Dining options for everyone and every occasion

Summit Park boasts four on-site restaurants, each featuring distinctively different menus and dining experiences. So, whether it’s a casual lunch out or a special dinner celebration, you’re sure to find the perfect setting for the occasion.

Come and taste the ever-changing menu at The Brown Dog Cafe where you’ll find eclectic choices like Brown Dog Poutine, truffled asparagus, specialty burgers, smoked duck, wild boar, and more. Find yourself with a hot dog craving? Senate is going to be your spot. Not only are they cooking up some elevated hot dogs like the Croque Madame with bechamel or the Lindsay Lohan with goat cheese and caramelized onions, but you’ll also find other delicious choices like the Lobster BLT, falafel tacos, and gyros.

Everyone needs to get their Mexican fix and you can do that at Tahona Kitchen and Bar. This casual-style restaurant is serving fresh, hand-crafted food and an impressive selection of tequilas. Treat yourself to a few street tacos or opt for a heartier torta if you’re feeling really hungry. Either way, you’ll want to wash it down with their Perfect Patron Margarita. Of course, no meal is complete without dessert and Nanny Belle’s has some of the yummiest ice cream in Cincinnati. Don’t forget to order it one of their housemade waffle cones or waffle bowls.
