Lindey’s Lake House

1 January, 2020 | Bar and Grill, Bistro, Seafood | By: Mrs Z

Having studied the online menu at Lindey’s Lake House several times over the past year or so, and having decided it just didn’t sound overly interesting, it turned out that Mr. Z chose it this Tuesday night.  I was actually pretty excited since I had seen several things on the menu that appealed to ME, […]

Next Door American Eatery

20 October, 2019 | Bistro, sandwiches / soups / salads | By: Mrs Z

I guess the overall concept of Next Door American Eatery deserves a thumbs-up, but honestly, we were both pretty unimpressed!  I totally understand the direction that many places are trying to take with the more healthy, “clean”, Vegan, GMO, etc.-conscious menus, but NDAE’s menu wasn’t that big to begin with, so with most of the […]

Square 17

14 July, 2019 | Bistro | By: Mrs Z

A cool place that had formerly been Main Street Cafe (right next door to the Hunan House on the square in Medina).  Unfortunately, the very BEST thing (and possibly the only redeeming quality) about Square 17 was our server, Kristen (and possibly the menu SELECTIONS themselves). Because Kristen was so sweet and attentive, and tried so hard […]

Rood Food & Pie

6 April, 2019 | Bistro | By: Mrs Z

I know that in the past, some of our posts have sounded a little ‘over the top’, but trust me when I say, without any exaggeration, Rood Food and Pie is seriously AMAZING!!!!  I have to say that initially I had my doubts when checking out the menu online.  Even Mr. Z (this was his […]


22 March, 2019 | Bistro, Steak / Seafood, Uncategorized | By: Mrs Z

Another one of Lakewood’s cool little spots!  Sarita is much larger once you get inside, than it appears from the street.  We had no reservations, but fortunately we arrived early enough to have our pick of tables (thanks to the really nice hostess).  Since the place was still pretty empty when we arrived, we had […]

Sauced Taproom & Kitchen

23 February, 2019 | Bistro | By: Mrs Z

Rarely are you able to check out a restaurant online and have it turn out to be exactly as it’s portrayed; but that was the case with Sauced Taproom & Kitchen – except it WAS SO MUCH BETTER!!  Sauced is such a cool place, particularly if you’re not in the mood for a full meal […]

Soho Chicken & Whiskey

20 January, 2019 | Bistro | By: Mrs Z

PHENOMENAL!!  That pretty much sums it up in one word.  Though their menu isn’t very big, there are enough items to satisfy pretty much anyone.  I mean, seriously…..who doesn’t love a deliciously juicy inside and amazingly crispy outside huge chicken breast, paired with a light, fluffy Belgian waffle accompanied by yummy maple syrup?  What’s not […]


2 December, 2018 | Bistro, Italian | By: Mrs Z

Polpetta was somewhat of a letdown.  I can’t say that it was “bad” exactly; just not someplace we’d be anxious to re-visit.  As I’ve said many times – there are way too many REALLY good restaurants out there to go back to one that was just “okay”. A positive was that our server Ashley, was […]


18 November, 2018 | Bar and Grill, Bistro, Mexican, Sports Bar | By: Mrs Z

Condado is amazing!!!  Though we’ve been to Barrio (Lakewood location), and similar as they are, somehow our experience at Condado just totally exceeded our expectations.  This was no small accomplishment on their part since they had only opened this location 3 days before our visit and EVERYTHING was running just as smoothly as though they’d […]


5 August, 2018 | Bistro | By: Mrs Z

I can’t say enough about Pinstripes!  From our seating on their beautiful patio, to the amazing menu, delicious food and incredibly fun server, Endy (who was temporarily in town from their Minnesota location to assist with their opening) – it was great.  We didn’t take advantage of any of their other offerings except the food, […]
