The Country Grill will soon reopen its doors after major renovations and the addition of alcohol sales.
The restaurant closed Oct. 20, 2008, and shortly after was deeded back to its original owner, John DiGirolamo.
He opened The Country Grill with his wife, Barbara, Nov. 22, 1988, before selling it in 1999.
DiGirolamo originally planned to sell the restaurant after recently retaining ownership.
“We had some bites, but a lot of people wanted to lease it,” he said. “I didn’t really want to lease it.”
