Our party of three was in the mood to try everything. From the meatloaf (TWO meals worth!) to the Shrimp Banh Mi Wrap, it was all excellent. We also tried a flight of local beer, the Seriously Big Chocolate Cake (more than enough for 3 people), and the Pepperone Flat Bread. With exception of overly salted fries (we were served... More

This is a regular stop in Columbus- either location (there is one on the East Side as well). Great food- particularly like the Turkey burger, and the rice side dish is different, and excellent!

Stopped in the afternoon for some Wings. Very good. Ordered a piece of Blue Berry pie To-Go on the advice of our server. Got home later and the pie was undercooked. The crust was gooey and doughy and couldn't eat it. Disappointing, this time. Normally CCD is very good.

I have no idea how our order arrived as quickly as it did but it was very good. Chicken parmigiana, pasta with sauce. The waiter was rushed off his feet seeing to all his tables! We went late on a Thursday and they were still almost packed. It's a fun atmosphere that doesn't serve traditional diner fare.

We were in Columbus for the weekend to take our son to the zoo and the Central Ohio Firehouse Museum. It was his birthday so we thought we would go all out for dinner and stop somewhere my coworkers had raved about. It was also recommended by other Columbus residents earlier that day. The restaurant is easy to find, but... More

THis was the first restaurant during my trip to Columbus and it was phenomenal. I ordered the most famous dish, the meatloaf which was exquisite. The portion was very generous and could be for two people but I managed to finish the plate myself. The meat was delicious and the mashed potatoes were perfect. Service was quick and efficient. HIghly... More

A colleague who went to OSU years ago took us here. The cozy atmosphere, good food and good beer did not disappoint.

I have been here many many times and it is a wonderful spot. I especially love Sunday Brunches with Mimosas and ON Sundays only, they give iced home made rolls with the meals! Honestly, if the food were not just That Good, I'd eat the rolls only and take my food to Go!

We enjoyed the car décor and the restaurant was fun. The food was very good and the service was phenomenal. I would definitely recommend this place and I will go back. I had southern fried chicken, mashed potatoes, green beans, very good. My daughter had the meatloaf. It was delicious. Enjoy!

We went to Cap City, Grandview to celebrate a birthday. The staff from the hostess to our waitress was very nice. Our orders came out in good time and everyone enjoyed their meal. The atmosphere was fun, good music overhead. It was very cold in the restaurant, so you may want to have a sweater on hand. I'd recommend this... More
