I am a Restaurant.com sponsored blogger and am writing this post as part of the Restaurant.com Review Crew program. However, all statements and opinions are 100% my own.
I began planning my second visit to Lyn-Way Restaurant in Ashland, Ohio before I’d left the restaurant on my first visit. Was it because the food was that good? Or the service was great? The food was good and we did receive fabulous service, but that wasn’t the sole reason for our return. Want to know what drew us back? The pie. Yep. And if you read my previous review, you’ll know that my husband and I didn’t even taste the pie on that visit.
So why would we return to the restaurant for pie if we hadn’t even tried it the first time we were there? That’s easy. Lyn-Way Restaurant is KNOWN in these parts for their delicious homemade pies. I simply did not feel that I had provided a fair review since I’d not sampled one of the 25 pies on the menu (that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it). Lyn-Way got its start with a slice of pie and cup of coffee, how could I not eat a slice?
My husband and I drove back to Ashland with the intent to finally try a piece of pie. But we made a few other stops after leaving our house and by the time we arrived at the restaurant, we had developed an appetite. On our first visit we’d purchased appetizers and burgers, this trip we decided to try a meal. My husband ordered a steak while to my husband’s horror, I opted for Liver & Onions. It’s one of my favorite meals but my family hates it so I never cook liver at home.
Once again, we received prompt and friendly service. Our waitress was attentive without hovering over us. To my husband’s delight, we never once had to ask for soda or water refills. My husband enjoyed his steak, French fries and green beans while my baked potato, corn and liver and onions hit the spot. Everything was so good, but it wasn’t until after we’d finished our meal that we realized we’d made a mistake. We’d eaten enough that we were no longer hungry. We were not going to leave again without tasting a pie, any pie, so we decided to share a cherry pie a la mode. Personally, I could have done without the ice cream but my husband has a sweet tooth that demands sugar and lots of it.
Our pie was delivered to our table warmed to perfection within minutes. I was apprehensive. What if the pie didn’t live up to its reputation? With a sigh, I lifted my fork to my mouth and took a bite of homemade cherry pie with a perfectly flaky crust. For a moment, I forgot that I was still seated in the booth of the restaurant. If I’d closed my eyes I almost could pretend that I was sitting in my grandma’s kitchen.
Thanks for the reminder of what that felt like Lyn-Way. I’ll be back.
