60+ year old Columbus steakhouse named the best in the state by food publication

Dark wooden trim, swanky piano music right at the bar, and a menu basically preserved from the 1950s – the recipe for an incredible steakhouse.

The Top Steakhouse, a local joint that first opened in 1955 at 2891 E Main St., is every bit as timeless and chic as it was almost 70 years ago. So much so, that 27/Tempo, a food & travel media site, named it the absolute best steakhouse in Ohio.

24/7 Tempo’s compilation of the best steakhouse in each state was based on reviews published by scores of city, regional, and state websites, extrapolating a shortlist of the most acclaimed establishments, then using editorial discretion to make their final choices. 


You’ll find classic steakhouse fare at The Top, including various charbroiled cuts of steak, lobster tails and roasted salmon, buttery whipped potatoes,  the crispiest onion rings around, plus so much more. You can check out their menu here. 

Here’s what 27/Tempo said about this beloved Columbus steakhouse:
“This locally owned vintage-1955 restaurant has a Midwestern supper club vibe, and in keeping with that feeling, offers classic cocktails and nightly piano music as well as an accessibly attractive menu. The char-broiled steaks include a NY strip, a bacon-wrapped filet mignon, and a porterhouse, and among the signature sides are truffle mac n’ cheese, roasted asparagus with hollandaise, and a twice-baked potato.”
