restore the dignity of Muslims. Glory will return to Islam. The dispute will return to outdated. Be prepared."

The hacked website also features a banner that reads "Hacked by Team System Dz" and it plays what appears to be an Arabic song. Eater has reached out to the restaurant, which was closed yesterday and is closed today, for comment. The website remains hacked.

A number of prominent restaurants and chefs have had their websites hacked in recent years. Last July, a group known as the Syrian Electronic Army hacked the websites for chef Thomas Keller's famed Yountville, Calif. restaurant The French Laundry and for his restaurant group, Thomas Keller Restaurant Group. The restaurant group's hacked website featured text like "dont you ever speak badly of syrian people [sic]" and "eat falafel and live as aking, falafel w bas [sic]." In February, hackers installed code on world-saving chef Jamie Oliver's Naked Chef website that forced malware to run on visitors' computers.
