Wait till spring and I’ll have my meal on the patio.

In talking to Eric Lee,”the menu is interesting enough for someone to travel from Columbus or Cleveland to enjoy and accessible enough that local residents will come for a regular meal or that  very special occasion.” I’m from Lancaster,Ohio and I didn’t think it was a bad drive at all. Eric makes the drive to work from Athens and he says he really enjoys the scenery along the way.

DSC_0021 I had already eaten lunch so I didn’t get to try the hearty pulled pork sandwich or Zaleski Burger with hand cut fries. I’m  thinking  this may be the spot to take Linda for Valentines Day……………. Have a great day and Thanks For Stopping By.

Great shots, Joe. I haven't visited Lake Hope since before the lodge burned. Your pix make me want to go back. It's beautiful country.
