With Ohio finally transitioning to longer AND warmer days, it means that outdoor dining is finally going to be in full swing. There’s no more perfect way to indulge and enjoy your favorite foods with your favorite people. For those outdoor dining connoisseurs, we’ve compiled a list of all of the places in Grove City that offers outdoor seating. You can find something new for every week, return to your favorites, or order some takeout and make it your OWN outdoor dining experience. The adventure options are practically endless!
Cimi’s Bistro at the Pinnacle
Fine dining with an even finer view. Make a reservation at this Italian-inspired eatery and soak in the sun while you watch golfers tackle the ninth hole down below. If you come in on Fridays or Saturdays, listen to live music while trying one of the weekly specials! If you’re a fan of wine, stop in on Wine Wednesday to enjoy half off (up to $15) a bottle of wine. (I myself am a huge fan of the Caposaldo.)

Plank’s On Broadway
You don’t have to be a history buff to enjoy Plank’s On Broadway, but it’s still really cool to know the history. Plank’s On Broadway is housed in Grove City’s oldest business. The building opened as a hotel in 1854 and is now a beloved restaurant nearly everyone in Grove City has been to. (I personally loved their Shirley Temple’s as a kid). Enjoy the scene outside while dining on their patio in the center of downtown. On weekends, take in the live music and enjoy a slice of White Pizza!

Transcend Coffee + Roastery is a little different from the other places on this menu. Transcend is the place to go for a wide variety of coffees. They offer delicious pastries from Country Cakes & Bakes to pair alongside the perfect cup of joe, too. Not a fan of coffee? They also offer wonderful brewed teas to sip on. Take your cup and pastry outside and soak up the sun in their limited outdoor seating to start your morning off right.
