City Restaurant Week

We've been to Columbus Inn several times this year and enjoy it's atmosphere. Most of the time we're there when it's not very busy. We recently enjoyed the 3-course Steak and Cake Monday Special for $28 per person. However, City Restaurant Week was busy and very noisy. The music was too loud and... read more

Had a business dinner with a small group of coworkers. Lots of choices available and all agreed they enjoyed their meal. I had the tuna and it was nicely done. We were in a small room upstairs (one of several), so the atmosphere was perfect to have group conversations. The bar has a very nice ambiance as well.

I have come to really enjoy this spot. Great food, great wine list, great energy and vibe. Highly recommend it. The tavern area is a lot of fun.

We had a nice dinner here in the main dining room. The food was good, the variety nice, the service was above average, the prices were on the high side, but the real killer was the noise level. Even in the main dining room, with lowere ceilings, and a lot of customers, they had the music over the PA system... More

This time we went for Sunday brunch to celebrate my wife's birthday. We've been here several times for dinner especially on holiday weekends. The brunch was great. Lots of selections, including fresh, raw, oysters. I like the idea that this restaurant is not huge. It has a great cozy feel.

A dining party of two, we ate in the bar area. It was a bit loud, but still enjoyable. Our drink order came out just fine. The fish taco appetizer was tasty: three small tacos, each with a satisfying piece of lightly breaded fish on each taco. The server was attentive, the entrees came right in time. My dining companion... More

My boyfriend and I love going to Brunch. We decided to try the Columbus Inn. We were at brunch around 12:30pm on a Sunday. It's a very nice building. You can sit in the main dining room or the bar area. There's a few fire places which make for a romantic setting. You wear something formal or jeans. We sat... More

West Wilmington Delaware has been in need of a lunch location with plenty of parking, can get you served in the limited time a business person has for lunch, in an atmosphere that is relaxing are quiet while presenting very good food. Columbus Inn is filling that need very nicely. Salad order by 3 of us and a salmon entrée... More

We had a large group for dinner (9). The server was not the best, got our drink order wrong. Now, that is easy to do with a lrg group, but not when 6 people had the same bottle of wine & the others had beer.We started out with some appetizers; fried pickles & Calamari. Now I love fried pickles, but... More

Once a year my family and I spend Christmas in Wilmington, Delaware. I seize the opportunity to meet a friend and have dinner with him on December 23rd. We always go to the Columbus Inn. They offer many different micro beers and the food is excellent. It is fresh, tasty and well-presented. The service we received was fast and efficient.... More
