Champps Sports Bar - Columbus
Book your next event with us
Small portions and a bit overpriced. Not the way it was 5 years ago.
Unfortunately, we didn't pick the best day to visit Champps for lunch with a large group. The service was slow, meals took over an hour to deliver, the server told the table the health department shut down their salad station, so anyone that ordered a salad didn't know their meal wasn't coming for an hour. Several left because of cold food, improper orders, etc. We were celebrating a special occasion, so it pretty much ruined the party.
Service was very good overall as was the food. My only observation is that this was the third time I had made a reservation through OpenTable, each time I announced to the host/hostess of my having a reservation and, from what I could tell, it was never verified or acknowledged. I only got credit on my OpenTable account for one of those visits.
No staff, had to wait about an hour and 20 mins for our food and it was not busy. Watched as people were placed on a “wait” list in which no one was tending too.
We have been to this establishment many times and this was a disappointment. 2-3 food items that were regular on menu were unavailable. Waitress was not courteous and site was run down. Very unsatisfactory especially since this for Fathers Day.
Consistently great service and food. Nice proportions, appropriately priced. Great for groups-- 8-20.
Disappointing. Slow service. They left items off our dinner, ran out of beer and could not get it “tapped”, food was not that good. Definite disappointment.
Food was good. Service was good. But the place was nearly empty. I take that as a bad restaurant omen. Perhaps the confusing access was part of the reason.
The host, a young man, wasn’t very welcoming and was borderline rude. All in all, it was just okay.
Friendly staff and excellent food. Thank you for a nice Mother's day lunch!
Made an online reservation through OpenTable and when I showed up, they wouldn't honor it. They asked if I made it the same day, which I did, and they said they were too busy and wouldn't be able to honor it. Ridiculous. Will never go back to their restaurant. If you can't take more reservations, you need to note that on the system just like other restaurants do.
Waited 45 min to an hour for food and when came out, was cold. Nothing better than a cold burger and fries 😡
You guys did a great job with our 15 top that increased to 28! Thanks for all the patience, especially Ashley!!

Good food and price
Our waitress was amazing. The food was mediocre and someone in our party found glass in their salad. He noticed it after cutting the inside of his mouth.
I was surprised at how quickly my food arrived considering both prior experience and the time of day I visited. The server was great and added to the experience. Looking forward to return soon!
On an aside, the much-ballyhooed craft beer list was, frankly, a big disappointment. It is clearly aimed at people who have no idea about craft beer and who’d order an IPA without knowing what the abbreviation stands for just to be part of the inexplicable fad. Also, I was very surprised at finding Thirsty Dog’s 12 Dogs of Christmas on draft in April. Seasonal beers boasting spices don’t age particularly well, so one has to wonder how fresh and flavorful this selection is at the present time.
I didn’t visit Champps for beers on this occasion, but had the beer list met expectations and came remotely close to living up to the hype, I probably would’ve ordered one. Still, considering the purpose of the visit, I was very satisfied with dining there this past Wednesday.
Didn't receive two orders of waffle fries, regular without a reason. Little follow up by server replaced by manager doing some of the duties. Food wasn't spectacular.
very large American menu with something for everybody. tvs for sports and friendly service.
We always enjoy the atmosphere but again this year our reservation was lost. Luckily it was not busy when we arrived so we only waited a few minutes. It was fun that the host actually remembered it happening the year before as well.
Food was very okay.
Price was a few bucks more than other places of the same caliber.
Server was hustling but frantic. No good explanation but the bar tickets were backed up which delayed our beer, but not the end of the world.
Service wasn’t great even though the place was not busy. One of the orders was wrong. Food was just so-so. However, Waitress did comp one of our families their food due to disappointment with the dish. I had indicated on Open Table that we were celebrating a birthday but no one at the restaurant acknowledged that so we went elsewhere to have dessert. Not sure when I’ll return to Champps.
Our server Brandy was excellent, and the food was delicious.
We were seated right away, but the food took a long time to come out. Our server felt bad and gave us a free appetizer and $30 off our bill.
