“Out of the way Taste Treat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2014

Here in the boonies we don't have many opportunities for finer dining. Family style and 'home cooking' are the norm. But if you find yourself in the Hocking Hills stop here for a lunch or dinner. There are a variety of creative sandwiches and wraps, home-made soups and many site baked deserts. They also brew an excellent cup of coffee. What's not to like.

“Great out of the way restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

I was skeptical about some of the reviews. They sounded pretty good but Laurelville is a pretty small town and finding a really good restaurant seemed unlikely. Okay, I was wrong. This place is really good and actually fairly cheap. The food here was as good as 90% of the "fine dining" places I have eaten. Its kind of a long way to go to eat out, I say that because there's not much around here. Hocking Hills State Park is a few miles away so if you are in the area you should stop. We stopped on our way to the park. Watch your Garmin's, we would have ended up in somebody's backyard if we went where it said to go. Oh yeah, get the donuts, just get them! We ate donuts for days afterward and I do not feel the least bit guilty, well, maybe some but they were worth it.

“Very friendly and great diner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

The Ridge Inn was recommended to us while staying in Cabins by the Caves, and we were so glad it was! It was easy to find, and such a cozy, home style diner. We loved our lunch, but even better are the AMAZING homemade donuts they make fresh from the kitchen! I would go back just for these. If you go, get the donuts! Also a great apple market right across the street is worth a visit.

“Great lunch spot when enjoying the Hocking Hills area.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

This restaurant had a nice atmosphere, good service, reasonable prices, and tasty menu. I especially enjoyed their cusabi chicken salad, sweet potato fries, and pumpkin pie latte. Be sure to cross the street for apples and cider afterward!
