What are some good second date ideas? We are planning on getting food to start. Last time we walked outside for hours but it's going to be 4 degrees Fahrenheit during our date so walking outside out of the question. Possibly board games / movie?

It really depends on your age and what you qualify as "fun". Assuming that you're both in your 20s or early 30s, a nice dinner followed by games (pool, dartz, bowling) over drinks might do the trick. However, if you're in your late 30s or early 40s...or even 50s, you could bring her flowers and cook dinner together and enjoy the rest of the evening crawled up on the couch or in front of the fireplace, sharing details about each other...with romantic music in the background. Not everyone's cup of tea, so you do whatever suits you best.
P.S. I'm currently engaged and my fiance went above and beyond to win me over...doing the aforementioned, as well.

Adding to the list of great suggestions above:
Just walking around a mall
Desserts & drinks - restaurant, bakery, coffee shop
Cat cafe
Paint & Sip

Never go on a movie date, especially in the early stages because you can’t talk and listen/observe. The early stages are about getting to know you better.

The board game is a great idea, just make sure you have a few. Generally doing activities are great date ideas. Try to avoid dinner dates for a while.
