Find Some Southern Comfort in Downtown Toledo

Southern waffles with almond chicken from Fowl & Fodder Downtown

As the cool weather approaches, the southern food scene in downtown will warm you right up! We’ve gathered a list of some great tasting southern food we think you’ll love.


Registry Bistro

The food was so good, Registry Bistro had to extend their special menu time period! Be sure to stop by on Tuesdays and Wednesdays through November 18 to enjoy some low country, southern comfort food and cocktails.


HotBox Bistro

With plenty of southern classics on the menu, HotBox Bistro will check off the boxes for even the pickiest of eaters. Grab a Po’ Boy and gumbo and enjoy!


Adams Street Café

Talk about a crowd-pleasing menu! The Adams Street Café menu has a global influence but features plenty of classic southern sandwiches and sides.


Fowl & Fodder Downtown

New chef, new menu, new southern-inspired options! Try the shrimp and grits, southern waffles or Appalachian Roots Burger with a side of fried green tomatoes.


The Heights/Brim House

When you get a southern chef, you get a southern-inspired menu. Chef Michael Rigot is cooking up tasty southern comfort food regularly in the kitchen, but also for Chef’s Table Dinners.


Ye Olde Durty Bird

With a menu as expansive as Durty Bird’s, of course you’ll find some southern classics. Try the Po’ Boy or Pimento Cheese & Bacon Burger for some good eats!
