Sunday arrived and brunch was suggested. I recalled "days of ole'" from a pretty magnificent brunch spread at the Polaris Grill when we used to live in Westerville. I quickly checked tripadvisor and the most recent reviews were average to poor. I wanted to give them a second chance. We arrived 1230, the place was NOT full. Greeted warmly and... More

What a fantastic lunch. Food, service, and ambiance was wonderful. We made an extra trip back to enjoy lunch again after our road trip from Cleveland to Cincinnati. Staffed by the original owners and staff that make your visit special.

We had dinners that I'd characterize as overpriced & over spiced. We had beef short ribs, and those are unusual to get on a dinner menu. It was cooked to "fall off the bone" tenderness, bilirubin was still sinuey and stringy. The sauce was dominated by pepper, and the roast tomatoes were coated in, you guessed it, pepper. I'd give...

For all the good reviews, nice place and pricey menu I expect more flavor in what we had. My wife and I came here for our anniversary dinner. I got the filet which was a little overbooked, but just lacked simple flavor that they served it with a side of sauce. Not what I expected. My wife got the walleye... More

Some friends chose this place while we were in town visiting due to proximity to our hotel. The reviews were good so we were looking forward to a nice dinner with friends. We had an 8:00 reservation on Saturday evening and were seated promptly. The restaurant was not full but there were several tables filled. Wait service was okay, but... More

We didn't have reservations but we were lucky enough to be seated quickly. Every staff member was polite, pleasant, and smiling! The food was perfectly prepared. They have an extensive wine list for every taste and budget. We definitely will be returning to the Polaris Grill.

The food was pretty good, but we were one of the only ones in the restaurant at the time and service was slow. Expected quicker service for how empty the restaurant was

Whenever I get a chance I look forward to the Polaris Grills Halibut. It has a crispy outside with a hint of orange. This has to be the best piece of fish I have ever found. I only wish I knew how to make it myself. This last visit for us was in July and we choose to sit outside... More
