Avoid the ordinary, and experience our unique restaurants. While Toledo is well known for Tony Packo’s and the Mud Hens, there’s more to our rich history as a food first city. Downtown residents know that the culinary scene includes a diverse collection of local delights with must-try menus. No matter what block you’re on, there’s a great place to stop and a friendly face waiting to greet you.

When the weather gets warm, there are all kinds of ways to get your eat on downtown. Restaurant patios are packed from noon to night. Gourmet food trucks line St. Clair Street on summer Thursdays, giving workers the chance to spend their lunch break eating something new and delicious while they soak up the sun in Levis Square. On weekends, the Erie Street Farmers Market draws people from across the region to buy the freshest locally grown and sourced produce and products. Local foodies have fresh, farm-to-table options. Whatever your appetite desires, there’s always something guaranteed to satisfy.
