Grandview Heights is very near Ohio State. Many believe Dewey's Pizza is the best pizza chain in Ohio, and there's one in Grandview Heights. Also there is a Jason's Deli, if you want a healthy food option. Kids especially love Jason's because it has free soft serve ice cream for dessert.
The kids also might enjoy one of the restaurants at Ohio State's Ohio Union student union building.
I see you're fairly new to the TA forums. Not sure if you intended to post this on the Columbus forum or put it on the Ohio forum on purpose. It's probably a good idea to put it on the Columbus forum rather then the more general Ohio forum.
Obviously youll get responses here, but I expect you'll get more (and better?) ones on the city forum rather then the state-wide one.
At least one reason for this is that generally speaking locals tend to "hang out" in the forum for their city more than the one for their state.
Good luck & hope your trip goes well,
The Columbus Spaghetti Warehouse also is a possibility:
You also should consider visiting a Jeni's and/or Graeter's Ice Cream store. They are both rated among the best ice creams in the U.S., although Jeni's emphasis on locavore creations makes it more unique.Edited: 03 April 2012, 17:16
If you are staying in Grove City you will have plenty of options along Stringtown Road for meals.
Just curious....is there a reason you are staying in Grove City? I think a hotel downtown would be more convienent to both OSU and COSI.
I am new to posting and I didn't mean to post to the general OH. :) I thank you all very much for replying though. Kendallsmom - We are going to be meeting family and we were simply told where we would be staying. Not sure why we are staying out of the city! Hopefully traffic won't be bad getting into the city for our excursions.
You are not far from your destinations...everywhere in Columbus takes 20 minutes to get to, lol....there are just more convienent areas. However Grove City is nice and you will jave lots around you for food, shopping, etc.
A neighboring post is about a family meal in Columbus that is worth a visit.
Buca de Beppo is in the Arena District, 5 minutes from COSI. It's family Italian, kid friendly and in my opinion, better food than Spaghetti Warehouse.
One block away is the Ted's Montana Grill burger option.
Schmidt's Sausage Haus in German Village is a Columbus landmark. Moderately priced, family friendly and midway to Grove City.
Also in German Village is the original Max and Ermas. Burgers and more. Casual, moderate, good food, and totally kid friendly.
