We celebrated a friend's birthday at The Top Steakhouse. The bacon slaw appetizer was delicious. My steak was undercooked. I asked for medium well and it was medium rare, still bloody and red in the center. After sending it back, it was well done. Still...More

This is a small, intimate steak restaurant, in the same location for over 60 years, a rarity in Columbus. The service is excellent and the rib eye steak, rack of lamb, and macaroni and cheese were all very good. However, I think their menu is...More

A local institution and a throw-back to a 60's dinner club. Great mixologist, piano bar, dark ambiance, and good aged steaks.

The Top is an adventure back in time. My wife has been going there for thirty plus yeas and the only thing that has changed is the staff. It's loud, crazy and has a personality all it's own. There is a piano in the bar...More
