— We love a good surprise -- especially when it comes to Dayton’s best food and dining spots.
Luckily for us, Dayton.com’s Best of 2017 winners had quite a few of them.
Below you’ll find the top three surprise winners -- in other words, places we weren’t familiar with, but now can’t wait to try.
1.) This local bar swept first place in MORE THAN 5 categories.
This Washington Twp. bar stood out in several categories -- almost too many to count. It took top honors in the following categories: Best Bloody Mary, Best Bartender (Holly Henry), Best Bar Bathroom, Best Dive Bar, Best Happy Hour and Best Karaoke.
2.) This restaurant won ‘Best Fine Dining’ -- and you probably haven’t tried it yet.
WATERMARK | 20 S. First St., Miamisburg | 937-802-0891 | Facebook We’re always looking for a great fine dining experience. While Watermark is new -- it opened in September 2017 -- you’re probably familiar with Eric and Chef Maria Walusis, former owners of the successful Nibbles.
3.) Don’t miss this breathtaking view of Dayton.
We know, it sounds a little odd: the best view of Dayton is from a cemetery. But not just any cemetery. Woodland is a beautifully-kept ground and a historically-significant site in its own right. Flight innovators Orville and Wilbur Wright, poet Paul Laurence Dunbar, humorist and writer Erma Bombeck and many more famous Daytonians are buried on these beautiful grounds. But if you make sure to wind your way up to the top, there is a stunning overlook over our fair city. Don’t miss it.
