Eating Outdoors

When the winter weather finally breaks and soggy spring drifts away, the first thing you want to do is get outside and stay there as much as possible. That includes when you’re looking to go out for a bite to eat. Sometimes it can be hard to find the best hotspots that offer outdoor space. But if you live at Muirwood Village, our apartments for rent in Reynoldsburg, Ohio are close to several excellent outdoor dining options. Check out our list of local winners! 

#1: The Barn at Rocky Fork Creek

If you’re looking for a nicer night out to celebrate a special occasion or just indulge a bit, make your way to The Barn at Rocky Fork Creek. The menu is a robust blend of high-end and classic Midwestern fare served in a sumptuous barn setting with upscale fixtures and furniture. There is also an expansive patio where you can sit outside and enjoy one of their juicy steaks or a hearty dessert like peanut butter pie. They even offer a kids’ menu, so you’re sure to find something for everyone to love. 

#2: Prost Beer and Wine Café

This is the spot for a local beer, a glass of wine, good food, and an all-around good time. They have a few specialties, including bruschetta, a large charcuterie spread, and cheese in general. They have draft happy hours, lunch specials, and even a wine flight and bruschetta special. Complete the picture with a tasty sandwich or panini out on the large patio. 

#3: Jay’s Crab Boil and Oyster Bar

Get a taste of the coastal life at Jay’s. You can expect classics like the “catch of the day” or a massive spread of well-seasoned seafood, potatoes, and corn on the cob. There are also a variety of dishes served on a lava stone–that’s right, a rock formed by lava and used to keep your meat or seafood nice and warm. If fish isn’t your thing, then there are plenty of other options to satisfy your appetite. And you can enjoy it all on their covered outdoor patio. 

#4: Zapata’s Mexican Kitchen

When the craving for Mexican food pops up, pop into Zapata’s. They take pride in providing a menu full of familiar favorites but also plenty of traditional dishes like carnitas Michoacan and seafood dishes like a fresh ceviche. You can also bring along any kids because they have full kids’ menu. If you’re looking for an adults’ night out, they also have a full bar. The best part? You can head to their covered outdoor seating to enjoy the fresh air as you dine. 

#5: Flavor 91 Bistro

The marquee says it all: burgers, wings, soup, salad, beer, and wine. They are family owned and operated, and they are a true local gem. They are all about classic good food, but there are some fun surprises on the menu, too, like the Sambusa. They’re flaky pastry triangles stuffed with Ethiopian-style lentils. It’s all wrapped up perfectly with an outdoor patio featuring live music.
