Final Cut Steak & Seafood Columbus

VERIFIED LUXURY
Walk through the doors of Final Cut Steak & Seafood Columbus and a wonderful thing happens — the flashing lights and jackpot-ringing sounds of the Hollywood Casino fall silent, giving way to soft lighting and jazzy tunes. You'll feel like you've left the din of a raucous concert hall for the soothing, elegant atmosphere of a steakhouse that's a throwback to old Hollywood glamour.

It’s a fitting feeling as dinner at this Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaurant is created with an eye for presentation — a wine and spirits list presented via iPad, a personal water attendant who keeps glasses filled with your choice of tap, still or sparkling water, and large cuts of steaks and chops ready to be paired with rich sides such as truffle mac and cheese and white cream corn.

The ambience (carrying through with the casino’s movie theme) is larger-than-life, with oversized portraits and costumes of Hollywood giants, set in showy glass cases that line the walls.

If the dining room proves too formal for your evening out, walk through Final Cut’s glass wine case and into the much more casual lounge. Grab a seat at the bar (under sparkly, feathered costumes worn by divas such as Cher) or a cocktail table and sample from a pared-down menu of Final Cut’s appetizers.

Things to Know
•Because of its location inside the Hollywood Casino Columbus, Final Cut attracts a range of diners. On any given night you’ll see groups of friends looking to spend winnings on a 14-ounce bone-in filet, casino regulars redeeming comps for a broiled lobster tail, small groups out for a celebratory meal and couples on date night.

•If your party can do it, snag an oversized booth that will comfortably seat four. It’s a showy seat that’ll make you feel like a true VIP.

•Final Cut can get crowded during the casino’s busiest times (typically on weekend nights), so plan to make a reservation on a Friday or Saturday, especially if you’re looking to sit down between 7 and 9 p.m. Mid-week you’ll have better luck as a walk-in, but reservations (614-308-4540, hollywoodcolumbus.com) are accepted anytime, if you’d prefer not to leave it to chance.
