Quality establishment with top notch food and service. High end dining experience that I would recommend for anyone to experience.
Appealing venue; excellent cuisine; service was very good.
Just the best from start to finish. Excellent drinks, food, and service. Lovely outdoor seating.
Always a great meal. Highly recommend this restaurant.
The steak was absolutely terrible
Love their outdoor patio. Everything we had was delicious. Wish they had a vegetarian entree option other than pizza.
As a long time patron of the Columbus Inn, I must say our experience this past Saturday evening for dinner was disappointing. Unfortunately, our evening began with a 35-40 minute wait for an appetizer (Avocado Toast with Salmon). Our server Jamie (extremely nice) informed us that the kitchen ran out of avocado and was making more. We asked to speak with a manager and this is where our evening went really bad. Admen, the manager, approached our table, did not introduce himself, had a very bad attitude and said “It’s Saturday night and the Kitchen is really busy” . He did not apologize for the wait on our appetizer. We informed the manager that we felt that lack of communication on what had occurred was poor and he said that he would speak with Jamie about this issue. However, as a manager at a restaurant that is under staffed, I felt that this was management’s responsibility and told him just that. He indicated that our appetizer would be compensated. Admen served us our appetizer and entrees without speaking and was noticeably angered at us and clearly did not want to speak to us any further. At this point I asked for his name. I truly hope this was a one time occurrence and that in the future management can treat their paying patrons with respect.
Never a bad meal!!!
Birthday dinner. Great waiter and food!
Great food and service. Columbus Inn never disappoints!
Good food. Fish a bit over cooked and dry. Asked for bread or rolls but they don’t have any
The ambience was perfect for a nice summer evening dinner.
Restaurant had a musty odor on arrival. Lighting was better than I remembered and food was good but not great.
Celebrated our 36th wedding anniversary with our friends who also shared the same date for their anniversary. Service provided by our server Noah was outstanding, food and drinks were excellent and the whole evening was just wonderful. Would absolutely recommend for anyone looking for a top notch dinner in Wilmington, DE.
Columbus Inn is always a quality experience! Our cozy table, delicious drinks and appetizers were just perfect. Very comfortable place!

Great time. Looking forward to next time.
We were there back in March and it was exceptional so we took the parents it was still good but it was much more crowded than last time and I'm not one for a noisy dinner
My boyfriend and I made a reservation to celebrate our anniversary and we loved it! Beautiful restaurant, delicious food, great service and so many wine options! We will definitely be visiting again soon.
The food was delicious and the service was superb. Our waiter Jose was attentive and respectful. We always stop here on our way to New York and have never been disappointed!
It's definitely a local favorite, as we tend to dine here at least once a week. The food is amazing, drinks yummy, and the atmosphere is energetic. Plus if you have an AAdvantage account with American Airlines, you get miles for dining!
I love the Columbus Inn, they never disappoint and consistently provide good food, services, and drinks.
Seafood Cobb is amazing
First time dining here and we will definitely be back!!
Always an Amazing experience! One of my Faves!
The Columbus Inn makes everyone feel special. Our server, Jose, was the best. The food and drink were delicious and the setting couldn't have been better; beautiful and quiet.
One of my favorite places to celebrate special occasions.
Excellent and friendly service. Superb food. Attractive and appealing ambiance. The Columbus Inn never disappoints. One of my favorite restaurants, to which I always look forward to returning. Thanks and Kudos!
Fantastic dinner for my husband’s birthday with his parents. Service and food were wonderful. Great outdoor seating.
I picked this place for my mother’s birthday. It’s beautiful with its Tiki Torches outside and gorgeous lighting inside. The staff is attentive and friendly. The food was delicious. I will come back one day, but with my friends. If you need a place to go for date night, girls night, or honoring a family member, this place is perfect.
We've been visiting birth Rehoboth and Wilmington the last couple weeks some excellent restaurants. By far, or meal at Columbus Inn was the best. I ordered the crab cakes and mixed green salad, and I completely cleaned my plate. My wife and uncle also responded the same way (salmon). We will definitely be back to Delaware and will need to visit the CI again!
Crab Cake sandwich was the size of a crab ball. Price way too high for portion.
Was seated next to mens bathroom and serving station even though other tables were available.
Everything was excellent. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Beautiful deck setting. Yummy food. We had a great time. Thank you!
We chose to sit outside, which was lovely! Our server, Cassidy , was excellent. We started with the oysters on the half shell- they were big, sweet and worth the price. We also had the Tuna rolls, again, delicious. My husband had the trout for his entree. He usually does not order any fish, but he decided to try it- he said it was absolutely perfect. Very moist, seasoned very well, and the greens that accompanied the entree were excellent. I decided to try the shellfish conn salad. It looked beautifully presented, but the best part was it had a bounty of shellfish. All in all, it was an excellent meal. We will be coming back again soon!
Food and drinks were good. Service was also good. Good menu selection but no bread service was available.
Delicious food and great service!
Our server Morgan was amazing and very helpful with recommendations food was on point and Morgan was a great ambassador for the restaurant brand
It was even nicer than I expected. Such a perfect date night.
We were there on a Friday night and received excellent service even though they were starting to get busy. The food was delicious and the atmosphere very pleasant.
Great night celebrating my husband's birthday with family. Delicious food, excellent company and great service - Thanks Jamie!! :-)
We dined at the Columbus Inn while on a getaway from Pittsburgh. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening. The table was ready when we arrived. The wait staff was friendly and attentive, and the food was expertly prepared. I had the filet and my wife had crab cake. We also splurged on dessert! The restaurant has an extensive wine list, include a wide selection of Spanish reds and whites, which is very rare. They also offer wine specials on Wednesdays. We would definitely return.
It was a warm and inviting atmosphere. The rooms were beautiful and the food was delicious. Only complaint was that we were placed at a rocky table and when asked to move to a more stable option staff seemed perplexed and unwilling stating that they had another reservation that was ALREADY late she noted. Considering this and the fact that we had been seated at the poor table I was surprised that this was even a discussion topic but once determined that we could relocate staff did not assist in the move, so we had to move our own drinks apps and personal affects and they walked away. Now this was not a deal breaker of the evening as I’m pretty light hearted but not the best first impression. I’d ask for more of this young staff in the future to be realistic and more helpful should this arise for any guest.
