What do you get when you blend world-famous USDA Prime steaks, wicked hand-crafted cocktails, a 200-bottle award-winning wine list and an interior that pays tribute to our Short North Arts District home? A steak house as unique and special as Columbus itself.

Urban eclectic with a touch of glam. Home to a hotel since the Gatsby era, our historic Short North building became the perfect setting to celebrate the best of Columbus, then and now. A walnut gallery in our entryway is dedicated to giving exposure to local artists. A passion for all things Buckeyes can be seen from the homage to Ohio State football to the shades in the private dining room with a buckeye tree design. 

Happy hours to hosted private events. Located directly across from the Greater Columbus Convention Center, two private dining areas offer ideal venues for engagement parties, rehearsal dinners, social events, birthdays, anniversaries, corporate dinners or holiday parties. A vibrant bar is the place to be for the best happy hour in Columbus, with our generously portioned Sizzle, Swizzle, Swirl Happy Hour.

All with that signature sizzle. While we’re known for our USDA Prime steaks, bone-in cuts and their signature sizzle, you’ll also find fresh seafood, our chef’s innovative 3-course seasonal menu and made-from-scratch sides and desserts.
