Eddie George's Grille 27
1636 N. High St., Campus
You can watch football at any bar in Columbus - but there's only one bar owned by a dude who won the Heisman Trophy. That, friends, is cred. In addition to rushing for 24 touchdowns and 1,927 yards for the Bucks in 1995, Eddie George has turned out to be a pretty savvy businessman.
His Grille 27 is both a much-needed anchor for the South Campus Gateway and one of the coolest places to grab a bite during a game. More than 50 high-def TVs line the stylish modern interior, and the menu includes appetizers, pastas, burgers, steaks and other treats light years beyond normal pub grub.
Runners-up: Buffalo Wild Wings, The Dub Pub
