Local Restaurant Offers Great Deal on Lobster Every Fall
by Brit Charek
Fisher's Cafe & Pub might be one of Northeast Ohio's best kept secrets, especially in the fall. Every September, my grandmother and I start scheming about when we can make a Wednesday night trip to the valley to indulge in a lobster dinner at a more than reasonable price. (And sometimes we go two or three times!)
Fisher's is a family-friendly establishment, with an ice cream bar in the front of the house which keeps the kiddos happy and a generous selection of local beers on draft to keep the grownups happy, not to mention reasonable happy hour specials. When the weather's nice there's a beautiful patio out back to accommodate all the bikers and hikers that end up in Peninsula via the gorgeous Towpath Trail nearby. When the weather's not quite as forgiving, the inside atmosphere becomes a cozy haven for skiiers and snowboarders. And in between, there's weekend clambakes and Wednesday night lobsterfest in the autumn.
On Wednesday nights, you can enjoy a whole lobster, already split with the icky innards replaced with delicious cornbread stuffing, baked to perfection in traditional New England fashion, along with a baked potato and all the butter you can handle for a mere $14.99. They start serving at 5 pm, so it's best to call ahead to make sure they haven't run out of lobsters by the time you get there.
Last week I went to my first Lobsterfest of the year, and it did not disappoint. I just might go back tomorrow. In addition to my meal, I couldn't help myself from ordering a basket of eggplant fries, served up with a delicious cucumber-wasabi "bistro sauce." I'd highly recommend them.
Fisher's Cafe & Pub is a family-owned establishment, now onto its third generation in their 54th year of business. To learn more about their story, check out their menu or buy some Fisher's Cafe gear, check out their website at http://www.fisherscafe.com/.
