The Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, Virginia, finally reopened its doors on Thursday — but it was not without controversy.

Waiting outside ahead of the grand reopening were protesters, clearly still upset at the treatment of White House press secretary Sarah Sanders.

The protesters reportedly held signs that read, "Hey Red Hen Go Cluck Yourself" and "No Civility, No Peas.”

A spokesman for one protest group, the Patriot Picket, told WDBJ, "We're here today because actions have consequences."

The protests have been going on for several days.

The owner of the restaurant infamously kicked out Sanders and her family because she works for President Donald Trump.

“The establishment closed its doors several days later, but Thursday night Red Hen reopened for business and only accepted customers with reservations,” CNN reported. “A sign on the restaurant's door said it was fully booked for the evening.”

After her family was kicked out of the restaurant, Sanders responded during a daily press briefing — and she took the high road.

"Healthy debate on ideas and political philosophy is important, but the calls for harassment and push for any Trump supporter to avoid the public is unacceptable. America is a great country, and our ability to find solutions despite those disagreements is what makes us unique,” she said.
