If youíve been to the other Lizardville locations this is very similar. Tucked away beneath a Winking Lizard it has a slightly better parking situation than the one in Bedford Heights. Selection and prices, not too surprisingly, are comparable although there may be some differences on which store gets very limited stuff (or manages to hold out the longest).
I am guessing based on the looks that this one does not offer food service like the one across town but with a Winking Lizard right upstairs there is no need. The combination of hundreds of fresh bottles and a quality line of drafts means that you should never walk out of here empty handed. Staff are very knowledgeable for the most part even if they havenít had a chance to sample everything on the shelves (and to be fair who has the time to do that without the consumption itself becoming a full time job).
Ideally situated near a couple of other stops this is worth visited if you live on the West Side near Lakewood. Just a few blocks from the interstate and easily accessible from main roads it joins Fat Heads and Roziís as Must Stop Destinations when traveling through the area.

Ambiance: This location is similar to Bedford Heights with the half store/half bar feel to it, but for some reason, this one seemed more open to the bar footprint.
Service: Bartenders were attentive and knowledgeable
Selection: Between the 10 taps and the bottles for sale, you can always find something to consume (On or off premises)
Value: Beers were reasonably priced, went during a Tap Takeover and still felt that the beers were decent priced.
Overall, I could see myself coming here very often if I lived close by.

Very well designed and run place. I buy into Lizardville. Beers organized by style, prices decent. Inside and outside (smoking cigars) bar with small tulips for a 5 ounce tasting pour-they had on FOUR JACKIE O hoppy beers.

This is absolutely one of the coolest places Iíve ever been to. Taps with sample size pricing. Walls of bottled beer for either on site consumption or to go. Comfy sitting room, dark beer bar vibe. I love this place!

Located in the old Donatos pizza building by home depot and McDonaldís. So there is no easy way to get here. With traffic it will take you at least 10-15 minutes from any freeway.
Setup is just like its east side sister location. Low lighting on all the bottles and they are divided by style. A bar with taps and small plates of food if you are hungry.
As far as selection this place gets every limited release and then some. Each bottle is sold as singles so you have to make your own 6 pack if you want one. They up charge up to a dollar or two on everything which is really annoying.
Overall, I love the concept of this place. I donít like itís not off any freeway. I donít like the up charges. But I really like the selection and the service is top notch.
Keep in mind itís a bar for 21 and over. If you walk in the door with kids you will be asked to leave.

Stopped on a Wednesday night? had no wait to snag a table, walked in and sat down.. took a bit for a server to appear but when he did Jason was awesome, willing to chat on beer and whiskey, attended nicely to our pregnant friend even offered a bottle he saved in the back for himself for us. Food was good, I had the egg and pancetta pizza and everyone seemed to enjoy their meals, they will chill any bottle in store for you, but takes 10 to 20 minutes.. still they get more beer than any other store in NE Ohio. Will be back again for sure.

Stopped in on a Saturday afternoon. They have a nice sized parking lot that is in the same area as a shopping center, but away from the other stores. As soon as I walked in I was greeted and found an enormous selection of bottles. Some I knew made it to the state, many I did not. I left with a good many gems and unexpected finds. Before leaving, I enjoyed a cigar and had a nice beer on draft. This place rocks.

Second location opened in May in an old pizza place. Smallish interior, with two areas of table seating along with a decent size bar. Patio is pretty large and can seat more than a few people. The tap list and bottle selection was good, as expected. Good service and decent food. Only problem I have with this place is they sell everything in singles at a premium price. I guess the location is kinda out of the way too, but it is still closer than the one on the east side.
