Sterk's of Oberlin
John & Shelly Sterk purchased the property in Oberlin, Ohio in 2015 to house the existing catering business and to expand with a restaurant and tavern/bar. Sterk's Catering, Inc., our off-premises catering business, relocated from Vermilion to our new location in the beginning of 2015. The restaurant/tavern opened in the spring of 2015 where we feature a menu of fresh, locally sourced foods. Our bar features a variety of some of Ohio's best craft beers on tap, imported and domestic bottled beers, local wines and fine spirits.
