Pie is hard to make - the balance between the perfect flaky crust, set but not split filling, and a golden-brown, non-soggy bottom? Forget about it, we'll be ordering our pies forever. So it's a good thing that Ohio's local pie shops are a cut above the rest.

All restaurants featured below have great carryout and online ordering availability. If you’re picking up your pies in person, remember to mask up and social distance! Stay up to date on all health mandates, safety precautions and learn more about the guidelines surrounding COVID-19.
