The Bar Area is disgusting! There was Mold and Lime Build Up on the Bar Counter and Beer Taps! Rancid Smell. The Bar Area Needs to be Closed Down for a Deep Clean! I'm Surprised The Health Department Hasn't Shut You Down! My Wife and I Left After 1 Beer!

Probably the worst service ever. Fish and chips were good but waitress rarely was available, brought the wrong drink, and was very unfriendly. Very bad experience.

A real favorite of mine for mid-day lunch or an afternoon conversation over appetizers with a buddy. Their bean dip is near perfection. I particularly enjoy the rueben. This visit, my wife and daughter were with me. The soup was an excellent addition to the sandwich. Try dining al fresco overlooking the stream if weather permits!

We visited the Old Bag of Nails on a Monday night. It was a bit slow w service but our server was very nice and had a pleasant demeanor. He did s nice job expanding the drink specials and answering questions. The BLT is amazing and I would huggy recommend it The patio seating was pleasant with a great view.... More

Right in the heart of Old Gahanna at Creekside, Bag o Nails is a great place to grab a casual bite to eat. The have a great chicken cheesesteak style sandwich and good salads. They have an upper deck outside seating and also bar seating.

My companions really enjoyed their lunches. I ordered their "famous" fish and chips, which were good but nothing special. Next time I'd skip the fried food and try a salad instead. The setting by the creek was pleasant, and the server was attentive.

Gahanna is a city on the east side of Columbus. The parking is sparse with a small amount of on street but there is a parking garage two blocks up.

Been here 6 times or so and always the same! Wonderful food, friendly prompt service and awesome view of Big Walnut Creek on the outside patio. Mussels and shrimp and the fish and chips are the best!

This is a place you can go with reasonable expectations for a gracious welcome and good food and your expectations will be met if not exceeded. Yes, it's a chain or a franchise, but the personalities of waitresses and bartenders will make you feel part of the family. The fish is absolutely outstanding...light, delicate, and so big it hangs off... More
