Since 1933

Fred Liston built the original Liston’s and opened a small gas station, using Esso gas. Once prohibition ended, he opened his bar which had 4 stools and a candy counter. Gasoline was available outside while loyal customers fueled up inside. Liston’s has gone through many improvements, additions and a few different owners over the years. In 2021, the Worthington Restaurant Group purchased Liston’s and re-built the entire building to ensure that Liston’s would be a part of Worthington for many years to come.  

Welcome to the space we created for locals and out-of-towners. Our goal is to continue to serve great food, have extraordinary entertainment, and foster an inclusive atmosphere for all of our patrons.

Intimate, friendly, local bar and grill. Decent beer on tap, and don’t miss the fish and chips on Friday nights. The live entertainment is usually great when they have it, but be warned it can get loud in this small space!
