Friendly and fun. Great food and fun people. Must go and take a friend or 2. The sweet potato fries are the bomb.

While traveling back from Columbus we decided to do a search on Trip Advisor for somewhere to eat. We ruled out the typical chain places and came upon this listing. The past reviews were great, and I am happy they were true. We got there late afternoon around 3pm. Place was pretty quiet. Rebecca greeted and seated us with a... More

The owners are pretty much always on site or at least every time I have been there. The food is amazing and the bartenders are a blast. We go there every year when we are in town on business and after we leave we can not wait to come back! The crawfish tails and smoked prime rib are two of... More

Looking for a casual spot with great food, great views and great service? Look no further than Muddy Misers. Plenty of beer and the menu is quite extensive. Everything we ate was great. Be sure to order dessert - almost all desserts are home made - the carrot cale was incredible. Service could not be any better and the staff... More

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. But with a view and ambience like that, who was counting time? We ordered Buffalo nachos and a couple beers and watched the... More

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.
