3 Valentine’s Day Dinner Deals for Families in Columbus

Take the whole family out for one of these family-friendly Valentine’s Day Dinner Deals in Columbus!

Who can get a babysitter on Valentine’s Day? If you’re raising your hand, then feel free to scroll on past! “Stuck” with the kids on Valentine’s Day? Take the kids to one of these 3 Columbus restaurants who are offering you a little extra incentive for spending the day of love with your dependents.

3 Valentine’s Day Dinner Deals for Families in Columbus, Ohio:

1. Piada Italian Street Food

From 5:00 PM – 10:00 PM on Valentine’s Day, (Thursday, February 14th) all Piada restaurants in Columbus will be offering buy-one-get-one-free on all entrees. Check this link for your nearest Piada location! Piada offers a kid’s menu that includes a kids pasta, chicken fingers or a kids meatball. Meals come with your choice of chocolate milk or apple juice. Kids meals are for kids ages 12 and under and range from $4.99 – $5.99.

True story, my oldest son cries every time I say we’re going to Piada. “Why don’t you ever take me where I want to go?” he whines. And then legitimately says, “I love this place” every time he eats his food. I am not lying. I try to remind him of this each time but it’s futile. My kids love the pasta and the chicken fingers. 

Disclosure: I am a Piada partner.

2. Rusty Bucket

On February 14, Rusty Bucket is holding their Family Valentine’s Day event. Kids ages 12 and under can get a free meal off the kid’s menu, and they will also get a Cupid’s Cup Kiddie Beverage. For a full list of participating restaurants and to make a reservation, visit www.myrustybucket.com.

Can’t make it to Rusty Bucket on Valentine’s Day? Pick up the Bucketed Bookworm Bookmark Tracker and fill it out with 5 books your child has read. The next time you eat there, your child will earn a complimentary kid’s meal!

3. Chick-fil-A on Sawmill

Also a true story: my kids LOVE Chick-fil-A and would eat there every time we ate out if we let them choose. But who can blame them? They truly do  have the best chicken nuggets!

On Valetine’s Day at Chick-fil-A on Sawmill you can get your Nuggets or Chick-n-Minis in a heart-shaped pan! This fun twist is going on February 13-15, 2019 while supplies last! Chick-n-Minis are only available during breakfast hours (6:30 AM – 10:30 AM). Remember to request your heart shaped tin when ordering! 

Disclosure: I am a partner of Chick-fil-A on Sawmill

OSU Airport and Barnstormer Diner

Watching planes take off and land at the Ohio State University Airport is a fun (and free) activity for kids in Columbus! While you’re there, plan to have breakfast or lunch at Jack and Benny’s Barnstormer Diner next door!

Fun for Families at Ohio State University Airport and Jack and Benny’s Barnstormer Diner:

The Ohio State University Airport was one of our favorite places to visit! The observation deck was a great place to watch planes take off and land! The Airport recently went under a major renovation and the tower was closed for several months in 2018.

We recently revisited the OSU Airport to see what was new! I’ve updated this post with details about the newly remodeled observation deck so you know what to expect when you visit with your kids!

The remodel is stunning! The observation tower is now an entire floor in the building and it’s beautiful!

A few fun facts: the Columbus Zoo has used the airport when transporting manatees and panda bears and Barbara Bush landed at the airport in Air Force Two while President George H.W. Bush was in office.

Jack and Benny’s Barnstormer Diner

We love the breakfast at Jack and Benny’s Barnstormer Diner, the diner at the OSU Airport.  This is a really fun outing for kids AND adults!  The diner is adjacent to the terminal of the Ohio State University Airport and is filled with airport and airplane memorabilia.  The walls are covered with pictures and awards.

Jack and Benny's Barnstormer Diner

A door in the diner opens to a garage full of small planes:

All kinds of breakfast (and lunch) options are available and reasonably priced.  Our meals were excellent!  The kids meals came with drinks with free refills (endless chocolate milk anyone?!) and they gave us adults coffees to go!  Needless to say we were all happy!

Jack and Benny's Barnstormer Diner

What kid could resist pancakes cut out like airplanes?!  That was a fun surprise:
