Our hiking club came here after a walk in the nearby Rocky River Reservation. We had a large table and the service was great. So many burgers and toppings to choose from and the homemade potato chips were fantastic. I couldn't believe how many they served us and how fast I ate them! We discovered on the dessert section of... More

Small place worth the wait for a table be careful of parking. Do not park in the bank next-door!!! Great beer selection on tabs and the hamburgers are out of this world. Definitely make this stop if you're in Lakewood Ohio

I had eaten here a couple of years ago on a business trip. Took the wife before a visit to Cleveland Clinic the next day. Food was okay. Service was okay. Wasn't as good as the last time I was there but still not bad.

This may not be the place to visit if you're vegan or watching your calories. This thankfully doesn't describe me. An incredible variety of beers both on tap and by the bottle and an equally incredible and inventive/eclectic menu of burgers, sandwiches, and appetizers. I suspect their dessert menu is also great, but I was so stuffed after some fried... More

This place has it all. The vibe is exciting! The menu offers something for everyone. It includes local favorites all the way to potato pancakes and homemade applesauce. The soup of the day ramen noodle chicken was better than I had in China. The grilled chicken with fresh vegetables and herbs was in the most delicious broth. The presentation was... More

An interesting menu mixing schnitzel and paprikas w burgs. Had a hard time deciding. Had this wicked country fried steak burg w fennel rosemary gravy, fried egg and arugula. Yes, it was a calorie bomb and so worth it. Introduced my daughter to schnitzel. Also very good. I'd go back. Didn't drink beer but the selection was great and they... More

If you call yourself a "beer engine" you better be firing on all cylinders. These folks have assembled a very sophisticated list of top notch brews from around the world. If you can't find something you like here you should probably head to the nearest Speedway and grab an 18 pack of bud light. The burgers are also very respectable.... More

Perhaps the best craft beer location in the Cleveland area. A large selection of craft beers... some of theirs, many of other's, from local and elsewhere. The place is not trying to be something... it just is. Incredible food menu. Even non-beer types can come here for the food. Cool spot, outdoor on-the-street patio. A must stop when in Cleveland....
