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.

Stopped here for lunch on a Saturday afternoon and we enjoyed ourselves so much we stayed well past dinner. Met the nicest locals and travelers at the cozy bar and the staff was the best I have encountered in awhile. Tina and Greg were working the bar and front with zest and Kem in the kitchen producing masterpieces for a... More

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.

Very interesting place. Dine on the patio and watch the river go by. Some of the best food in town and is under new ownership. Great steaks and fun food. What more could you ask.

Nice view of the river. The server was very nice, but clueless. We asked about the beers available, and there was no menu. The shrimp and linguine were tepid, not hot. The crab cakes were good, but warm,not hot. Ridiculously expensive for the quality of the food.

Muddy Misers is Not your average chain, which I love! It's small but not usually busy, and the patio by the river is great.

I've never had a bad meal here. I love the egg dressing on the wedge salad. The ribs are super, the sandwiches are great; ask for the muddy double, if you can handle it. I've taken several colleagues there, and they thought it was cozy and tasty. My Canadian in laws say it's the best fish and chips they've ever... More
