I was able to catch the patio on an especially cheerful day. With outdoor furniture and plenty of seating, it was more than just a place to eat, it was a great spot to relax and mingle.
The menu was more varied than I expected, rounded off nicely with custom cocktails and a draft list. Most of the beer seemed to be local or from breweries close to the area with two or three big names from farther away.
All in all, The Table is definitely worth scoping out during your lunch break or even for some pre-movie drinks before hitting up the Drexel. Don’t worry Columbus, you can totally have that date idea on the house. Visit them at 2250 E Main St, Bexley, OH 43209.
