Diner Reviews
  • "Service was outstanding but food was too rich and oily. Not a great selection for those who like to eat on the lighter side. Too expensive for mediocre dinner."
    Dined on 8/24/2014
  • "Everything tasted and looked like it was straight out of a can. Even the blue cheese stuffed olives in the martini. Horrible. Finally used butter knives to cut our steaks, after repeated requests for steak knives. Will not return."

  • "I asked for a candle with the birthday dessert in my open table request. Dessert never came because I never had a chance to order dessert. The waiter was too busy texting the whole time and gave me my check before I even had to order dessert. Their Fried Chicken was good. Brussel Sprouts were good. Between the host (possibly the manager of the place) texting by the kitchen along with our waiter texting by the kitchen, I think the service could improve. There was a special happy hour by the patio and when I mentioned the specials, I was not offered to move. If you want to do a happy hour special, request bar or patio."

  • "We chose Hubbard Grille after seeing it on open table. We were looking for an exciting place to take our daughter for her 21st birthday and also our fifth grader that he could enjoy. The food was fantastic and even the kids meal was nicely done, not merely warmed pre-packaged offerings. You have to try the pulled short ribs, Brussel sprouts and cornbread. Note it is an energetic and noisy bar area so request a table in a quieter section if conversation is a priority. Greg E. Did an excellent job to make sure we had a great experience. Will make sure to take friends there in the future."

  • "My wife and I had a very nice dinner at the Hubbard Grille on Saturday, August 2. We ate outside, which was pleasant. The food was very good -- the menu is nicely conceived and the dishes executed well. We'll be back for more. Note: the inside of the restaurant was extremely noisy, for those who either want or want to avoid that ambiance."

  • "To start, Hubbard Grille is one of our favorite restaurants, and, as such, it was a logical choice to celebrate our sixth anniversary. It did not disappoint. Entrees were excellent. Both were very good, cooked as ordered and well presented. Service was excellent. Our waiter, Chad, was helpful and attentive without being overbearing. When we first were seated, he casually asked whether we were there for a special occasion. We mentioned it was our anniversary and didn't think more about it. After we finished with our entrees, a server brought us a creme brulee. We told him is wasn't ours. A minute later, Chad brought the creme brulee back to our table and wished us a happy anniversary. The dessert was complimentary. Very cool."

  • "We went there last Saturday and had a wonderful experience! My husband and I try minimally try 1 to 2 different places a month. For the past several months we have not had very good luck w service/food BUT this place we will definitely go back and tell everyone to go! I wish restaurants understood you only get one chance and if you suck at either service or food or both there is no reason to go back for another try as there is just way too many other places to go; great places that do it right the first time! Thanks Hubbard Grille YOU are one of those places! Awesome and the manager is awesome too!"

  • "We had a large party and were seated immediately for our 8 PM reservation in a corner table in the bar area. We had the area to ourselves and were pleased with the menu choices, wine selection and attentive service. All in all it was a lovely evening!"

  • "Can get pricey but sticking with an order of brussel sprouts and sandwiches will make you very satisfied and keep your wallet pretty full!"

  • "Had been there for private event and everything was top notch. A bit disappointed on our return. Had a reservation bit were first offered a high top on the bar behind the check in. Waited 30 minutes for a table in dining room. Service was great and food good but have had better in same neighborhood. Prices are reasonable. Will try again."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "We ate outside and the evening was lovely. We had the Price Fix menu during Resturant Week and the food was very good. We asked for the dessert to go and the Chocolate Mousse was kindof dumped in a box but it tasted great."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "Portions are huge here. The small plates aren't small at all... more than enough for an entire meal or to share with 4 people. We enjoyed the calamari appetizer, mussels, huge cheeseburgers and best of all.... the roasted Brussels sprouts drizzled with balsamic glaze. Do not miss these amazing, crispy sprouts. Nothing like your mother used to make you eat!"

  • "We were able to find something delicious for a foodie, a carnivore, and a vegan at Hubbard. Interesting and unique food, but not too far out there for a picky eater. I would definitely recommend this place!"

  • "We decided to do a "Staycation" in Columbus. We are always in the Short North area but we never ate at your restaurant. The Hubbard Grill was the hot spot of the evening. The menu was diverse, the drinks were tasty, and most of all, our waiter, Chad, was wonderful!! We loved our experience and would recommend it to our friends. I would only suggest always having a "special" on the menu for a change of pace."

  • "Our first time at The Hubbard Grille - dined with gourmand friends. All of us were very impressed with the food, but the service needs a little shoring up - better sync between waitstaff and kitchen. We will definitely return."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "It was to noisy for me, the food was good, but not particularly outstanding, service was okay, but there were times when we were looking for our waiter for water, check, etc. I don't feel the need to rush back."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "I ordered the crispy brussel sprouts and they were perfect. Crispy and plentiful, with a sweet raspberry glaze. They looked beautiful resting on the elongated plate they arrived to our table on. The serving spoon was rectangular and helped set the foodie mood. I would order every time I go. Our server was not attentive. Water glasses were empty and she never delivered any of our food herself. There was no check back regarding how our dishes were until we need a box to take things home."

  • "Saturday night our party of 5 enjoyed a booth seating along the south wall facing the bar. We were greeted quickly, and drinks brought quickly to the table. Service was well-timed. The food was very good; the Hub salad was awesome. I had the seafood special with a Marlin filet and shrimp hash; very tasty! Dessert menu was offered. We never felt rushed to eat and leave. It was pouring rain outside and we waited a bit before departing. The restaurant was well staffed and tables bused quickly to accommodate others waiting for a table. Overall a great experience; entree's were a little pricey, glasses of wine $9, $10, and $13, so for us Hubbard Grille will be an occasional treat to try something new."

  • "Dinner was delicious. The fried chicken was amazing, although you do get way too many brussel sprouts. The spinach and artichoke dip was just so-so. Overall we had a wonderful dinner with really really good cocktails!!!"

  • "The food was excellent! My husband and I both commented that it was one of the best restaurant experiences we have had in a long time and we do eat out a lot and try new places."

  • "The food was all right, but not for the price. I asked for a mojito and they didn't have mint leaves to make one. We also asked what the specials were and the waitress responded with "I haven't had the chance to try it." "

  • "Another excellent meal. Everything from drinks, food variety, and service was top notch. Had a hard time deciding what to order as everything on the menu sounded delicious. Keep bringing the great food options! Sat upstairs, so a little more quiet than the main level. Noise level downstairs was energetic though."

  • "The Hubbard Grille, like the rest of the Short North, was buzzing with families celebrating mom last Sunday. I dined with my mom and my sister (soon to be mom of twin boys), my dad and brother in law. The five of us arrived early for of reservation but were sat right away. The table might have set a bad vibe for me right away. We were sat at a booth that had a chair at the end for the 5th person to sit at. Not only were knees knocking under the table but on the table was a skilled game of how to fit everyone's food and drink. The table was also soaked from our cold drinks on a warm day and no coasters. The food was good. Everyone at the table ordered differently. The French toast was a table success, I would also recommend the Mac N Cheese"

Waiter did apologize for the prep of the food, but not sure I'd go back any time soon. Disheartening considering I've had a number of friends go there and have recommend Hubbard Grille."
