    We live in the neighborhood and have been eating here about 5-6 times a year with friends and out of town guests. This time we brought some out of town guests that I knew would not feel as comfortable with the entree prices as we have so we did mostly sandwiches. The jalapeno corn bread was amazingly sinful...even with 4 of us sharing it the amount of butter killed it for the sweet potato fries. The Gouda Burger was good but the bun was too much for me. The aspargus was a little too limp, brussel sprouts were good and for the first time ever my husband didn't finish his fried chicken, he found it to be to greasy. Service was great and visiting with our friends was wonderful so we'll give it another try.

    Saturday night outing turned into a delicious experience. Good find. New chef has turned Grille into a Gastro Delight. The recent reviews are credible. Drinks good , food better. Busy so service was on slow side. Treat yourself to Hubbards.

    This was our 3rd time to the Hubbard Grille. It was, as usual, noisy and crowded...a typical Friday night. My food was good, I ordered the bacon wrapped salmon - it was a little over cooked but still tasty. My husband ordered the sirloin - it was dry and tough. He returned it and ordered the tenderloin medallions - they were good, but still overcooked. We know not to order steaks from here. We love the dishes made with grits - fantastic. The shrimp and short rib appetizer is exceptional!

    This was our first visit to HG with another couple also looking for a new place to dine. HG did not disappoint! Urged by other reviews, we decided to try the brussel sprouts and LOVED them. All four of us were impressed with the presentation and taste of our meals: walleye special, pulled pork & shrimp. seared tuna, and sacchetti pasta. The specialty cocktails were delectable as well. To top off the evening, our waiter, Chad, was fun, attentive, and offered great suggestions. We highly recommend HG for the ambience, service, and cuisine!

    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.

  • Anniversary Dinner
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 8/2/2014
    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!

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.

    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 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.

    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.
