A good spot for a late night snack or meal. The menu is varied with typical bar food. The quantities are large and tasty. The service can be spotty when busy. Which is often the case during major sporting events on numerous, perhaps too many, televisions. Seems to be popular with families and other large groups. Don't look for heart... More

During an out of state visit to our daughters over New Years we stopped in for lunch with her & a couple of friends. On a past visit we visited the Cleveland location & enjoyed it very much. Probably should have went there instead. The place was busy which is usually a good sign, but not this time. We ordered... More

More beers than you can shake a stick at and very wide selection of foods. Warning - 911 wings are hot enough to be aptly named. I had the beer brisket which was delicious. Service certainly could have been a little faster and friendlier, but the drink selections and the quality of the food helped to make up for it.

Great place for lunch or informal dinner after a bike or hike trip on the Towpath Trail in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. There is a world tour of beers with many great brews on tap. It has always been a favorite with our family.

This place is a staple in northeast Ohio. Wide variety of drinks and bar food. Kind of pricey for bar food though.

When we travel, we enjoy trying local restaurants. Winking Lizard Tavern was close to our hotel and recommended by the desk personnel. The hostess and waitress were friendly and helpful. We ate in the dining room (not the bar) and enjoyed the casual atmosphere. There were also tables outside. The tavern offered a huge selection of beers and an extensive... More

I have gone here every Wednesday for the last 5 years. Amazing staff, food used to be better, but it's still a go to place. I defiantly recommend. And yes they do have an actual lizard (iguana) inside.

We went here based on tripadvisor reviews and weren't disappointed. Wing night (Monday & Tuesday) features a wide variety of wings for 55 cents each. The beer selection is large, and they're served very cold. Its proximity to I-80 makes it a possibility for a road lunch. Our 15 wings, salad and a beer was $15.
