COSHOCTON – Sorrell’s on the Square held its official ribbon cutting and grand opening on Oct. 17.

“We are super excited for Katie and Gary’s investment in downtown and wish them much success,” said Amy Stockdale, director of the Coshocton County Chamber of Commerce.

The new restaurant is owned by Gary and Katie Sorrell who were presented with gifts from their staff before using the chamber’s traditional giant scissors to cut the ribbon.

“We want to especially thank our staff,” Katie said. “We have been really blessed with a good staff. We have some really awesome people here.”

Staff members presented the Sorrells with a painting and a gift certificate for a one night stay at the Coshocton Village Inn & Suites. They also gave them a card that said “WOW.”

“That’s what we provide people – a wow experience,” Gary said. “We are excited to be here and really appreciate everyone’s support.”

Sorrell’s on the Square is located at 119 N. Third St. Guests at the grand opening were treated to samples of several menu items including their New York Style Cheesecake. The full menu also was unveiled.

The restaurant’s hours are: 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays; 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays; 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Sundays; and closed on Mondays.

“The way you have the restaurant decorated is an asset to our community and your food is terrific,” said Mayor Steve Mercer. “There was a need to have a restaurant like yours here and I say thank for the work you’ve done.”
