Fireside LoungeKindred Spirits, one of the most sought after Hocking Hills restaurants, provides a casual fine-dining experience offering superb gourmet meals. Located on the Inn & Spa at Cedar Falls property in its original 1840s log cabins, Kindred Spirits seats 45 people. The cabins are quaint and intimate with most tables accommodating 1-2 couples. We have several tables that can host a maximum of six people. Larger parties are welcome to reserve The Gathering Place. Also, we feature a seasonal outdoor dining area. Food is extraordinaire with a casual atmosphere. Offering cooked to order cuisine, guests can watch their meals being prepared before them in the open kitchen. Our chefs use the finest fresh ingredients, some locally grown in the Hocking Hills. Kindred Spirits is open every day for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We are open to the public without needing a reservation, except for parties of 7 or more, please call and make a reservation.

Each season the Inn presents a new menu. The Kindred Spirits Restaurant entrees might include Bistro Steak, grilled and served with a Gorgonzola Thyme Cream, Pan Seared Double Airline Chicken Breast basted with our Orange Marmalade BBQ sauce or Grilled Center Cut Pork Chop topped with Rosemary, Bacon and Balsamic Tomatoes and more. The Inn prides itself in choosing only the best ingredients so the menu changes seasonally. Dinner guests may arrive prior to dinner to enjoy an early glass of wine or a mug of cold beer while chatting in the tavern, the fireside lounge or roof top garden.
