The Boathouse Tavern to offer great views and dining experience

| August 16, 2021
Sharon and Dave Tatro are combining their interests to offer people a new place to enjoy a meal out with a great view at The Boathouse Tavern.
“I love to cook,” Sharon Tatro said. “It’s been on my bucket list to own a restaurant. I thought about more of a small barn and grill, but then this opportunity came up. Dave is a big fisherman and loves the water, so we wanted to offer something unique to Coshocton.”
The Boathouse Tavern sits on the river’s edge, and the couple has worked hard to take advantage of their location at 51 Pine St. in Coshocton.
“We cleaned up the river view and where the tie-ups were so people kayaking or boating can stop,” Tatro said. “There will be outdoor entertainment and the deck and picnic tables to eat at.”
It will be casual dining but a little upscale.
“We will be family-friendly though,” Tatro said. “We looked at a lot of places to figure out what we liked.”
Their 17-year-old son Cole likes to cook and helped develop some of the menu items.
“We will have a couple of signature dishes,” Tatro said. “One will be the Boathouse Salad. I created it, and my son helped me tweak it.”
Another feature of the restaurant will be its event center. The downstairs room will accommodate 200-225 people for special gatherings such as reunions and receptions. However, an outside caterer will need to be used.
The Tatros are planning to be opened by mid to late September.
“Everyone has been so helpful with us,” Tatro said. “We are learning as we go.”
They are planning to have the restaurant open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. for lunch and dinner seven days a week. Hours may be extended when they have special entertainment.
Sharon and Dave Tatro plan to employ between 30-35 people. Applications can be picked up at the restaurant’s front door anytime during the day and returned to the mailbox. Follow The Boathouse Tavern Coshocton Facebook for more updates.
“Sharon is great with people,” Dave Tatro said. “She gets along with people and does her homework.”
