Columbus Inn is always a great place to eat. I’ve been there for a special occasion, Sunday Brunch and work event, and each time it’s been delicious.
was there for restaurant week. very nice selection for their 3 course dinner menu. enjoyed a great meal with my friends!
Everything was great...I took the ambience down a notch because the buffet set up was a little congested in the bar area
We went to Columbus in for our anniversary and got red carpet treatment. Everything was so great. Loooove the lobster fried rice!!
This was a get together with friends. One friend I had not seen in two years. The Monday lunch hour was relatively quiet. We opted for lunch on the later side (1:30) and the other tables looked like friends getting together as well. At this particularly day (a Monday) and hour, the customers were on the older, retired side. Our service was good. We never felt rushed. In fact, we stayed for another hour at the table after we paid and never felt a push by the staff to leave. The food was fairly priced and good. I had a flatbread pizza and the crust was crisp the way I like it. My friend had a crab cake sandwich that she declared to be very good. The other friend had a salad topped with Ahi tuna that looked perfectly cooked. The wines and drinks were reasonably priced. The wine by the glass selection had a good range and variety. I would recommend this place for lunch or dinner but I think it's wise to make a reservation. I've seen the place very crowded on Friday evenings and during the holiday season. I am certainly going to be back. The location is good for my North Wilmington friends and for me (I am in PA) and the site parking is usually not a problem.
Very charming restaurant with good to very good food. However, Our waitress was very cold and a bit snippy with us. This is a hot button issue for me when I’m paying so much for a meal. I expect a sever with much less of an attitude. I will be returning bur if I am seated In her section, I will be asking for a table in someone else’s section. Very upsetting to be treated like that.
The prime rib with horseradish mashed potatoes finished with creme brûlée was absolutely amazing. It was our first time here and will definitely be visiting again soon.
Our server was horrible, rude. Had to keep asking for drink refills. When asked for A1 she said, why?
Service was great and the food was even better.
Food amazing! Service was not what you expect for The Columbus Inn ... or the even The Crossroads Diner. Music in Tavern loud and a little weird.
Easter Brunch was absolutely delicious. They never ran out of food. Service was great. We had to ask they turn off the TV (so inappropriate). Music sounded like it was for a young crowd--would have preferred something a little more subdued. This was my 4th visit for brunch and would go back again--any time!!
Great place for brunch. Food and service was excellent.
Great meal, service was excellent !
Always wonderful food. We came specifically for the steak and cake special and loved every bite. We can’t wait to go again soon!
Best brunch around.
Amazing food. Amazing service. Simply amazing.
The food was above average for a buffet. Not a whole lot for the vegetarian and very little for a vegan. Service was not top notch, but it seemed to pick up as the morning went by ( we were among the first to arrive at opening). Certainly plenty for the omnivore. Waffles and toppings were out of this world! Oysters plump and just right. I would guess they were blue points. Overall a good place for a romantic meal or a gathering of friends or family.
Wonderful experience overall... great food and service at a reasonable price. I’ll become a regular here.
Background music was a little too loud for the old folks and would have prompted more negative reviews were the room full of chatting diners. Ambiance was comfortable (in back room a table away from fireplace) and all food choices rated excellent. Our server Emily was delightful.
We had a lovely evening . . . A reasonably priced bottle of white wine ($40 ) accompanied the chicken dish and beef short ribs. Both well prepared and presented.
I give Columbus Inn credit. I posted a mediocre review not too long ago, and to management's credit, they reached out to me, sent me a lunch and dinner gift certificate, and asked for specific comments. And, they listened. I have since been back for both lunch and dinner and had a much better experience. The food and service was top notch. Clearly the more experienced servers work the dinner shift..but even the lunch server was attentive and friendly. So, I am putting the Columbus Inn back on my list.
Loud but fun. Great prices. Inattentive waitress but she tried !
One of our favorites, especially the Monday night steak and cake fixed price 3-course dinner. This time was not quite as special because the loud, blaring music overhead gave it an ambiance more like sitting at a bar instead of being in the dining room. Otherwise, all else was very good.
My husband and I had a DELIGHTFUL Sunday Brunch at Columbus Inn! There was a broad offering of selections and everything was presented beautifully and tasted delicious. The service was excellent and the ambiance was charming. The red sauce that accompanied some of the seafood selections had just the right amount of horseradish to make it taste just right. And even the hot chocolate bar was awesome! Background music was great - not elevator music! Highly recommend it!
Food was good but was not served very warm. Server was not especially helpful in suggesting items.
Although we frequent this restaurant often, we had the worst service on Friday evening. Not sure I will go back. Was a complete waste of an evening.
Food was very good but the room was too noisy. The low wood ceiling reflect sound.
Outstanding evening. Went with friends and the service and food we're great.
Columbus Inn is always excellent.
Second time here for Sunday brunch. Food quality and selection were above and beyond both visits.
Excellent service and food. And it was 1/2off bottles of wine night.
Love this place it is a wonderful place to go eat!
Food was good but not great, waitress was very good. Main complaint was noise level in restaurant was off the charts to the point of having to shout to talk. A large party was seated in the restaurant that were extremely loud so hard to tell what it would be like on a normal night. A party that size would have been better in a private room. We would not rush to go back.
Crab cakes were NOT all lump...lots of shredded crab and they were overcooked. Fries were limp and dark. My Seafood Cobb salad was fresh and good, but no larger than the appetizer salads served at the next table. We asked two servers for olive oil and a spoon but received neither until just before the bill came. Overall, it was a most disappointing experience after driving all the way from Lancaster to a recommended spot. Thumbs down.
Service was prompt. Food was ok, but soulless. They didn’t bring or offer bread or rolls or crackers or anything with our salads. The Caesar salads had croutons that looked like stale pieces of cornbread (too large and tasteless).
It’s a convenient location with plenty of parking, but I won’t go back.
Great Brunch and Good variety. The Food was fresh and prepared well.
Would have given this 5 stars except for two of the meals. One, the seafood salad was missing the tomatoes, the beans and another ingredient. So a little sparse. The chicken BLT would have been better except chicken cooked too long, and dry. The tuna and the filet mignon sandwich got rave reviews. Desserts were excellent and different from standard menu fare. Service was friendly and prompt, especially considering the waitress had a lot of tables. Also, the noise level was high, too high, and I was surprised to see a TV in the dining room.
Columbus Inn never fails to deliver! It is definitely our restaurant of choice for special occasions.
Great place for a romantic dinner. Food is always great!
Nice wine selection, good service from bar. Service overall was good. We weren't over- demanding, so nothing over the top was needed. No issues at all w/server- she was pleasant and attentive. Food was very good, but not insanely priced. Only drawback for me was having a table on each side of ours within a foot. Hard not to listen to them, and other way, I'm sure.
