Cool place. Hardly anybody there when we showed right before 5pm on a weeknight, but walked by a little later and it was packed. Beer list is good part locals / regionals and a sampling of other typical craft. We had a Westbrook / Stillwater collab, Jackie Oís and Actual we hadnít had before. 1/2 price happy hour and they said they were about to start filling growlers. The bartenders were attentive and knowledgeable. Didnít have food, but it certainly smelled good.

Not sure what the last reviewer is on but if this is the layout of a club then Iím a monkeyís uncle (ok ok my niece is kinda monkey-like but if this looks like a club then you need to get out more). But itís the beer list here - both in thick beer menu & on board- that will please your beer swilling little minds. If your in the city & you like beer you gotta go.

Solid beer list, didnít care for layout of place. Draft list was nice. Locals and lots of midwestern beers. Clubby like atmosphere.

When I visited: Late January 2013. What I had: Green Flash Palate Wrecker DIPA and Victory Prima Pils on tap, white wine and cocktail for my girl. What I liked: Ridiculous draught and bottle lists, bartender was spot on with her recommendations and happy to provide samples, managed to find seats right away despite it being super busy, cozy bar with chalkboard in plain view, good college crowd, really fun vibe on a Saturday night, love the Mikeyís Slice joint right next door. What I disliked: Certainly attracts some hipster types but we didnít feel out of place here. Would I go back? For sure. Overall Rating: 88

Began a trip down High street to the blue jackets game here, great way to start and it set a high bar. Great draft list! US micros with local brews too. Bodega has just started their own offerings, from Seventh Son, had a couple of those, a nice Ipa with cascade hops, a nice American string ale at 7.7%, they also had a brown ale, and a stout that was a bit smokey. Really nice beers. Rest of the draft list was impressive. Staff were cool, although the waitress recommended a Dipa to a Molson drinker we are bringing along into the light. Food was very good.

Definitely not let down by the beer selection. A really great beer selection. I was going to start talking about the food which can be hit or miss, but why bother? If you are going to Bodega you are going for the beer. There is always something for everyone. Staff is knowledgable and pleasant. Go for the beer, stay for the beer. I wish this was closer to my end of town, but my favorite place does not have as many beers on tap as this but has had most of the same ones, including Three Floyds. This is a fine place to go for craft beer drinkers. Bodega is a must

Visited for dinner on a Thursday evening. I arrived about 6, and the place was absolutely jammed. Took about 30 minutes to get a seat at the bar. Fun crowd, everyone was trying different beers and generally having a good time. The tap and bottle selection here are pretty great. I had the local Four Strings Brass Knuckle, Ballast Point Sculpin and a draft Gueze Tilquin. Service was solid, despite the crowd at the bar. The only real downside to the place was the food. The pizza I had was awful. Overly thick crust that was hurt your jaw to eat dry. It tasted like the crust had been cooked twice. Toppings were OK, could have been average if properly cooked. All head back to this place, but probably just for beers next time.

82 = ★★★Ĺ (Solid place, near the top of the list for locals and visitors)

I only use the total score, not the component parts.

Bodega is a hip place in the Short North area of Columbus. It isnít big, with a patio in front, a smaller (but absolutely stocked) bar, and maybe 20-ish tables. The tap list is big and impressive, with a ton of locals and other great craft labels. There are even more bottles, and the sours/lambics stood out to me the most. The prices arenít cheap for those but there are plenty of good ones to tempt you. Half-price drafts during happy hour; otherwise, a bit pricey overall. The food is pretty good, modern American stuff. Bodega is well-staffed, although our waitress forgot about us once or twice. Probably the best craft selection I saw in Columbus.

Outstanding selection and good beer prices during happy hour. Busy and full of OSU people. Bar food that is better than most.
