With Halloween swiftly approaching, it's the perfect time to get into the spooky holiday spirit with some dining companions from beyond the grave. These restaurants are known for more than just their rich history and delectable fare — they're known for being the hosts of some very strange paranormal activity.

Regular diners at the romantic date spot, One By Land, Two If By Sea in New York City swear that the restaurant is haunted by former Vice President Aaron Burr, whose carriage house is the eatery's current home. Legend tells of his daughter, Theodosia, who vanished one night on her way to visit her father and returns to haunt the restaurant to this day. 

The owner of Casey Moore's Oyster House in Tempe, Ariz., Patt St. Vincent, claims that she's witnessed more than a few suspicious events during her tenure at the restaurant, including rearranged tables and chairs in the dining room that seem to have moved on their own.

What? No Golden lamb in Lebanon, Ohio? It has been a couple of years but I think it is called "Sarah's room" which is sealed off by a plexiglass panel but a child's handprint appears on the inside... family members worked there, I've seen it. Although I consider The Golden Lamb a restaurant maybe TDM classifies it as an inn. The dining room has a gentleman diner that never left and the banquet room gets rearranged once in a while. It's on the National Register. Great place to visit, especially in the Fall.
