Hinkley’s Restaurant Opens in Marysville
Union County is one with several beautiful, historically-ripe buildings. In Marysville alone, one can find any number whose architecture still remains captivating today. Of those, the one at 318 East Fifth Street stands as an ideal spot to eat, drink, and be mesmerized.
It’s known as the Henderson House, and it’s the newest site of Hinkley’s Restaurant, an eatery that promises to recast southern food with a distinct Ohio twist. It was started by Bruce Daniels whose desire has been to not only celebrate the history of the building, but Union County itself.
“We’ve created a restaurant that combines urban flavor with rural hospitality,” shares Daniels. “This unique space takes customers on a journey through the numerous unique art installations that span across the walls that honor the history of Union County, Marysville, and the house itself.”
Along with business partner and General Manager, Biff Eschenbrenner, Daniels hired Chefs Nathan Endres and Aaron Fischer, both with strong ties to the community, to head up the kitchen and create a menu that relies heavily on Union County produce.
Diners can expect southern staples like Shrimp & Grits and Cornmeal Crusted Perch, but also reinterpretations of those same ideas, like with the Fried Green Tomato Wedges, Sweet Corn Chowder, Fried Chicken & Waffle Sliders, and the Black-Eyed Pea & Wild Rice Cake.
Hinkley’s also serves Ancho Chili Rubbed Short Ribs, a Wild Boar Rack, Oysters on the Half Shell, Deviled Eggs, and, of course, Peach Cobbler to round out their offerings. All dishes there cost anywhere from $3.50-$29, making Hinkley’s an affordable dinner option.
The restaurant, which was once the site of Doc Henderson’s, also carries a full bar and drink menu that includes craft beers, signature cocktails and a variety of wines.
Hinkley’s Restaurant is open Tuesday-Thursday, 4pm – 10pm, Friday- Saturday, 4pm – 11pm, and is closed on Sunday-Monday. Stop in to roam the halls, relax at the bar, and have a curiously unique experience only Marysville can offer.
