Der Dutchman, the the southeastern Ohio town of Waynesville (Antiques capital of Ohio) , may well be the most popular restaurant in town. I have been here twice, once for Sunday lunch and another time for Saturday night dinner. On both of my visits, there was a long line of eager folks waiting for a table, although the place is quite large. If you enjoy good down home cooking, and plenty of it, then Der Dutchman is the place for you. The food here is not gormet - just good solid basic meats, vegetables, breads and desserts. You may either order from the menu, or take advantage of their plentiful buffet. Either way, you won't leave hungry.
This is one of five restaurants in the Der Dutchman chain, all located in or near Amish communities in Ohio. The setting of the Waynesville restaurant makes it especially appealing, at an old mill site, with a walkway and benches beside a beautiful stream. There is also a fine gift shop next door, offering Amish made crafts and other items.
Favorite Dish: I love the fried chicken, although I feel the Amish would do better to make their stuffing with cornbread rather than light bread.
Located in the old Rookwood Pottery building, this resturant features general good old American food like thier variety of burgers named after famous Cincinnati people and places. You can read about the history of Rookwood pottery and even eat inside one of the three kilns that they used to use to create the famed pottery. Its good food, a neat atmosphere, and doesnt cost a fortune. Who could ask for more?
The waitresses are very friendly and helpful,
the beers are very good, and the selection is quite varied, you may want to check for the "special" - we were there during the Christmas holidays and we tried their pumpkin beer -- very good stuff. The T-bone steak was delicious.
Favorite Dish: Chicken fried steak
--large servings must bring big appetite
Grilled over a wood fired rotisseri there were a multitude of roasting chickens . The Italian bread and dipping sauce were excellent. With pungent olive oil and bits of ripe olive in a tomato base. The view was pleasant. Service prompt and correct.
Favorite Dish: I recommend the romaine salad with pine nuts and nicoise olives. It was delicious with the mushroom soup which had a hint of shallot. Very tasty and well presented.
The tavern has a country mansion quality to it. Maybe it was one. The various floors are kind of staggered and it really is cool. You can look down from the dining area in some places into the bar. We are talking animal heads mounted on the walls an al that kind of stuff. Furniture done mostly in light colored woods with lots of varnish, from what I can recall. The whole town is very nice.
Favorite Dish: Elk (seriously, it is awesome).
You can get osterich there too, although personally I think the elk is better - the elk tastes amazingly good. Like beef, kind of, but without the bovine health scares.
I put the buffet in capital letters because it is one of the best selection's of food I have ever eaten:) We used to have this restaurant chain all over the Midwest, but now it seems to have died out except in Ohio! So, if you come across a Shoney's, eat there!!!! It's fantastic and they have the Shoney Bear as a mascot, which is the most adorable bear ever:)
Favorite Dish: The Buffet!!!!!!

The Kahiki Supper Club was my favorite restaurant but the property was sold to Walgreen's. The owners are planning to open another Kahiki in a couple of years along the Scioto River in Columbus,Ohio. Kahiki was 50 years old and on the National Register of Historic Places. It was beautiful with gigantic torches on the roof and a huge tiki god inside in front of which was a long table decorated with colorful flowers. There were grass huts, kings' chairs, aquariums, and 'the mystery drink.' If you are ever in Columbus a couple of years from now, look for the Kahiki. You won't be disappointed.
