Just got back from Eddie's. Had a business luncheon and as always the food and the service were fist rate. I don't think I have ever had a bad meal at Eddie's. I strongly recommend this place for a company luncheon or a date night with your spouse.

They had a nice ambiance inside and it felt like a steak house with a good varity of options on the menu. The service was pretty good... More

We used to come here all the time when Vittorio ran it. Everything was top notch. The food hasn't changed but it is not nearly the same ambiance. The current managers are not as personable and the overall experience is not the same. So disappointing.

We don't normally think Eddie's for a Sunday dinner with a close friend visiting but we went anyway and we were not let down. Service was on point as always, never leaving us wanting for water, wine or our next course. My friend and I had the Shirt Rib Stroganoff. The meat was tender and full of flavor paired up... More

We went for dinner on a Saturday night. We had a reservation and was taken to our table with no waiting. The service started out ok, but later, after we were finished eating, it took forever to get our check. We finally had to go find our waiter. The filet mignon was perfectly cooked, but the sauce topping they put... More

The food was excellent. The service was unacceptable. The warm bread came out about 10 minutes before the butter. When the butter came out the bread was gone. When the meal order was placed we were asked if we wanted dessert to go...most said yes. At the end of the workshop we had to wait for the waitress to find... More

The steakhouse to go to in Columbus. Service and food outstanding. Huge wine list. The waylaha filet just melts in your mouth. Very unique cuts of steak that can't be found at most steakhouses. Try the table side desserts.
