We have a few tables that can host a maximum of six people. Larger parties are welcome to reserve The Gathering Place. Also, we feature a large, seasonal outdoor dining area.

    My husband and I came here for our 10th anniversary. The Inn at Cedar Creek made it a memorable one. This upscale restaurant in just the perfect log cabin in the hills. Our dinner was the perfect finish to a day of hiking.

    We celebrated our parents 55th anniversary with cabins at the Inn and dinner reservations. We were seated right away, but we really wanted a later dinner time- even with our planning months in advance we had to settle for a 5:30 dining time- that turned out to be fine. The staff we encountered were great ( especially Melissa) and the restaurant is comfortable. Most of us had the steak, and it tasted fine...just not great. Wine selection ok- not great. Sides fine, and dessert as well. I guess I expected a "wow" night and weekend, but we could have grilled out at home and visited the Hocking Hills area over the weekend and saved ourselves a bunch of money for what we got. Just disappointed.

    We enjoyed the location and ambiance of this venue. The food was very good. The Wisconsin cheese and olive tapenade appetizer was really good. We enjoyed the different breads and crackers to try this on. My husband had the best fillet he's had in a long time, cooked to perfection. I had the airline chicken, which was very good. I did not care for the gnocchi, it was very sticky. Luckily, you will have room for dessert! Keep in mind, people will be walking through the dining room all the time if another event is going on. That's just the way the building is set up.

    We have visited the Inn at Cedar falls on 3 occassions. The first a Happy find; the second a fantastic meal with great memories...so it seemed perfect to celebrate our 13th anniversary. The restaurant has switched chefs...and to be fair; it seemed many were enjoying their meals. We were a bit disappointed. The waitress did not get my drink order correct. Having a shellfish/seafood allergy I found my choices VERY limited. The salad came in house and ceasar. With only lemon vinegarette or Ceasar dressing, my only choice was the house salad; it kind of tasted like lemonade dressing? The pasta was fair..but nothing I HAVE to have again; we ended up skipping dessert. All in all...it was a very expensive dinner I left hungry from.

    The food was good, but entree choices were limited to one each of pasta, beef, pork, fish and chicken. That sounds like a lot, but if you are in the mood for beef but don't like the preparation -- or want a smaller dish -- you're out of luck.

    I had been a few time before as a kid with my parents and returned this summer with my boyfriend and per the usual The Inn at Cedar Falls did NOT disappoint. The food was impeccable and in the ten years since I've been there they have been maintained an authentic and tranquil atmosphere perfect for a romantic dinner for two or to bring your friends or family. I will return here every time I visit Hocking Hills!

    We were expecting a very romantic dinner for two after our wedding and it was anything but. We were seated at patio furniture with people on both sides. There were only three couples in the whole place. The food was over priced and the portions were tiny. We were very disappointed in the whole experience.

    Selecting a special retreat to celebrate a monumental change in one's life is never easy, but God led us to the perfect place at The Inn at Cedar Falls. We had no idea how picturesque the area was, nor did we realize how we would be treated to the best cottage and food we have experienced in a very long time. The atmosphere is priceless. Perfect for romance and relaxation. We will definitely be returning!

    Dinner at The Inn at Cedar Falls was very good. The Inn has a spectacular drink list, from wine, Ohio craft beer, to desert drinks. Also very willing to make any special concoctions that you may request. Menu is simple, but contains some very nice choices. Limited selection on starters. Fantastic desert options, you may need to ask as they are not listed on the menu. Overall, great place, great food, very enjoyable dinner and atmosphere. Be sure to walk the grounds, beautiful.

    The Inn at Cedar Falls is a gem, about one hour and fifteen minutes from Columbus. This restaurant and inn, built from the ground up by dedicated people over several years, is one of a kind. If you've never been, please put it on your food/travel bucket list. A beautiful, calm getaway for a meal, an overnight or long weekend.

    A wonderful evening in a wonderful spot! I had the veal chop, my husband had the filet & we shared the cheese & olive tampenade starter & the peanut butter creme brulee for dessert. Everything was delicious and our server perfectly balanced attentiveness with giving us time to enjoy our meal. It says a lot when even the side dishes are amazing!

    My family, guests and I had a wonderful experience at the restaurant this past weekend. Our children were beautifully accommodated and treated as special guests. Our meals were divine, and the service was exquisite! Since I am in the travel and tourism world myself, I especially took note how the waitstaff asked each table during breakfast what they had planned for the day and if they needed travel directions. The same was repeated during dinner asking diners about their day and what they liked best. Such a lovely added touch to our stay!

    Dined on 6/4/2014
    Everything before and after the entree was delicious. My sister had a filet that had a large portion of fat-not what one would expect from a five star restaurant. My tilapia was beautifully cooked but bland. Both entrees in fact were perfectly cooked but had no seasoning whatsoever! The rice and mashed potatoes also lacked so much as salt and pepper. I would have complained but since only the vegetable of the day was seasoned it seemed the blandness was intended. The appetizer was great, the service excellent and the dessert was terrific. It's bad enough to have to hike across a steep gravel driveway in the rain and cross a state highway to dine without having meals fit only for a senior citizen without taste buds. Sad.

    The waiter was very nice. The food was good, especially mashed potatoes. My husband wasn't fond of the rice, but liked the scallops. One problem, found out next day my daughter ordered wine and extras for our anniversary that we didn't receive. She did this because she knew the restaurant is more than we normally spend for a dinner out. Overall a good experience, but sad we didn't get all the extras.

    I have been to the Inn many times, with family and friends, and have never been disappointed. Their focus is to provide their customers with wonderful dining in a warm, welcoming, cozy atmosphere. Everyone I have introduced to Terry and Ellen's Hocking Hills treasure has returned on their own - they have fallen in love with it just as I have! The staff truly goes the extra mile to ensure that their visitors have a wonderful experience. On our recent visit, the lobster bisque and the coffee-encrusted filet mignon were spectacular.
