Just O.K.

The worst part of the experience is the drive up the hill to the restaurant. Like others mentioned, the gravel drive is horrible and a SUV is a plus. We went for a late lunch. The food was good but service extremely slow. The inside of the restaurant doesn't seat many people and the décor is old... read more

This restaurant is hidden in a back road. We went for dinner after traveling around. The food and service were excellent.

After you visit Ash a Cave in the Hocking Hills park system follow the signs to another world. They don't care if you have trekking clothes on in this lovely restaurant. The Roasted Red Pepper Smoked Gouda soup was awesome and the Reuben and chicken salad club yummy after hiking. Service is slow paced but it's ok to relax and... More

There weren't that many people in the restaurant, but service was incredibly slow. However the food was great when it arrived finally.

Cute restaurant adjacent to some love bug cabins.  We chose to sit outside since the view of the green woods was gorgeous (and my wife cannot tolerate how cold it was with the AC turned up high).  We ordered venison burger, buffalo chicken sandwich, and corn dog.  Everything came with kettle chips.  The burger was juicy, and the sandwich had...

We have been there twice. Both times, we were the only people there! Getting up the hill is a bit insane, but it is really beautiful up there. The food was very good, both times. Today, we had frog legs and swordfish. Both were great. The ONLY complaint I have is if you sit outside you can hear a high... More

My impression of this restaurant is fine dining at the absolute lowest cost to the operators. They are deceiving on their website showing over enthused plating and what I can only imagine is very calculated angles to hide the atrocity of "decorating" and the worn out dining room. When we arrived our hostess, and by that I mean ourselves, seated... More

Got there and seated ourselves. One other party Saturday afternoon. No waitress in sight. No salt and pepper on table. When food came waitress gone. Walked back to serving station got it ourselves. Hamburger tasted like frozen patty on stale pretzel bun. Corn dog served hot on outside and dog itself ice cold on inside. Experience very disappointing.
