The biggest tailgate parties always take place at the Varsity Club Restaurant & Bar. Since 1959, our iconic restaurant in Columbus, OH, has been the perfect place to frequent with family and friends for good food and good fun. Whether it's before or after a home Buckeyes game for a pizza, a drop-by during Happy Hour for a drink, or a business meeting or class reunion in our party space, we are the place to be for great food, cold drinks, and the biggest tailgate party in the Columbus area. Please note that we are 21 and over for all home OSU football games!
Bring your appetite and be ready to enjoy some of our lunch or dinner specialties to satisfy your cravings. You can choose from our extensive menu with a selection of soups, sandwiches, burgers, salads, pizzas, wings, and more. And while you're devouring some of our tailgate favorites, you won't have to miss any of the action. We're located only 500 yards from the football stadium, and we have over 15 TVs inside, five on the outdoor patio, and one jumbotron in the back parking lot to give everybody the view of their choice.
VC opens at 10 am for OSU Home games that start at Noon & OHSAA Wrestling Tournaments. We're a family-friendly bar & restaurant and we'd love to see you! But during Home Football Games VC is 21 & older only, with no exceptions.
Whether you're in town for a game, coming in for Happy Hour while visiting campus, or spending an evening here while staying at a nearby hotel, visit the Varsity Club Restaurant & Bar and experience a piece of Columbus tradition.
