Beloved Columbus Wing Spot Reopens After Fire

In a spirited comeback story that’s sure to warm hearts, Shakers Public House has thrown open its doors anew, quite literally rising from the ashes. The beloved eatery, famed for serving what many locals argue are the city’s best wings, now welcomes patrons at its new address: 480 E. Wilson Bridge Rd., STE A in Worthington.

The grand opening on Wednesday wasn’t just a celebration of a new location but a symbol of resilience and community spirit.

The previous Shakers site at 385 Georgesville Rd. fell victim to a devastating fire last September.

Owners Spencer Campbell and his wife, who had nurtured the establishment into a family-friendly hub, faced the blaze’s aftermath with determination. The incident, heartrending as it was, sparked an outpouring of support from the community.

As Spencer remarked amidst the ruins, the tragedy opened doors to new beginnings and fresh connections, underscoring the tight-knit fabric of the local community.

Today, Shakers Public House not only boasts a new postcode but also flaunts a freshly updated interior.

Murals of Simpsons characters and vibrant graffiti adorn the walls, adding to the eatery’s unique charm and inviting ambiance. The new space is significantly larger, promising room for more laughter, more stories, and, of course, more wings.

Speaking of wings, the menu at the new Shakers doesn’t skimp on the favorites. From milder delights like salt & vinegar, Drunken Teriyaki, and Cheetos-flavored wings to the fiery challenge of Death Nectar, there’s something for every palate.

It’s this dedication to quality and variety that has kept the community coming back for more. And if you know any wing aficionados in Columbus, I can guarantee you that they feel strongly about the wings at Shakers.

As Shakers Public House embarks on this new chapter, it stands as a testament to resilience, community support, and the undeniable spirit of its owners and patrons. Happy eating and be careful with those hot wings, friends. They’re no joke!
