Food, service, dessert and drinks cannot be beat in Columbus, OH. Cajun, pork chops and chicken are fabulous. Apple crisp dessert exceptional. Justin does a great job at service at the bar.

I recently had lunch here with a work colleague. We were quickly seated. The staff was prompt, friendly, and checked on us regularly. I got the bison burger w/ fries. The burger was juicy and the fries were crispy. The price for the food was fair.

The food is always excellent and so is the service. Favorite meals include halibut, grilled tuna salad, salmon, and shrimp and grits. We like the atmosphere in the bar area and frequently will ask to be seated there. The outdoor patio is also very nice.

The service was excellent, and very conscientious. As with any restaurant though, you're also at the mercy of the adjacent diners. In this case, we were seated adjacent to a table of six, and a booth of two. So we heard all about some dude's brackets. I'm not sure why restaurant managers do this, other than to make it easy...

This is our "go to" place to eat. The food is constantly wonderful and the service is great. We started with a shrimp cocktail, split a "55" salad, and had prime rib for our entree. Everything was perfect. Finish with banana foster for dessert...yum !! Highly recommend this restaurant

We went for lunch, and the service was fantastic. Our waiter was on the ball. I had the walleye sandwich and the fish was a very small portion. To me, it seemed over cooked and dry. I probably wouldn't go back with the other options available in the area.

We only visit our family in Columbus once a year. A visit to the Polaris Grill is first on my list of favorite things to do while there. I always have the same thing, Salmon Oscar. O.K, O.K, you may think I am in a rut, but I can't get my favorite meal anyplace else! Each element of the meal... More

The Polaris Grill has fall-off-the-bone ribs that are amazing! The BBQ sauce is just the right about if spicy and sweet and it compliments the smoky ribs perfectly. The coleslaw was quite tasty too. The other dishes ordered and served looked so good too, and everyone in our party was very pleased with their meal. The Parmesan crusted chicken was... More

I had the lamb chops with risotto and mixed vegtables. The risotto had no seasoning flavor to it, just tasted like rice and vegetables. In the mixed vegetables the carrots and cauliflower were not soft enough still a little hard. My lamb chops I ordered medium but had to ask our server for steak sauce. I had this same dish... More
