Unique Restaurant in Lancaster, Ohio


Yesterday, my husband talked me in to a little business/road trip to Lancaster, Ohio. He was going to meet a client that he had sold a fixer upper to earlier this year and was excited to share his progress and have a sign placed in his yard letting folks know it was “Coming Soon” to be listed early July 2016.  I have to admit. I am a sucker for rehabs and love seeing what people can do with a sad and pathetic property. My husband has completed 2 rehabs over the past 18 months; you can check it out at this link http://www.centralohioforsaleblog.com/2015/11/  After touring the client’s property and chatting with him about the improvements, it was time to refuel and find some good eats!  Since we had driven through the heart of Old Town Lancaster, Ohio, on our way to the client’s home I had spied a few unique restaurants that I was hopeful to try. There were 2 restaurants that caught my eye: Table 1 (closed on Mondays) and Ale House 1890, which was open!!  Yippie!! I was excited to try a new and local eatery http://alehouse1890.com/news/

The Ale House 1890 is located on Main Street in the heart of  the historic District. The building is beautiful and the interior is completely remodeled with loads of character highlighting the historic bones of such a old town treasure. It was record setting temps, thus we declined the patio. However, it looked inviting for a cooler day in the rear of the building.

Now, time for the true test…… THE FOOD!  The lunch menu had many appetizing options, but we both settled for a lunch sandwich and wrap. The beverages were so enticing… that is the alcoholic ones…. The Buckeye Mule served in a copper mug caught my eye, but it was just too early in the day for me.  So, I recommended to my husband we should come back for dinner. The food was tasty and plenty and the service was great!

Before leaving the unique and inviting restaurant, we discovered that the restaurant is part of a special 2016 Tour of Homes and Businesses June 25 & 26, 2016. This is sponsored by the Fairfield Heritage Association. Here is the link for anyone interested http://www.fairfieldheritage.org
