North Ridgeville – As part of our effort to spotlight locally owned, independent businesses throughout Lorain County – we take you today into the walls of Al & Don’s Lone Tree Tavern on Lorain Road in North Ridgeville.

Lone Tree has been serving fine foods & spirits on Lorain Road, just south of the Ohio Turnpike, for more than a year. With their separate dining room, full bar and outside patio area – including two heated gazebos, this location is right for any occasion. If you are looking for a nice steak dinner, a drink at the bar or a comfortable place to relax with friends – Lone Tree has what you are looking for.

A group of TMC NEWS Gold Card Members, along with one of our two Platinum Card Members, checked out Lone Tree a week ago for lunch. One of our Gold Card Members is currently on the Atkins Diet and enjoyed his cheeseburger (minus the bun) and salad. Another had the Delmonico steak – he said he was pleasantly surprised about how well it was cooked and how juicy it was – “no A-1 sauce needed for this steak” he said. Another enjoyed a turkey wrap with a side curly fries. I had the bar-b-q chicken breast dinner with a side of mashed potatoes and peas. The generous portion of chicken provided by Lone Tree I left with a doggie bag and had enough for dinner at work later that night.

With the large portions you receive at Lone Tree, none of us had room for desert.

I would recommend the chicken for sure – but next time I will be going for that Delmonico steak.

One other thing that a couple of us find very important when ordering a hot dish – the food arrives HOT. In this case they all did – always a nice touch. Thanks to the Kitchen.
With summer upon us the patio is sure to be a huge hit for people who want to just sit back, relax and enjoy dinner, drinks and the company of friends. You can also call ahead if you have a special party and reserve one of the two gazebos.
