As more and more active seniors get vaccinated for COVID-19, and pandemic restrictions are easing, we can finally get back to enjoying life in the greater Cincinnati area. If you love dining out, or are just tired of cooking most of your own meals – and doing the dishes – for the past year, it’s a welcome sign that restaurants are getting back to business as usual. To help you find the perfect place to dine, check out these top online dining resources. Before you head out for dinner sure to check with the restaurant by calling or visiting their website for their current COVID-19 policy.

OpenTable is both a website and a convenient smartphone app (iPhone or Android) where you can search for restaurants, read real reviews, and book a reservation. It allows easy searching by cuisine, neighborhood, price, rating, and more. Results are displayed on an easy-to-use map so you can see what’s nearby when you’re out and about. At the time of the writing of this article there were close to 200 restaurants in the Cincinnati area, and the list is growing all the time.

The list of Cincinnati-area restaurants on Resy is small but growing, so it’s worth checking it out from time to time. Resy offers both a website and smartphone apps (iPhone or Android).


Yelp! is one of the first and maybe the best-known apps for finding just about any kind of food you’re craving.
