Took over 60 people for a birthday party. As always the food was great, the beer was cold and the staff was great. We go to Planks every time we visit Columbus. It is a must.

Best pizza in Columbus. Awesome old building. Been open since 1939, original planks. People are sketched out by the part of town but once u go inside it's a complete definition of a HIDDEN GEM. Love this place.
