Wonderful food, lots of menu variety, friendly, excellent service. Loved it so much when we visited the area that we kept going back everyday for dinner and never went anywhere else! Fabulous desserts, too!

The pro's for this restaurant is they have delicious desserts, friendly staff, beautiful atmosphere, and good steaks. It is hard for me to understand why a restaurant of this status serves packaged processed slaw which tastes horrible. Homemade chips are so dark brown that they taste as if they are nearly burned. The soup that I ordered in the past... More

You won't be disappointed here! I've never had a bad meal here. The steaks are one of the best items on the menu! No steak sauce needed. Their blackened chicken pasta is beyond delicious! The Jacob Myers burger is a must also! A fried egg on the burger with a huge onion ring on the top! If you go ask... More

Always great food !! Club sandwich is always a good choice with a side order of fried pickles for an app .

We first experienced JMs on a Saturday road trip. At first I had been reluctant to visit because I thought it was a more atmosphere. But, we went anyways this day. And boy are we glad we did. Since then we try and make it our Friday night weekend kickoff. We vote the top pick for you should be the... More

We live on the river and this one of the few places you can visit by boat in our area! The food is consistently good, especially the steaks, and the atmosphere is very casual!

We had heard Jacob Myers was a good place To eat. It truly is. We had lunch on the porch, on a beautiful autumn day. The food was delicious and very generous servings. The staff were very helpful with selecting our meal and very friendly. If you are near Dayton, give it a try.

This is a nice restaurant in Dayton which several others I know had recommended. The food was served fresh and service was very good. One thing I never before was fried green beans for an appetizer. Definitely different but kind of like most fired vegetables. They also had fried pickles which I was told were really good. I'm not a... More

I met friends for a retirement dinner and was wonderfully pleased with the entire experience. The facility was clean and well kept. The waiter and waitress we had were both friendly and attentive. Now for the best part - other than the company - the food. I had fish and chips which was recommended by a friend. I could not... More

Our first visit found good food, good prices, good service and would be a good view if the river wasn't dried up. It was a beautiful fall day, so we sat out on the porch overlooking the river where, even though it was very low, the water fowl were taking advantage of it. Its just off the main route through...
