Average but great service. Standard fare outside dining really way to dark inside. Party bar for locals, but they have nights for local groups. Watch out for the dog waste.

If you want a lot of average food that is greasy then this is your place. Nothing that is more than average.

Game day weekend full of Husker fans. Great place to congregate the night prior to the big football game. Clean but small. Pretty servers.

The owner is on the mic the whole time. Sometimes he plays music over the game. I just want to see the game and have some fun with fellow Steeler fans.

Take an old house, do little to remodel it and make it a gathering place for the community. Good food, Great spirit on game days, best place to watch THE Ohio State win. Generous pours. Friendly servers. Minus ten points for plastic shot glasses. Blah. Otherwise, good traditional bar.

I regularly stop in for some of their famous pierogi's but I don't think I've ever had food here that was anything less than stellar. The staff is very friendly and its a great place to stop in to get a drink.

We sat at the bar and had beers. The bar staff and mgr. were very friendly. They had a great juke box and they were piping the music... More

Went with a group of people for dinner before a show at the Ohio Theater. Food was fantastic. Mr. Gresso (the owner) stopped by our table repeatedly. Our server Nicole was kept hopping with 12 of us and was extremely friendly. Emilio then drove us to the front door of the Theater and was there waiting when we got out!... More

We went here for a rehearsal dinner Fri night. We had the upstairs rooms. I loved this restaurant being in an old house. The main staircase was wonderful. The staff was over the top friendly and welcoming. Food delicious. The band/singer outside for the sidewalk tables was very good and friendly. Only bad thing, like all things Columbus is the...

We were looking for a place to eat after hours and we found Gresso's on Trip Advisor. Sure glad we did. Started off with delicious pierogis and finished with very tasty gyros. Great food and prices in an optional, relaxing outdoor seating area. Staff was great!
