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
Fins Seafood & Grille
1801 Broad Ave., Findlay
Seafood is Fins specialty (they actually 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
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
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
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
The Baker’s Café
105 E. Sandusky St.
If you have a sweet tooth and need a Lenten friendly lunch, head to The Bakers Café. They have great sweet treats, but also fantastic salads, soup, and quiche – make sure to catch them before they close temporarily to move to a larger location on Main Street on March 13th! TheBakersCafeFindlay.com
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
