Pizza, in all its forms, is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser. But let’s face it, buying pizza for a crowd can sometimes get pricey. Fortunately, at Grapevine Pizza, there is an emphasis on food that is budget-friendly, even for a large group. This review focuses on the newer Grapevine location in Gahanna, but definitely visit the original Canal Winchester location as well. Both joints will make a regular out of you in no time, and are extremely supportive of their local communities.
Weekly specials reign supreme here, with each day touting a new deal. Tuesdays are especially popular, since when you order a large pizza, you get a second large pizza for free! Monday – Thursdays are Family Meal Nights – for $19.99, 2 dinner entrees, garlic bread, and 6 chocolate chip cookies can be yours. For those that love subs, the Italian sub, complete with hot ham, smoked ham, pepperoni, salami, provolone, lettuce, tomato, banana peppers, and house dressing, is a great choice for $5 on Wednesdays. For a lighter option, the Antipasto salad with house-made balsamic vinaigrette is sure to please.
If specialty pizzas are more your style, there are numerous options as well. They don’t shy away from the toppings here either, which is the most important part, right? The Mother Clucker is a chicken-topped treat, with the perfect amount of ranch dressing and bacon. The GVS, their best-selling pizza, includes pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms, onion, green peppers, and extra cheese. I also liked the Buffalo Chicken pizza, because honestly, anything with blue cheese and hot sauce is tasty!
Grapevine’s bar is immense, and it is definitely a focal point for the restaurant. Except for the recent additions of 101 Beer Kitchen and Crafted Drafts, the east side of Columbus is sorely lacking in its selection of craft beer options. Grapevine helps fill that void, with huge pours of beers like Columbus Brewing Company’s IPA for what may be the cheapest prices in town. For liquor lovers, Thursdays offer $2 margaritas too. So, if you are looking for an affordable way to get your pie and pint fix, check out Grapevine Pizza!
Culinary Clue: Having a family get-together, a surprise party, or a just want a private, casual area to get together with friends? The Gahanna location has a large party room that accommodates up to 30 people. The room is free of charge to rent, simply book it in advance, and pay a $50 deposit that you get back on your bill at the end of the event. They regularly host trivia nights as well!
