I don't think they closed the account. I think they said they may close them or even they may close them if there is another chargeback. Not sure.
Also, we don't know anything about the account history...these could be the only charges that were ever on the account. We also don't know if the OP disputed the "appropriate" portion of the charge or the entire charge.
Either way, the OP agreed to pay for those charges when they paid for them. While I would be agitated with the situations described, paying and moving on to file a dispute for $25 against a restaurant is a waste of time and a non starter in my opinion...
