olde-dutch-hocking-cvbThe Olde Dutch Restaurant and Banquet Haus sits at the edge of a stand of stately oaks that Logan natives have called Rempel’s Grove for over 100 years.  In the 1840’s, the site was used as a community picnic ground. It was easily accessible from downtown Logan by canal boat for a 15 cent fare.  After the Civil War, local war hero and capitalist Col. Ferdinand Rempel, the City of Logan, and the Hocking Valley Railroad, hosted a reunion for over 1,000 Union veterans at this location, with then Governor (and later President) William McKinley in attendance.  Today the Olde Dutch Restaurant and Banquet Haus continues the tradition of a great place for family dining, featuring full menu, delectable buffet and decadent desserts.  The Olde Dutch is the perfect spot to refuel after a canoe trip down the Hocking, a round of Adventure Golf or antique and craft shopping – all at Remple’s Grove.
