“An old tradition”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

We have been going to The Top for two decades and never really had anything to complain about until our last two visits. Sadly, the service was AWFUL and the food, well, just not up to their standards. They have expanded the restaurant to accommodate more customers without figuring out how to service them at the same level. Hope they get their act together again.

“One of the best-kept secrets in Columbus”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

My biggest disappointment about this neighborhood gem is that I didn't know about it sooner! Get ready to step back in time when you walk through the door...you'll feel like you've been transported to 1960's Las Vegas -- complete with the Rat Pack. The one-page laminated menu is definitely old-school, but the cuts of steak are second-to-none. Unfortunately, the prices have adjusted upwards since 1960, but all-in-all, you will not be disappointed, especially when compared to the other top-grade steakhouses in the Columbus area. Reservations are definitely a good idea, as this restaurant gets packed quickly.
