Dan Swormstedt-Owner

After graduate school, Dan spent time working in the front office for the Columbus Blue Jackets and the Cincinnati Reds.  He then went on to sales and consulting jobs for various market research firms.  For most of that time, he also bartended at Rhinehaus in OTR. He found his true passion was interacting with customers and providing top of the line experiences. In April 2015, Dan made a decision to quit his corporate job and pursue opening Court Street Lobster. This is his passion project. You will be able to see him behind the bar, interacting with customers, and if you're lucky, maybe even in the kitchen.
