A few weeks ago we were heading back from a trip in Northern Ohio for the Certified Angus Beef Council (Day 1, Day 2) and decided to take a scenic comfy route back. We ended up at Buckeye Lake - which is about 30-40 minutes East of Columbus.
Sunset Inn and Larry was skeptical to say the least. It's the not the prettiest thing from the outside - or the inside - but it was AWESOME!
Racquel was our server and she was fantastic!!! She said that everything was homemade and that we were in for a treat. You could definitely see there were locals and regulars there. We started out with salad and mozz sticks (which were batter dipped and yummy!).
Larry got a ham & cheese on rye with a side of mashed potatoes. We did not know how amazing this was going to be. The ham & cheese was perfect - it was lightly grilled with melty cheese. The real star was the mashed potatoes and gravy - all homemade. Omg - so freaking good.
The best part was...
Why Should You Go? I think it's obvious - if you go to Buckeye Lake - this is where you go for dinner (and probably lunch too).
The next day we headed through Zanesville on our way home.
They really take their war memorials seriously - I think we walked by five in a two-block radius. The downtown is very pretty and manicured.
Our road trip was such a success and we had so much fun. I know we'll be back to Buckeye Lake again soon!
