There's nothing like a long lunch. lleechef and I decided to take one today, and it took a grand total of six and a half hours. We left home at 11 a.m. and drove the 124 miles to the Jolly Roger in Port Clinton, Ohio. She had a walleye sandwich, I had a perch sandwich and we split an order of onion rings. We also had iced tea.
A visit after eating to the Marblehead lighthouse was delightful, and before leaving the area we made a quick stop at Cheesehaven to pick up a piece of 9 year old cheddar and a piece of 10 year old cheddar -- oh, and some trail bologna. And there was also a quick stop on the way home at Carle's in Bucyrus for a couple of pounds of their wonderful bratwurst for a future meal.
Several Roadfooders, including Buffetbuster and Sundancer, have visited the Jolly Roger. Their perch and walleye offerings are wonderful, and I think their onion rings are great. But, anyone considering a visit should do it quickly because they'll close November 25th and won't reopen till the middle of February.
Edited to fix my dumb mistake about the ages of the cheeses.
