Great picks! It will be hard to choose just one place. I love the Valentine's dish names at Totally Cooked & never would've known about their packages. What a great idea! So glad to know Sarah's Vineyard will be open & have a half-price menu. Decisions, decisions. Thanks Alanna! I am looking forward to more of your picks & pics! (Those strawberries look amazing).

You forgot Chowder House right in the heart of Cuyahoga Falls! You must try it immediately! :)

Hi Jenn, thanks! I agree, it's a hard decision, and we're fortunate to have so many great places to choose from in and around the Falls. I also agree with you about the strawberries! They are like a work of art (an edible one). Thanks again!

Hi Amy, thanks for reading and for the reminder, as I've been meaning to try the Chowder House for some time now. I've heard nothing but great things about it. I'll keep it in mind for a future article. Thanks again! :)

Love Chowder House and Sarah's Vineyard! Great times in the summer with the mid-week pizzas!

I'm really looking forward to mid-week pizzas at Sarah's Vineyard this summer! (And to trying the Chowder House, as you've just added to the long list of people who've told me good things about it.)
