Disable site/store

How can I disable the site so that only administrators can view it? I tried going to System > Manage Stores > (Store View Name) > Status: Disabled, but that apparently did nothing.

Right now, I have Magento installed on my local machine, but once I set it up on a server, I’d like to be able to restrict access until I’m sure everything looks and works the way I want it to.

There is no way to disable the store side at this time. You should probably use a temporary place holder page as your index page that hides the store functionality until you are ready to go live.
