    My new discovery here is the ribs that are offered as a “shareable” appetizer. Excellent, but in the future I will not offer to share them. 😉

    Will NEVER return! Out of several items, including iced tea!! Terrible service! SUPER slow (over 1 hour to get our food at lunch on a weekday)!! Server was not attentive, was slow & forgetful, & did not know gluten free menu. Would not allow minor substitutions. Paper straws. Very poor experience. Majorly sub-par.

    A little pricy for sure, but pretty good overall. They did forget to put my order in at the time everyone else's went in, so I had to wait for mine. They di comp me the dinner, flatbread pizza. Service was to be expected on a busy night.

    A very pleasant surprise! Found it online and the reviews were so good we gave it a shot. The wings were AMAZING. Burger and Steak both with fries INCREDIBLE. Those fries. I could have had that alone as a dinner and been thrilled. We'll be back again soon. Lovely night out!

    My daughter and I went for dinner last night and sat on the patio, Although breezy, they have heating overhead. Loved our food, our server and everything about it. Only comment is the wine is expensive. Compare on line or in store..it is overpriced. The entire dining experience rates a 5 Star

    It was extremely busy so the service was very slow and our server didn’t come back to check on us until we were done with our food. By then it was too late to let her know that our daughter’s meal wasn’t good. We wanted a second round of drinks but she brought our check before we had a chance to order them. Don’t think we will be back again.

    We live up the road and are very happy to have the Tavern as a new addition to the neighborhood dining scene. The eggplant appetizer with warm bread was great. The wedge salad was also better than many we have had. We tried both burgers and both were tasty but messy. A couple more pizza options would be good but my son enjoyed the caprese pizza. One suggestion would be to offer a couple of true (cheaper) “house” wines. We ordered house Chardonnays and were surprised when we got our check that they were $24 for each nine-ounce pour. Overall a good experience and nice ambience.

    The Worthington Tavern is a trendy spot in the heart of Old Worthington. They’ve done a great job of creating a good atmosphere and excellent service. They can accommodate big groups and small parties. Seemed family-friendly. We didn’t sit on the patio, but it looked to be a good one. The food and drinks were ok. Not bad, not great. Nothing about the experience stood out nor was it bad. The chicken wings were ok, the salad was ok, the drinks weren’t the best I’ve had. Prices seem comparable to other restaurants. Overall I’d recommend it just to try it, but not sure I’d go back with so many other places to try in Columbus.

    First time here. Great outside space with radiant heaters for pleasant dining even when temps drop. Overall, enjoyed dining here. Only negative was a skimpy pour (bourbon and rock) from the bar.

    Our server was grumpy from the moment we walked in. There were plenty of open tables but they seated us at a high top. No silverware was given to us because “that’s not a part of seating for the high tops.” Our appetizer came out and our server didn’t show up until we’d resigned to sharing the serving spoon to eat the meatball. This was a really disappointing experience. We did our best to be polite in our delivery of the frustration but we paid our check and left because it was clear the experience was not going to be turned around. The food was amazing!
