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!

    Had a great double date night at Forty Deuce! Service was excellent and food was top notch! Music was a bit loud. Made conversation hard to hear from across the table. Overall a very good night.

    My husband and I went out for date night and wanted to try someplace new. We found this place on Easton’s website and it was SO good! Our waiter was super nice and knowledgeable. The ambiance was unique and interesting but loud. Not a big deal for us but might be bad for someone older who wouldn’t care for the loud noise.

    We ate outside and it was lovely. Tables had umbrellas over them. Our waitress was sweet and attentive, the food was a little expensive, but it was well worth it!! The burgers and fries were very good and the milkshake we shared was everything I’d hoped for! Definitely a fun experience! We will for sure be going back.

    We tried several candy drinks that were delicious. Milkshakes were yummy and really meant for two people. Ordered the chicken sandwich which was very good. The waitress warned me that it was very large and most people can't eat it all. She wasn't kidding. I ate 1/2 for lunch and took the other 1/2 home for dinner. We will return.

    We waited an extremely long time for our meal due to a birthday party. However, our server was very good and checked on our order when she noticed a group that came after us received their food first. The manager even comped our milkshakes. Even with the wait we had a great time and the food was delish.

    Friends from out of town came for a visit. We like to try something new when they came over. Ivan Kane’s looked delicious and a fun place to try. It did not appoint from the service, food, music playing and enormous milkshakes. Definitely a place we will come back to many times!

    We went to the restaurant for a mid-week dinner. The restaurant was about 3/4 full and it was clear the team working was wildly understaffed. We felt so bad for everyone working, because they were running as hard as they could to keep up but were just overwhelmed. There was no host, no expo, no manager, no bartender, and no bussers. You could see the frustration on the kitchen staff who were very speedy in getting food up to the window and because the four-person wait staff was covering for multiple roles they couldn’t get the food out on time. Overall the food was ok, the milkshakes were a lot of fun, and the ambiance was good. The restaurant was suffering from the same worker shortages as is happening everywhere.

    The food was incredible! We were sat outside because part of the party thought that is was too loud inside. When the wind picked up and it got chilly, they couldn't move us inside so we were unable to get the full experience of the restaurant. The outdoor tables were not very sturdy so we had to be careful of our drinks so they did not tip and spill. There were a few tables that lost their drinks while we were there. Definitely want to go back to get the full experience since the food was so good.

    It was so loud the server couldn’t hear the words “cheeseburger plain”. Of course it came with everything. Sent it back and they just scraped off the toppings (pickles, sauces, etc) and brought it back. It still was soaked in pickle juice and mustard. We explained you can’t just scrape the toppings off and expect everything to be ok. The server said he would take it off the bill but never offered to remake the burger or anything. I guess he expected that person in our group to eat somewhere else. Next time thats exactly what we’re going to do, go somewhere else.

    We were dining as out of towners and arrived a little early based on our reservations, but they sat us with no problem. Burgers were delicious and I would recommend the tots and dipping sauce. The shakes are a must try! Our kids loved them! The music and ambiance was energetic and fun. Our server Scott was a gem!! The only recommendation is for the owner to invest in better tables. Our was shaky and some were small but definitely not any reason not to try this place. 100% recommend!
