Great burgers. Service was slow due to events in close proximity Saturday . (Slammed and short staffed). Will give them a try again on a week day.

We visit Columbus several times each year to watch The Columbus Bluejackets and Short North Tavern is a staple in our pre-game stops.The food is better than your average "bar food." It doesn't hurt that the bartender remembers what we drink every time! The crowd usually seems like locals during the day with a younger, 20s crowd at night. Either... More

A bit too grungy for my sensibilities. The storefront looks great, but misleads regarding the contents inside. If you want a clean and nice dive bar, try Barrel on High a few blocks up at 1120 N High St.

A very happening place, gets really crowded on Saturdays. We went Friday and got to sit at the bar. Loved it.

Great place, it's a bar that has bar food. If you want fancy there are dozens of other places nearby for that. Everyone from locals having a drink after work to hipsters trying to impress each other with their fake glasses and "look at me" beards. We had nachos and cheese sticks, burgers and fries. It's damn good bar food.... More

I loved my drink, it came in a tin cup. I loved my food, lobster mac and cheese. Our seats were awesome, open front dining. The waiter was super nice and accommodating. I would def. recommend.

The food was awful, the service was bizarre at best, the whole visit was just a pain. The SNT was not crowded on a Friday nite. I think it's a sign of the times if the place is like a ghost town on a Friday nite. I suppose the local alkies are keeping what used to be a great dive... More

Warning! Do not go during Pride, the Doo Dah Parade or any "First Saturday" or you will be upset for no reason, because I'm warning you. lol I'm sure most people go here for the drinks and not so much the food. They do offer food for about $ a person, but the service is not that swift. I sat... More
