Nice relaxed place with indoor and outdoor seating. The food is great and they have plenty of vegetarian options along with the typical tavern food. I highly recommend the vegetable hummus wrap.

I like fisher's. I live in the area and have visited many times. The food and service are fine and it's nice being right on the towpath. However, they have lost my business during this COVID pandemic. My husband and I ordered food to go...to do a picnic in the park on a nice summer evening. When I had to go in to pick up the food, I was surprised how crowded it was - social distancing was not happening in any form. Also to pick up my food I had to walk through the entire restaurant, outside to the back bar. Why didn't they have the hostess or someone out front managing take out? It made no sense. While the employees were wearing masks, many were not wearing them properly (i.e. under their noses) and there didn't seem to by any extra space between tables. I'm am disappointed in the restaurant for this but I will return after the pandemic is over.More

My wife and I took a long weekend and were hungry after traveling and before hiking the trail. I had the grilled chicken wrap and it was excellent. Also one must try the eggplant fries-out of this world. Place offers both indoor and outdoor dining....Worth a stop if you’re hiking or biking in the area.More

My husband and I went here for an early dinner on a Saturday late afternoon. This was our first time here. There was a lot of customers so we knew it must be good. We didn’t wait too long to get seated despite the crowd....Shows that the manager knows when to schedule staff to cover the crowd. We had the eggplant fries and deviled eggs for apps. Both were very good. My husband had the fried fish and I had the avocado BLT. We both enjoyed our dinner. It was hot and fresh and delicious. The service was really good as well. Friendly servers and staff. I highly recommend trying out this local gem.More

Nice place to stop with outdoor seating when in Peninsula OH. We were biking the town path trail and stopped in for lunch and a cold beer. Service was fast and friendly. Prices were reasonable. We tried there Impossible Burger and it was very tasty....Outdoor tables are shaded by umbrellas. Not to crowded during the week.More

Please do not go here. There is mold growing in the ice bin where servers get ice for your drink. Also the kitchen is disgusting. Live maggots coming out of a hole in the floor of the kitchen next to the dish area. This place...should be shut down. The owner is awful to employees and to customers. You've been warned.More

This local place is hugely popular due in part to its location right in the heart of Peninsula, a quaint little stop on the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad, the Ohio and Erie Towpath, and in the heart of the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. They offer...nightly and seasonal specials, have an ice cream counter and a patio in addition to two dining rooms. Service is sometimes slow, but today I came in after the lunch rush and was greeted and served immediately. Their menu is varied, including breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as a page full of beer options. But, if you go for no other reason, go for an order of eggplant fries. Crispy, ultra light breading doesn’t overpower, and if you’re lucky enough to get them served immediately, they practically melt in your mouth. Nothing bitter or tough about them. They have this recipe down pat! Dip into the wasabi sauce on the side for absolute perfection.More

While eating lunch, a family came in with a dog and asked to go to the patio.....they were not allowed to do so.... Hope they don't have a double standard.
