What a great place to stop by and have a drink or two at the end of the day. I was here during the COVID-19 pandemic but by August they had both indoor and outdoor seating available.
There's lots of seating and a cool old-fashioned London Telephone both outside too. The Moscow Mule was a classic that everyone loves.
Colleen was our server, and she was a true breath of fresh air. We split an order of meatballs to start, and three of us ordered the Lobster Special for our entrées, which was a lobster tail sitting atop the shell over truffle risotto.
Our other party member ordered the Chicken Parmigiana, and the cool thing... 46 reviews I was in the middle of a Saturday morning door dash when I decided to give The Juice Pod a try.

400 reviews Fresh, healthy and fast, Poke 22 has very quickly moved to the front of our COVID-19-era dining rotation. The Poke 22 team are friendly, accommodating and always ready on-time.
I would suggest placing your order online for fastest service. Although the always lovely Ms. G. was new to poke (a/k/a “Hawaiian sushi”), I had enjoyed it in a few business trips to California.
Poke 22 is every bit as fresh and well-made as its California cousins, while offering more options than I had previously experienced. Poke bowls come in three basic sizes; each is generous.
Held at the Wedgwood Country Club in WashingtonTownship, the award ceremony brought together small business owners, local officials and the chamber to award proclamations to the winners of the contest, run by the WashingtonTownship Times and the chamber. Readers of the Times submitted hundreds of ballots to cast their votes for the best categories of businesses, including medical offices, restaurants, home services, and more.
He said he’s always eager to get involved and contribute to local groups and events, and is glad those connections have made an impression. Wallace praised the board's chairman Nick App ice for the board’s efforts to rejuvenate the Old Stone House Village, packing its schedule full of new events and establishing it as a destination for township history once again.
App ice said he was shocked to hear of the award, but is thrilled people are enjoying their hard work revamping the Old Stone House Village. Our community lost an incredible leader this year in the passing of former Township Trustee Joyce Young.
It is bounded on the west and north by Union and Delaware Counties, on the east by the line of the Scott River and on the south by Brown and Norwich Townships. Until the sentiment for good roads changed its character it was through most of the township rather rough, the surface being cut up by gullies running to the river, but it had a foundation of limestone and was seldom muddy.
Bluffs and hills of considerable sight border the streams which run through the township to empty into the Scott, principal of which is Indian Big Run, and the scenic effects of these diversities of surface give the district an attractive appearance, besides offering the more utilitarian advantage of specially good facilities for orchard cultivation. At the southeastern corner of the township is one of the most picturesque spots in Ohio, Hayden Falls, about ten miles northwest of Columbus.
The rock formation is of limestone, and Hayden Run, about 100 rods west of its outlet into the Scott, has worn through the stone and formed a cataract which has a perpendicular fall of sixty feet. As the spot is easy of access from the city, lying between the Scott River and the Dublin Pike, Hayden Falls is a popular place of resort for picnickers.
General William Henry Harrison entertained the opinion that the party which executed the old chief went directly from Tippecanoe to the banks of the Scott, where the tragedy occurred. The execution was witnessed by some white men, who tried to intervene to save the old man's life, but, as Leather lips himself seemed to accept the situation and made no objections to the carrying out of the sentence, their efforts were unavailing.
In memory of this friend of the white race the Wyandotte Club, a social organization of Columbus, some years ago arranged for the erection of a monument at the scene of the execution. The village of Dublin, which at the census of 1930 had a population of 224, was settled very soon after Franklin ton, among the first inhabitants being Ludwig Sells and his four sons from Pennsylvania, George Era, Alexander Bassett, Augustus Miller, James Hey, John Wyandot, James Lesson, Jacob King and Jacob Ladle.
The town itself was laid out by John Shields, a gentleman of Irish extraction, who gave it the name of his native city and was the founder of a family prominent in Franklin County. He found no takers when he offered to bet another barrel of salt that he could fall into the river, remain there a certain time without effort to save himself and then come out alive.
A large body of Indians made a habit of camping on his land, but, as they were friendly to the white and many of them, under the noted warrior, Captain Turtle, enlisted under General Harrison for the War of 1812, they were permitted to remain in peace While, isolated from the centers of traffic, trade and manufacture never flourished to a great degree in Washington, there were early and at the time successful efforts to establish small manufacturing concerns. The postoffice at Dublin had been established for twelve years when John Swain bought a mill site on the Scott River.
The latter also was a bee hunter of note, being able to “line” a wild honeybee to its hive in some hollow tree and always having on hand a stock of honey for sale at the larger settlements. The country was covered with a forest of oak, beech, maple, hickory, walnut, ash, elm and other trees of less value, and the Shout mill was kept busy turning out lumber that was floated down the river to Franklin ton and later to Columbus.
In the spring of 1821 John Sells started for New Orleans from Dublin in a flat-bottomed boat loaded with 500 barrels of flour and great quantities of bacon. In fact, they saw a great deal of them, as the Indians passed frequently along the old Upper Sandusky trail, now the Dublin Pike, and traded extensively with the whites.
The beautiful cemetery just west of Dublin contains monuments on which are calved names of men and women prominent in the life of the county.
