We chose the Patriot because it was conveniently located to our home in Lebanon. The service was great and the food was good. However, I thought it was a little too pricey for what they were serving in a place that felt a little more like a sportsbar than one that would support some of the high pricepoints. It's worth trying at least once to see what you think...

Just OK. Atmosphere was good and sincerely love the recgonition of the military both via decoration and special offers for deployment/welcome home celebrations on the menu (that alone counts for 1 star!). Food is somewhat overpriced for portions/quality. Presentation and food flavor was unremarkable - not bad just not noteworthy. Steak was cooked incorrectly 3 times even after discussed with server desire for pink center (1st very well done, then bloody and then well done again). Premium charge for what would be considered traditional sides at other steakhouses (loaded potato, caesar salad, etc.). Service was very slow although there was at least 1 larger party in the restaurant (waited to order ~15 min, had to wait for drink refills, asked for add'l dressing, never delivered, offered rolls with salad but never delivered). Offered dessert free due to # of meal re-cooks, presentation nice (brownie sundae) but brownie was tough...would have been better served warm. Overall, nothing I would go out of my way to go back for...better off to stick with an Outback or Montgomery Inn..will spend same money but far better quality and consistency in food and service.

Based on other TripAdvisor reviews we chose to stop here on our way back to Columbus from Cincinnati. Granted it was a busy Friday night, but the service was horrible. It took a very long time for our food to arrive. The waiter said the kitchen was very backed up. The food was good, but not great. My husband had a steak, I had scallops, and our teenage son had chicken wings. I would not go out of my way to stop here again.

We enjoy going to the Patriot, never had a bad meal. Its one of our personal favorites. Great steaks, soups and killer sweet potato fries.

This is an ok place to eat after we had dinner we were having a drink and the management came up to the four of us and asked us to leave because they wanted our table. We were st the restuant only 90 minutes and it propanly tool them 35 to 40 minutes to serve our food. My understanding they are new owners they sure do not have any idea of how to give good service
