Taffy's attracts a wide variety of better than average live music. It can be folk, blues, and somewhat country. The music is too loud because this is a place to come with friends and family and listen, sip, and talk.

The selection of beers is excellent, the staff are friendly, and the price is good.

Jell's Sports Grill

Jell's has great homemade food served by a friendly staff in a fun family friendly atmosphere. We have 14 TV's, ice cold beer and a full bar. We have a large menu with anything from fresh wings & burgers to handcut steaks & shrimp & grits.

My first attempt trying this place finished with me giving up after 20 minutes when my order hadn't been taken. Second attempt I did get served. The pulled pork sandwich was good, especially for the area and if that was the end of it, I...MoreThank you so much for your review. We have had some staffing issues within the past few months which I believe have been resolved. Again thank you for your input & your patronage! yoshi

I had a pizza from here in August 2016. My kids thought it was just OK. I have to agree. Not the best. However, it was the staff that really turned me away. Simply rude and careless. The prices were unjustifiably high.

China Wok

Reviewed By paragkarania - Flowood, Mississippi

This place is not worth visiting for dinner. The buffet trays were practically empty and cold. Nothing special beside the typical selection that one would get at a place like this. The ice cream fridge has not been cleaned for a long time and has build up of not sure what. The furniture and items in the table have aged. Service is quick though .

Skyline Chili

Reviewed By John C - Chester, Virginia

The restaurant is exactly what Skyline is about - spotlessly clean, with very good food served very quickly - important while on the road. What sets this location apart is the staff. They are friendly, energetic and super positive. They turned a simple fast food meal into a great visit.
This is worth the detour off of I-70!

Olde Schoolhouse Vineyard & Winery

Reviewed By travel4CEU - Eaton, Ohio

This is a new business. A little family owned winery. Vines are new and still growing for future use at this site. Housed in an old schoolhouse. Clean. Inviting. Friendly. Currently only open on Friday and Saturday. Great place to stop if you are passing through Eaton, OH. Just a few short miles off of I-70.

The 1808 Cafe

Reviewed By DaytonOhio - Clayton

I met with a small group of retired elementary teachers here on a Friday at about 11:30 AM. Boy, were they busy! There is a good reason for this.

The prices are reasonable and you have a decent but limited selection from which to pick. Combo's include chips and a drink. They do have salads available as well. You get one free refill on soda. This place also doubles as a coffee house.

I had the chicken quesadilla and found it to be very good. The rest of the group also completely enjoyed their meals. We have decided that we will return in the not too distant future.

The restaurant is very clean and includes a charming turn of the century atmosphere. The owner was present and made sure that everything went well. They are a little slow, but the food is well worth a little wait.

You can park free on the streets of Eaton. The restaurant is just north of the court house. Take the time to walk about downtown Eaton a bit and enjoy a nice little country town.

I try independently owned small food establishments whenever and where-ever I go. Usually happy I go out of the way to do so. Adam's is no exception. Was in a rush and found this to be good food fast, NOT fast food. Adam brings his southern upbringing to Mid West Ohio. The price for my pulled pork Sancho was only $6.00, and it was one of the larger portions I have received at any price. The sauce is his own and just right for most. (Not bold, but not lame) Sad that I bet so many people in Eaton haven't ever been here. Bring cash- at this time no plastic accepted here at this time.
