    Café Creekside: Delicious food and inexpensive

    by BLewJay Written Nov 14, 2012
    1 more image

    Asked the personnel at the front desk (Columbus Airport Marriott) for a breakfast recommendation and they said we should go to Café Creekside. Headed out the door and five minutes later we were at the restaurant. There isn't any parking out front, but there is in the back (enter at the Wendy's sign). Nice location next to a creek and during the summer months, it's probably a nice place to sit and enjoy the surroundings. Once you walk in, have a seat and order...many breakfast options (as well as lunch & dinner options) and there's also a Sunday brunch.

    Favorite Dish: We started off with coffee and complimentary pumpkin muffins. For breakfast, LJ had Eggs Benedict with potatoes on the side, while I had the Breakfast Sandwich (two eggs, Swiss cheese, sausage patties on Texas toast) with potatoes on the side. Prepared very well and service was quick. All in all, a great find, friendly customer service and I place that I would recommend.

    Buffalo Wild Wings Grill & Bar: Enjoy a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere

    by BLewJay Updated Nov 14, 2012
    Fantastic Chicken WIngs

    At Buffalo Wild Wings Grill & Bar, you can always feel comfortable pulling some tables together with your friends and staying as long as you like to play trivia on the NTN system or watching your favorite games on one of the many big-screen TVs (it's a fun, edgy, high-energy and easygoing restaurant). The food is excellent and if you like the sauces, you can bring a few bottles home with you (e.g., Caribbean Jerk, Hot BBQ, Hot, Teriyaki, Smoky Southwestern and Wild...these are the flavors that I've tried).

    Favorite Dish: Order 12 Chicken Wings (deep fried and coated with spicy garlic sauce) with ranch dressing and celery sticks on the side or the Caribbean Jerk Buffalitos (2 soft flour tortillas filled with chicken, Caribbean Jerk sauce, sour cream, mozzarella cheese, shredded lettuce, diced tomato, onion and topped with pineapple and served with blue corn chips) or the Pepperoni Pockets (2 pockets packed with mozzarella and provolone cheese blended with pepperoni and basil pizza sauce, then deep-fried to a golden brown). You can wash it down with soda or a nice cold Samuel Adams brew.

    Third & Hollywood: Hollywood Noir

    by steedappeal Updated Jul 28, 2011

    I visited the few blocks of bustling Grandview Heights and decided to find a place for a drink. This was the most glamorous restaurant of the entire trip. Perfect for dating couples, married couples and soon-to-be-separated couples! Everyone looks good in a place like this courtesy of the noirish lighting. Wines were delicious.

    Favorite Dish: The wine selection.

    German Village Coffee Shop: A great view from the hotseat

    by steedappeal Written Jul 24, 2011

    So good that I went back a second time (and the waitress even remembered me) even though I sat close to the grill on a 90 degree day. A gem of a neighborhood place that does the simple things very well. Especially loved the omelettes. This is the only place I've seen where they squish the usual sides (like potatoes) on top of the omelettes themselves, upon request. Really great!

    Cardone's: I saved the best for last

    by steedappeal Written Jul 24, 2011

    A happy accident that I wandered into this place. Completely unremarkable from the mirrored glass outside (located in a mini strip mall) but absolutely lovely inside. The best meal of my entire week in the Columbus area. Great accommodating service and very fresh food. Bravo and encore!

    Favorite Dish: Mozzarella and tomatoes appetizer.

    The Old Mohawk: Locals know best

    by steedappeal Written Jul 24, 2011

    A real German Village neighborhood spot that is still popular with locals. Very busy with the after-work crowd, especially.Stick to the basics and make sure to drink at the horseshoe bar.

    Favorite Dish: I had the taco salad although they appear to be famous for their turtle soup.

    Jack and Benny's: Worth the wait

    by steedappeal Written Jul 24, 2011

    A great place for breakfast, lunch or brunch. A really old-school place with atmosphere and honest cooking. Very friendly and competent service. They have a very orderly way of controlling the crowds by making people sign up on a sheet when you enter the place to the left.

    Favorite Dish: Any egg dish.

