Great American-pub menu, relaxing atmosphere, top-notch service. Of all the Old Bag of Nails locations, this is my favorite. Although, because it's a narrow establishment, it's not ideal for large groups during busy hours.

We would eat here more often if there was better parking. The food is consistently good no matter what location we eat at. We love the vegetable kabobs. I always order the broiled fish.

Can't beat their fish & chips. Sometimes the "old reliable" is just what you need. Nice beer selection. Our service is always quick & efficient. Nice cozy spot in Old Worthington.

I always get the mushroom sandwich here and it's delicious! A great option for vegetarians. It can be loud inside, and on a busy night you'll have to wait for a table, but it's well worth it. I also love the fun decor inside.

Wanted their pickles! Soo cold needed warmth! Their beer selection awesome. He had a cheeseburger, I had fish and chips! Both meals excellent and hit the spot. This is the only location in Columbus we will go to, service is always greg here, not so good in other locations! Great atmosphere and is cozy!

Liked the atmosphere (see title of review above). Pretty good selection of beers and menu items. But thought it was a little pricey ($5.75 for a draft beer) and the food (fish & chips, reuben sandwich) could have been better. Really wanted to like it all better than we did. Location is good--nice walk-around neighborhood. Worthington Inn is almost next... More
