Anybody have any recommendations for where to stop or eat along I80/I90 in Ohio? We're going on a big road trip and we're thinking we'll be in or near Ohio when we're searching for dinner or stopping for the night. The last time we did this, the ol' "drive-around-and-look-for-a-place" ended in failure (ok, a Pizza Hut, but same difference).

if you are headed east I would strongly recommend you save your appetite for somewhere closer to Cleveland... Michael Symon has two of Ohio's best restaurants in downtown & near downtown Cleveland: Lola & Lolita. The Blue Point is a top notch seafood restaurant that has been doing solid business for 15-20 years and has the best $8 blue-cheese olive martinis in town. Parallax in Tremont is a quite unique and highly satisfying dinning experience. Sushi Rock is a very good, if not a bit chichi fusion sushi locale, and if you want Ohio's best hand-crafted microbrew head to Great Lakes Brewery for the Christmas Ale and some damn good pub grub. There are some other places I had in mind.... PM me if you want some more info.

Thanks for the suggestions. We'd be shooting for western Ohio, but to be honest we'd probably be pretty happy to make it to Cleveland. Also, more looking for a pleasant good grub experience after a long drive rather than something super memorable.

ok... Toledo has the Oliver House which houses the Maumee Brewing Co., Rockwell's, Mutz, and the Cafe which are all casual and good food style joints. And being on Lake Erie I would suggest trying to find some quality Lake Erie Walleye. For a fresh water fish, walleye can be pretty damn delicious! In between Toledo & Cleveland is Sandusky (home of Cedar Point and some excellent roller coasters). If you don't plan to eat in one of these three locations, the rest of I90/80 is a pretty lonely stretch of northern Ohio and you'll be glad to find that rest stop Pizza Hut if you do! Hope that helps!

Thanks a lot for the recommendations. I'll print them out and take them along. Driving around in circles looking for a place to eat was rather depressing. The Pizza Hut Adventure was a bit depressing, but for what it was, I couldn't complain (the people working there were nice), but I'm hoping for something better.

Thanks again.

Melt restaurant is what you are looking for. In the Cleveland area - both Lakewood and Cleveland Heights.
