Brunch is always excellent here! The cookie dough French toast is the absolute best!
Great food and Service! Never disappointed! A little loud in the main room thanks to a 7 person party, but hey, people are excited just to be able to get out and enjoy a great meal.
Sat on the patio and really enjoyed excellent service from Joe. Entrees we’re all excellent and the wine (Juggernaut Cabernet) outstanding. Highly recommended.
We loved our anniversary dinner at the Columbus Inn, a classic warm and inviting place with great food and ambiance. I started with the oysters on the half shell, which were delicious. For an entree, I enjoyed the Wild Isles Salmon with risotto, and my husband had the Shellfish Cobb salad. Both were excellent. Our server Noah was personable and efficient, and we were very comfortable with the way they are handling safety during the pandemic. For dessert we shared the Double Chocolate cake, which was outstanding.
Delicious and great service as always.
We were seated quickly. Service was great.
Wow - what a surprise - portions were enormous - food was delicious. Love you can pay with your phone -
Due to covid 19 and tables so spread - the area was a bit nosier than normal - but worth the sound.
We came for restaurant week the choices were great other than the desserts which were just OK
Wish that the outdoor dining had more access to the true outside very limited on the edge by the outside
Food was excellent and the staff/service was great.
I’ve always wanted to go to Columbus Inn, i finally decided to for restaurant week! Food was absolutely delicious and our server was very nice. can’t wait to dine again.
Everything was awesome. Can't wait to go back! Great time with friends!
Brandywine Valley Restaurant week was fabulous as always. This menu was so varied it was difficult to decide what to order. Handled the virus pandemic situation extremely well. Great service, delicious food, served at the right temperatures, with superb ambiance. The salmon is my favorite . This is one of our faves and we will be back!
Absolutely delicious food and wine! Really enjoyed sitting on the enclosed patio.
I wish I could have rated Columbus Inn higher. We hadn't been there in years and were looking forward to it. We went for Restaurant Week. My husband did not really enjoy his stuffed trout, kind of mushy and trout tasteless. My food was very tasty but I asked for a medium well filet (I know) and got medium rare, but I ate around the edges and took it home for leftovers. The wedge salads were delicious and my creme brulee was as well.
Service was very pleasant, but unattentive. We waited for everything. Ambiance not great in the back room. I know hard with Covid. Maybe we'll give it a try another time.
Food was delicious, nice menu options, nice presentation. The outdoor space was well-done and quite comfortable even on a chilly evening. Will definitely return
Great food and excellent service!!
Columbus Inn is always warm and inviting. The food is always good and the servers are always on top of their game with advice and recommendations. It is a little quieter now that there are fewer people but that hasn't stopped this from being a must go to place. I would always a recommendation for the location, especially since the seating is more limited now.
I would agree that the era of COVID & restaurants serving food has been challenging. So it also is time for some restaurants to re-invent themselves.
The food Tuesday night was (if I remember correctly from other visits) always tasty.
Because people are becoming more conscious about nutritious & healthier choices it should be a lot easier than ever before to offer either less fried & salty bar foods &/or to start offering more plant-based vegetable dishes in place of way too many animal proteins.
Would I recommend your restaurant to friends? Not without a critique that your menu needs a serious upgrade for anyone who is planning to support restaurants' dining again & finding healthier alternatives.
Went there for restaurant week and the deal was amazing! Steak perfectly cooked as always. Also, they need to put the pumpkin gnocchi with alfredo sauce on the menu for fall. Can’t wait to get back.
Everything was delicious and the service was great.
Brunch and waiter was fabulous! We sat at a high top next to the bar. I don’t recall the waiters name, but he was great.
We had a fabulous evening at Columbus Inn. The service was impeccable, the food was delicious and the atmosphere was beautiful. We went to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary and they didn't miss a single detail, we were greeted with champagne as we're seated, such a lovely surprise. Food was outstanding and we took our dessert to go, it was yummy. We will be back again soon and would highly recommend to all. Thank you again you made our evening out a wonderful experience.
Excellent meal as always. Service was good. Nice setting
Service was excellent! Main entrees were very good. Seasonal salad...fair.
Food and service were excellent. Would recommend to anyone looking for good food and atmosphere!
Overall a decent experience. The food was subpar for my opinion. The service really did it in for me and e terrible drinks. We got the specialty Fall Bellini which just tasted like flat white wine with no flavor. The next drink was the peach sidecar which was much better. My friend has the end of summer sangria which had none of the fruits or ingredients listed. Just oversoaked white under ripened strawberries. When we inquired we were met with Joeys response of “oh the Bartenders must have changed the drink not quite sure.” We weren’t offered another beverage to replace it and the server Joey seemed like he would rather be anywhere else in the world but at Columbus Inn. The whole time he was very short, polite, but very minimalistic in his approaches. Like when we would bring up an issue he would address one person then speed off without even asking about the other guest. I had the filet and eggs which was classic. Not amazing but well cooked properly. Good but not great. The highlight of the meal was by far the specialty grilled cheese with short rib and Soup. Or should I say the soup was the star. Perfectly balanced with acidity and seasoning. Would come back for this alone. I would just skip the surly server who seemed to be too busy to really give us the attention we need. There was a total of 2 tables in the whole building (we arrived before it opened) and hey we constantly felt like we had to search for the sever. No offense to him. Joey could’ve been just having a bad day so I’ll give some slack but maybe the fact that we were young meant we were meant to have great service. As someone who worked in the industry over a decade it’s terrible as I had rated Th is very highly to my friend and this was a birthday celebration. Just wish things were better. Still great sandwich
Server Morgan was excellent
Food was amazing! Great service. Loved the outside heated patio. Just awesome!
Columbus Inn is as good as it ever was. Nice menu selection with delicious Seafood Cobb salad!
Brunch is amazing here! With all of the sharing sides, it makes you want to invite others to join you so that it doesn’t look like you’ll be eating all of this amazing food by yourself. 😅
Always a great meal and nice atmosphere!!
We absolutely loved it! We were there for a birthday/anniversary dinner and it was simply perfect. The wait staff was spot on and the food was incredibly delicious. The ambiance was perfect. We can’t wait to go back again.
Our first experience with Brunch at CI proved to be outstanding overall - Noah supplied great service, the brunch format is a winner as were all of the individual preparations. Our meal consisted of a well dressed salad, fresh cut fruit, our two well executed entrees (Filet and Eggs + Shrimp & Grits) and the family style plate of crispy bacon, breakfast potatoes and sausages. From greeting to departure, we very much enjoyed the options and delivery. And, for those who care - and everyone should - they observed all Covid protocols.
Loved the brunch. Everything was fresh and delicious. The staff is always pleasant and attentive.
Server was very pleasant and accommodating. We were there for Sunday brunch - food is so good, we will definitely be returning. I want to try everything! Very relaxing atmosphere.
We had a great meal as always. I’m always very happy with how they accommodate my food allergy.
Awesome experience. We started with the meat and cheese board which was a nice variety and good deal. We all had sandwiches which were also delicious and filling. We sampled a few cocktails which also hit the spot. Our server Joe was pleasant and professional. We dined outside on the patio which felt very safe. They are definitely taking all the necessary precautions during this tough time. We hope to visit again soon before it gets too cold for outside dining.
Warm welcome and pleasant staff. The food was excellent.
Food excellent, 4 separate dinners , all excellent, varied menu, superb service.
