John Larson gives people a place to eat and be entertained

| February 18, 2013

COSHOCTON – John Larson is giving people a reason to stay in town for good food and entertainment.

“I’ve been here four years and have realized that people are looking for other activities than just going out and dining,” said Larson, who runs the Warehouse Steak n’ Stein in Roscoe Village. “They want entertainment or a great dining experience that includes music and food.”

This winter the Warehouse offered its patrons Winterfest, which was a romantic package for two, comedy clubs and Sleuth Mystery Dinner Theaters.

“Comedy clubs are big in cities and a great outing with family and friends and we added the mystery dinners because there isn’t as much for people to do in the winter,” Larson said. “We also have music Saturdays in the Lock.”

The summer time features fun on the Warehouse’s patio and this year the restaurant also has joined forces with the Riders 4 Relief event to host the National Onion Ring-Eating Championship.

Larson also is working hard to bring Thomas’ Steak House back to life.

He closed the restaurant after Valentine’s Day for remodeling and will reopen Tuesday, March 12, as Oscar Rose Steak and Seafood House.

“It will be a culture shock for some, but the changes will be good,” Larson said.

He also plans to honor restaurants of the past by dedicating a spot at Oscar Rose Steak and Seafood House to display memorabilia from restaurants that have come and gone in Coshocton.

“We are starting to get people giving us information and menus,” Larson said.

If you have any information or items you may wish to share, call Larson or Angie Pyle at 622-7112 or e-mail [email protected] or [email protected].

The restaurant also will feature some of the favorites from Thomas’ menu and new surprises.

“We will have nice seafood dishes and continue to have good steaks,” Larson said.

Dinners also will occasionally have the opportunity to enjoy light acoustic guitar and piano music.

“I like the history of this restaurant and knowing that it was family owned,” Larson said. “It was an icon in Coshocton and the place to be and I want to bring energy and excitement back to it.”
