Went here for lunch. Nobody in the restaurant, so I was expecting great things. Someone came by to take our drink order, only to have another server stop and say "this is my table". Well, I wish that the first person had kept our table. We had to ask for things, ask for refills on drinks and then waited forever... More

While in Columbus we wanted to meet with several friends during the afternoon. Met for apps and drinks. Enjoyed several different kinds of apps that were all good. Service at the bar was a bit slow. Bartender seemed to disappear for long periods of time. Mixed drinks were a bit on the week side but choice of beer was vast... More

Mariah was a good server. The was good. Really enjoyed the queso w chips. Also the spinach chicken flatbread was real good. Then I had the kale quinoa salad w chicken and shrimp. That was damn good. And my Grey Goose martinis were real nice! I only had two and was feel good.

We came here because we had a gift card and the one close to our house mysteriously shut down. The food was just okay, the service was very slow but it was not expected to be fabulous. The gift card we had was because I was eating a chicken salad sandwich previously and there was a sharp shard of bone... More

My party went to Chammps prior to a concert at OSU. It is conveniently located and the food is good. Lots of TV's provide a sports-center bar atmosphere that helps tailor it toward football and basketball fans. I got the Wagyu burger, which was very good, although slightly overpriced and not many fries with the meal. Good place to eat,... More

The waitress came to our table as soon as we were seated. She got our drinks in a timely manner, as well as taking our order, and was very attentive. The food was brought to our table quickly. The food was very good with a nice presentation. We enjoyed it.

This is a great place to meet clients, prospective business partners or friends. The food is dependably good - as is the service. Prices are reasonable, too. One of the best features is the location -- right off 315 near OSU campus w easy on and off access and close always available parking. Lots of great stuff happens there. Hope... More

Met a friend for happy hour on a Tuesday evening at the Lennox Champps. $5 Margheritas were small in comparison to an average sized one at most other restraunts & the glass was packed full of ice, which meant an even smaller portion. We split the Mile High (chicken) Nachos which weren't fresh or great, but they were edible. I... More

I went there three times. First time they forget half of my to go order so I had to drive back through Rush hour traffic to get the rest of my food. They comped my meal and gave me a gift certificate. I gave them another chance later and they gave me the wrong order and it took 45 minutes... More

A modest little restaurant where locals meet up to catch the game and where neighbors become friends. We continue to take pride in preparing made-to-order comfort food every day. Private and semi-private rooms available for large parties.
