Fridays during Lenten season may mean no meat, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a great meal at one of Hancock County’s many restaurants! We strongly recommend calling the restaurant of your choice ahead of time for reservations.
Sit Down and Enjoy
Cedar Valley Cafe
1132 Tiffin Ave., Findlay
Cedar Valley Cafe specializes in Lebanese and Mediterranean cuisine but we LOVE their salads. They’re large, filling, and nearly all of them are Lenten-friendly. They also have a great variety of vegetarian options, many Lenten-friendly appetizers (they have amazing hommous!), and it is great for the whole family. CedarValleyCafe.com
GER Mongolian Grill
1123 Trenton Ave., Findlay
Build your own Lenten friendly meal at GER Mongolian Grill! They have several seafood protein options, as well as tofu and other vegetarian protein options. Pile on the veggies and toppings, pick a sauce and spices, and take it to the cook to grill it up alongside rice and noodles right in front of you! GERMongolianGrill.com
Oler’s Bar & Grill
708 Lima Ave., Findlay
Oler’s is the best-known secret in Findlay and for good reason, their food is great and margaritas are even better! When looking for a Lenten meal, try their fish tacos or a cheese quesadilla! Something you wouldn’t expect to enjoy at a Tex-Mex restaurant is a fish sandwich, but you should definitely trust us and try it! OlersBarAndGrill.com
Fins Seafood & Grille
1801 Broad Ave., Findlay
Seafood is Fins specialty (they actually just made this list of best seafood restaurants in Ohio!) which makes it a perfect spot for dinner on Fridays. Whether you are looking for lobster, crab, scallops, oysters, or fish, Fins has it and plenty of other options. Plus, if you’re looking for a great spot for brunch after church, Fins has a fantastic brunch buffet from 10 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. on Sundays! FinsSeafoodAndGrille.com
Logan’s Irish Pub
414 S. Main St., Findlay
Is there anything better than a traditional fish and chips? Get it at Logan’s Irish Pub and you won’t be disappointed! Fish and chips is just one of the many Lenten friendly meal options on the menu, and nearly all the appetizer options are also great for Lent! LogansIrishPubFindlay.com
300 Buffalo St., Vanlue
510 S Blanchard St.
Bread Kneads’ claim to fame is their butterflake rolls, and with good reason! But their salads are second to none, choose one that is ready for pick up or build your own at the salad bar, which hosts many organic options! Facebook.com
The Baker’s Café
105 E. Sandusky St.
We Serve. Coffee.
114 E. Sandusky St., Findlay
Looking for a great lunch option during Lent? Look no further than We Serve. Coffee. We Serve. has some great salads, but their veggie paninis are unique, tasty, and filling. Plus, 100% of profits go to both local and global needs. WeServeCoffee.org
Need dinner and need it fast? Head to the drive-thru at Culver’s, they offer both cod and walleye served as a sandwich or basket. No matter what you choose you have to try their frozen custard! Culvers.com
If seafood and isn’t your thing, try one of the many restaurants that have great vegetarian options as well! From Japan West to Uncorked Wine Bar there is something for everyone’s tastes!