    Northstar Cafe: North by Northstar- just stay in the line!

    by steedappeal Written Jul 24, 2011

    A little primer: you review a menu while you wait in line, order and are given a number. You then sit anywhere that's open- there is a mixture of tables, booth, upright chairs and even a living room area. The food and its server will somehow find you and deliver your meal. Excellent, organically fresh food (I went for Sunday Brunch). This is a concept that would never work in NYC since one cannot re-order any thing without going back in the usually long line! I'm still not sure if you're meant to tip at the front end or back end of the meal? Great selection of complimentary magazines to read in a very appealing atmosphere.

    Favorite Dish: Pancakes with bananas.

    Blue Danube: Eat, drink and be Blue

    by steedappeal Written Jul 24, 2011

    An OSU neighborhood institution. The atmosphere looks as if a Beefsteak Charlie's was mutated with a Big 10 college dive bar circa 1970. This place is very efficient and super reasonable. Someone in the kitchen must really know food for them to successfully make an "Irish Eggroll"- a very tasty mix of egg roll and sauerkraut. Long live the 'Dube'!!

    Favorite Dish: Irish egg roll. the taste of egg roll and the flavor of sauerkraut- awesome!

    The Thurman Cafe: Man vs. Meat!

    by steedappeal Written Jul 24, 2011

    The darkest possible place I could fine on the brightest possible Summer day. Definitely a Man vs. Food kind of menu with their deservedly renowned, multi-stacked burgers. Didn't have it in me to attempt the legendary 'Thurmanator' but survived a lesser culinary challenge with the 'Thurman" burger, any way.

    Favorite Dish: Any burger.

    Haiku: Sushi & style

    by steedappeal Written Jul 24, 2011

    A very civilized experience. Outdoor as well as indoor seating. Very unusual seating at the sushi bar that makes for a pleasant change (little tables pressed up to the counter). Very good service and experienced sushi chefs.

    Favorite Dish: Sushi rolls

    Champs Bistro: Late night cravings satisfied!

    by steedappeal Written Jul 24, 2011

    A takeout place to head to satisfy late-night cravings. Very clean place with very friendly and hard-working, hands-on owners. If you behave right they'll even let you sign the walls so that you can leave your own personal touch! Close to North Campus and near The Library bar so extra handy.

    Favorite Dish: Cheesesteak

    Cheeseburger in Paradise: Jimmy Buffet theme and lots of fun

    by jennwerner Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    From the Outside

    This place is a Jimmy Buffet themed Restaurant. It has a fun look and feel to it the minute you walk in the door. If you have kids this place rocks. There is plenty for them to look at. If you don’t have kids this place rocks cause it’s a fun atmosphere that you can enjoy.
    We were there on a Thursday evening during happy hour. The special is ½ price margaritas and in Margaritaville what a better drink to order. They also offer $1.00 off draft beers.
    The service was great our waitress Kylie was very friendly and accommodating for us. What I really liked about this place was that at the end of our meal they could split the check evenly three ways. No problem at all our server told us it didn’t matter how many people we had. What a great place for our future VT meet.
    The food was amazing. Hot and fresh and delicious. I would recommend those mini cheeseburgers to any one they are simply delightful. The little mini buns are even toaster. The fries were not even a little bit greasy. So don’t worry if in keeping with the theme you like yours with Heinz 57 it is available too.
    Wings in teriyaki sauce to die for and the ribs were tender. The menu has lots of options for even the pickiest of eaters and I would go back here again in a heartbeat.

    Favorite Dish: The appetizer platter... Mini Cheeseburgers, wings, ribs and onion straws... Excellent for happy hour.......

    Oscar's Contemporary American Restaurant: American cuisine in Old Dublin

    by spartan Updated Apr 4, 2011

    Favorite Dish: We started off with warm sourdough bread and butter. For the appetizer, we had the Thai Stir-Fried Calamari (with snow peas and peanuts). For dinner, I selected Baby Back Ribs (1/2 slab barbecued with house fries and jalapeno cole slaw). Since my brother knew the manager, he provided us free dessert...so I had the Créme Brulée.
