Nice hidden gem

If you have an hour or so to spare when traveling it is well worth the stop. Food was fresh, hot and timely. Nice selection on menu, great atmosphere with outside seating on the river. Appear to have their own garden for vegetables and herbs as well. Definitely worth the jaunt off the interstate on... read more

Nice atmosphere and very friendly staff. Our food was great. The best fish I've had in awhile. The hot cabbage salad was good--I didn't think I would like it but was proven wrong. The sweet potato fries were delicious! Reasonable prices and half portions were just right size.

We're just passing through Zanesville tonight; checked TripAdvisor for dinner suggestions and found Muddy Misers. What a great find! Service friendly and quick. We had the fish & homemade potato chips. Fish was very lightly battered and super fresh! Don't be deterred by the exterior! Sit on the patio and enjoy the view if the Muskingum River.

We had the Cajun Craw Tail Sandwich (perfect heat, chucks of meat, and perfect bread to soak up the sauce), Muddy Water 3 way (bursting with commenting flavors), Shrimp Fettuccini (plenty of shrimp and great seasoning), kids Mac & Cheese (homemade and taste great, drink, cup of "dirty" comes with it). Our server, Tiffany, was very nice and helpful! We... More

My husband and I stopped in Zanesville on our way back home to DC. We asked the hotel manager for a recommendation on a restaurant and he recommended Muddy MIsers. It doesn't look like much outside but we were pleasantly surprised with our meal. My husband got the fish and I got the chops with hot cabbage salad. We were... More

First trip to Zanesville. Downtown pretty much cleared out, I presume, by peripheral shopping centers. but with I - 70 running through and my hotel nearby, I followed the good reviews to MM's. Between the river, road and an active railroad, it is classic midwest. Patio, bar or inside seating. I went for the patio. Monday night is half price... More

Love the outdoor patio on a nice evening! Steaks are very good as well as the Zane Salad, get the honey Dijon vinaigrette......it's excellent! Shrimp pasta is also very good!!

We had the special of bacon wrapped scallops and also the ribs. Both were delicious. The real stars were the hot cabbage salad with Brussel sprouts and the bourbon glazed sweet potato fries.

Excellent food, super friendly waitress & reasonable prices for both food & beer. What more can you ask of a place? My only disappointment was that my salmon was supposed to come with snow peas - one of my favorite veggies. Apparently they were out of snow peas so they substituted some very anemic looking, tasteless green beans. However, the... More

We had a lovely stop here. Service was charming and quick and the location is fantastic and atmospheric, very much meeting expectations. Only minor complaints that the pesto sauce on the chicken was oversalted and the potatoes Au gratin were undercooked. (Think pasta al dente which doesn't really work on potatoes!) Quite sure they would have fixed that but didn't... More
