Very good on service and ambience

I'm rating this very good only because of service and ambience, not the food. We were in the third floor function room for a large business dinner. The atmosphere and decor is delightful, with a stunning chandelier in the centre of the ceiling. The staff were very welcoming and attentive, and the... read more

I took my family here for brunch to celebrate my wife's birthday on Sunday, March 15. We have two small boys (3 and 5) and opted to sit in the pub area away from the main dining room in case they decided to act up. The food, service and friendliness of the staff were all spectacular. We will definitely return... More

Try them out for happy hour on the porch in warm months; good service and high quality food. A little dressy for inside dining.

The Worthington Inn is one of the original and the only remaining inn in Worthington on the north side of Columbus. It retains the architecture and ambiance of the turn of the (last) century. The rooms have been converted into condominiums but the restaurant remains offering excellent food and great service. Chef Tom Smith focuses on local, contemporary fare from... More

Lunch in this old Victorian hotel and restaurant was wonderful. Great food, service (waitress only) and charming character inside of an old Victorian home. CONS: A little pricey, and rude receptionist/bartender gave me the stern once-over because I was dressed in jeans. Had the nerve to lie to me that the dining room was full and suggested that I eat...

This restaurant offers the perfect atmosphere for those who enjoy Traditional decor in Historic settings; professional waitstaff and quiet surroundings. Classical music plays softly in the background. Be prepared to climb up some stairs to get to the dining rooms, though. They used to offer a wonderful Sunday Brunch buffet, which we greatly miss. However, they still put on a... More

Had lunch on Friday (party of 5). Not crowded. Good service. Very pleasant atmosphere in an older building with lots of character. Parking available behind the building. My wife and I enjoyed the crab cakes.

I have eaten here many times for lunch and dinner as I live in Worthington and it is very easy to get to. There is plenty of parking. The restaurant is housed in a 200 year old inn and period decorated. I have never had a bad meal here. The Executive Chef Thomas Smith knows what he is doing and... More
