Went here for lunch and asked the waiter what he would recommend and he said the pot roast..... wow it was the best pot roast I have had besides moms of course. Although the vegetables were not plentiful it was good. I also had a Georgia Mule which was my first mule and it was really good!

Stopper by after work with a friend and had a couple of drinks and good conversation with the people at the bar. Very relaxing and enjoyable.

Food is fresh & hearty - good eats - excellent service. Very nice for a Sunday morning brunch on a cold winter's day. Old bar atmosphere - high tables and booths available. Pot roast skillet very good - enough to be shared as it is quite filling.

Family shared the corn fritters -- so good we ordered a second round. I had the Cajun pasta. Delicious but both the mustard and the plentiful sausage are very rich; I might split this one if doing it again. Other dishes including the turkey burger and California club were also enjoyed. Also note -- my dish was delayed, which was... More

This bar serves great food. Everyone in my party had excellent things to say about their food. From the Reuben to the Philly it was all good. Service was very fast and the server was quick to check to see if everything was OK. Would highly recommend this bar as we ate there twice in a 4 day stay. Check... More

We were really hoping for more at Tip Top when we read the reviews, especially with its close proximity to the Palace and Ohio Theaters downtown. Our meal there started off quite well with the Fried Green Beans appetizer. We ordered it for the two of us, and it was easily enough for four persons to share. Frankly, we will... More

Found this place while searching for a restaurant near the Palace Theater. The wine lust is nice, but pretty limited. The bar offers a nice variety of draft beers including several crafted in Ohio. I liked the 'Barley's Blood a Thirst'. Cocktail creations include 'Stinkin' Olentangy' and 'Jungle Hack Hannah'. The Beef Stroganoff was delicious & my wife lived the... More

My husband and I had dinner on a Friday night before OSU football game. The place was packed! We had the feta spread with veggies and grilled pita. Nice app. We also had the pot roast on a pretzel roll and the Italian Beef (we always get two different things to try & share) The pot roast sandwich was very... More

I was in downtown Columbus last week for a convention and found this gem right across the street from my hotel. It looks a little dull from the outside, but was a wonderful bar/restaurant inside. Don't hesitate, Go in! The menu is not large, but has many choices and I ate there 3 times in 4 days. Had the Beef... More
