These aren’t exactly "road food" establishments – the only one I could think of was George’s Dinner Bell Diner in Painesville and I’m pretty sure that went out of business.
A little west of Geneva in Grand River, Ohio are Pickle Bill’s Lobster House and another good seafood restaurant right across the street (Brennan’s?) Pickle Bill’s is worth it for the quirky atmosphere and the riverside deck with floating gazebo bar (which recently floated away when the river flooded and had to be rescued from Lake Erie . It’ll satisfy a craving for Lake Erie walleye or perch. http://www.picklebills.com (Take I-90 or Route 2 to Route 44 north and follow the signs – Grand River [the town] is only a couple of blocks long and everyone knows Pickle Bills)
The Geneva area is known for wineries as well, and there are two worth mentioning that go beyond the usual Pink Niagara sweet wines.
Ferrante Winery is in Harpersfield Township just south of Geneva and serves an excellent menu mostly Italian, but can get steak and seafood too) http://www.ferrantewinery.com
Also in Madison (next town west of Geneva) is Debonne Vineyards. They have lunches and dinners available but reservations are mandatory. Their menu includes simple stuff like picnic lunches, BBQ baby back ribs and chicken, and a fixed price dinner menu. http://www.debonne.com
In Geneva I can only think of one restaurant/tavern on the main drag (Lake Road) – High Tide Tavern – open for breakfast, and all day – mostly sandwiches and fryer stuff. <no website>
If all else fails, the restaurant at the state park lodge is supposed to be good.
The chamber of commerce has a website at http://www.visitgenevaonthelake.com
I’m looking for some recommendations on a place to eat near Geneva, OH or Geneva-On-The-Lake. I looked through the forums, but I just kept finding stuff for Geneva, IL, Geneva, NY, Lake Geneva, WI, etc.
Geneva and Geneva-on-the-Lake, OH
