Delightful experienceThe food was yummy, plentiful and imaginative, and the service cheerful, helpful and not intrusive. Inside it is quiet and relaxing. It has risen to the top of our go-to list for brunch.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMFriday Night with the GirlsWe selected Columbus Inn to celebrate a friend's birthday. Happy Hour was in full swing, and we were seated on the patio. While it was outdoor seating, it was still somewhat "hidden" from Pennsylvania Ave, which was great! The drink specials are some of the best in Wilmington, and the food was delicious, with a lot of choices on the regular menu. I'm looking forward to enjoying more good times are Columbus Inn.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWe decided to come to theWe decided to come to the Columbus Inn after a high school graduation ceremony.

All were good/very good and most of us thought the portions were perfect. Our waitress seemed to hover and although there were plenty of tables to be filled, we felt rushed. We save Columbus Inn for special occasions but some of us would like to go back more often.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGlad they're backFirst time for us since the reopening. Menu very different, very eclectic, something for everyone at all price levels. We went early as we had theater tickets and our servor was attentive, making sure we left on time. Ease of parking is a serious over many Wilmington places. Will definitely return.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for conversation!We were a foursome and we asked for a table somewhat secluded. And that's what we got. Right in front of the fireplace. We were able to talk in just slightly above normal forces on a very busy Thursday night when the place was packed! Our waitress, Barbara, was extraordinary and made the evening double the fun. Food was excellent and we recommend the 'all selection' of cheese as an appetizer. Delicious! No complaints about any of our dishes. We enjoyed a wonderful evening and stayed almost 3 hours!5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMRestaurant Week SurpriseMy dining partner and I were very impressed with our experience at the Columbus Inn. It was the first time there for both of us. The restaurant and bar were almost completely filled, and even though I arrived early for our reservation, I was greeted warmly and seated with very little delay. Unbeknown to us, it was Restaurant Week, and we took advantage of the special menu. The food that was served was absolutely delicious and attractively plated and presented even though it was a special price menu. The desserts were so good and imaginative. We loved the State Fair Fritter with blue cotton candy - a home run finish to our meal. We will definitely be back to the Columbus Inn to try out their regular menu. Cocktails and service great!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMTry any dish with the scallopsTry any dish with the scallops -deelish!!

Service a bit curt this time4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMlovely setting, disappointing foodwe had a pleasant experience here during restaurant week. lovely dining room, charming fireplace, soothing music and attentive server. in general, the food was good: generously dressed wedge salads, good bread, great desserts. i appreciate the non-meat choices for vegetarians. but i was shocked to see that the broccoli "fondue" came smothered with what appeared to be an ocean of orange velveta. i'm on a diet and assumed that "fondue" meant i could DIP the veggie into the cheese to suit my taste. honestly, it looked like something a mother would serve to disguise veggies for her picky children. the same cheese was used on the mac & cheese my sister ordered and it was delicious and appropriate there.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent dining experience.Excellent dining experience.

Took advantage of Bacon Week offer and it was an outstanding experience with the entire menu containing the main ingredient. All the items were creative, flavorful and delicious. The room was pleasant and very comfortable. Looking forward to the next visit.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent menu with friendly,Excellent menu with friendly, attentive service. The dining room was quite noisy even though we asked and received a corner table for conversation. As a result it was difficult conversing until a couple of nearby tables vacated . Ordered a birthday cake in advance which turned our to be excellent as well but I thought a little over priced at $ 30 for a 6 inch cake. Overall a very good experience.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMBest place to celebrate anyBest place to celebrate any occasion!

Had an enjoyable experience. The staff was very accomodating as my son requested chocolate milk and mac & cheese that were not on the menu and they made it for him.
