This restaurant housed in a former bank building in the heart of downtown Tipp City offers quality dining in a small-town setting. The decor is warm and welcoming and is a delight for the senses. The fireplace creates a cozy atmosphere while the full bar allows patrons a relaxing stop while awaiting a fabulous meal. The inviting atmosphere encourages relaxed conversation. You may be surprised to find that a restaurant in such a small town has some rather sophisticated choices on the menu alongside your more normal fare, with entrees such as ostrich being offered. If you are looking for a decadent dessert, look no further than the butter-drenched English Tea Cake! An easy drive from all points in the Dayton area, words cannot do it justice. A visit is a must and will be the first of many.

Reservations accepted for dinner only.

We had an excellent dinner! We met friends from Piqua and it was a perfect restaurant to spend the evening at. The bar area is wonderful and they had live entertainment when we arrived.

My wife says this is her new favorite restaurant, so she would likely give it a 5. I also really enjoyed it. Everything from the appetizer to the desert were on point with a creative flair. My only criticism would be that just about everything we ordered was just a little bit sweet. Each individual dish was spot on, but I’m going to try and avoid that overarching theme next time. For the record my wife thought everything was perfect and that I was crazy for uttering anything but praise, so your mileage may vary. The ambiance was nice. We particularly enjoyed the live music, which was loud enough to enjoy but not affect conversation. Our server was great. We spent about $120 with tip, for the two of us. On the expensive side around here, but fine for a nice night out given the quality. We’ll definitely be back. If you like fish, try the ruby trout. Cheers.

Coldwater is one of the best fine dining establishments in our area. Food preparation, timing of courses, great drinks, and muscles to die for. Doesn't get any better than that.

I'm always a fan of coldwater cafe. The food is always delicious. The port shoulder was beautifully cooked and very tender. As usual, I had to get the cherry almond bread pudding. Huge fan of the bread that is served. This place gets two thumbs up!!!!
