Had a large group reservation - they had a table waiting for us and were very accommodating. Great beers, cocktails, and good food. Would go back again!

I LOVE this place. If I lived in Columbus, I'd be there A LOT. Beautiful, historic building with amazing details inside: intricate mosaic tile floor, carved wood bar crafted around 1897, detailed mouldings, stained glass, etc. It's like having great beer and food in an art museum. Quinoa salad, fish tacos, and burger were all excellent. My favorite beer there... More

For a brewery, the most boring set of taps I have ever seen. Next ... liking hoppy, hoppy, hoppy ... I was disappointed to see many beer descriptions with "but not too hoppy" "without the hop overload of many IPAs" "but not too hoppy" "mild hop levels" it is obvious these guys don't like hops! Starting with the Big Vic... More

I called ahead for a group of 11, they were very accommodating, even when we had to adjust the arrival time. Our wait staff had no trouble with individual bills. The food is good-I had the pulled pork sandwich. Even though it wasn't dry, it could be a bit "saucier", but that is me!

Good brews and even better food make this a swanky little spot. I love the old, art deco vibe going on. The beers are all local; mostly lagers and IPAs. Best pulled pork sandwich I've ever had! One of my favourite places in Columbus, highly recommend!

We came to the Elevator just a week ago and loved it so we had to come back again - 167 miles just for dinner! It was that good. Our waiter, David, was awesome and explained everything and made recommendations on beer and drinks! I had the Rock Filet - totally awesome!! The White Linen is an awesome drink -... More

Snobby Wolverine fan from Ann Ann Arbor came down to visit to see what all the fuss is about in Columbus. Lots of places to chose for dinner and a brewski so we settled on the Elevator. The atmosphere was old world like...stained glass windows, oak bar, tile floor , kinda dark. Menu had broad selection...quinoa salad to ice Berg... More

A family dinner of 18 was managed very well. Servers got the meals right and were spot on in handling the complexities of all the separate bills. In terms of the food, everyone enjoyed and there was a huge variety of meals chosen. This is a good place to visit while visiting downtown Columbus.

I did not eat here, only had there beer and it was not good. I came with a group of 12 and almost every beer was sampled and nobody gave their beer high ratings. The food may be good, but the beer is not.
