Updated September 2020

Going out to dine with a group? We always say the more, the merrier when we go out; however, that can feel easier said than done. With more people, it seems like there are fewer options for where to go. Yet, this list proves that there are 45+ spaces go out and eat with a group -- so get ready to make a reservation!

We categorized the list by group size, however, many places offer multiple group dining areas so it’s worth reviewing all the options and calling the restaurant directly to ask what’s possible!
