Great dinner with the family. We were surprised to find out it was Restaurant Week. A few of us ordered from the special restaurant week menu. The house and spinach salads were great. I ordered the beef medallions and they were cooked perfectly. My husband ordered the ahi tuna dinner and it was very good. My daughters ordered fish and... More

An old Cigar shop turned into a well placed, comfortable, classy bar. The beers I tried were all well above average and the food, from what I could see, smell and taste, was original and well chosen. I had the Sauerkraut Balls, and, they were much better than they sounded. Big portions also.

The food came relatively quickly for my group of 7 although the restaurant was not busy. I had the fish and chips but the group favourites were the steak and the ribs. If you are not a big eater maybe split a meal. The portions are very large.

We stopped here on a Thursday night and the restaurant was not real full. We ordered from the menu and after a short time, the waitress came back and informed us they didn't have any of what we ordered left. So we ended up going with sandwiches. The sandwiches weren't bad at all and I would definitely eat there again.... More

I absolutely loved the interior of this old theater turned brewery. It's been renovated to perfection, the bar is gorgeous, and it's in a great location in the heart of downtown Columbus. However, it's a shame that the beer isn't better, and the food was pretty mediocre for the price. I would recommend stopping in for a beer, just to... More

We spent several weeks in Columbus for work and the Elevator Brewery was very close to our hotel. The architecture of this historic building is extraordinary. We found the Elevator Brewery to be very busy almost every night of the week, but rarely did we have to wait very long for a table. The food is very good as is... More

Food was good but so disappointed in the service. Server was unattentive and indifferent. Took over 30 minutes just to get dessert. Won't be back soon.

Every time we eat here it is always good. They do above job with a quick lunch for a business meal. The menu is good and it's even better if it's after work and you can pair it with one of their brews. Servers are always friendly and efficient.
