In Columbus for a getaway weekend and wanted a place near the hotel (Sheraton downtown) for a cocktail before dinner. Very quaint atmosphere with black and white TV shows on. Very good cocktail list named with cute references to Columbus. We got the cheese curds...to hold us over till dinner and they did not disappoint. Bartenders were very friendly. Overall a great experience for a couple of pre dinner cocktails!More

Neat place. Space puts me in mind of the original Max & Erma’s in German Village. I was surprised by prices, but it matches the smaller portion size. Food was fresh and fast, looked great, but was lacking flavor (I had the Chimichurri Chicken).

They make great martinis, I love their fried green bean appetizers, they're great at making vegan options!

Handy for the Renaissance hotel ( 2 mins). Good little bat and eatery. Good choice of beer. Food pretty good as well. Friendly staff. Open late!

Had dinner here before the theater. Food was good (had the pot roast)but no domestic light beer other than in cans. Hard to understand when this is a bar. Place was lively but bathrooms were disgusting.

Although not the prettiest of restaurants, the staff is warm and friendly, the food is good, the drinks are great, and there are always lots of wonderful people there.

For years, I've eaten here. Just a block from my apartment, so it's convenient for a sandwich, burger, or entree when I don't feel like cooking. Great happy hour, too. Ohio craft beers are half-priced. Disappointing on my last two visits. The reuben was pretty...chintzy on the corned beef. Tasty but I'm not on a diet! Next time, I had the open-faced roast beef. Should have known when, on a very slow night, the sandwich came in about three minutes. Obviously, pre-cooked, and it tasted so. Really poor. More like chipped beef on toast.More

Decided to try this out while in the area for a conference. We were a party of 7 and were quickly seated. Service was attentive without being over bearing. Pleasantly surprised at the reasonable prices. All of us left happy and full.

Tough to find food after 8 on Sunday, but Tip Top got the bill. Eclectic decor and generous portions. The Mac and cheese was fantastic. Craft beers were very good. And service was excellent. Would return.
