The restaurant is just outside of Columbus yet had a very Connecticut / New England feel to it. We started with drinks and the wait staff did not rush us through our order, which was a very relaxing way to start a meal. We were tempted to order the cheese and charcuterie platter but opted out of appetizers because everyone... More

I have been to Worthington Inn so many times and have never been disappointed. Winter: head for their cozy pub. Comfortable tables, beautiful bar, GREAT Happy Hour food! Summer: nothing beats sitting on the front porch of this historic inn, sipping a glass of wine, chowing down on the Lights Out Burger, and watching the the people go by. I... More

Gorgeous bar setting, nice wine and appetizer selections make happy hour a winner. Plus it starts at 3pm! Perfect to meet friends, or your charming hubby for a romantic midweek interlude.

Beautifully converted Italianate home to a rustic and romantic, ritzy-feel restaurant. Relaxing, quiet, and roomy ambiance, with top-notch service and attention. Slightly higher end menu, but well worth the special occasion.

Such a charming location! The food was delicious and the service was attentive. Not to mention their Bloody Mary bar had all of my favorite additions. Will definitely be going back for breakfast more often!

Worthington Inn is always a good night. The food is inventive and interesting and we always enjoy. They have a great wine selection as well. We sit at the bar quite often after dinner and that's engaging as well.

The history drips off the furnishings, bar and building. I'm always greeted warmly. The bar is comfy, and the cocktails expertly prepared with a decent variety of spirits. The food is tasty, fresh made and especially a great bargain during HAPPY HOUR (M-F 3-6p). This is a great place to grab a afternoon cocktail, lunch or a nice romantic dinner.... More

The Worthington Inn has a lovely historic decor and a pleasant quiet atmosphere, however, the fare is poor. I had the Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict and received a salmon component that was canned, flaked salmon made into cakes. Certainly not the smoked salmon we think of. The eggs were underdone with lots of clear albumin still present. Secondly, the Bulleit... More

It's difficult these days to go to a reasonably quiet restaurant. Worthington Inn is sectioned off into different Victorian styled rooms making it quieter and lovely, more like an inn of the old days, which it is. The waiter was attentive and the food,for the most part, was delicious. My friend said her pork chop was tough and didn't finish... More

The food is impeccably prepared - flavors, temperature, presentation. I don't know when we have had such a dining delight. The staff are so friendly and attentive. It's like they are really glad you are dining there. No complaints whatsoever.

Thank Marilyn W
