There are a couple of places that have become happy ports of call here in MPC. One is the Blue Star Tavern in Solon on Miles Road. It has a nice atmosphere, plenty of TV to watch sports, good company and you cannot beat the steak quesidilla. Seriously. They make the best steak quesidilla in the western hemisphere. If you are fan of just steak and cheese ask for without the sauce.
Moosehead Hoof and Ladder in North Olmstead Falls. It has a deck outside for dining and watching the river and the railroad traffic. The food and service are great. Both are friendly to military veterans.
