Columbus Ohio Prime Rib and Best Steakhouses – The Buckeye State Has it All

Home to “The Ohio State University” and Columbus Blue Jackets NHL team, sports fans will immediately recognize the capital city of Ohio as one of America’s collegiate athletics powerhouses. The official city population is just over 787,000, making it the largest city by population in Ohio, surprisingly ahead of Cleveland and Cincinnati. As a result, Columbus is home to headquarters of 4 Fortune 500 companies. It earned the distinction of being one of America’s Best Cities according to BusinessWeek in 2012; similarly, Forbes awarded Columbus an “A” rating as one of best places to do business in America. The city itself is divided into more than a dozen unique neighborhoods, each with its own character and attractions. Arts and museum lovers will find Columbus full of hidden treasures, among them the Columbus Museum of Art, open since 1931. Welcome to “The Discovery City”!

20 thoughts on “Columbus Ohio Prime Rib and Best Steakhouses – The Buckeye State Has it All

  1. J. Gilbert’s steaks was a fun night out. The aroma of the meat coursing through the air was intoxicating.

    Excellent service and a jovial crowd. I’d go back.

  2. The Refectory Restaurant and Bistro located on Bethel is outstanding. The food is prepared just right, and uniquely garnished to appeal to the eyes and nose.

    The filet mignon was tender and juicy. My friend had the walleye. The wine list had a solid selection, including bottles from Napa Valley, France, and Chile.

  3. Black Creek Bistro was pleasantly surprising. Apparently some of the food comes from the chef’s own organic garden, which was refreshing given the plethora of corporate steakhouses importing God-knows-what from parts unknown.

    I especially enjoyed the light desserts afterwards and selection of post-dinner drinks.

    Service was pretty good and very polite.

    • Service was pretty good and very polite.

      Funny, the night we went the waiter was falling all over himself. Must have been a rookie. 🙂

  4. Texas Roadhouse suits me just fine. I don’t have the money for all the other high-society stuff. A penny saved is a penny earned.

  5. Smith & Wollensky is always impressive: cheery staff, excellent food, and great folks at the bar.

    You can’t go wrong with a steak from this venerable chophouse.

  6. “The Top” restaurant is pricey but well worth it. It is highly original, authentic, and just off the beaten path compared to the “corporate” steak places.

    I tired of the same-old. The Top is “tops” in my book.

  7. Don’t bother with the Museum of Art in this low ball city. Full of prints and lithographs. Only a couple originals and they were poor examples of the respective artist’s work.
