“Excellent hidden gem. Fresh, expertly prepared fish, lobster, crab, and all types of seafood. Also, great prime rib and spareribs that are out of this world. Their house made ranch dressing is definitely worth trying. Superb service by a knowledgeable staff.

“I’ve been eating at Windward Passage for 20+ years! They consistently deliver the best seafood and steaks in town!”

With a reputation for being one of the best kept Columbus Ohio restaurant secrets, we’ve stood the test of time. We’re proud to be a family owned business since 1971. The Windward Passage has built it’s business with a focus on extremely high quality, perfectly prepared, great priced meals.

Our award winning restaurant has been recognized by “foodies” as a “beloved haven” and while we’re not the newest restaurant in town, we’ve succeeded by providing exceptional quality lunch and dinner portions at reasonable prices.

We’re looking forward to seeing you.
