Just had a lunch meeting here today. The place is crowded and noisy, but not so much that you can't have a meeting while eating. Our waiter was wonderful, attentive, but not pushy. And he did a great job keeping our glasses full. I had the baked mac and cheese and an iced tea. The entree was fine, although nothing... More

While wandering around German Village we stopped for lunch at the Old Mohawk. I had the half salad/sandwich combo with the Nature Salad and the Mother Mohawk sandwich. The salad was fresh and delicious, while the sandwich was a seemingly odd combination of roast beef, chicken salad, and cheese that was pleasantly tasty. Service was friendly and quick. This place...

Went here and it was a success. The food was very good and everyone enjoyed their meal. The food was inventive and good. They were able to handle substitutions easily. The wine and beer list was great and the server was patient albeit a bit slow. We would definitely come again.

Stopped for a quick lunch at the Mohawk. Great atmosphere for a beer and a brat. Loved the potato pancakes along with the drier than normal, but tasty, sauerkraut. Good selection of beers on tap. Almost like being at home with a bunch of buddies. Laid back, friendly atmosphere. Attentive server. Well maintained in the German Village section of Columbus.

Located in a building from 1906, this German Village tradition was a place I had never been, until this weekend. Loved the old brick walls, and the friendly atmosphere. Food was excellent, as was the service. Varied menu, turtle soup, yummy cakes. This place was a speakeasy back in Prohibition, and has been serving up food and drinks for decades.... More

My wife and I decided to try this place on a complete whim since we were in the neighborhood. Schmidt's was too crowded and we wanted to try something different. What a great surprise tucked into German Village. Good beer selections, a very good food selection (though we both had the crabcake special), and the dessert variety was beyond the... More

I have been coming here for 30 years. You must try the Turtle Soup and grilled cheese sandwich. Nice bar. Always good service. Nice neighborhood place.

This is a popular watering hole for law students at Capital University. The food is great and the atmosphere is truly German Village.
