Eat614.com has been poppin' lately with hungry people around the city researching specialty-priced, 3-course menus from over 200 participating restaurants. We know it can be hard to make a decision, so hopefully this list of the four most-viewed Restaurant Week menus can be your compass.

Happy eating, Columbus!

#4 Eddie Merlot's
1570 Polaris Pkwy., Columbus
$40 per diner

Triple Layer Chocolate Cake

Eddie Merlot's efforts to provide the finest personal service, highest quality foods, and freshest ingredients does not go unnoticed by the Columbus community. Coming in as the #4 most-read Restaurant Week menu so far, the prime-aged beef and seafood restaurant offers king crab bisque, filet mignon, salmon, ribeye, yellowfin tuna, crème brûlée, and triple layer chocolate cake among other options as part of its specially-priced 3-course menu this week.

#3 Lindey's
69 E Beck St., Columbus
$40 per diner

Lobster Bisque

Tucked away on a brick street in German Village, Lindey's has long been one of the city's most beloved restaurants. Tempura Shishito peppers, bison and chipotle chili, marinated shrimp skewer, salmon, filet, lamb bolognese, pumpkin waffle, maple bourbon semifredo, and more will be offered on Lindey's diverse Restaurant Week menu.

#2 Del Mar SoCal Kitchen
705 N High St., Columbus

Brick Chicken

Recently named one of America's best restaurants by online reservation company OpenTable.com, Del Mar has been receiving a lot of buzz lately, and Restaurant Week is no exception. This new concept from Cameron Mitchell stays true to its Cali-inspired fare during RW with plenty of options from the sea like lobster bisque and faroe island salmon. Brick chicken, beef tenderloin, Hawaiian shave ice, and chocolate valrhona brownie are also among the mix.

Drumroll please....

#1 Cooper's Hawk Winery & Restaurant
4230 The Strand, Columbus
$35 per diner

Gnocchi Carbonara

Out of more than 200 participating restaurants, the menu for Cooper's Hawk has been the most popular on eat614.com so far. While the award-winning wines could be bringing people in, it's certainly the wildly diverse, chef-driven menu Cooper's Hawk's is offering during Restaurant Week that keeps people hanging around. Asia ahi tuna sashimi, jambalaya, crispy Asian pork, gnocchi carbonara, s'more budino, and Cooper's Hawk chocolate cake are just some of the scrumptious items on the three-course menu.

Once owned by former presidential candidate and avowed Poké-philosopher Herman Cain, Godfather's Pizza has long been absent from the Central Ohio Pizza landscape.

After years away from Columbus, the Nebraska-based chain is making a triumphant comeback, according to Columbus Business First. Godfather's has opened an express location inside the Love’s Travel Stop and Country Store at 6023 Alum Creek Dr. in Obetz.

The newly-minted store will serve seven speciality pizzas, as well as a Hawaiian pizza—all with Godfather's signature “buttery pan-style” crust. For now, pies are available for pickup, with online ordering available.

Grab a slice and celebrate this delicious comeback!
