We enjoyed everything we ordered. We stuck with seafood... lump crab meat, crab cakes, ahi tuna.. all great. The old fashioned was too sweet and a nice place like this needs to use proper large cubes, but we are bourbon snobs :) nice wine selections and after dinner drinks. Overall very nice night out

ANOTHER great meal to celebrate our Anniversary. Contrary to popular belief, I did not insist on starting with desserts! She had the Key Lime Pie and I had the Mint Chocolate Chip Cremè Brulè. Main course was surf for her and turf for me!
Excellent food and excellent service. Very accommodating staff.

Really fine staff from Front Desk all the way down to "bus girl"--friendly, energetic, attentive. Food was excellent--NY steak and stuffed trout. I thought the menu could use a little tweeking--more pizza options and maybe one more entre since if you didn't want beef, there weren't a lot of options.
But overall, very nice.

First time here, delicious food. Had the pork belly bites and pierogies for an app and they were to die for. The cherry burratta salad was good although I don’t think it was burratta just fresh mozzarella, but delicious nonetheless - they even split it for us since we were sharing. We had the salmon with risotto and filet with green beans and mash - salmon was perfect but the filet came over cooked and when remade came very undercooked. They did take the filet off the bill and took care of the dessert which was very appreciated. Dessert we have the peanut butter cup and the mint choc chip crepe brûlée which both were really good. Outside is really cute and love the flowers everywhere. Will definitely be back :)

Love Columbus inn but last two times there once for dinner party of two and then again for brunch party of 4 the hostess’s seem not to know how to handle basic situations. 1- They seem to feel they are stuck with table assignments and unable to adjust when order of of guest come in differently the assigned tables are ready. My table at 7:30pm was not ready and I was made to wait 25 minutes until people left table all while three 2 tops were seated that came 10 -15 mins after us. Front off house needs to learn how to use a dry eraser. 2- Arrived for 10:45am brunch and when they wanted to seat us in fine dining area I asked if we could sit in the near empty bar area and was told it would not be possible. When inquiring why they looked again and asked if we would be done by 1:30 pm . I said of course that’s 2.5 hours away and was seated in bar area. Again I think someone maybe manager assigns names to tables and then hand off to inexperienced hostesses who don’t know they can change it when it makes sense.

We were outside so noise level was low, except for passing motorcycles!! They can't control that. Food was great, many choices from pizzas, sandwiches to full course dinners. Lively scene inside.

Always a wonderful dining experience. The menu has a decent variety without being overwhelming, and the wait staff is always very courteous and professional. The prices are fairly reasonable for the area, and each dining area in the restaurant has its own unique atmosphere

Seafood Cobb dinner was outstanding, Pepper incrusted short ribs were also very good, place was full of dinners, so the noise level was a bit high for someone who wears hearing aids but other than that, great place for dinner. Service was top notch.

Expectations were not met. Service was the only positive. Beer was served with half of the cup full of foam. For as expensive as it is, I did not leave full and satisfied. Hair was on food. Disappointed and not returning.

Service was very good with Francis. Crab cakes were good. No filler. Potatoes accompanying had too much salt. Blackened green beans were good, not too spicy. I generally do not like blackened food but green beans were exceptional.

The service and food were excellent. It was our first outing to a restaurant since March 2020, and it was wonderful. We were seated in the dining room. The "background" music was a little on the loud side, which can make conversation challenging at times. Overall, superb! Kudos and thanks!

We could not believe how much food we received for such an inexpensive price. The wait staff was available for continuous coffee and the food was delivered quickly. It was an enjoyable brunch and sitting on the terrace was a plus. We will be returning.

Shellfish Cobb was hefty, fresh and delicious! Crab cakes need to be “kicked up a notch” - a little too bland but ok. Calamari app was primo!

We were dining for the first time in doors since the beginning of the pandemic. We were hesitant but the tables were nicely separated and the staff was masked. I was also worried about taking a toddler with us but they were so accommodating. In fact, there were three other high chairs in use at the restaurant. The food was wonderful and they made our birthday guy feel special.
