Top restaurant recommendations from locals

American Restaurant
$$
“One of my personal favorite spots! The menu has no GMO's (yay!) varied menu for any vegan, keto, paleo etc. diets. They have two areas in the restaurant - one for typical eat in with a great bar as well and the other more like a cafe where you can spend an afternoon working and drinking organic soda!!! Great spot to visit with kids too; I suggest the skillet cookie for kids of ALL ages ;)”

“If you like hot dogs and tater tots with a side a great live music the happy dog is the spot for you! A local favorite you can choose between fruit loops and/or a fried egg on your hot dog or more traditional options if you aren't up for all that! They have a vegetarian option too.”

“Charming Parisian inspired bistro and cafe. Menu is traditionally French, but priced right with relaxed atmosphere. Weekend brunch is one of the most popular services, but I prefer visiting for a late weekday lunch or dinner when it is not as busy. ”

Meal Takeaway
“One of the McNulty's bars - along with Market Garden (down the street), Bar Cento / Bier Markt / Speakeasy (across the street) - that really make up the Ohio City bar / restaurant scene. All awesome places with excellent beer lists, but Nano Brew (and Market Garden) have amazing patios, too!”
