One of the better Old Bags

In Columbus, there are a number of restaurants trying to corner the 'mediocre Irish pub' market, and usually Claddagh and Brazenhead do a better job of it. However the Old Bag of Nails in Gahanna is quite good, with better than average service, reasonable prices, and all you can eat fish every day... read more

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.

The fish and chips are great, and all you can eat every day of the week. My favorite day is Wednesday for the all you can eat shrimp. Fried, grilled, blackened any way you want it. Excellent

The fish and chips were ordered on the phone for pick-up at a specified time. I got there a few minutes early and waited. The food came out at the specified time. It was still very hot when I got it home. Great portions, enough for two meals with a side salad.

The food, beer, service and decor were average. Not poor but also not memorable either. Going to have to step up their game to compete with newer places opening on the area.

This is a place I would consider going to again and again. Any time I'm in the Gahanna area I will make sure I stop by. The service was great, atmosphere was fantastic and the food was incredible! I didn't expect such good food from a pub, but it was delicious! This is also a really nice area to walk... More

This Pub has several locations in the Columbus, Ohio and surrounding areas. I have been to a few of them and always had a great experience. My most recent visit was a small wedding ceremony, here at the Gahanna location. Here they have a separate building you can reserve for small events; and you don't pay for the use of... More

There was a group of us in town for a funeral. We were staying at the airport so I really just chose this restaurant based on it's proximity to our hotel and the menu. I called the day before we were to arrive and asked if it were possible to get a table for 10 people. The manager said he... More

Group of six on a week night. Got seated right away. Drink orders in quick. Food orders took just a bit longer then I expected, but they were all FANTASTIC. Lots of food for the price. Great desserts
