Our 29th Anniversary
Last night we celebrated our 29th anniversary at Don’s Pomeroy House (a mansion turned into a restaurant) in Strongsville, Ohio. I surprised my husband with this trip out of town and it turned out to be the best food either of us had ever tasted from a restaurant. I ordered a lobster tail, scallops, crab dip, crab salad, lobster mashed potatoes and more. Do you see a pattern? By the time my main meal arrived I barely touched it and had to take it home because I was so full.
When I called for a reservation I told them I wanted a somewhat more private table because it was our anniversary. We were waiting for our check when the waiter surprised us with a gigantic dinner plate size éclair and said Happy Anniversary! We both took a bite and had them box it up to take home too. It was the best tasting éclair we had ever tasted!
Although Don’s Pomeroy is pricey, every bite was worth it and the service was amazing. We used our knife to butter our bread and the waiter brought us a clean knife for our meal. He was professional, knew the food well, not annoying by bothering us too much and cute too!
We sat at the booth to the far left because I asked for a more private table. There were only a couple of booths.
Our crab appetizer with fried pita bread. We could have made a meal out of this!
Delicious warm, fresh, homemade bread and butter.
My husbands Pomeroy House Salad.
My Caesar’s Crab Salad with a crisp parmesan basket.
We both opted for the New Bedford Scallops served with lobster mashed potatoes and a lobster bisque sauce. The scallops were pan seared and fabulous! I added a lobster tail to my meal.
This is Matt, our wonderful waiter! I told you he is cute.
I took a trip to the restroom which was downstairs.
Talk about a fancy restroom!
Also downstairs is the pub. Here they serve bar like food but you can also order off the same menu we did. It was packed by the time we left. In the summer they even serve at an outside patio. This place accommodates everyone.
If you are ever in this area and want to eat at a 5 star restaurant, this is it! We will be making this our special occasion spot from now on!

huge congrats to both of you, and what an amazing place to celebrate
Thank you Beth it was a wonderful time!
The restaurant looks beautiful and I love scallops. Never tried lobster. We don’t really have much in the way of small harbours in the UK any more, but that whole north coast of France is full of ’em. Happy Anniversary!
Thank you! If you ever get the chance to try lobster do, it is amazing!
Happy anniversary! Sounds like a magical evening!
It truly was Angela. We rarely go out but when we do it’s for a special occasion. Thank you!
WOW!!!!! Happy 29th Anniversary!!!
That place looks amazing! Everything about it totally reminds me of eating and the prices of the restaurants we went to in New Orleans! And… yes, I am always full before the real meal gets to the table!
Looks like an incredibly awesome waiter!
He was wonderful (and cute). Thanks so much Lydia!
Happy Anniversary Diane!! Everything looks amazing and thanks so much for sharing a beautiful experience!!🍁💙

