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!

Great food and bar with live music

I have been to the loft for dinner in the past and the food is fantastic. Last week we were at the Loft to see a friend play in a Tom Petty tribute band upstairs in the bar. Everyone had a great time, the band rocked!

We went to the Pub for a late dinner. We were a group of 7 so there was a little bit of a wait but not more than 10 minutes. It was about 7PM and they were full. Once seated they waited on us promptly. The waiter was very attentive and came to check on us a lot. The food... More

The Loft was suggested to me by a friend that knew we were in the area. I'm really glad we ate here. I had the pork chop...it was cooked perfect and tasted delicious. My son had the Tilapia and he loved it. The place was packed and loud, but the atmosphere was really cool and the service was great.

Friday night with three friends after running Cut Bait rapids on Chattahoochee. Attentive wait staff and good martini, but they were out of Beefeater gin. We arrived after 9:30 pm, so they ran out of the crab cake special on the sidewalk board that drew us in. Had black angus burger and was expertly cooked medium rare with side of... More

The Loft is a fancier restaurant in the uptown area of Columbus. We had to wait on a Friday night about 20 minutes for dinner but our food and service were excellent. I had the Buffalo shrimp and grits and they were yummy.

Pricey but good. The meatloaf is amazing. Always packed on weekends so go early and parking is tight in the downtown area.

If you want to have a night you'll never forget, visit 'The Loft' at uptown Columbus, GA. It is the best place to kick back and enjoy live music, standup comedy, awesome dinning and meet new people. The staff is friendly and the service is great when not full. Make reservations ahead of time for best seats. It gets crowded... More

I've been to the Loft so many times and so many ways. The last time was for a concert to benefit the Ma Rainey house. White folks played the blues for a dead black woman to a room full of white people. I've had steak dinners there, and desserts and happy hours and late-night martinis and I've been to concerts...

We visited the Loft Saturday night. There was a 20 minute wait so we sat at the bar until our table was ready. Chase and Patrick were great - very friendly and made great app suggestions. The Sweet Potato nachos were delicious!!! For dinner we had the pork chop (amazing!) and scallops and shrimp dish! Our server Richard was very... More

My husband and I are really REALLY big fans of this restaurant. My husband is currently stationed at Fort Benning and he has lost count on the number of times he's visited this establishment. His favorite meal: Unstuffed Chicken. He said it's hands-down one of the best entrees he's ever tasted. We both agree that their appetizer, Buffalo Chicken Dip,... More
