Having heard what a gem Top Steakhouse is, I took my daughter there last week. Firstly, the steak I had was perfectly cooked and very good but at $38 for a petite filet mignon it does not really compare in value to a Mitchell's Steakhouse or Morton's. From there everything was downhill. While apparently a Columbus institution, the sides were... More

Because my husband is from Columbus, every few years we return to The Top Steakhouse in Bexley, Ohio, and we are never disappointed. In fact, this last visit was totally impressive. The food, particularly the steaks and all the accompaniments were unbelievable and this day and age, it's so rare for a main course to come with two delicious sides.... More

They are celebrating their 60th anniversary and have not declined. I left Columbus more than 30 years ago. It was one of my favorites then & didn't disappoint on a recent return visit. The menu is varied & the prices fairly reasonable compared to where I now live, At least you still get a COMPLETE meal, rather than a piece... More

We had a business dinner last night at The Top Steakhouse and had a great evening! This is a classic, local place with a piano player between the bar and the main dining room playing jazz classics. Intimate tables in a darkened room - don't see that very often any more. Excellent steak and appetizers, friendly staff - worth another... More

This is my go to place for special occasions, even my kids request it now. We sat outside for Fathers Day dinner and it was delightful! We are thrilled to... More

This was my second visit to The Top and it has great service and absolutely fantastic food. I had the petite filet. I was in heaven. They cooked it exactly as I ordered it and it melted in my mouth. I'm hungry thinking about it.

A true classic steakouse with old world charm with the ambiance of the best of the more intimate Chicago steakhouses. The fare is delicious as you would expect, the cocktails poured generously and with care. Always a memorable time at the piano bar. Put The Top on your Bucket List of steakhouses, it won't disappoint. Dan and Christina

We dine at The Top usually once each year and are always reminded that we go for the ambiance and total experience. The menu is reminiscent of Bowman's Steak house here in Columbus although not quite the same caliber. Jack's is gone so for that 1960's flair of the restaurants in which I worked during that era, The Top is... More
