The return of Honey Hut ice cream: ‘Major’ changes unveiled at Huntington Beach

The Noshery is an all-new expanded concessions building.

BAY VILLAGE, Ohio — Officials with the Cleveland Metroparks revealed “major improvements” at Huntington Beach in Bay Village during a press event Thursday morning.

The work marks the completion of a $1.6 million project to enhance Huntington Beach with upgrades that include the opening of The Noshery, which is an all-new expanded concessions building. Debra Berry of the Cleveland Metroparks announced that The Noshery will open to the public starting Friday, May 28.

“[The Noshery] brings back the historic feel of the pagoda-style building that first served the visitors of Huntington Beach many decades ago," she said. "The new concession building features made-to-order fare, adult beverages and, of course, Honey Hut ice cream."

Other highlights of The Noshery's menu include a raided soft pretzel, salad and a crispy walleye sandwich.

"The Noshery will also offer cocktails and craft beer from several Ohio-based breweries for guests to enjoy in the Sunset Picnic Plaza," according to a press release.

The Sunset Plaza, which offers scenic views of Lake Erie, features a fire pit, picnic tables and Adirondack Chairs.

Additional changes at Huntington Beach include: 

  • New, accessible bathroom and changing facility.
  • Improvements to the Huntington Beach entranceway and bike racks.
  • Restoration to the exterior siding of the historic water tower.
  • Bench swings for additional lake viewing will be installed later this summer.
