(WJET/WFXP) – A local restaurant is set to gain national recognition.

Hitchy’s Tavern & Grille in Crawford County will receive a visit from America’s Best Restaurants (ABR) later this month.


Engaged Emily Joliet and Jeremy Hitchcock opened their family-friendly sports bar in 2018 with special events, live music, and food and drink specials.

ABR’s focus is on local and independent restaurants and the company will host its roadshow on Wednesday, July 24 at Hitchy’s Tavern & Grille.

The visit will include extensive on-air interviews with Joliet and Hitchcock; the episode will be broadcast extensively on social media at a later date.

“After years of remodeling and redesign, we have one of the nicest and busiest restaurants around,” said Jeremy Hitchcock, co-owner of Hitchy’s Tavern & Grille.

The menu includes the homemade hand-breaded cheese platter as an appetizer, the bourbon bacon burger and the fish dinner on Friday night.

“There are people who come from far away to come to the fish fry. Without a reservation, it’s very difficult to get a seat on Friday,” Hitchcock said.
