Loved The Food

Each of us had something different and all of was excellent. My halibut was orange horseradish encrusted...I could taste the orange but not the horseradish. Most people wouldn't care but I love horseradish! The service was excellent as well...there were seven of us and the waitress was quick to... read more

Looking forward to going again soon.

Its also withing walking distance of our hotel so didnt have to worry about driving. You definitely need to reserve ahead of time as it can become busy. Ate there both nights we were in town. The...

Have you ever had to make a reservation for 25 people for an hour from your call? Two large chain restaurants turned us down but not POLARIS GRILL! They welcomed us, found us a separate space, served us great food and drinks for adults of all ages and children as young as 4! I am SO grateful to this manager... More

We live nearby Polaris Grill and it has become one of our favorite local restaurants. So many great things to share about this place. Terrific Kids' menu, including kids' portion of ribs, steak, mini burgers and chicken. Their fries are some of my FAVs. Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights feature the best prime rib I've ever tasted! It is thick,... More

My daughter took me there for a late breakfast! She had waffles...I had the bananas foster French toast. Both were excellent! It wasn't packed at 11:30. Service was a tad slow....but worth going! Check it out!

I was in the mood for crab cakes. Having received some very bad crab cakes in the past, I searched online for best crab cakes in the Columbus area. Polaris Grill came up with many great reviews. At the restaurant, I started with their 55 salad. Very good. My crab cakes arrived. You get 3 crab cakes for the $24... More

We go to Polaris Grill several times a year. This visit six of us were there. We shared a pane appetizer and had filet, chicken, pork chop, salmon, walleye, and seared tuna salad as entrees. Each was very well prepared and reasonably priced. Service was outstanding. PG is a reliable very good restaurant.

We stopped here on a recommendation and we were more than satisfied by the service, food and atmosphere. Our waiter, Christopher, was professional and added numerous suggestions between the beer and the food. He consistently checked on us and continued to make various suggestions as the timing of meals passed. Up to date, clean and definitely a nice establishment. When... More

We've come here a number of times over a period of a few years. It can be loud and difficult to have a conversation. As one might imagine, the service depends on the server. On our last visit it was fairly slow. However, having said all that, the constant is that we have never been disappointed in the quality or... More
