This beloved bar and grill is the ultimate hangout for the denizens and visitors of Columbus with a laid-back vibe. Formerly the Red Brick Inn, the establishment was revamped when it underwent new ownership and re-branded as the Red Brick Tap & Grill. With the same friendliness and welcoming atmosphere of days gone by, the eatery now highlights a fantastic new menu of American classics such as pizzas, burgers, salads, sandwiches, gourmet hotdogs, calzones and more. The happy hour and late night deals offer patrons pizza by the slice and cheap drinks. An outstanding selection of local and imported beer as well as the quirky comic-covered wall make this Columbus establishment one-of-a-kind.
Located on the far edge of German Village, Plank's serves up hot pizza pies and cold drinks to a platoon of locals every day. They do a fair amount of delivery business as well, but the neighborhood atmosphere makes for a nice place to sit and stay awhile. The space is an ancient brick building that itself kind of looks like a big overgrown pizza furnace. Inside, lighting is dim and spirits are high. Be it lunch hour or happy hour, a gaggle of regulars occupy spots at the bar jawing, imbibing and chowing. Pizzas are big and hearty, just like everything on the menu.
The true German Village experience is nothing without a meal at Schmidt's. Located at the intersection of one tiny cobblestone alleyway and another, this is neighborhood dining at its most charming. Inside, neighbors are laughing and imbibing, to the sounds of clinking steins and an upbeat oompah band. For dinner, you can't go wrong with a sausage platter -- a big, piping-hot link surrounded by kraut and potatoes and apple sauce. To drink, choose from a wide variety of authentic German imports as well as a couple of locally produced German-style lagers. See website for menu, gift shop items and more.
