“Slowly getting worse”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

Hadn't been here in awhile...previous experiences were just average. We decided to give it another try and were completely underwhelmed. The food was okay, the service was...food delivery. The place was pretty cool originally, but just looks dated and shabby now. The cement floor and cavernous dining area perfectly amplified the sqalling small children whose parents were oblivious to the annoyed glances from other customers. This was our last visit.

“Decent food but cliquish, unfriendly patrons/staff at bar.”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

The food is adequate, but anytime I've ever eaten and drank at the bar I get very bad vibes. Patrons look at you when you come in like you don't belong there. I received a similar reaction when I tried to talk to a few of them. The bar crowd appears to be consistent.

The bartender that typically works couldn't seem to understand when I was attempting to use a coupon once and started to act like she was annoyed with me. She said it couldn't be used with drinks. Well, I had actually eaten as well. All she had to do was seperate the dinner and the drinks onto two seperate tickets, but she couldn't seem to comprehend that. Ultimately, I didn't get to use my coupon. Really, is it any different than having dinner in the dining room, using the coupon, and going to the bar and having drinks afterward? No, it's not.

I found that the attitude at this bar seems to be the prevalent attitude all across Columbus. Forget being accepted if you're not in their clique. Living there was the second worse two years of my life, and I ultimately left.