Our food arrived an hour and 30 minutes after we placed our order. The manager never stopped at our table. The server gave us everything we needed and did not give us a bill. He stopped multiple times to apologize for the kitchen delay. Once our order arrived, most of it was cold and the salads were wilted from sitting under the heating lamp. Server did an excellent job, but the overall experience was a BUST. Very disappointed in the lack of managerial presence and customer relationship from that aspect.
We had reservations for a party of ten @ 6:45. We ordered apps at 6:50. We still didn’t have entrees at 8pm and we had tix to an event at 8:30. The manager apologized and comped the entire check BUT some of us we unable to eat. They were still bringing food out to the table at 8:15 (as they made it).....including a raw piece of salmon. It was absolutely the worst dining experience I have ever had. The service was awful to boot. Not to mention half the orders were incorrect. And although the manager tried to make it right by comping the check, we still couldn’t eat and enjoy our meals. It made very little difference. Just awful.
It was a horrible experience. VERY DISAPPOINTED! We were on our way to an OSU event and they were so slow it made us arrive later than we wanted. We literally waited an HOUR between when we ordered and when our food arrived. The manager kept saying it will be 3-4 more minutes and we would wait 15 minutes with NO FOOD. When it did arrive it was not at the proper temperature or good. My daughter's sandwich was cold. What a waste of time; we won't be going back.
Service was pretty bad. Kind of surprised about that.
It had been awhile since we had visited and my husband and I were a bit disappointed. It was like a ghost town. They have really scaled back the menu. Hubby was disappointed they had gotten rid of the Nashville Hot chicken. The cheese curds we're very good, his prime rib sandwich was nothing spectacular and my salmon was tasty with lots of fresh veggies, but it looked like it was a soup there was so much broth! For being a healthier choice it was too salty. Our waitress was terrific.
Always like the extensive draft beer menu. The menu has a good variety to choose from. I have never had a bad meal here.
It was a great place to meet up with an long time friend. It was a great place to hang out and watch the game.
One member of our party asked for 4 beers (none out of the ordinary) before they had one that he wanted. She said they either didn't carry it or they were out of it????????? On Black Friday to boot. not good. The bread on my sandwich seemed to be stale or grossly over cooked....I've had the same sandwich in the past and ordered it again because I liked it so well. Not sure if I would order it again. We have been to Chammps many times but the people with us had not. Not sure they were impressed.
Love the proximity to OSU campus. The food is good, the atmosphere is fun and we always have a good time.
While our Server was nice, the food was not good. Two plates with cold fries, another missing a topping on her sandwich, & my grilled cheese was not tasty. No wonder it was not busy on a Tuesday night, which made the music seem even louder than necessary! Then all the TV screens went off line. The Champps at Easton left/shut down a couple years ago, so I see this Lennox one leaving, too.
There were several of us and the food was cold and the restaurant was freezing. Not a good experience
A nice restaurant, an ambiance that really matches the vibe and culture of Columbus. Food is good, people are nice; good place to go with family or with friends.
I always like Champps, but this place was dead on a Friday night before the Ohio State Football opener in Columbus. Food was decent, but service was just OK. We will look for more fun options in the future .
NOTHING SPECIAL. This place is large inside. The service was terrible. The food came cold and it’s way overpriced.
Food on last 2 visits has been somewhat bland. Service on our last visit was subpar (forgot to bring one of the sides out with the entree and forgot our to-go boxes when we asked for them).
The amount of food was unbelievable. We had the beer battered fish and got three times the food that we got at another restaurant and thought this fish was the best we have had in a long time. The other couple also had the avocado tuna salad and he loved it. All four of us were really impressed with the meal.
Family of 6 had a great time visiting and eating yummy food. Being able to make a reservation on Open Table helped us decide on going to this restaurant.
Always love eating at Chammps. The food is always good and the price reasonable. Had the HUGE and very tasty Bllody Mary, and could not drink it all. Our only disaapointment was they had run out of their Mile High Ice Cream dessert. SO looking forward to that....maybe next time.
Service was very slow even though the resturant was nowhere near capacity. Took over 10 minutes to get our drinks and over 30 minutes to get our food. Ordered the Italian flatbread and what I got resembled a kids cheese pizza. Asked for it to be corrected and 5 minutes later the same flatbread was brought out too hot to touch with a few more ingredients thrown on top, did not resemble the picture in the menu at all and did not taste good. Took another 10 minutes to get our checks.
