I always give restaurants two chances, and so it is with this place. I usually do not review places that are near where I live, but I thought this deserved one. The first time I was here was unispiring, especially the food. So after the second visit, here are my observations.
Pros: Big open space, well decorated and clean. Menu is good, especially for lunch. Certain items are MUCH bettter thah others. Their Beef on weck sandwich is outstanding, maybe the best I have ever had. Anything chicken is not good.
Cons: I think this place is getting caught up in the Central Ohio death spiral. It wants to be something more, with the name, and the rat pack stuff and tucked leather booths. But when you walk in, you realize that it is just a sports bar with TV's all over the place.
I hope this place survives, but since I have made a living gambling, the bet is that it won't. Too much temptation to sell chicken wings, beer, and put up OSU memorbilia. My advice would be to either go all the way, or pull the plug.
