Great happy hour deals for drinks and appetizers. Service was excellent and enjoyed all of the food that we ordered. Just keep in mind happy hour is only offered on the bar side which has limited seating.

G. Michael's Bistro & Bar. We are a restaurant committed to offering a unique dining experience — unlike any other in German Village and Columbus.At G. Michael's we are committed to focusing on local, seasonal food as much as possible.
