basically no vegan options

They have a single item marked as "can be made vegan", and it's hummus.

The happy cow profile says "vegans omit cheese" but there are hardly any items that make that enough. I got a southwestern wrap with tofu but who knows of the tortilla was vegan

Pros: cool atmosphere
Cons: not vegan friendly at all

Loving the Surly

Posted on 03 / 04 / 2012

Surly Girl Saloon is one of the popular restaurants owned by Liz Lessner in Columbus. Surly has a western-style atmosphere with a menu adding a touch of southern kick and spice. There is typically a wait to get a table during prime dinner time, but if you are lucky to grab a seat at the bar the service is phenomenal and the people watching is great. The drinks are unique and always have seasonal specials, usually even using infused liquors they create. My favorite appetizer is the "Slap Your Bottom Red Bean Hummus" that adds a nice twist to regular garbanzo bean hummus and comes with a variety of fresh vegetables and pita. For salads, I love the "Vegetarian Chopped Salad" that comes loaded with everything you could want and a dressing to die for! The avocado dressing is great just as a dipper for pita on its own. Add chipotle portabellos and you get a nice kick. There are other great vegetarian options available and can be made vegan, including the "Vegetable Melt" and "Surly Girl Pizza", and don't forget to round out the meal with "Poblano Mashed Potatoes" and a cupcake! Great food, great decor and atmosphere, great service, great drinks, overall a fabulous place worth the wait for a seat!

Pros: Excellent food, Good value, Friendly staff
Cons: Always packed, No reservations , Minimal seating
