Dayton's best restaurants based upon thousands of OpenTable diner reviews
Located north of Cincinnati, historic Dayton has numerous options for those seeking culinary adventures or looking for a bite to eat after soaking up the city's historic attractions and parks. Pizzerias are an important part of the local culture and are frequented by residents and out-of-town guests. The city is also home to American-style steakhouses and nationally recognized fine-dining establishments. Dayton's restaurateurs draw inspiration from the rich history of the area, and it is home to the nation's only full-service brewery operating out of a museum. The city has much more to offer than craft-brew houses and American staples as it also has a thriving international dining scene featuring lively Irish pubs, authentic Asian restaurants and Latin American chefs bringing exotic flavors to the table.
