I’m always happy with my experiences dining at Polaris Grill. Great variety of food and excellent service.
Brunch with the wife.
The food and service was great! There was something for the picky eaters as well as nice seafood/strak/pasta choices. I would go back again.
Always reliable food! They have a great menu with something for everyone; seafood; steak, pasta, etc. Great starters. I've had the short ribs, filet mignon, salmon, walleye and each dish has been great. Max, our waiter last night, was perfect. Thanks to all the hard working staff!
Always a first class dining experience. Best service team in the city!
Excellent service and food—Napa menu is great.
Wonderfull dinner and drinks at our favorite restaurant! Great crab cakes, salads, beef short ribs. Good service and everyone is so friendly.
Thanks do’s much for keeping up the great standards you started Polaris Grill with!
Outstanding “pumpkin cheesecake” for desert. Walleye is always good.
As usual, the food was good and the waiter attentive.
Needed a place to host a business dinner. Team Polaris greeted my party at the door and had our space ready for us to be seated immediately. Our waitress Sarah exhibited a non-anxious presence. She was polite, professional, and proficient. The food exhibited a high-quality flavor profile with spectacular presentation. Every time I am in Columbus, Ohio this is a go-to spot for me. I would highly recommend!
Stellar service. However, my 55 salad was mostly lettuce stems.
Many Great Choices!!! Food is always great as well as the service!!!
We have been here many times over the years. Birthdays and anniversaries mostly. The Halibut is our favorite item on the menu. ( It's #1 ) But now a -days forget about the little extras of the past. No more birthdays extras and such. Even lemon for your fish or water. It's a shame that the restaurants have been punished so severely by the current political situation. Pricing is up, so like many we are going to cut back as well. I'll take life's lemons and make my lemonade at home. Just won't have to ask for them. Not recommending the " fish and chips " either. It's cheaper for a reason. Just sayin..
The food was very good and was served hot to the table. Our server was very good and made the experience that much more enjoyable. The noise level was very loud so do not expect a quiet talkative meal during the brunch meal.
My girlfriends and I thought the food was delicious. The server was excellent and did not rush us. There was alot of noise. We had a great experience.
Visited for brunch. Food was delicious. Cocktails were out of this world phenomenal. I want to be able to have a taste of every cocktail on the menu! I had the salted caramel apple martini and the Georgia peach martini.
I haven’t been here in a long time—wish I had ordered a salad and steak because everything on my plate seemed like it had been frozen. I ordered halibut which understandably isn’t fresh in October but the sides of “fresh vegetables ” and risotto tasted just like a frozen entree from the microwave. I could be wrong, but I’ve been dining out and cooking for over forty years. The wine selection was good, and the service was great. The bread appetizer was fine—pizza dough with a cheese sauce. My child had fish and chips which were fine .
The food was not as great as it usually is. We love Polaris Grill, but this was not as good as it usually is.
Great food, great service, great dining experience as usual!
Love Polaris Grill!
Amazing service ! Was so informed and knew the menu inside and out! Food was so good cooked perfectly. Great flavors mixed well together.
We will for sure be back!
As usual the food, service and ambience was great. I always get the halibut because it is always superb!
Good food and great service. Will go again soon.
Burger was very good as was the mushroom soup. Service and ambiance were great. The fries were tasteless and cold. May have been “fresh cut” but not freshly cooked. Disappointed they no longer have a Sunday brunch buffet, but overall it was a good experience and I will return.
Took niece(s) for brunch for one of their birthdays. Staff were so nice to her and made the experience especially fun. Food was outstanding. All around, it was a wonderful meal and experience.
Servie was slow. We had 8 people and it took 2.5 hours. Another table of 8 came in well after us and was cashing out at the same time as us. We had the same server. The 20% automatically added gratuity unfair because the service was definitely not worth 20% of a $550 check.
The patio at Polaris Grill is still the best in Columbus!!! We always enjoy a nice dinner outside, and the food is always great.
Had the carbonara and salad was excellent.
My boyfriend is a very picky eater but I remember Polaris Grill being good and I read recent reviews so I surprised him with a fun night out last night. He had the soup which he said was "amazing" and we shared the Halibut dinner per the server's suggestions! It was really good. Our dinner was so good we are going back again tonight!! Good service, good food! Makes us happy people! :)
It’s always a wonderful meal and experience at Polaris Grill.
Very welcoming. Tony our server was wonderful! Attentive, and took great care of us. Loved the food. Can’t wait to go back
The service was excellent the food was great
Celebrating some friends’ 50th anniversary! It couldn’t have been better! We enjoyed eating the most delicious food on the outdoor patio. And, the service couldn’t have been better! What a fine server. Attentive and kind. Paid attention to our every need! Impeccable! Many thanks to Polaris Grill!
Great food and service
Food was excellent, service was excellent! Will definitely go back again and again!
My ribeye was overcooked. Ordered medium and there was no pink. Server was great, even moved us out of the sun to another servers section.
Polaris Grill is our go to place for safe outdoor dining. THANK YOU
The food and drinks were absolutely amazing! Our server was very attentive without being overbearing and she allowed us to rest and enjoy the evening without rushing us! She was sensitive to dietary needs and allowed me to add on to a dish. We loved this restaurant!
Had a wonderful brunch with 3 of my BFFs. The food atmosphere and wait staff were excellent.
Service was EXCELLENT and we enjoyed a nice bottle of wine. Unfortunately Both our entrees were overdone. It was a busy night and I’m sure they were struggling as many restaurants are. Won’t deter us from coming back. Polaris grill is always a solid option.
