Bellwood Bar and Grill

Bellwood Bar & Grill joins the deadpool after 30+ years

The staff at West Queen West burger joint Bellwood Bar and Grill have flipped their last patty. The joint, famous for its 16 oz. hamburgers and late-night eats, closed for good earlier this week when the building's owners - who are also the operators of the restaurant - decided to sell up.

A January real estate listing has the building and the two upstairs apartments valued at $1.5 million, the hefty price tag no doubt reflecting its prime location steps from Trinity Bellwoods Park. The sale is listed on the condition that the new owners take over the business too.

Bellwood (sometimes Bellwood's, though the sign says Bellwood) opened in 1978 and was operated by father-son team Tom and Paul Kiriakoulis. Have you eaten at Bellwood Bar & Grill? Will you miss their omelette sandwich?
