I have been here several times and have found it hit or miss. The most recent visit was for restaurant week. This trip sealed the deal not to come back. Right off the bat we were made (by the manager, not a hostess) to wait for a two person table when there were several four person tables no one at... More

We like going to this little gem in German Village, when we want something like wraps, salads, chicken salad (yum), mac and cheese, etc. Atmosphere is cozy.

So glad we stopped at the Old Mohawk. Last evening in Columbus for a friendly, delicious dinner. Ordered 2 special items on menu and meals were fabulous. Portions were large and tasty. Even took out desserts to go. As soon as I saw waitress going by with both the Million Dollar and Pumpkin Roll we had to take back to... More

We came for dinner because of all the good reviews. The restaurant is eccentrically decorated with local arts. It has a down to earth old and comfortable atmosphere. Service was friendly and efficient. But the food was just very average street food like, nothing to rave about. Every dish was covered with thick layers of cheese. That’s their culinary fame....

Nestled in the heart of German Village is a classic neighborhood establishment that reminds one of the 1980's show Cheers. A wonderful place to meet friends for a quick bite and social time in an atmosphere that welcomes the casual dinner to those looking for a nightcap after a night on the town. A very well balanced menu offering something... More

Great bar tenders and the food is very very good. This is the best bag for your buck in German Village. Walking distance from about everything and we never miss when we stay at the Guesthaus.

When Schmidt's down the street had over an hour wait, we came here and got seated right away. As it turns out, we all enjoyed our meal--nice beer selection, interesting menu variety, and some cool history to the place. We would recommend coming here, even if Schmidt's is available.

Have heard about The Mohawk, one of the real Columbus classics, for years. Been serving for over 70 years. We weren't disappointed! Soft tacos were superb and there are lots of entree choices... Vegetarian, burgers, Mexican, German. Accommodating and pleasant service.

I can honestly say I have never had s bad meal at the Old Mohawk. Just wish I had more reason to get into this neighborhood. I would definitely stop in more often. Had the French dip and it was one of the best I've ever eaten.

Thank Radjeff
