If I had to say anything negative, it would... More

Tried this out based on the reviews. Ate at the bar. Bartender convinced me to try the wreck fish special and even chose my sides for me! Dinner was excellent & the service was beyond perfect! Highly recommend!! They also have an upstairs area where they play live music.

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!
