A former hardware store space in the quaint downtown space of Old Worthington, offering a nice variety of pub/bar food with a made from scratch touch. Burgers, fish n chips, etc. A tasty grilled portobello sandwich. Good variety of regional craft brews and full bar.

Lobster bisque is divine! Crowded, small dining area is actually part of it's charm. Surrounded by neat shops as a bonus.

The Bag of nails is an absolute must on my list every time i get back to Worthington. We stopped in after an OSU game and had the Fish, Shrimp and Scallop Platter. It was fantastic.

We both ordered the seafood platter and couldn't be happier. Everything was crispy and not soggy. The service was a bit slow and disappointing. The bartender was engaging and there were alot of locals which is usually a good thing.

I thought the fish and chips was excellent. This was as close to Ireland as I've had in the states. French onion soup was good as well.

Reliable comfort food in our hometown pub. Between 161 and South Street on the west side (where the old Worthington Hardware used to be). Bottomless fish and chips anytime truly a delight, but so good you're too full for more. Salads good and beer cold....More
