My husband and I decided to stop in for breakfast during the Farmer's Market. After waiting ten minutes for our waiter to take our drink order, we waited another 15 minutes to place our food order. The waiter seemed so busy (though there were few occupied tables). Overall, we waited 45 minutes to get scrambled eggs and toast. While the... More

We had dinner to celebrate my birthday at Worthington Inn and we really enjoyed it. The menu may not be extensive or complex, but the simplicity of the dishes allows for quality ingredients and impeccable execution. The atmosphere and history of the establishment was also a big draw for us. We had attentive and good service.

My nephew got married and we celebrated after at The Worthington Inn. Our waiter, Patrick, gave us lots of attention. He was great with suggesting drinks and explaining items on the menu. Everyone absolutely loved their food. Patrick gave us a quick tour of place which was very interesting.

I've been to the worthington inn a few times for dinner with the family. It's usually quite busy on a Friday evening --- usually a good sign. The food tastes quite good, although nothing stands out in particular. On the most recent visit I had a filet, which was well prepared. The service is polite and efficient. The restaurant is... More

We enjoyed an excellent dinner for our wedding anniversary, superb fresh green beans and interesting twist on potatoes. House bread was excellent also. Should have passed on dessert, but decided to get the strawberry Molly, which was a mistake. Presentation was interesting, but the cake was dry, the strawberries were not very fresh, and the whipped cream not very good.... More

After I tripped on the outside stairs (there was a hazard), I watched and others tripped. They seemed more interested in liability than making me feel comfortable (I took down the hostess stand.) At the beginning of the month I had brunch. Not good. This trip (not the stairs!) brought a little better food. I do wish they'd refilled my... More

Lacey, We are sorry to hear that you were not pleased with your experience at The Worthington Inn. To officially reserve a private room, guests must sign a contract and put down their deposit, until then, the room is considered “on hold”. To be clear, the party in the room you had wanted was not another new booking but a... More

We took our entire family there and went back to our house for as my grandson said, Pies and Presents . Then we had time for Christmas Eve services at church. Only regret they were out of the hot buttered rum, but we survived. Was so much more relaxing for my husband and I who are 61.

In this historic inn is one of the finest restaurants in the greater Columbus area. I would recommend that any visitor to the Columbus area put it on their list of places to dine. Don't miss it!
