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.

Had dinner here after the game last night. Fish and chips was great. Wife had one of the bacon burgers. This was also tasty. Great location.

Good food in a fun atmosphere, but service is slow. We had sandwiches and salads. All portions are large and our server was very pleasant and helpful. However, food was slow to arrive every time, so don't recommend eating here if your time is limited.

We stayed at the Crowne Plaza and they deliver. Picky family, but we all loved the food. Nice selection and even serve breakfast. We would eat here again

We went here because our regular places were closed, because it was a Sunday. Had Onion soup and a flatbread pizza. Both were tasty. It's a place we will consider int he future when we are going to a game. It was warm and cozy on a cold winter's day, which is what we were looking for. Prices were ok.

Because we stay at a local hotel once a month, we come here at least one night because it is convenient to walk to, especially in the winter. The food we get is consistent, nothing to complain about. We certainly miss Bill our bartender who provided us with A+ service (he's been gone a while). They recently changed their menu... More

We stopped on a Friday night and the wait staff was marginal for such a busy night. I felt that they were understaffed. However, the food served was good and served in a timely manner. I would not have a problem with eating at this location in the future.

Stopped in because of it being close to hotel and having a good reputation as a chain restaurant. Tap beer was coldish. Food was poor. Service was poor. Wasn't horrible, but not anywhere worth what we paid.

Arrived in Columbus late after a long day at work and a long drive. After getting settled in the hotel decided to visit Max & Erma's. The lobby was very crowded and the hostess said it would be an hour wait. We checked out the bar and there were seats available so we chose to relax and eat at the... More

We stopped here to avoid the cold weather and we were pleasantly surprised. They have a pretty decent size menu with a a variety of foods. I enjoyed my soft pretzel appetizer and hamburger and got to watch the basketball game while I ate! The highlight was our efficient waiter, a very pleasant and funny young man!
