Newark on 21st Street

In compliance with Gov. Mike DeWine’s mandate closing dine-in restaurants across the state of Ohio beginning close of business Sunday, March 15th, our dining rooms will be closed until the order is lifted. In the meantime, our drive-thru and carry out services will be open so that we can continue to serve our communities.
