One of my favorite things to do and I started to do this when my parents would load up all the kids in the car and take a day trip with no destination, just a drive to see different things, taking back roads and all and we would usually stop at a restaurant for a late lunch or an early dinner. We would not even have a clue on what type of food they served. Almost every time we would hit a restaurant that was in the middle of nowhere, and it would turn out to be a gem!

These restaurants were voted the best in their category, what restaurant is your favorite gem, We would love to know.

The Gibbet Hill Grill

The Gibbet Hill Grill in Groton is a country steakhouse that offers fresh, locally farmed meat in an incredibly beautiful rural setting. It may be in the middle of nowhere, It's worth the extra effort, and since this is the best steakhouse in Massachusetts, definitely worth going to. It ticks all the boxes, the food, the atmosphere, friendly comfy atmosphere. I would be very surprised if it does not become your go-to place for delicious steaks.

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
