Plus: Central Ohio Farmers Markets.
The loud music and competiting televisions make it difficult to carry on conversation, which is fine on big game days, but not so great on date nights. Simply ordering your food can be quite difficult on busy nights.
The same goes for finding a table. While there is plenty of space during the day and early evening, night seating - especially for large parties - is hard to come by, though there is a bar to entertain you (and dozens of televisions) while you wait. There is also a large, plush VIP lounge for friends of Eddie George which makes you wish you had a connection on those looong waits.
During OSU football season, if you're not tailgating you should try to get into the Grille. It's like being at the game or in the parking lot without having to drag your own chairs.
A personal vegetarian favorite is the house-made veggie burger. Fresh, juicy and flavorful, this is definitely not a frozen wafer slapped on the grill. Pair it with the Mediterranean salad or the steamed Edamame. The Grille also boasts a well rounded kids menu, though for family dining this is more of an afternoon place when the sound and the bar are lighter.
