The Loft offers a fantastic combination of food and drink with entertainment. It is my favorite place to dine out in Columbus! The shrimp and grits and the ribeye are perfectly cooked, and the vegetables are crisp, not cooked to mush as is the Southern tradition. There is a fabulous vegetable plate too. There is live music which varies over... More

I have been to The Loft on several occasions, for lunch and dinner and the food never fails. It is always fresh, well seasoned and satisfying. The restaurant is always clean and the service is usually attentive. If you want fresh, try one of their salads!

It was great. We went on Valentine 2015, without a reservation and still were seated in the upstairs part. I was given a rose when I entered. The food was delish. I want to visit again.

The Loft is locally and owned and operated. It has an upstairs and downstairs with elevator access. The food is delicious. There is a bar for those who drink. There is comfortable seating along the wall. The other seats are hard wooden chairs, high and low top tables. Entertainment is upstairs and you can eat up there as well. Very... More

The food here is worth the wait. I have been a few times and haven't been disappointed yet. A little pricey but as long as you go in knowing that it's well worth the extra it cost

My favorite dish at the loft is the unstuffed chicken! Their seafood specials are also delicious and they make the best dirty martini in town!

The Loft is a 2 level restaurant with a live music venue upstairs. Amazing food, friendly service, and delicious drinks mixed with an atmosphere you won't find anywhere else at the hub of Uptown Columbus! The Loft is a Columbus Uptown favorite, a family run business rooted in local history since 1992, combining food, fun, and music in a scrumptious and unique way. It has always been our family's goal to share with our patron's quality and value in a casual atmosphere. In short, if you love extraordinary food, the best in live entertainment plus a warm and welcoming service staff, come spend the evening with us!
