“Great lunch spot when enjoying the Hocking Hills area.”
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!

“Very good. Inexpensive”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

We stopped at the Ridge Inn on our way home from staying in the Hocking Hills. Their croisant french toast was very good and very reasonable. We will probably stop again when in the area and try out their lunch or dinner menu. Make sure you stop across the street as well and pick up apple cider.

“We dine here all the time, ever since they opened about 5 years ago!”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

With two other restaurants in this village, we wondered how The Ridge Inn would compare. After our first visit, we never went back to the others. You simply cannot beat the food (high quality, creative and delicious, some of it obtained from local growers), the staff (from chefs to servers, all are friendly, professional and make sure you are well cared for), or the price (so very reasonable). The decor is fun, mixing some antiques with lots of art work. Kids from the local grade school sometimes have displays. There are many professional photos of the Hocking Hills for sale. Jo, the owner, is usually on-site, and you'll see her - and often her daughters - working hard to provide their customers with the best possible service. Jo is so sweet and friendly, and often stops to greet customers. Flowers decorating the windowsill are often from her garden. She's also the chef producing her famous donuts on the weekends. What's so special about the donuts? You'll just have to try them and see for yourself!

“Great food”
Reviewed October 9, 2013 via mobile

Stopped in after picking up our apples and cider across the street. Had breakfast here which was good and tasty. Menu was varied and sufficient. Great coffee and good service. A very nice place to stop. Had not been in the Hills for many years and it is a recommended stop when in the area

“Good food, decent prices, appearance needs upkeep”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

We stopped here during a motorcycle ride down to Hocking Hills. Read reviews on Tripadvisor before leaving. The food was tasty. We had the southwest chicken sandwich & cusabi chicken sandwich. Sides were onion tangles & sweet potato fries. I had a soda so the total bill was $21 before tip. The waiter was friendly & super polite. Service was fast-food arrived in about 10 minutes. Portions were right as we were hungry but not starving. The patio was nice to sit in the sun. Only negative was the flower beds needed some serious weeding. Across the street was the apple house. During lunch many people walked out with apples & cider. After lunch went over to the apple house & bought some cider. The Apple house only takes cash. $4.50 for a half gallon. I have yet taste the cider. Overall a perfect day trip. Although we will try a new place to eat next time.
