Our building was originally built in the mid1990s as a Bob Evans Restaurant. After sitting mostly empty for over 2 decades, we purchased the building and property on May 18, 2018. Over more than 6 pain staking months, the building and property were fully remodeled, as Ole Rooste opened its doors for business on December 9, 2018.
Over the past 4 years we have expanded our restaurant to include a seasonal patio for dining, a market for take-out orders, gift card purchases, seasonal & household decor, as well as tasty treats & sweets. We also offer on-site private events along with off property catering to accommodate most sizes & budgets!
Ole Rooste before being fully Remodeled!
Ole Rooste has always been locally owned & operated by husband & wife duo,
Cary & Lori Hardy.
Combined they have more than 35 years of experience in the food/hospitality industry and they recognized the need for Connersville to have a nice, sit-down restaurant. Together, they use their talents daily, along with their staff to provide quality, fresh meals in a clean and welcoming environment.
