Spent one night in Columbus recently and asked the hotel for recommendations for a casual dinner. They suggested Tip Top. The restaurant itself is strangely decorated but the food was very good. Our server, and those who helped her, were all attentive and polite. Our cheese dip appetizer with pita bread was good and there was enough for our party... More

I had heard many good reviews about this restaurant and I wasn't disappointed. They have a great menu and the roast beef was out of this world.

Wasn't too loud for a lunch crowd. The plate of nachos was enormous and lunch portions were generous over all. Worth the stop if you're in downtown columbus.

We used TA to help us find somewhere to eat, close to our downtown Columbus hotel. Once again, not disappointed! The waitress explained the pot roast was their signature dish, so I tried the pot roast sandwich. It was delicious! One friend ordered a reuben, another had a steak sandwich. The food was so hot when it was brought out... More

Went there with friends. I had their signature dish, the 'blue ribbon pot roast'. The portion was huge and for that price, it was absolutely a burgain. The beef itself though was a bit dry and not very soft, meaning that they probably didn't cook it long enough. Overall, I would expect better from a signature dish, but if for... More

This restaurant has GREAT food. The service was fast and friendly. I do have to say, when I walked in I was overwhelmed with all of the "stuff" and by how dark it was. Once I had a second or two to get my bearings, I really enjoyed the experience.

Maybe somewhat overrated - the cocktails we had were only average, and the signature dish was rather dry - but we liked the place. The appetizer homemade chips were nice, as well as the pork jerk and the draft beers. Just sitting outside and relaxing was fun!

Good food, great drinks, staff was super. Gay Street is a great downtown location for the Tip Top. Lovely outdoor seating on a perfect Columbus August day.

My daughter suggested we go here for dinner recently. It was amazing! The ambiance of the place is warm, with original tin roof tiles and velvet draperies and lighting that makes it a comfortable environment. Their cocktails are wonderful, great selection of beer, and the food is just incredible!!! Try their signature sandwich, the Tip Top Pot Roast sandwich....you won't... More
