    We live here in Marysville and eat here quite often. The food and service are always outstanding. Most of the staff have been there for years. The wine list and room have plenty to offer. I would say their selection can match any restaurant in Columbus! And they always have amazing/unique food specials. A great place in a small town.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 4/20/2013
    The restaurant was the sitter place to celebrate my birthday. The lobster bisque was outstanding. Our server was extremely attentive but not too overpowering. We can't wait to come back and try more food. My friend is a very picky eater and he's really enjoyed his Spicee Cajun seafood dish. My chicken marsala was excellent. We have already recommended to our friends how lovely this restaurant is. Thank you for making my special day pleasantly memorable. Carole Turrin

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009VIP
    Dined on 4/12/2013
    This was our first time here for dinner (I have been for lunch) and we had a great time. My husband ordered the pork tenderloin flatbread and I had the arugula salad for appetizers. Both were delicious. We ended up both ordering pasta dishes for dinner, which we rarely do, but both were fantastic. Full of flavor and large portion size so we had leftovers. Would definitely recommend!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 4/12/2013
    Our evening was very delightful, had a wonderful time. The food was delicious, and the wine (both red & white ) was excellent. The steak I ordered was a little under cooked, I ordered medium rare, and the steak was more on the rare side. I'll eat either way but prefer medium rare. The other steak although we were informed had some fat, it was about half fat, and half meat. As for the desert we both got the impression that the complimentary desert would be for the wife only. As this was both our anniversary we didn't under stand this. Over all though we had a very good meal, and service. We went there last year for our anniversary, and had an outstanding meal, and service.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 4/6/2013
    We've been big fans of Doc Henderson’s for some time. Always our 'go to' place for special occasions. Always excellent service and food. However, we were a little disappointed regarding our meals this time. My wife's lobster bisque was just...OK, with no detectable pieces of lobster. And my fillet was not to the temperature requested (requested med-rare, but I think I got med-well) and the flavor was just...OK. I'm sure this was just an off night as we have had such excellent meals there in the past.

    Celebrated our 30 anniversary @ Doc Henderson's. It was a drive by sighting. While turning around the car, found them to have online seating and made reservations. Wonderful atmosphere, gorgeous setting, delicious food. Good table companions in the parlor room. Pleasantly surprised by the complimentary dessert from the restaurant in celebration of our anniversary. Our favorite, creme brulee with fresh fruit. We will be back.

    Ours was a Friday night visit. Quiet, soothing atmosphere in a beautifully remodeled 1800's home. Food was delicious. Lamb, tender and flavorful. Calamari appetizer was tender and crispy. Salmon prepared perfectly. Servings were generous. Server knowledgeable about the history of the home and even offered a tour. Very quick to get there from the Dublin area.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013

    Our dining experience was very good. The service was outstanding. The food was very good as well. The only complaint I had would say was that the stuffing in the salmon special I had could have been a bit hotter. But other than that it was good. The owner(?) was very friendly. She made an effort to have a conversation with us which was nice. We were celebrating a birthday and they brought out a creme brulee with a candle which was really nice (most places don't do that anymore). We would definetly go back.

    Dined on 2/17/2013
    Thought some of the descriptions of the menu choices didn't match what we received....Belguim waffles weren't the thick deep pocketed kind but the thin type you'd get from a traditional waffle iron. The "stuffed" blueberry waffle was simply a waffle with some blueberries in the batter. Stuffed implied to everyone at our table that blueberries would be sandwiched between two waffles. The crab omelet was exceptional.

    Our experience at Doc Henderson's was quite positive. The food and service was excellent. The ambiance was good and the noise level was a bit loud but acceptable. The old building is nicely restored and adds to the overall charm of the restaurant. The portion size was generous and I am looking forward to having the leftovers for lunch. We will go back.

    The cinnamon squash ravioli appetizer was to die for. The special, which included scallops, shrimp and steak, paired with potatoes and shredded brussels sprouts, was excellent. The three of us each had wonderful dinners and shared an excellent flourless chocolate cake with raspberry sauce. The restaurant atmosphere was really cozy in that great old Victorian house, and our server was friendly and attentive, with a great sense of humor to make it feel comfortable and fun. Overall, a wonderful experience.

    We have always enjoyed the atmosphere there. However, after the last visit, I doubt that we would return. The place was not busy, and the service was extremely lacking. The food took forever to be served and with that, the quality was poor!! The ribeye steak was overdone and was very thin cut. The special was salmon and scallops--but had shrimp and unidentifiable fish mixed in. We had to ask for our bread, and recieved it after we finished our salads. Our server was not to be found for most of the meal. Very disappointing!!!

    From start to finish, an enjoyable evening. The greeter was gracious, the ambience warm and welcoming, providing an intimate experience in a charming setting. The waitstaff attentive and patient, giving us all the time we needed to decide on our courses. Great advice on the wine and well-spaced courses made the experience pleasant and relaxed. The food was excellent - particular cheers for the pesto encrusted lamb over the most interesting orzo, with asparagus perfectly cooked - and the creme brulee was a perfect finish. We can't wait to return!
