An interesting detail? The place was supercrowded on the night (Friday) that I was there.

Despite the crowd, the servers were doing very well. The manager was doing nothing other than get in the way of the servers. And, since I thought my server was doing an excellent job, I gave her an out of the ordinary size tip. After I had gone outside to the parking area, she met me and said the... read more

Love their fish and chips. You can get all you want to eat or just a fish sandwich. The fish is light and flaky, never with a strong fish flavor

I found this exciting place while in town on business. I had heard through others that this was THE place to go for fish-n-chips, so after our meeting was over we decided to take the group over to experience this. It was a warm summer night so we chose to sit out on the patio by the outdoor bar. The... More

Good bar food. Better happy hour drinks. They tell me I have to write more but I don't think I have anything else to say today. There is that enough words.

I was in town on business and went here with a large crowd. The service was fairly quick. I had the grilled cheese and tomato soup on a very cold and blustery day. It was delicious! The environment is pub style but was quiet enough to carry on conversations. I would most definitely eat here again.

Perhaps no chain restaurant in the Central Ohio area has as much multiple personality issues as the Bag of Nails, a theme restaurant that generally competes with Claddagh to corner the 'Mediocre Irish Pub' market. The food wasn't terrible, and sticking to the staples like fish n chips or burgers will not steer you wrong, but the portion sizes seem... More

Went here for dinner with the girlfriend and some friends. Atmosphere: I really love the dark wood interior and the huge bar that takes up the middle of the main room. There are several booths along the south wall, some smaller tables on the south and north side of the main room. There's a larger room to the rear, a... More

To be fair, we were there with a large (50-ish) group, and ordered from a limited menu. Buffalo chicken sandwich was a bit dry, and a bit light on sauce. Barbecue chicken sandwich was similar. Mac and cheese from the kids menu was Kraft (or a lookalike). Service was very good though - very attentive, and everything kept straight in... More
