BBQ Ribs are excellent.

Had a lot of BBQ ribs in many parts of the country but the Polaris Grill BBQ Ribs are the best. Try their Oregon Wild Mushroom Bisque and 55 House Salad. Both are excellent. Recommend booth dining in the bar. The main restaurant area is a bit noisy when they are busy.

We had such a great experience. I had never been there, my husband only for lunch, so we finally decided to go. At first we tried to make reservations for Saturday night, but because it was restaurant week, they were already booked, so we went on Sunday instead. They extended restaurant week an extra night, so I ordered the filet... More

We have always heard really good things about the Polaris Grill, so my wife and I decided to take advantage of Cbus Restaurant Week and give it a try. I feel like I wasted my CRW night out. It was fine, just fine. I was expecting a lot more. Overall the restaurant is quite nice and comfortable inside but maybe... More

We went to Polaris Grill for New Years Eve with reservations for 7 p.m. We were greeted very warmly and upon exit they were kind enough to take a picture of our group (4 family members). The service was good, and the food was.........average especially for the price. I think it would be worth going one more time during a... More

This was my first visit to the Polaris Grill. My wife and grown son had already been there. The interior is pleasantly decorated with great pictures and accessories high on the walls. My wife and I both had the crab cakes salad. The crab cakes were excellent. I found the salad to contain too little dressing (it was a vinaigrette).... More

I am often in Columbus for meetings and this is a perfect spot for dinner on the way home to Cleveland. It is the same exit as Polaris but then you turn right and tucked away behind the gas station is this oasis. It is usually crowded but they always find a tabpe or a chair. The service is very...

We celebrated my daughter's 20 something birthday and all four of us had a great meal. The waiter was wonderful and everything was perfect. A fun fact is they give a jar of their salad dressing to people celebrating their birthday.

Great food and service! Although it is repeated all over this and other sites- you must try the house salad dressing.

I've been going to the Polaris Grill for years and have never had a less than excellent meal. A recent lunch was a party of 2 in the bar area. We had a pizza and the fried perch special. Both were prepared just as ordered and were delicious. Our server was very attentive and helpful in describing various menu options.... More
