Restaurants That Are Now Open For Dine-In In Ohio

    Post-coronavirus, restaurants are slowly reopening in various stages — which started with takeout and delivery and has evolved into partial capacity for dine-in— in order to ensure a safe experience until the days of everyone operating at full capacity. We are just as excited as you to get out of our own messy kitchens and back into a restaurant enjoying food and drink crafted by someone else along with new and old friends. Here is a comprehensive list of restaurants that you can enjoy dine-in eating now in Columbus, Ohio.

    Restaurants open in Columbus:

    BrewDog Short North

    The bar has a fantastic, light, and open feeling with both booth seating & shared community high-top tables to sit and enjoy a beer with friends new and old. For the warmer months, there’s also a back patio perfect for those who want to kick back for drinks in the relaxed vibe.

    BRIO Polaris 

    Delectable grilled fare, perfectly balanced cocktails, tender house-made pasta, and fantastic service - those are just a few of the things you'll experience when you visit us at BRIO Tuscan Grille at Polaris Fashion Place Mall in Columbus.

    Hubbard Grille

    Hubbard Grille is locally owned and serving modern American cuisine in the heart of the Short North.

    Bristol Republic

    Nestled in the heart of the Short North, Bristol Republic is a locally owned, Nashville inspired bar and restaurant serving up competition quality BBQ smoked in-house daily, ice-cold craft beer, over 100 rare Bourbon and Whiskeys from well-known and independent distilleries across the country and live music every Thursday, Friday & Saturday night! 

    Lindey’s Restaurant

    A long-time favorite of hip locals and out-of-towners alike, Lindey’s Restaurant & Bar is a German Village staple, marrying chic urban style with a relaxed come-as-you-are attitude. You’ll instantly feel at home with our unique menu, sophisticated wine list, and tasty cocktails.


    Mezzo translates to "middle" in Italian, and we like to think of the middle as finding a balance – between old-world tradition and new-world cuisine, between food and wine, between casual and sophisticated.
