Fishers Cafe and Pub ~ Peninsula, Ohio

As I mentioned in the post about our first day in Cuyahoga Valley National Park, various town’s are located within the park grounds. One of the most popular towns in Peninsula, so it’s no surprise we dined twice in the town during our stay! Our first night there, we enjoyed a light dinner of appetizers at Fishers Cafe and Pub. You’ll have to excuse the fact that I have no photos to share of our time there, as I posted to Instagram and then promptly deleted them and can’t seem to get them downloaded again from Instagram. So if you want photos, go check out the post for sitesandbites on that app!

Fishers had both indoor and outdoor seating, but we opted for indoor as it was quite warm that day! Even though their booths are close together, they have placed partitions between them to help with pandemic comfort/restrictions. It was fairly early for dinner when stopped in, so we nearly had the entire dining room to ourselves.

We each ordered an appetizer as our “meal.” I went for their boneless wings coated in Spicy Garlic sauce. They have a ton of choices for sauces or dry rubs so you should be able to find something for all tastes! Andrew ordered the Smoked Gouda Mac and Cheese Bites, which were deep fried and filled with gooey mac and cheese. The mac and cheese was also much more homemade than other mac and cheese bites we’ve had in the past.

After our dinner, we drove up near the Peninsula Train Station and parked in a nearby lot so we could walk more of the Towpath Trail. This part of the trail was much prettier than the section near the Boston Mills Visitor Center and had a nice display on the old locks and how they worked. The trail was very wooded and we also walked further south to another lock which is part of Deep Lock Quarry Metropark. More details were near that one that explained about that “deepest” lock on the canal.

On our way back to the parking lot, we also got to watch a class of kayakers learning how to navigate this rapidly moving part of the river. I can’t say that I would have wanted to be in there with them!
