Belrock Country Diner Shuts Down

For nearly a quarter century, it was a fixture on Belpre's Washington Boulevard.

But the Belrock Country Diner has served its last slice of pie.

The Belrock closed its doors earlier this month.

Long-time owner Steve Null says the restaurant needed extensive renovations and it was time to retire.

He adds business was down the first quarter of this year.

"The real bad weather we had the first of the year got us behind, and either this year or next year, it was going to happen anyway," Null said.

More than anything else, the Belrock will be remembered for its support of community organizations, and partnerships in the Belpre school system.

Null says it had visitors from all 50 U.S. states, and even a few foreign countries.
