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.
Dough Mama in Clintonville
Locally loved Dough Mama has become a fixture of Columbus food-identity, bringing such pies like crowd-favorites lavender-lemon and cranberry-ginger. Recently featured in The Kitchn, shop owner, Perrie Wilkoff, celebrated selling 802 pies just for Thanksgiving alone!
Rood Food & Pie in Cleveland
This CLE favorite carries its too-cool-for-school vibes from the restaurant to its pies and savory goods. Inspired by fresh southern cuisine, favorites like their Eggnog Cream Pie is back on the menu for the holidays. Paired with their signature Pie Bar cocktails (boozy drinks + boozy pies, anyone?) and you've got the perfect recipe for a comforting night in!

O Pie O in Cincinnati
After totally killing it as a pop-up at the Findlay Market, O Pie O has a brand new location that's taken Downtown Cincinnati by storm. Handmade pies offered fresh every day from a grab-and-go and carryout-style locale, is perfect for the current climate. Try their silky Brown Butter Pumpkin Pie, so popular that they've even released the recipe!
You can order their pies online.
Partial to Pie in Dayton
It’s time everyone got really cool about eating pie for any meal of the day - it's not just dessert, people! At Partial to Pie, most customers are partial to their incredibly flaky, impossibly tender quiche that, on several occasions among Google reviewers, invoked an "explosion of flavor!" reaction.
If you have dietary restrictions, they can definitely accommodate. Just make sure to pre-order in advance!
Schmucker's Restaurant in Toledo
Most people have something they eat anytime they're home. Whether that's mom's famous casserole or your local ice cream joint. In Toledo, it's Schmucker's Restaurant (not to be confused with Smuckers - also from Ohio!) open since 1948 and serving 20 different kinds of classic American pies.
Take a slice of home with you and call 419-535-9116 to order.
