I have eaten here many times during my lunch hour with customers and coworkers. Many of them out of town people have requested to eat here again if we were having lunch. It is a great atmosphere, especially if it is nice out and you can set on the back patio overlooking the river. They have a great menu with... More

The restaurant has character, atmosphere, and very good food. The menu is eclectic with a couple of daily specials. The theme of Muddy's pays tribute to author and Zanesville native Zane Grey.

A friend and I met in Zanesville recently for a few days as it was halfway between our current homes. We weren't sure what Zanesville had to offer, but it was convenient. Not only did we have fun exploring some local history and checking out some great antique spots, but we had a tasty lunch at Muddy Misers. We ordered... More

The riverside patio may be one of the best in Ohio. You cannot hear the Muskingham flowing by but you sure can see it and it's a beauty. Ever had a Walleye Reuben? It's pretty darn good. And the three cheese Mac 'n Cheese is seriously yummy! The place ain't fancy but it's worth the trip, just about wherever you... More

This place could be so much better. This is a follow up review. Small limited menu but they do run specials daily. Some interesting sounding items on the menu but even the excellent menu descriptions don't make up for bland and boring offerings (the walleye reuben sounds good but has not taste at all). Very pricey for the area and... More

We enjoyed our dinner at this place. It was just a little crowded on the deck, but still was enjoyable. The service was great and the food was pretty good. I had heard about the walleye and tried it. For my taste, I thought it was bland, but still good. The crab cakes were good and the steaks were good.

I like Muddy's, but they can be really good or just OK depending on the visit. The food is always very good but service and timing suffer occasionally.

We had dinner here in Dec 2013 and things were great! This is not an inexpensive place to eat so our expectations were set high when we decided to dine there again. This time however, (May 2014) we felt robbed! My husband ordered the ribs and they were "out of them" until 4:30pm. Overhearing the other tables, there were a... More

We tried Misers at the suggestion of the concierge at the Fairfield Marriott adjacent to I-70 Exit 150, to avoid the chain restaurants next to the interstate, on our way from CT to CO. My wife and I both thought the meals were excellent, and our server was attentive and courteous. The prices were reasonable for the portions and quality.... More

Good food, especially on a sunny day when one can sit outside near the river! Great cocktails and pleasant surroundings.
