The Golden Lamb: Ohio's oldest restaurant

When it's time to try out a new restaurant, we're used to reading Yelp and Facebook reviews, but the longevity of a place says something too. Delish rounded up the oldest restaurant in each state — and some of these eateries have been open for centuries, including Ohio's.

Just north of Cincinnati is Lebanon, home to the oldest continuously operating hotel and restaurant in the state, The Golden Lamb. Open since 1803, it's seen its fair share of famous folks, including 12 U.S. presidents and author and abolitionist Harriet Beecher Stowe.

Located in the heart of downtown Lebanon, The Golden Lamb's signature fried chicken has stood the test of time and is a favorite among locals and visitors alike. Plus, it's rumored that the hotel is haunted by at least three ghosts.
