LIMA — Lima’s Good Food Restaurants is getting ready to open its eighth Beer Barrel Pizza & Grill location in September, this one near Dublin, Ohio.
The new restaurant, slated to open in Dublin Green Shopping Center on Sept. 17, features a 350-seat dining room, outdoor patio, full bar and private banquet room.
In a new addition to the Beer Barrel concept, the Dublin restaurant includes a secondary restaurant — The Bourbon Barrel Room — which will offer more than 100 styles of bourbon, whiskey, rye and scotch, along with craft cocktails, small plates and the full Beer Barrel Pizza menu.
Steve Skilken, owner and president of Joseph Skilken & Company, which owns the Dublin Green shopping center, described Beer Barrel as a “one in a million restaurant” in a press release announcing the location’s anticipated opening.
“We turned down a lot of restaurants that wanted this location waiting for that special restaurant that had fabulous food and superb service at a family friendly price that could accommodate large events,” Skilken said.
This will be the third Beer Barrel location in central Ohio.
“We’re thrilled with the opportunity to come to Joseph Skilken & Company’s Dublin Green,” Good Food Restaurants President John Heaphy said in a press release. “Since first bringing Beer Barrel to the Columbus market in 2016, we’ve been so humbled by the outpouring of support we’ve received from the residents of the Columbus area. We’re very excited to continue growing in central Ohio and we think the Dublin and Plain City area will love our vision of warm, family friendly hospitality.”
