Family Friendly Options


Hocking Hills caters to a variety of visitors, including families with all ages. Fortunately, the region has plenty of several places to eat that are sure to please even the pickiest of eaters.

At the top of the list, The Olde Dutch Restaurant offers country fare for hungry bellies. Its large and plentiful buffet (pictured below) is a big time crowd pleaser, especially when you and your family need to fuel up after a day of hiking. The restaurant also has one of the better Hocking Hills gift shops for those wanting souvenirs.

Jimbo’s Burgers and Beer is another great option, given its proximity to both the cabins and the hiking trails. Offering some of the best burgers in the area (as well as solid sandwiches, pizzas, and salads), Jimbo’s has easy options for adults and kids alike. It has a sports bar atmosphere and the inside atmosphere might surprise you if you’re just judging it from its roadside appearance. It also offers a good option for eating outdoors, when weather cooperates.

A bit further away, located in Logan, is Pizza Crossing with its reputation for having the best pizza in the area. It’s nothing fancy or overly elaborate, just solid pizza that kids are sure to appreciate. Another option in Logan would be The Feed with its wide variety of specialty burgers, sandwiches, pizzas, and salads. You can get adventurous or walk the straight and narrow with your meal order at The Feed, but won’t walk away hungry. They can have some pretty wild daily specials, too.

Closer to home, Captain Ron’s Pirate Pizza (we honestly have no idea what the connection is between Hocking Hills and piracy, so just go with it) is another pizza joint that also serves subs and wings and won’t break the bank for a large group.

The town of Logan also has many fast food options available, if wanting something quick and familiar. These options would include McDonalds, Arby’s, Subway, Dairy Queen, Wendy’s, Taco Bell, and others.
