They may not have an official patio, but make sure to check out some al fresco dining options in Downtown also! DiVine Wine, 326 S. Main St., is a self-serve wine bar with 28 wines to choose from, over 75 bottled beers available, and small plates – plus there are a few tables in front of the restaurant to enjoy wine and the sun! Warm weather has arrived when the garage doors come up at Legend’s Steakhouse and Sports Bar and Alexandria’s! Both locations have a few tables on the sidewalk, but when the garage doors are up you can really celebrate summer in style, while enjoying a great meal. Also in Downtown Findlay on Wednesdays, is the Food Truck Court in Marathon Center for the Performing Arts’ parking lot! Pick one of the many great food trucks to visit and take your lunch back to the office to enjoy, or sit at one of the picnic tables MCPA has provided. Not quite a patio, but a great option for al fresco dining is the Lima Avenue Rootbeer Stand! Enjoy car-side service or take advantage of the picnic tables on site, either way you’ll be devouring a delicious Spanish Dog and Float in no time!
