When it comes to tasting the flavors of the South, there isn’t a more appropriate spot than one that features the welcoming, easy slope of a barn's roof. In addition to authentic digs, Tony's Barn offers slow-smoked barbecue and refreshing sweet tea, all enjoyed at casual wooden tables. Dig into smoked St. Louis style ribs or breaded and fried catfish before sampling barn brownies or sawdust pies—an amalgam of chocolate chips, coconut, walnut, and sliced bananas.

Amid a relaxing atmosphere permeated by candlelight and gentle music, 855 Salon & MedSpa's resident massage therapists banish tension and pain from necks and backs with strokes customized to each client's needs. This aura of tranquility extends to 855’s other spa treatments, which range from soothing facials that rid skin of acne to diamond-tip microdermabrasion treatments that slough away dead cells to unveil brighter, more youthful-looking complexions.

While the spa team focuses on muscles and skin, the salon’s masterful stylists fashion hair into wedding-ready updos and brighten locks with all-over color. Their deep-conditioning treatments inject some softness into frizzy strands, and their waxing services help remove unwanted hair, including those two pesky mustaches that keep growing above your eyes.

Floating on the waters of the Ohio—and gently rocking in the wake of passing boats—RiverWatch restaurant transports visitors to the tropics with a little taste of Key West. Helmed by Captain Mike, the floating dining room and bar frequently features live music in the vein of Jimmy Buffet, and Thursday-night karaoke gives diners the chance to cover their favorite beach jam or shout "Land ho!" while pointing to the riverbank. Combined, these musical stylings soundtrack a menu rich in seafood and American standards for the landlubbers. Buckets of bottled beers wash down wings tossed in one of eight signature sauces, blackened mahi mahi sided by thick-cut chips, and Angus-certified burgers.
