Crowded but worth the wait.

We've visited many times and they continue to provide great food, atmosphere and service only 2 miles from home. This is a nice bar and restaurant in the heart of Creekside. Fish & chips and burgers are some favorite specialties.

They have a great draft beer selection. The all you can eat fish tastes great, but I wish they had just a regular fish meal, because I don't eat much. Kind of a waste for me.

I have nothing to say other than the cheeseburgers are so good! Service is fast and friendly. Everything you expect from a fun, casual joint.

Old Bag and Nails' Fish and Chips is their signature entrée. The fish is cold water cod and the price ($12.95) is reasonable, considering the large serving size. And the menu choices are numerous. Service level was great. And they have happy our til 7 pm, at least on weekdays. Ask for patio seating if the weather is good.

Had dinner here and had a difficult time choosing what I wanted to eat. Ordered the clam strips and was pleased to be able to substitute the fried corn for the steak fries. Service was good, fast, and food enjoyable. Get the fried corn, it was excellent!

Dined here at the Old Bag Of Nails which is located at Creekside on Mill Street in Gahanna. Our server was very nice and friendly I ordered the fish and chips, and also draft beer. These are the best fish and chips I have had anywhere. We will return in the future.
