Ok food, but nice setting for large group

I had a large group dinner here for work. The food was just ok as was the service, but the back room was a nice place for a large group (35-40) people. We had two separate rooms, one with a bar for the cocktail hour and then we moved into an adjoining room for dinner. I recognize that the... read more

Read the reviews and put it on the list. But, man did this place over achieive. The feel, the space, the vibe were excellent. The service was outstanding. Beer selections very good. Did I say the service was outstanding? But boy was the food tremendous, everything our party had was simply fantastic. When I go back to this state, I... More

This is an older well established venue. I was pleasantly surprised by the menu choices and the quality of the food. Six of us dined and we all had great meals from excellent raw oysters to tender short ribs and fresh scallops. The only downside was that they seemed to be short staffed. The waiter did the best he could... More

Four of us had dinner there and we where seated without any problems. The staff was excellent, taking our orders, delivery of our food etc. The only problem was the loud noisy and loud talking from the patrons. It made a good dinner not a good dinner. I am not sure what can be done but I will not go... More

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 inappropriate. The fixed priced dinner was good... 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.

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.
