The Eastland Inn, 33 Eastland Road, is a favorite dining spot for many of us in Berea and environs.


A friend from town who dines there frequently told me he finds the inn to be a cozy placeThe Eastland Inn is built in the 1930's and is a Berea Ohio Landmark, providing lunch and dinner to the surrounding communities that serves comfort food home style and commented that its cabin-like atmosphere puts him in mind of a place more likely to be found in Adirondack mountain resort areas of upstate New York.


The inn, which sits among trees and adjacent to the lushness of the nearby Metroparks, at the juncture of Eastland Road and Adams Street, reopened for business this week after a short shutdown for some interior and exterior renovation and repairs.


Owners Dave and Liz Peterkoski said members of the community pitched in to help restaurant staff paint, replace restroom floors and fixtures and reupholster dining room chairs.


The exterior of the 78-year-old inn got a fresh look with the installation of new siding of a color Liz describes as “Irish thistle.”


The menu’s been revamped, too, with additions including stuffed duck and eggplant roulette.

Dave and Elizabeth Peterkoski have owned and operated The Eastland Inn Restaurant & Bar in Berea for the last dozen years or so, but growing up in Berea, Dave says he’s heard all sorts of rumors regarding the inn’s early years. According to one of those rumors, the inn got its start as a speakeasy, before moving to its present location after Prohibition ended.

Whatever its past, it’s likely that the inn served as a well-liked community gathering space, if its present casual cheeriness is any indication. Maybe it’s because the inn is located in a college town (Berea is home to Baldwin-Wallace College), but it seems to attract a nicely mixed clientele that makes it welcoming to all. Everyone from professors and BW college students, to retirees, to families with small children, to high school kids seems to enjoy the Tuesday burger special (buy one, get one for $1.50).

The Peterkoskis actively nurture this variety of customers, making the cozy inn feel more like a family-friendly, old-style British pub or European cafe', rather than a mere watering hole. Of his variety of customers, Dave says, “They all seem to mesh really well.”

Dave and his wife, who grew up in North Olmsted, met on a blind date. In a whirlwind romance, they married a year later and bought The Eastland Inn Restaurant & Bar just two weeks after that.

Elizabeth keeps busy doing the scheduling and the books for the inn, as well as holding down a separate “day job.” Dave, who attended culinary school in Rhode Island, does much of the cooking for the restaurant, including all of the soups. He counts clam chowder, chili, cream of mushroom, and Italian wedding soup among his specialties.

In addition to its friendly service, The Eastland Inn Restaurant and Bar appeals to customers with its budget-friendly daily specials.

The Eastland Inn Restaurant & Bar serves one of the best Lake Erie Perch Dinners in Northeast Ohio - Perch Fry is what's for dinner

On a recent Wednesday night visit, featured specials included crab legs ($14.95) and tender strip steak ($8.95). The generous portion of perfectly steamed Alaskan king crab legs arrived cleverly presented in a metal bucket, with a special tool for making short work of the shells. Skin-on French fries sprinkled with malt vinegar made a delicious accompaniment, as did some of Dave’s thick and creamy beer-cheese soup (although a tad salty). Washed down with a smooth Rolling Rock beer, it made for a most pleasant, all-American supper.

The inns’ excellent fish fries ($12.95), made with fresh Lake Erie perch, are another customer favorite. Dave wants everyone to know that they’re available every day for lunch or dinner, not just on Fridays or during Lent. Seafood lovers can also look forward to a month-long lobster event beginning in mid-June.

In addition to super specials, The Eastland Inn Restaurant & Bar offers a great variety of chicken, veal, and pasta dishes, such as a sweet Cincinnati chili ($8.95), as well as salads, sandwiches and lighter fare, such as its New Orleans-inspired muffaletta on focaccia ($6.95).

Looking for just a bite to go with a drink? Try Dave’s “Dirty Nachos” ($6.95), featuring a tasty combination of artichokes, spinach, melted cheeses, tomato, scallions, and black olives topping a mound of crunchy pita chips.

The Eastland Inn Restaurant & Bar is at 33 Eastland Road in Berea. The inn is open from 11 a.m. until 2:30 a.m. daily. Call (440) 234-7260
