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.

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

The absolute best stake in town!!! We have traveled near and far and the Elevator's Rock filet is always amazing! And the building is delightful

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
