My sister and I enjoyed a pre- show dinner. We sat near the bar because it was a bit cool out in the lobby area of the restaurant. The service was excellent and the food delicious! We each enjoyed a very nice glass of wine, as well. This was not our first time there and won’t be our last. More

Discover Dayton

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.
