April 14, 2018 Marissa Gamble

Waverly (also Waverly City) is a village in, and the county seat of, Pike County, Ohio, United States. The population was 4,408 at the 2010 census. The town was formed in 1829, as the construction of the Ohio and Erie Canal along the west bank of the Scioto River brought new growth to the area. In 1861 the county seat was moved here from Piketon.

Tim Hortons

Reviewed By Mom_USA70 - Chillicothe, Ohio

Stopped in for an egg white, cheese, Turkey sausage on English muffing and decaf coffee with a shot of sugar free vanilla and cream. I also picked up a chocolate chip muffin to take home to my son as a side to the meal combo. Food was the typical Tim Horton food. Sandwich was hot and cheese melted inside. Coffee was hot. But I really could not taste the vanilla. Did they forget to put it in or did they not put enough? Sandwich same as any other Tim Horton's. Muffin looks perfect. Even had sugar crystals on top. I can't comment on the taste as I'm taking it home to my son, hopefully it will make it home! Seating area was clean. Table tops looked clean. Employee who took my order was pleasant.

Be sure to stop in,meet our friendly staff and have the best old fashioned frozen custard treat you have ever tasted! Be sure to check our facebook page for our seasonal and Winter close hours.

It's pretty good. The custard is worth trying for sure! They offer pints in a lot of flavors and have flavors of the week. My kids love the kids cups (dirty worm and fish bait).

The reason why I didn't give it 5 stars is because they are extremely lacking in the food dept. They only offer hot dogs, pork and chicken sandwiches and reubens. I've had the hot dog and chicken. Both were good. Hot dog sauce is too sweet IMHO. Be better if they'd expand the food offered, especially fries or onion rings.

There isn't much seating but it's a good place to go after a ball game.

We specialize in pizza, pasta, subs, salad, and much more.

Reviewed By JasperBND - Dayton, Ohio

Stopped here to eat while passing through on a trip. I have had Giovanni's before in West Virginia so I knew what to expect. The pizza was good but not my favorite. Their anti-pasta salads are excellent. Other family members got the baked spaghetti and...MoreThanks for reviewing our business. We hope to see you again soon!

Great seafood and other items if you don't like seafood. Good drinks. Several favorite waitresses. The dessert looked amazing but was too full to eat.

Diner 23

Reviewed By Sailor W - Lenore, West Virginia

My son and I ate here yesterday, the service was quick, the people working there were friendly and the food was good and really filling, not expensive either. It seems to be a place where locals go regularly, because every time someone left, the workers would say " bye so and so, see ya tomorrow, or bye so and so, see ya next Friday. Pretty good little place to stop and have a meal.

Reviewed By 88FFG93OSU - Ohio

I've driven through Waverly a thousand times on the way to and from Columbus. Never paid attention to this pizza place. So yesterday I was near Waverly and hungry. Used TripAdvisor and settled on this. Glad I did. Friendly staff, clean eatery. Good solid pizza. Looked like a good menu of sandwiches as well, but you can only eat so much. I liked the crust and the the taste was solid. Give it a try!

Ordered a 10 oz ranchers sirloin steak, half of steak was full of gristle. 1/2 chicken was very dry and burnt. French fries were cold and rubbery. No seasoning on chicken or fries. No rolls.
