    dotherobot6 reviewed Dirty Frank's Hot Dog Palace Over a year ago
    Loves it

    Kitschy beer and brats on a budget diner
    From the creator of Betty's Fine Food and Spirits and Surly Girl Saloon comes the latest venture: Dirty Franks Hot Dog Palace. Located downtown in the Red Brick District this hot dog diner is fantastic. There's more than 10 different unique variations of hot dogs including hot dogs topped with everything from olives and cream cheese to sriracha cole slaw and corn relish. There's also some more traditional fare like tater tots, chili dogs and mac n' cheese. Large beer selection and alcoholic slushies. Very kitschy, cute decor. Family friendly. Metered parking in front of diner.

    Loves it

    Contemporary dining lounge, great drink specials
    Level is a new two level gay bar, restaurant and lounge recently opened in May 2009 in a space formerly occupied by a high-end seafood spot. It looks nothing like it used to -- the interior is posh and contemporary with ultra-modern lighting and white leather chairs. The food is excellent too, and the service is attentive and kind. Really recommend this bar! Many drink specials -- check out their website for more info... Hope it does well.

    Loves it

    The best seafood in Columbus
    Hands down the best seafood in the city, Cameron Mitchell's palate-pleasing Mitchell's Fish Market is a crowd pleaser. With two locations in Grandview and Crosswoods, there are more than 80 seafood menu variations to choose from including Kung Pao Fried Calamari, Chilean Sea Bass and Tropical Mahi Mahi. Yum!

    dotherobot6 reviewed Tip Top Kitchen & Cocktails Over a year ago
    Loves it

    Ohio-centric dining spruces up the downtown scene
    Step into the retro downtown diner Tip Top Kitchen & Cocktails (in the former location of the now-defunct gay bar The Vine) and you'll notice the eclectic ephemera on the walls is old school Columbus and Ohio flair. Just opened in June 2007, Tip Top is the latest addition from the same feminist restaurant mogul that brought you The Surly Girl Saloon and Betty's Fine Food + Spirits. Tip Top boasts a delicious American diner menu with standout dishes like tasty pot roast, delicious vegan bean dip with veggies and tantalizing carmelized onion soup. Also, the bar features one of the largest and most diverse whiskey lists in the city!

    Loves it

    Western-themed female-centric bar and diner
    This Western-themed female-centric bar and diner features some of the best and most unique dishes in the city. Among these are the crunchy, taste-pleasing Frito Pie, the Kick Ass Quesadillas and the Slap Your Bottom Red Bean Hummus. Like cafeteria food with a modern twist. Surly Girl also features microbrews on draught. Open til 2 am every day and the kitchen stays open late!

    dotherobot6 reviewed The Northstar Cafe Over a year ago
    Loves it

    Hipster hangout for vegetarians
    The Northstar Cafe now boasts two locations (one in the Short North and one in Clintonville). Rarely will you find Northstar when it's not packed to the brim with hungry vegetarians. But the food is really great -- and you go up to a counter, order, sit down and wait for someone to bring it out to you. So there's no tipping a waitress. And while you're waiting, you can browse a fashion or gay rag from the huge magazine rack in the dining area. Not sure what to try? For lunch or dinner, order a huge vegetarian burger served alongside a simple salad... or a scrumptious BBQ burrito served with tortilla chips and salsa... or a tofu-filled Buddha Bowl, which is peanut yogurt sauce with steamed brocolli, carrots, cabbage and rice. For breakfast, definitely nab an egg sandwich and a house blend coffee with soy milk.

    dotherobot6 reviewed Barcelona Over a year ago
    Loves it

    Excellent date restaurant
    Rated as one of the best date restaurants in Columbus, Barcelona is upscale dining and the food is excellent. The restaurant is situated in the scenic German Village district. Try the zarzuela seafood stew, duck confit and mushroom paella or THE BEST IN MY OPINION: The Barcelona Tapas Platter (marinated salads, jamon serrano, chickpea hummus, roasted roma tomatoes, spiced olives and fresh mozzarella slices). Delish!

    dotherobot6 reviewed The Rusty Bucket Corner Tavern Over a year ago
    Loves it

    Good food and service at this neighborhood pub
    Sit back, grab a "Rusty Bucket of Wings" for only 8 bucks and sample one of the many beers on tap at this neighborhood tavern with tons of locations located in some of Columbus' most upscale burbs: Bexley, Dublin, New Albany, Upper Arlington and Worthington Hills. Try a vodka-infused piece of pineapple, a deep-fried codfish sandwich smothered in cheddar cheese or a mouthwatering gorgonzola sirloin steak. Not healthy but...Yum!

    dotherobot6 reviewed Tilden Over a year ago
    Hates it

    This place totally blows
    Club HOT is totally NOT! For one, when you get to the door they tell you that you must have a membership card to enter. Not very welcoming to an out of towner. Then if they're nice enough to let you in, you have to ask someone with a membership card to buy you a drink -- and it's still expensive! Plus, the music was like 10 years old club hits. Really awful place with snotty people. Avoid!

