"Surprising things do come in small packages. What I mean
by small is quaint and enjoyable! The Dégagé Jazz
Café is exactly that. Superb food and great jazz makes
this “gem” of Maumee Ohio the place to be. This
jazz aficionado travels from Findlay Ohio whenever possible to
enjoy what life is all about, Jazz! It’s the closest thing
to a West Coast venue I have found in Ohio. Love this place and
so will you!!"
"Fine dining in a truly historic atmosphere! Chef Joseph and his crew have put together a wonderfully eclectic menu of fun french cuisine! Aged steakes grilled to perfection, local seasonal veggies with awesome glazes and/or sauces, fresh salads to whet your appetite and great ambiance!

"We had, hands down, the BEST scallops ever last week at Degage. The pizzas are also a favorite, but we have had only good experiences with everything on the menu. The Chef is a true gift to our small town. Maureen, the manager, has done wonders with this small, quaint restaurant. We like the patio, but have enjoyed the jazz indoors as well. It is as close as you can get to sitting on the river for dinner."
