Garrettsville - Garrett’s Mill and Brewing Company is open under a new name and new ownership, featuring an executive chef dedicated to offering “affordable upscale dining with a twist.” Garrettsville’s founding structure at 8148 Main Street — established by Colonel John Garrett in 1804 to grind farmers’ grain — once again has opened its doors, offering a dining room with a view of rushing Silver Creek.
Executive Chef Jeremy ‘Jay’ Barnes has created a broad-based menu of modern takes on classic American lunch and dinner favorites, ranging from creative hamburger combos to fine dining surf & turf selections. Barnes enjoys creating decadent desserts and pastries, too, from crème brûlée to cheesecakes. (With his eye on re-opening the ice cream shop downstairs, he also is experienced in making homemade ice creams, gelatos and sorbets.) Focused on generous portions at the restaurant, Barnes says, “I don’t want anyone to leave here hungry!”
