Small Restaurant, Big Flavor! My wife and I had lunch at Skillet, and we were very impressed. This intimate restaurant serving locally produced food has a nice vibe. There were families with babies, people in their sixties and young couples. The tables were close enough that we were able to talk to the couple at the next table, and they turned out to be regulars at Skillet. In spite of being packed, it was not too loud, and the music was mostly unobtrusive. I take apple cider for granted, but the cider served at Skilliet is the best I've ever had. Not too sweet, with a wonderful flavor ($3 for a tall glass). My "pot roast" shredded turkey was moist and yummy, and the gravy tasted homemade, as did the mashed potatoes. My wife's pulled pork was also fine, and her macaroni was spiced an unexpected kick of hot pepper. Great flavor, and not salty. Our entrees each cost around $13. The path to the one bathroom is through the kitchen, and I noticed that the kitchen is spotlessly clean. We'll be back! Michael Armstrong Bexley, Ohio
I've been to Texas De Brazil in Columbus 3 times since they opened a few weeks ago! The steaks were excellent and the service was very good. Being from Brazil I am used to going to some of the best Brazilian Steak houses all over Brazil. In Brazil the best steak houses are known for having the best service in the restaurant business which is what separates them from one another. At Texas de Brazil they value service experience as they are well staffed with very friendly and well trained gauchos who help make the experience as great as it can be. I liked how their managers were constantly coming by our table and asking what our favorite cuts of meat were so they kept those coming non-stop to our table. The grill manager, the GM, the head cheff , the gauchos, and the servers all do a very good job. And my favorite part is that all gauchos speak Portuguese even if they are not Brazilians!
Interesting for a change of pace. Tried them because I had a coupon, and had never been there. They serve ice cream, burgers, pizzas, subs, salads, and baked pastas... feels like... Brooklyn (maybe?) inside. You have the option to sit at a diner counter or at a table, all the staff is behind the counter, so you seat yourself, get your own drinks, etc. The sausage-beef-blend burger is very flavorful, and comes on a pretzel bun, which is quite good. The regular burger is a little bland, but passable. I didn't try any other dishes, but saw some come out of the kitchen, and they looked pretty good. I like them for the variety of choices and the interesting atmosphere. Certainly not a fancy restaurant, but my first impression was a good one. Oh, and I don't have any, but, kids eat free on weekdays (sunday-thursday), so either go there or avoid there, with that in mind. :o)
