The Loft is a 2 level restaurant with a live music venue upstairs. Amazing food, friendly service, and delicious drinks mixed with an atmosphere you won't find anywhere else at the hub of Uptown Columbus! The Loft is a Columbus Uptown favorite, a family run business rooted in local history since 1992, combining food, fun, and music in a scrumptious and unique way. It has always been our family's goal to share with our patron's quality and value in a casual atmosphere. In short, if you love extraordinary food, the best in live entertainment plus a warm and welcoming service staff, come spend the evening with us!

My favorite spot downtown!

I love the loft especially their comedy nights on Thursdays. If you reserve ahead of time its only $5 per person & its two full hours of laughs. Drinks are reasonable and the food is delicious. If your in downtown & not sure where to go first ... try The Loft. Great music most every night... read more

We waited a long time to be seated. When we were finally seated, we were seated upstairs. However, we were not informed that a live band was scheduled to perform momentarily. I believe we would have waited a bit longer to avoid the noise. But, the food was not really worth the wait. It was average pub food. We had... More

Went there on a Wednesday night for a steak. Nearly had my mind made up for the rib eye steak regular menu item for $19 when the bar tender mentioned the Wednesday night steak special - a 12 ounce boneless rib eye steak, one side, and a beer for $15. Best $15 I ever spent! Perfectly cooked and tender. Side... More

A very friendly waitress provided great suggestions for us. We had two appetizers: the buffalo chicken dip (AMAZING) and the sweet potato nachos (pretty good). My boyfriend had the unstuffed chicken (something like that) which he said was pretty decent, and I had the pork which was deeeeeelicious. A good meal all around! (Try the buffalo chicken dip!!!!!!!!)

This is one of the best and most consistent Columbus restaurants. I always try to support small businesses instead of chains and this is a great place. The food is always good and the menu occasionally changes which is nice. The bar has a fun but not rowdy atmosphere and the added bonus of outside seating and the upstairs bar... More

All I can say is what took us so long to eat here! Now we're hooked! Both times service has been great and food served prompt and piping hot. No complaints whatsoever!

I'm not one that normally writes about the desert first, but this is huge. The Loft had a couple selections of cakes that were huge! 4 layers of sweet, creamy, deliciousness. Dinner was good too. We tried the chicken Caesar wrap, and it was better than expected. The tortilla that I expected was more like a Gyro. The taste was... More

Wow what a surprise The Loft was. The food, stuffed tilapia, was exceptional. Right downtown in the uptown area easy parking in nearby no charge parking garage. Atmosphere is lively yet not noisy, you can still carry on a conversation. The Carrot cake portion is enough for four people and it is excellent. Enjoy.

We have become regulars at the loft since we discovered comedy night. Every Thursday we have dinner at The Loft and stay for the comedy. It starts with the most pleasant greaters you will ever meet in Columbus. We start with dinner which has always been amazing. They do change up their menu and the staff is always quick to... More
