For Cy Chambers, every Thursday evening is reserved for Third & Hollywood. A regular since it opened four years ago, Chambers loves everything about this contemporary American restaurant in Grandview, from the food to the atmosphere to the staff. All of that keeps him coming back week after week.

How did you discover Third & Hollywood?

I was a frequent customer of Northstar Cafe [whose owners also own Third & Hollywood], and that's how I met Damon Burney (general manager of Northstar Cafe and Third & Hollywood). From that relationship, I learned of their new Third & Hollywood concept, was invited to the opening and I have never looked back.

What keeps you coming back?

First and foremost, the food. The consistency and quality is second to none. They have a friendly and engaging waitstaff-they add to the total dining experience. If you have dietary or health needs, like me, they can alter the ingredients in your dish.

What's your favorite dish, and what do you recommend?

Filet Mignon is my favorite.Salads are great, the skillet biscuits are to die for and, for dessert, you have to have the lemon square. [It] has the most delicious lemon filling. It's light, fluffy and sits on top of a pecan crust with pecans on top.

What do you think of the atmosphere?

The atmosphere is cozy, elegant, yet very inviting. The outdoor patio is great and with high retaining walls-that gives a degree of privacy. There is one other hidden gem … the back room for private parties. No giveaways here; just check it out!

How is the service?

If there is a friendlier, more fun, engaging work staff in the Columbus area, I have yet to find that place. If you enjoy sitting at the bar, do that, but watch out, there are two girls (Chambers is keeping them nameless) that will keep you in stitches the entire time.
