Great fish and chips, cold beer and a fun atmosphere round out the experience at Muddy Misers in Z'ville. Good value for the price and specials everyday give you plenty of dining options.

Long wait to be seated but excellent food.. A little pricey on some things but well worth it. We had the Ahi appetizer and the Halibut special... We enjoyed it and will definitely be back again.

We stopped here on a very warm February night. We sat on the patio with the glow of the fence line lights over looking the river. It was very packed and the service staff was stretched thin.

The menu here is always changing and we love discovering new and interesting items. Great location just across the river from downtown. Service is great and the staff seems to be having a great time.

They offer a unique menu. It's great to go in the summer and sit on the patio by the river. The wine list is ok. Service is good. A nice place to go and have a good meal with friends.

Went here before a Bret Michaels concert. Atmosphere was good. Simple local place. Beer wine menu ok. Had the wings and shrimp for dinner. Average food. Prices were in line. Overall nothing special.

We stopped here on the way to Ohio from NJ and saw it was highly recommended in the AAA guide and gave it a try. While there were no cars in the parking lot, we were warmly greeted and sat down to a wonderful meal. The dining room was dark and filled with a variety of stuffed animals including a... More
