17 River Grille’s Waterfront Dining Destination
Owner Rick Doody opened the new Chagrin Falls restaurant as an homage to the city in August.
The former Jekyll’s Kitchen spot, one of our favorite hideaways, has been renovated into a new destination dining location that banks on the views of Chagrin Falls.17 River Grille, opened by Lindey’s Lake House Restaurant owner Rick Doody in August, features an American contemporary menu of steaks, seafood and more.
Doody, who grew up in Chagrin Falls, was inspired to expand the outdoor patios and deliver high-quality food in a setting that’s memorable for local diners. “We felt like this had the ability to be an iconic location that only comes around once every 40 or 50 years,” says Doody, whose wife Wendy Berry of W Design led the redesign. “We basically gutted the restaurant and reoriented everything toward the waterfall.”
