“LongHorn Steakhouse, Hamilton Rd. location, Columbus, Ohio”
Reviewed 26 January 2014

We have been coming to this location for a very long time, and were looking forward to dinner there last night. We went around 8:30 PM, far after the dinner rush---and this is a busy location most of the time. With the extreme cold, heavy snow, this probably made for a really off night---and it was a little strange :)

Immediately upon entering, we noticed a couple fighting in the parking lot---surprised--but who knows? The manager did not notice us standing there for a few minutes--but that was ok. We were seated and gave our server our drink orders. The atmosphere was great---loved the western decor, cowboy theme and the bar area seems to have been recently updated. We received our cocktails in a short amount of time and gave the server our order. That's when things started to go downhill....

One of the servers sat at a table near us and she proceeded to tell--very loudly--the people at another table-- that she was not TIPPED ENOUGH by some diners who had been there earlier that evening!!! WOW! Lots of busy work by the servers around us and lots of yelling back and forth towards the kitchen....oh well. Our salads came out quickly--and too quickly-- our steaks and fish. So, both had to sit a bit so that we could finish the salads--eating fast.... The steaks and the fish were perfectly cooked, everything was great. They serve a Bordelaise sauce that is wonderful, although we were only given a tiny amount, and the server did not come around much more for us to request more. Otherwise, it was all great.

The only other problem was the cleanliness of the ladie's room--- which really surprised me. The trash basket was overflowing and paper was everywhere. I have never seen this in my many times of choosing this location. It definitely needed attention.

Maybe diners like the Dublin Granville location or the Reynoldsburg location better??? The food was very good, but we would likely choose another restaurant next time for our dining out $$$ ****one other thing noticed--we saw a $2.00 price difference between the web site menu and the actual menu on certain steaks----so please check this if you need to know....

“Great for the Price”
Reviewed 7 May 2013

It is hard to beat Longhorn's steaks in their price range. They do call ahead seating which saves you wait time. Don't miss the onions.

“Excellent Food! Excellent Service!”
Reviewed 8 April 2013

This was my first time at Longhorn Steakhouse and I was pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere. The outside of the place did not look anything like the inside. It was very nice and the waitresses were excellent. We enjoyed the sirloin steak specials and found them to be tender and juicy. The appetizer was also delicious as we ordered the onion petals. The salad was great and the bread was out of this world. However, just like most restaurants, they never give you enough butter for your bread. We just asked for more but it would sure be nice to get it when you first order.

One negative we found was the Peach Iced Tea. It was not very good. It had a bitter taste to it. Maybe, if you know what you are doing, you might be able to tone down the bitterness of it. For the price, it shouldn't have to be toned down.

As far as dessert, we had the NEW Bananas Foster. It was excellent! Good ice cream and a great taste. Overall the visit was wonderful. Just need to correct the Peach Ice Tea. We will go back.
