Our Story...

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 5 years we have expanded our restaurant to include a seasonal patio for dining, a market for take-out orders, gift card purchases, as well as tasty treats & sweets!

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.
