"Divey"...in a good way

This is a true neighborhood bar with a great beer selection and good food. There's plenty of room to move around and a dart board and pool table if you need a diversion. The service has always been good.

Very good variety of very tasty food. A good value. Waitpersons are pleasant and competent. For all those who love lawyers and judges, this is the place.

Hubby and I stopped here for a late night drink, about 11:30 on a Sunday. They had a nice crowd, mixed age group, some quiet a few rowdy but not bothersome. The bartender was great, quick with the drink, friendly and chatty. The menu was big and looked pretty good though we did not order any food, not sure if... More

Barmaid was friendly & efficient, didn't mind that we kept bugging her for quarters to play pool. Great beer selection. Food looked OK, too, but we had already eaten. Should we find ourselves in Columbus again, we'll go back.

Had a very pleasant experience at High-Beck Tavern. I walked in expecting that stale beer stench mixed with dirty shoes and vomit - and instead found a fresh-aired, CLEAN bar that had all the charm of a dive bar but none of the grime and dust (even the shelving was clean without dust bunnies visible). The food was good -... More

I've been going to this place for many years and it just seems to get a little better. My only complaint used to be the bands--too loud for the space. However, that is no longer the case and it's a great place to hang with friends and grab a bite.

We were staying a at a downtown hotel and just didn't feel like dealing with the traffic/chaos on campus, so we walked down to the High-Beck Tavern to watch an 8pm Buckeyes game. It was a great choice for the evening! They had many good screens, most of which were tuned to the OSU game, and had the volume on.... More

Very interesting, nothing fancy. Ordered a pizza- ate half there, took rest back to hotel. It was pretty good other than the bottom of crust was cooked to much. I wouldn't hesitate to go back.

My girlfriend and I walked in to this tavern to get a drink. The atmosphere is cool but the service wasn't great. We did not try the food only drinks. They had a large number of beers on tap and a very nice sized bar. If your looking for a place to get a drink this isn't a bad place... More
