We went here for drinks on the Saturday night of the Arnold weekend. It was good. we didn't eat. The drinks we ordered were good. We tried a few of the martinis.

Was a nice place to eat good food but nothing really to brag about service was good. No complaints about anything just wasnt an exceptional place to eat. But I would eat there again for a safe place to eat

I was staying at the Crown Plaza and this eatery provided the room service. The burger and onion rings were fabulous. I'd say one of the best burgers and orders of onion rings I ever had.

Went in for burgers (4 people) on Thursday. We ordered appetizers pretzels and the chicken fajita quesadilla. Well, it started off bad and got worse. Brought nachos instead of the quesadilla. Then the burgers came. All ordered Med Rare. All came well done and dried out like they sat back there for a long time. Anyways. Sent them all back.... More

This place was very busy during a conference at lunch time, but I was able to get consistent and delicious Max & Ermas food which is reasonably priced. I sat at the bar.

As a vegetarian in Columbus, this place actual had an option for me and it was delish! We were staying at the lofts (which is right above the restaurant) and they offer room service, which was also great. The bruschetta is also suuuuuper delicious.

While staying in town for business we ate here 2 days and I had room service a third evening. The food was delicious and cooked to perfection. The service was good even though the restaurant itself was very busy.
