Catch Of The Month (April) - Indulgence Cafe

by Sherrie Toth

As  a young girl, Patricia George was taught to bake. Although she spent many years as a server, she would bake for friends and family on the side.  But owning her own business was always a strong desire.


With some faith and prayer, she and her husband Daniel found an empty spot-- the perfect place to put their dreams into action.  “We knew this was the place,” Patricia said. And what the community knows as Indulgence Cafe was born.


“Indulgence Cafe is a place for people to be happy, to be together, and to enjoy all the good things we have to offer. Whatever I feel like baking for the day, that’s what I do,” Said Patricia.  “I don’t have the same routine; it’s always changing.”


We have stopped in several times and let me tell you, they certainly do have a lot to offer. I personally tried the peach muffin. I thought I had died and gone to heaven. It had the look of a muffin but it had the texture of the best and most moist cake you have ever had! The outside was crystallized sweet goodness! Whatever your desire is, you’ll likely be more than fulfilled. Indulgence serves anything from a simple cupcake to gorgeous cinnamon rolls.  You can also enjoy a scoop or two of the amazing and local Velvet Ice Cream, a cold beverage like a frappe or a traditional cup of fresh coffee. My favorite is the Mocha Latte with just a touch of mocha. Yes, they serve it up your way!

Currently, Indulgence is looking to get local artists to display their artwork and greeting cards.  Comfy seating is also on the list! If you’re looking for something to do on a Saturday, the cafe also hosts open mic nights where customers can listen to the sounds of the locals while sipping on coffee or enjoying whatever Patricia has baked for the day. For more details about events and pictures of their stunningly beautiful offerings, visit their Facebook page here

One of the George’s favorite things about owning their own bakery is seeing the smiles of customers who enjoy their baked goods.  The couple is personable to each guest who comes in. “We love Apple Valley,” they said.  “We couldn’t be happier.” The George’s put their heart into everything. Joe, myself and many others can attest to that!! Stop in and give it a try! You wont be sorry one bit!

You can find Indulgence Cafe in the same plaza we are located in. They are just outside of Apple Valley lake in the white plaza.

Catch of the Month (March) - The Bad Apple Pub

by Sherrie Toth

    The Bad Apple Pub

There is nothing more inviting or reassuring of repeat business than an establishment that serves killer food and treats its customers like family.  Our March Local Catch, The Bad Apple Pub does exactly that and it does so consistently.

Steve and Niki McCurdy saw the Apple Valley area as an opportunity.  They saw potential and a place where their years of experience could flourish.  After jumping on the opportunity to come to this area, They took over the current location at 22001 Coshocton Rd in April of 2013, remodeled it and opened on July 9th, 2013.

The McCurdys have done just about every job imaginable in the restaurant industry; it’s basically all they’ve ever done-- and it shows because they do it well. But at the end of the day, getting to know all the different people they meet everyday is their favorite thing about their job. “The one thing we love more than any other is the relationships we develop with our crew and guests.  We have made lifelong friendships with the people who have worked with us and people we have served over the years. There’s nothing like watching some of our favorite people’s families grow.”

Apart from their “you’re like family” service, the McCurdy’s have what they call their “calling cards”-- items that sets their business apart from other bars/restaurants in the area.  One of those calling cards is their half pound specialty burgers which is crafted using locally purchased beef from Lanning’s Food and is one of nine of their burgers that all have unique, impressive flavor profiles. Yum!  Their second “calling card” is their wide variety of entertainment.  Whether it’s a band playing in the summer outside on their patio, a wine and painting night, pool leagues, dart leagues, The 4th of July Cruise-in or one of their hosted fundraisers, there is something that most will enjoy.  And finally, their amazing crew would be their third “calling card.”  “Our crew is an awesome group of people who ARE our family.  They are what we’re best known for.”

From the food to the service, the Bad Apple Pub is part of what makes Apple Valley so special and centered around bringing people together.  Even their logo was designed by local artists, Mo and Kelly Dallas who approached the McCurdys with the idea after they heard they were looking to open at their current location.  So if you haven’t already, stop in and grab a drink a craft beer and one of their burgers and become part of the family!  


Stop by or give them call for take out!  740-392-3326! Their address is 22001 Coshocton Road Howard, Ohio 43028!  Located easily by GPS!

Catch of the Month (Feb) - Howard Hilton

by Sherrie Toth


Howard Hilton


If you’re looking for a fun place to relax and enjoy the best burger around on a  pretzel bun, some delicious fries, or a beer, look no further than Joe and Sherrie's February local Catch Of The Month, the Howard Hilton. " The Hilton" is located at 23379 Coshocton Rd. I'm telling you, this little hidden gem will surely exceed your expectations. Its only a mile or so just east of Apple Valley Lake.

Back in 2010, Larry and Chris Wolford received an offer to lease “Hut’s Place” -- an offer they could not pass up.  Up until that point, Larry had always wanted to own a bar/restaurant, so when this opportunity came, he jumped on it. Life took a few twists and turns and what started as a leasing opportunity with partners ended up as a chance to purchase the place outright and with that came the new name the “Howard Hilton.”  As of August 2017, Larry has been the sole owner and he and his wife are enjoying serving up food and drinks to the regulars and those who are just passing through.


People can easily find the Howard Hilton, but they find it hard to leave.  And one contributing factor to that is the fact customers find it a comfortable place with a great atmosphere.  The bar is “nothing fancy,” according to the owners but people just love the place, the warm friendly people and the amazing food.  When asked what their secret is, Chris said, “Respect,”  Oh, and awesome burgers!  Speaking of “awesome burgers,” they are always fresh and never frozen.  Pair that with some of their fresh-cut fries and you would have to force us to leave too!  Other popular items on the menu include the Cod, fried bologna served on the famous Pretzel Bun and the “Fish Bowl” drinks.  The owners truly do take pride in their food and drinks.  But food and drinks is not the only thing that sets the Howard Hilton apart.  Customers also have the opportunity to participate in the ever popular “Queen of Hearts” drawing (which reached $173,000 last August) and an annual Spring Golf outing the third Sunday in July.


Apart from the amazing menu, Chris and Larry added a T-Bar, High Top Tables, two concrete patios and seven flat screen TVs-- all to ensure the customers “enjoy their time at the Howard Hilton.”  Admittedly, the couple says their favorite service to provide their customers is simply “making sure they are happy.”  


Joe and I just personally can’t say enough about this place. The service is always on point and the food always exceeds our expectations. We love to belly up to the bar and enjoy Taco Tuesdays and other evenings that we slip in for some great conversation, perfect service and the BEST burgers in town. Larry and Chris will go out of their way to say hello and check on us as well as their other guests. The staff is talented at what they do, fun and take good care of their patrons.

** Don't forget to seek out Marie and ask her what her tap of the month is or what it's going to be next!

Tiny Homes VIA Amazon!

by Sherrie Toth
We are always amazed at all the things you can buy on Amazon. However, we wouldn’t have thought to look for a house on there...

Apparently, we were wrong. They have “houses”, too!

If this looks a little like a shipping container with windows, that’s because it is a shipping container with windows. Which makes us wonder what they ship it in - Shipping costs approximately $3,800 doubt any of their brown boxes are big enough to hold this!
For $36,000, this fully furnished 320-square-foot home can be yours. And while you’re at it, you might want to add some paper towels and toilet paper to your cart so you can move right in when it arrives.

 If there’s anything real-estate related we can help you with this year, please don’t hesitate to ask!
