Never been to Columbus and friends took us here. The wild mushroom flatbread was so good as was the burger. Sweet potato fries were a nice change too. Wide variety of beers and the staff was fast and friendly. Good choice!!

I love the building and atmosphere. The appetizer we had was only so-so. The main course was delicious!!! I recommend the Salmon. Because the appetizer was so so and maybe they had an off day, I docked a point. I only ate here once while visiting, I am sure that if came here on another day it would be fine.... More

We held a military wives' night out at the Loft, and had a great time. It isn't huge, but our party wasn't large, so it worked out. The food was fun, a bit rich, but so yummy. The fried brie was a great start! The atmosphere can be loud on weekends, but still a great vibe! I wouldn't take my... More

This is a great little place dead center in the downtown, Broadway area of Columbus. Make sure you go when a good band is scheduled, because the locals make this a very fun place to be. Make sure you get there early to get a good seat, at least 15 minutes before the performance starts. If there is no music,... More

Having both a trendy spot that offers good food plus entertainment is unusual. They have an outdoor patio that is covered and a nice bar that is well stocked. Staff were friendly, appear to be college students and don't realize what a great town they live in.

There were three in our party. We started off with the tuna appetizer as well as the mushroom flatbread. Tuna was amazing. So good, I considered having it as my main course with a side!! Flatbread was yummy as well. The three of us all ordered different dishes. The fish of the day was wonderful. We asked for sauce on... More

The Loft has become a local favorite. Good food, good wait-staff. Busy and energized. Food is really imaginative and good (the shrimp tacos have become a favorite), the burgers are good and the scallops & shrimp are good, the crowd is a mix of all ages but alive and having fun, enjoy sitting at the bar to both eat &...

The food is always great. I normally had the fish special. Be sure to ask about it. The filet is also really good. They do use a lot of butter to sautee vegetables, but they can steam them too! Great place to eat in downtown Columbus.

Get there early to avoid a cover charge but remember to order drinks and take care of your server. Our second visit here and it was even better than the first. We were seated in the area where the band plays-which by the way is a great set up. What I love about The Loft is that they seem to... More
