Spring Gift Certificate Sale: Dine Originals GCs now 30% off!

Treat yourself to a nice dinner out this patio season with discounted gift certificates to the city's best independent restaurants! 

As a thank you for your continued support, our member restaurants offer a limited number of gift certificates at a 30% discount each quarter throughout the year. Second-quarter gift certificates are on sale now!

Dine Originals Columbus exists to promote and celebrate the value of locally owned restaurants. These discounted certificates are a vehicle for our members to raise funds for the marketing and promotion of the dine local movement. Consider it an investment that seeks to reward longstanding patrons as well as to entice new customers to come in for a meal. At Dine Originals, we believe the best marketing tactic is the one that seats a customer in one of our chairs and provides the restaurant with the opportunity to turn a consumer into a regular -- knowing the relationship will only build from there.
