Met old friends here on a Saturday night and had a great meal. The service was very good and the table was a good size for the 6 of us. We ate in the bar area and it was loud and bustling. I had the famous 20oz Lobster tail which was the best I have ever had. It was cooked... More

Another outstanding dinner at The Top Steakhouse. The customer service was excellent, as was the food. You can count on a consistently great meal at The Top!

We met friends at The Top. We had not gone there in years. We were so pleased. It was dark inside. White tablecloths. Piano player. Like in the older movies.The service and food was impeccable. The steak was the best I've had in a very long time. No rushing, very leisurely dinner. The waitress did not mention the special offered... More

We had an outing with a group of friends and decided to go to the restaurant on Sunday evening. We have been there before and it and had excellent service food and whatever came our way during our visit. This time it wasn't so great as it was in the past. For the money that we spent on our meals... More

This restaurant has been on Main St., in what is actually Bexley, since 1955. My guess is that little has been in the way of decorating since it opened. Great prime rib if you like it on the rare side. (Although I've had what I ordered--prime rib, baked potato and salad---at Longhorn that was every bit as good for CONSIDERABLY... More

My wife and I went her for their Prix Fixe dinner this month. The dinner for 1 is $35 and dinner for 2 is $62. We were charged for 2 single dinners. My salad was OK and my wife's French onion soup was good. The prime rib was average at best. I ordered rare knowing it would only be medium... More

I'm absolutely surprised I've never heard of or been to the steakhouse before and I've lived in Columbus for 20+ years, going out to have dinner with friends we made reservations for us and we were not disappointed it's definitely old-school steakhouse probably not decorate it since the 1960s I kept looking for Don Draper to come in at any...

Great array of steak choices! Very high class. Low light. Music a classic. And a classic look and feel

We were debating where to go for my birthday when my wife's friend recommended this place. We went on a Wednesday around 5 PM. As previously noted, the interior is dark and a throwback to a bygone era. Hint:the "rat pack" is hanging in the men's room. My wife had previewed the menu and noted the deviled eggs with caviar...

The decor is a seventies throwback. I expect Don Draper to walk through with a martini every time I'm there. That said, everything about The Top is fabulous. Everything on the menu is fabulous, but I particularly like the BBQ ribs. The house salad is great with blue cheese and a tasty house dressing. The service is outstanding. Enjoy!
