Great place

A true gem. No other place like it in zanesville. Great lunch menu with good quality ingredients. Summer time the back patio is my favorite outdoor dining spot on zanesville.

Great atmosphere on the river. There is outdoor seating. Love to sit at the bar and look out over the river.

A rustic restaurant bordering the river, looks more like a smoky bar from the outside but if you enter you will find a quaint small well kept restaurant inside. Was here twice in 2 days. Staff was very pleasant. There is a small bar area, maybe 10 seats and 2 tvs. They have lots of wine, as a matter of... More

While it is a bit pricey, this place has great food. Many unique menu items, specials, etc. Nice beer selection and full bar. Always a nice crowd and great service here as well.

Fantastic service, patio with view of river, very relaxing, good food and interesting menu, A must for Zane Grey fans with lots of posters, pictures, books, letters, and a ceiling full of fishing rods all used by Zane Grey.

Muddy Misers is probably one of my favorite restaurants in Zanesville. The food has always been excellent each time I have eaten there. I gave 4 stars because the service is not always great. I find that is the only downfall about the place.

We visited this restaurant last spring 2014. I heard it changed hands after that. At the time we went, the service was so-so and the food wasn't all that good for the prices they wanted. I would have to think long and hard before giving it another try.