    Loves it

    Great video bar
    Located right next to the large gay danceclub Play, Tribe is a great video bar. I really loved the vibe of this place...and man, Southern men are definitely nice! Recommended.

    Loves it

    The best gay bar in Nashville
    Two large dancefloors and great drinks! Lots of friendly, smiling gays and an attached showbar with really impressive drag queens. This bar totally changed my view of Nashville having never visited previously. I couldn't recommend this more!

    dotherobot6 reviewed Saloon1 Over a year ago
    Loves it

    Sleazy little dive of a cruise bar
    This is the sleaziest gay bar in Key West, without a doubt. There's handcuffs at the bar. There's paddles free to use on patrons. And there's a back room dungeon where all the action is. Clothing optional and porn on the TV screens. Not for the conservative or reserved gays.

    dotherobot6 reviewed Bourbon Street Pub Over a year ago
    Loves it

    The Garden Bar is where it's at!
    A great place to grab a martini and a hook up. And one of the few Key West bars with a sizeable dancefloor. Check out the Garden Bar in the back attached to the adjoining Bourbon Street Complex gay guesthouse. Take a dip in the nearby pool and hot tub. This is really a neat place.

    Kind of off the beaten path of Duvall
    Kind of off the beaten path of the rest of Key West's local gay haunts but a nice, relaxing place to grab a drink.

    dotherobot6 reviewed 801 Bourbon Bar Over a year ago
    Loves it

    Always a great drag show here!
    Always a great drag show almost every night of the week in the upstairs bar. A great place for out-of-towners/tourists to check out. The smaller, intimate environment is not for the shy. Be prepared to get called out by some of the island's sassiest men in wigs. Featured on CNN and MTV's The Real World.

    dotherobot6 reviewed Leather Stallion Saloon Over a year ago
    Loves it

    I love this place!
    This place is great! A total dirty, dingy dive of a leather/man's man bar but a hot hangout to slurp back a beer and take in the leather daddies.

    dotherobot6 reviewed Betty's Fine Food & Spirits Over a year ago
    Loves it

    Betty Page/pin-up girl themed diner
    Betty's is a great place to take out-of-towners. You'll be immersed in the pinup girl and Betty Page-themed decor. Oh, but the food's good too. Try the delicious grilled salmon niciose salad, chipotle chicken and cream rotini or the fried plantains in yogurt salsa dip.

    dotherobot6 reviewed Marcella's Ristorante Over a year ago
    Loves it

    Italian tapas at their best
    Marcellas opened its doors in June 2007 and finding a table at this esteemed Cameron Mitchell tapas/small plates diner is sometimes a chore on Friday and Saturday nights... but if you can grab a seat then try the tantalizing cheese and meat trays, share a thin crust homemade pizza or share a plate of roasted peppers and beef carpaccio. This restaurant is all about sharing -- so bring friends! And afterwards, don't forget the Tiramisu -- it's to die for!

    Loves it

    Contemporary, tasty Asian fusion cuisine
    As if there already aren't enough fusion-style, contemporary small plate restaurants in the Short North, Lemongrass doesn't disappoint with its varied, colorful entrees and huge sushi menu. The decor: Upbeat, modern, elegant. The food: Always delicious.

    Loves it

    The best Happy Hour in the Short North
    From 5 to 7 p.m. every weekday enjoy $4 Greek appetizers and $4 gyros (with fries included), as well as $2 domestics and $3.50 import beers and only $3 martinis. Also try the vegetarian platter (the grape leaves are terrific) and the hummus and tabouli. The saganaki (flaming cheese) is also a crowd pleaser.

    Loves it

    Cute lounge-type bar
    This is a cute, surprisingly upscale lounge bar, suitable for dates or an outing with friends. The bar is situated within an old house and this adds to the charm of the location. Outside are gazebos that are perfect in the summer months. Some nights feature a piano bar and singers.

    A must on Monday nights!
    AWOL is THE place to be on Monday nights for Karaoke! Although the bar is kind of run-down and divey, the crowd is usually lively and fun.