The food was unbelievable! Thank you!
Awwwwn happy anniversary to you both. Wishing you guys more years together in happiness and love
Thank you so very much!!!!❤️
You are welcome
WOW !!! Just WOW!!! Congrats on the anniversary. We are coming up on 32 in a couple of months, but we got a late start!
Thank you Judie! 32 years is awesome!!!! We married later as well, in our 30’s.
We were 44, so you were way ahead of us out of the starting gate!
I think marrying at an older age is what has made our marriage so wonderful. Maturity makes such a difference.
Happy anniversary! I love seafood- your pics made my mouth water, lol
Thank you Jacquie! I wish you could have tasted it!
Congratulations on your anniversary! What a beautiful place to celebrate with such an amazing history. The food looks delectable – especially the lobster with scallops 😉 Neek
Thank you Neek!!! It definitely was an anniversary we will always remember.
Thank you Cate!
You’re very welcome!
I wish it wasn’t such a long drive to get there from New England! The food looks and sounds so good, I’d go there in a heartbeat!! Wishing you a very happy Anniversary, Diane!! <3
Yes that would be a bit of a long trip…lol Thanks so much Anita!
Wow looks divine! Happy anniversary 🌷
It was divine Krista…thank you! 🥰
Happy anniversary! The food looked delicious and big! No wonder you had to bag it for home.
Thank you Kathy it was a night we will never forget!
Congratulation! Looks a great place for a celebratory meal but I’m not surprised you took plenty back home, those are generous servings.
I always go home with leftovers but this time it was a ton! Thank you Sheree!
Happy Anniversary! 🎉🎉🎉
Congratulations on 29 years. It looks like a very nice place. Do you live near by. My husband grew up in that part of Ohio.
Yes about an hour away. Thank you!
Happy Anniversary 🎊🎉… May you continue being blessed with many more beautiful years together.
Thank you for such kind words!💕
Mazel Tov! Happy Anniversary!!
I love places like this. Festive, warm, accommodating, neighborly and easily worth the price of admission.
The food looks mouth-watering, and I want to try everything on the menu.
Thank you Matt! We will definitely be going back here! Leftovers today were still amazing!
Congratulations. Sounds like you celebrated in grand style. Your Pearl anniversary next year.
Thank you Chris! Next year I will tell him it’s diamonds! He has no idea. 🤣😂🤣😂🤣
John and I love fresh seafood and we eat it whenever we can when we go out and we love to cook it at home too – one of the advantages of living on the coast! I loved reading about it, Diane, thank you for sharing and congratulations on your 29 years!!
Thank you so much Donna! I can’t find fresh seafood here in Ohio for home other than perch and walleye from our lake. Everything is frozen and fishy tasting. I wish I lived on the coast!
If ever you’re in Australia… we can catch up and we will make some of our fabby garlic prawns – amongst their things! Have a great week, Diane!
I will hold you to it! We were just watching the poor koalas in the fire there and I wanted to cry when they showed how badly they were being burnt. They said 80% of their habitat is destroyed! How devastating. 😢
It’s tragic what is happening to our beautiful planet, Diane, and very worrying! We are very concerned about the shocking bushfires burning here because it’s not even full summer here yet! But we would love to see you here if you’re up for the 20 hour plane trip!! Take care, Diane! 🧚🏻♀️❤️🐝
I have always wanted to visit there but my husband said the same thing about the 20 hour flight. I hope you are doing well!
We had to evacuate from the farm in a Eden back up to Wollongong because of fires nearby but we will be going back down there later this week and hope that our bees are going along well!! All you can do is keep moving forward isn’t it? 🙏❤️
Oh my Donna, I am so sorry! I will be praying everything is OK.
Happy Anniversary!! What a wonderful night out to celebrate you both ❤ The setting and food look wonderful.
Thank you Lisa it was so romantic!
What a nice review – you should send it to them Diane. The food looked delicious and the Christmas decor was so tasteful. What an exquisite place to dine and especially for a special celebration – congratulations!
Thank you Linda it was so romantic!
Spoiling yourself by letting a pro cook for your anniversary is what Helen and I always try to do. We’re both good cooks. But, we get to enjoy each other’s home-cooking 364 days a year. Change can be useful. And we live in small town restaurant heaven.
We actually spoil ourselves on both of our birthdays too and because we rarely eat out together, we go for the best! You both sound a lot like us!
Isn’t this place fabulous! Been there several times… so delicious!
Unbelievable!!!!! We will be going back!
Thank you Nancy!
Happy 29th anniversary to both of you! What a great dinner! Enjoy life a little more :)❤️❤️
Thank you very much!!!!
Congratulations Diane!!! Happy Anniversary!!!!!!!! 🙂 <3
Thank you so much Stephanie! 💕

You won’t be sorry it was a fabulous place Pam! Thank you so much dear friend!❤
Happy Anniversary ! The restaurant and food look fabulous, what a wonderful memory to have. And yep, Matt is cute lol
What a lovely place to celebrate! The food looks amazing!! Hope you left room for the yummy “Monster Eclair”!
Thank you! Did you see the size of that monster? We each took a bite and finished it they next day for breakfast.
Many best wishes to you both for all the years together. Not as common as one would think these days .Well done and many more of them
Happy Anniversary Diane & Hubby!
