The buzz-worthy reception for Ivan Kane’s Forty Deuce Café, with its gourmet burgers and famous skyscraper shakes, was cut short after just two months with the mandatory closure of all restaurants.
But we’re back, baby!
Open for lunch and dinner Wed. thru Sun., the Forty Deuce Café, with a menu created by Iron Chef winner Neal Fraser, mixes classic checker table-clothed décor with whimsical design aesthetics that takes its cues from traditional New York east side burger joints.
Amenities include Live Music on the upright piano every Fri. and Sat. night, an outdoor Patio, a Bowery Boys Kids Menu and a Hell’s Kitchen Happy Hour with Half-Price Drinks and Snack Specials every day from 3pm – 7pm.
Perfect for watching a game or just chillin’ at the bar listening to music, the Forty Deuce Café introduces a new standard of hospitality and imagination to Columbus... and make sure to check out the hidden Speakeasy upstairs for Prix Fixe dinner packages and World-Famous Burlesque shows!

Ate in the cafe area on a Saturday night. Fun atmosphere, piano player was fun and music after he was finished playing was also a great mood setter. Service was excellent and food was very good.

Service was a bit slow considering there were only 2 tables occupied on a early Sunday afternoon. Upon walking in we noticed the music was really loud we could hardly hear the waiter talking. Neal, a young man serviced us..very polite. However you could tell he was inexperienced. We also noticed his nails were pretty dirty and there was a time our waiter was cleaning off dirty tissues and plates from another table and placing the menus back into a stack without sanitizing them. We politely asked him to wash his hands before grabbing our food that had been sitting underneath the heat lamp for a while. He did wash his hands and place gloves on to serve our food but then also touched menus, rang something up in the register etc. During this pandemic it’s important to train staff how to properly use PPE especially with patrons like us who want to support restaurants and come dine in. I don’t blame the young man. I blame it on the manager on duty at that time for lack of training the staff and attentiveness. Speaking of which she should know not to wear her mask underneath her nose. It defeats the purpose of the mask.
In all the food was decent, the shakes are excellent. However with the many choices of burger joints around Easton this wouldn’t be our go to place anytime soon.

My boyfriend and I went there as a first night out in a while. Neither of us have ever been there and we loved it. The burgers were outstanding. The Bridge and Tunnel Shake was amazing and the cake was very fresh. Not only did it look amazing but many head turns as they brought it out to us.
