The wait staff is great. They're quick with you order and they don't try to settle your tab as soon as you finish, so you can keep talking. The bar is fully loaded--hundreds of liquors.
The food is good and good for the money. The cob salad has the most protein for your dollar. ...view more
Avoid Tuesday nights. It's $1 burger nights. It draws in bad customers and wears out the wait staff.view less

Love it! Located right next to North Campus Video with plenty of parking! (Also called "The Dube") No matter what kind of food, you're in the mood for, they've got it and its wonderful! My favorite is the mac & cheese morsels as an appetizer. Can���t beat the atmosphere either! Only negative is the slow service, I would not recommend it if your in a hurry. Everyone who lives or visits campus should eat here!!
For people who remember and love the 'Dube from its glory days, things have changed. The food is much more expensive (though now edible and even good), you can't smoke, but then again there are no more 16 y/o kids trying to get served or playing crappy teen pop on the jukebox. The service is still spotty, although much better than it was and the selection at the bar seems to grow geometrically. \r
The bar staff are great people - surly and engaging at the same time. You can ge...view moret a decent if somewhat less than expertly prepared cocktail, and most of the prices aren't bad. You can listen to anything on the jukebox you can conjure in your imagination. PBR tallboys are $1 all the time. There is nothing at all pretentious or affectatious about the 'Dube at all. It is, in essense, the perfect dive.view less
I've lived down the block from the Dube for six years. Up till recently, hamburgers were consistently overcooked, fries were mushy and undercooked, and other diner food - like meatloaf - was even worse. I don't know what happened, but I'm no longer forced to only order the turkey club or breakfast burrito: the burgers are great, other sandwiches are good, even dependable, soups are decent. They no longer make pancakes with bisquick. Still haven't taken a swing at the dinners - meatloa...view moref, turkey dinner, etc. - but I'd bet it would be edible. Also, the service is pretty good these days. And, of course, they now have one dollar PBR tall boys.view less
my friend and i upon sitting down in one of the booths was rudely told by a server, ""all my tables just filled up, i'm not going to be able to serve you for awhile"" and quickly walked away. she didn't even offer us water nor did she give us menus. we barely even saw her and wondered if she was a cook on the side. another table was finished and asked her for the check, she responded, ""isorry, but it's swamped, i can't"" what the? i think they left without paying. after sitting ...view morethere for some 20 minutes or more, my friend and i left and went to hound dogs where we were promptly greeted by our server.
this was the worst experience i've had there. the servers in general are rude, slow, and depressing.view less
The Blue Danube, affectionately called ""the Dube,"" is the best late night restaurant in Columbus. But it's not just for night time, it is excellent at all hours of the day. The service nowadays is very good, but it has a reputation for being bad, though I have NEVER had any complaints. The food is excellent as well. They even have a French Dinner platter that consists of 2 grilled cheese sandwiches (Roquefort cheese) and a bottle of Dom Parigon; it's a steal at $125. Also, they have ...view moreone of the best gyros I have ever had; and their hamburgers are excellent, as are their zesty fries! I HIGHLY recommend the Dube!view less
