The reviews all said this was a great place, and they were right! We stopped in for dinner after reading the reviews, and split one of their daily dinner specials and then capped off the meal with an amazing piece of Carrot Cake! All awesome!

Excellent service and food. If you like German Chocolate Cake you must try "The Loft's". It is excellent. My wife was highly pleased with her cheesecake.

Neat atmosphere with excellent food. The wait was too long to sit outside and enjoy the beautiful weather, so we sat upstairs and had a great meal. The waitress was super nice and the food was wonderful. There's a stage upstairs for music and a band was setting up as we were leaving. Great place for dinner in the downtown... More

If going on weekend, suggest early (before 6 EST). Pasta dish is excellent! Order a dessert to share or if you dare one for yourself! I have not ever had a bad experience here.

Be seated inside or out. We chose out on a beautiful evening. Lots of activity with live music at an adjacent restaurant. Ordered the grouper special with salad and potatoes. Done to perfection. There is great selection of craft beers on tap and more in the bottle. Excellent attentive service. Not to be missed.

The atmosphere is bar casual but the food is a step above. The service is friendly. Wes was our waiter and couldn't have been more helpful. We were pleasantly surprised at the offerings on the menu beyond obvious bar food. Both the fish special and chicken were delicious.

My son graduated from basic and we all went to eat here. I had the filet which was seasoned very well. My mom had the ribeye which was quite big, so she had plenty to take back to our hotel. Everyone enjoyed their food and we had a very nice waiter.

We made a reservation for 8 people and they were able to accommodate us. We had a variety of dietary needs (gluten free, dairy free and vegetarian) that had no trouble fulfilling those needs. The service was fantastic and all of our meals were tasty.

Thank Jessica P

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!
