In every corner of Knox County, you’ll find beloved Signature dishes to dig into.
The Kenyon Inn and Restaurant in Gambier is known for its expert take on the classic Reuben sandwich, layering house-braised corned beef brisket, Ohio-made Guggisberg baby Swiss cheese, sauerkraut and Thousand Island on a swirled pumpernickel and rye bread.
Also in Gambier, The Village Inn serves up gourmet pub fare fit for even the heartiest of appetites. Stick with a classic black & bleu burger or be a little more adventurous and try an island-inspired jerk burger. Either way, a side of fresh-cut fries is non-negotiable.
Visit the Howard Hilton in Howard early in the week for their fan-favorite Taco Tuesday nights, with plenty of tacos, loaded nachos and ice-cold drinks on hand. Mazza’s in Mount Vernon, is known for its flavorful, freshly tossed “Famous Mazza Salad,” which you can order as a side, as whole entrée or even on top of a pizza.
Before your dinner reservation, find a seat at The Library Bar in the handsomely appointed Alcove Restaurant & Lounge and sip in The Bookworm: Piper Sonoma Brut, house grenadine and fresh citrus. Enjoy pizza pies straight from the oven at Pizza Burg or fresh, pillowy Texas kolaches from Kolacheez Coffee Bar in Centerburg, situated right along the Heart of Ohio Trail.
The Hangout in Danville really lives up to its name, a favorite spot for local, especially on half-price burger night every Tuesday. In addition to delicious pizza, you’ll receive a warm welcome from the owners and staff of Amato’s Woodfire Pizza.
