The Country Grill in Dry Ridge will reopen Aug. 11 after an electrical fire forced the restaurant to close for more than two months.
“We’re excited,” said owner Mike Hare. “Everyone’s excited about getting reopened. Everywhere we go, people are asking when we are reopening. We’re ready to go.”
The fire broke out on June 6.
Hare said the employees smelled smoke and then noticed a haze in the dining room just after lunch.
The source of the smoke eventually was found in the attic above the kitchen.
