Well we can say we have been there.

Stopped in for a late lunch. Was thinking a big steak but settled for the Worthington steak. Little but quite tasty. Not a place you want to be in a hurry. Ran out of bread so never got a second helping - even though it was very good - the butter that came with it was wonderful.

I had the soup of the day and a BLT and was pleasantly surprised at the quality of all ingredients. The service is outstanding and you feel right at home while dining.

I have been to the Worthington Inn numerous times for various reasons. It truly is a unique dining experience unlike any other in Columbus. I've lived in Columbus for six years and like to come here to celebrate special occasions or bring out of town guests because I've always had a memorable and enjoyable trip. Friends and I also usually... More

Birthday party of ten at neat historic victorian, disappointed in table wedged into a corner making access difficult. The food was ok, but horribly overpriced. I had a vegetable plate that was barely tepid when served, I prefer chilled veggies cold and hot hot, not one homogenous temp. Maybe lunch for two is more manageable for the cook.

We love to sit outside and enjoy food and wine. It is wonderful. They have a great menu of salads and starters. No kids menu although my kids can usually find something that pleases them.

This restaurant is located in an old house. Well maintained. Very good menu items. Probably couldn't go wrong with any. I had filets and my friends had a fish entrée with small salads. Large wine and beer selection. Beer was cold.

What a terrific Thursday evening meal we had. Amanda was our server and she was terrific. The menu was interesting and they had a very good pork dish on special. The wine list had some reasonably priced wines and we were told they knock 30% off the bottle price on Thursdays. The six of us still spent $330 with tip,... More

We have dined here before - for this meal we were with elderly family members who have difficulty hearing in loud restaurants - the dining room here works well because there is usually not a lot of background noise. Menu is extensive and interesting. Food was very good. Odd thing this night was that another server ended up chatting with... More

We couldn't find a place to have a late dinner on a busy evening in downtown Worthington. We lucked upon an opening on the porch @ The Worthington Inn. Our hostess found us the perfect spot...across from all the activity in town..just perfect so we thought. Unfortunately for us we had a waiter that ruined the perfect setting. The meal... More

This was a nice place for a Sunday Brunch. I wouldn't rate it excellent because I didn't feel there was anything amazing on the menu to choose from. The coffee was just so-so. We enjoyed our service and meal but we'll probably eat at another local spot next time we come to this area. I do feel this might be... More
