4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2014 NEW

On a recent business trip to Columbus one of my colleagues who had been here previously recommended Elevator for dinner. The restaurant was relatively uncrowded at 8:30 p.m. on a Thursday evening and we were seated immediately. The space features some wonderful old architectural details, including a colorful mosaic floor, beautiful mahogany bar, and huge stained glass windows. When I... More

I sat at the bar and had the red ale and nut brown ale with the salmon. Excellent meal and great service! The environment was great.

I recently ate at the Elevator Brewery & Draught on a trip to Columbus. It was recommended by the concierge at my hotel. The restaurant is located in a renovated old movie theater, which made for a unique decor. The food was average, as was the service. The menu was nothing special and did not contain anything that was unique.

On 2/1/2014 at 7:44 PM I had my first and will be my only visit to the Elevator Brewing & Draught Haus. I had the worst service I can remember. I am 62 years old and well known for my tipping generosity but this is one of two times in my life where I did not leave a tip. It... More

We stumbled upon this place for dinner, not knowing we were walking into a well known restaurant. We had to wait over an hour for dinner, but it was well worth the wait (next time we'll make reservations). The food was an experience, my filet was cooked at my table and was a delicious meal. The waitress was outstanding and... More

A fantastic old building (for the USA!), serving a good range of beers and food. A very popular venue, very busy on both the occasions we called in. In the evening we had a very pleasant meal, which more than filled us up. There was a wait of around half an hour for a table, but we got a seat... More

Located south of the arena district on the west side of High St. between Spring and Long Streets. Old, "shotgun style" bar decorated very nicely with tin ceiling, decorative plaster cove, stained glass and wainscoting which looks like it was salvaged from a 19th century church. The waitstaff is courteous, quick and personable. The chef knows his stuff here. What... More

Consistently great food, truly fantastic beer. Wonderful atmosphere and design of the bar and overall style. Always a favorite of mine when I come here on business. Had a great salmon tonight.

Ate here with a friend, we both really enjoyed our dinners. We both got sandwiches and french fries, they were good. We each got a beer too, I liked them both. Our waitress was very friendly and when we asked about the history of the building (the inside is really cool it's interesting to look around) she told us all... More
