Ghostwriter Public House announces temporary closure

A popular Central Ohio eatery is the latest in a long list of spots that have announced temporary closures.

Ghostwriter Public House, the Johnstown-based restaurant located at 49-½ S. Main St., announced on its social media accounts yesterday afternoon that it plans to remain closed until Jan. 19.

The popular eatery had initially announced a shorter temporary closure, from Jan. 9-13, several days ago. It cited rising COVID numbers and a desire to keep patrons and team members safe.


The extension of the closure was also an attempt to remain safe. “We have been very fortunate as a restaurant through this pandemic but it finally caught up to us with Omicron,” a restaurant representative said. “A few employees were sick and we felt it best to close for the week so we could rest, deep clean the restaurant and try to stop the spread of it within our space. Never an easy decision but it was the best choice.”

Ghostwriter Public House joins other popular Columbus eateries that have temporarily closed their doors due to COVID-related issues. Most recently, Schmidt’s Sausage House announced a week-long closure until Jan. 14.
