This place rocks. So glad I finally got to try their beers and they have a great guest tap list, as well. Food was great and easily the best wings Iíve had in months. Lotís of tvs. Great place to hit if youíre in Cleveland.

Visited on 2.26.2012. Fun vibe but definitely a bit commercial. Brisket sandwich is very good, wings were stupid good. 8 house taps with sample sizes available. About 20 guest beers as well. Very solid spot.

Iíve been here quite often, so Iíve got a pretty good feel for the place. Iím glad I live close, because their draft beer selection is one of the best in the area. They turn them over quickly, so freshness is never an issue. Their house beers are solid to excellent, especially anything hoppy. The food is really good, albeit not that healthy for you, but you get a lot of food for the money. If you leave hungry, itís not their fault. The service is usually pretty good and very friendly, but there can be a wait on weekends around the normal dinner time running through about 10:00 on some evenings. The holiday season from Thanksgiving through New Year is quite busy almost every day of the week, so if you go then, you might expect a bit of a wait. Decor is hand painted beer signs/labels on the red brick walls with pictures of patrons in Fat Heads "gear" popping up throughout the entire place. It can be quite loud during busy times, so if youíre taking small children or donít like noise, you might be better off visiting during off peak times (dinner hours). I would recommend Fat Heads to any out of towners if youíre looking for good food and good beer.

well the food here is out of this world, their beer is really darn good too, however they completely pay favor to the regulars to the point it is a hindrance to the occasional guest... Iíve waited 10 minutes before IPAfest for a table and over 1.5 hours on a saturday night.. however the wait staff is excellent and the food... oh the food, its spectacular. The onion rings will light a fire in your gut in a good way. GET THEM! beyond that they have atleast 10 taps of their beer, and a constant rotating guest taps.. canít wait until they start to bottle their beer so I donít have to wait so long to enjoy. an hour and a half is a bit much, especially when I saw every joe-schmoe walk in and give the secret handshake to the manager and get seated prior to me.

Kind of an odd, divey-looking diner from the outside. Inside, it was festively decorated, garish bordering on a little cheesy, but altogether welcoming. Very long bar, made of stone or some other odd material. Nice long list of 12 house brews and around 15 guest beers. Service was horrible at first; there was only bartender, and he had his hands full with a group of chumps trying to split their bill and pay with cash and multiple cards. It was settled after about 10 minutes, he apologized and gave us 2 beers on the house, and everything was straight after that. We ordered nachos which were pretty tasty, heavily adorned with meat and cheese. I have to dock a point for serving them on house potato chips rather than tortilla chips. Prices were pretty much on par. Had we paid for the first two beers, it would have been about $28 for 4 beers and the nachos. Overall a pretty cool spot with lots of interesting brews on tap. Would definitely recommend.

The decor in this place is first class. Great hand painted brewery logos on the interior brick walls add to the brewpub feel of this place. Great place to take the whole family for lunch or dinner. LARGE sandwiches with unique combination of ingredients that make their sandwiches outstanding. Great selection of guest taps and house brews from Matt Cole. Amazing, award winning beers! Try the Hop Ju Ju for Imperial IPA for a hop heads delight. Watch out for the onion rings though...they are VERY spicy!

Nice big place. Lots of flat-screens and lots of wood. Not noisy. Bar, table or booth seating available. It was brewing day, so the place smelled great. Also contributing to the wonderful aroma and ambiance was the decadent selection of sandwiches, soups, deserts and other entrees. I could go on, but whatever. The place is really cool. The beers were well above average. Just a joy to visit. Save up some calories before you hit the place up, because Iím pretty sure every item on the menu comes with a complimentary heart massage if necessary.

Stopped in this afternoon for lunch and a few brews on our way between Virginia and Grand Rapids. Was really looking forward to trying the Head Hunter IPA and it did not disappoint. Walked in and, as would be expected at most locations, it was not terribly crowded on a Thursday afternoon at 11:30 AM. Off to the left when you walk in is a nice gift-shop-type area. We walked ahead to the bar and grabbed a seat. The bar is very, very large with multiple tap areas. We had the choice of seven different Fat Headís beers on tap plus a single cask offering. (It looked like they have the capacity for two casks.) We selected the sample tray. In addition to their own beers, there were 10-15 other nice craft brews available. Props for this, first of all. Second, good job having a sample tray, which should be a requirement for any brewpub. Iíd like something other than the generic sample glasses, though not many places have mini snifters for their sample trays, so Iíll certainly give them a pass on that. The vibe of the place is really cool. Theyíve got brick walls with all sorts of Fat Headís logos and accomplishments. As you go into the dining area, they have all sorts of brewery logos painted on the walls--mostly those from the Midwest and Mid-Atlantic. The service was pretty good, though not fantastic. The bartenders were quite friendly, though not the fastest. Still, we never sat for long when we were interested in something else. The food menu had plenty of offerings and the sandwiches were as advertised: very, very large. Mine was quite good. Altogether, a very nice selection of house and outside craft beers at a good value. Iíll definitely return for a sandwich and a Head Hunter the next time weíre on our way through.

Oddly enough based on the iconography of the logo and the slickness if the presentation I assumed it was a chain. Itís not. They had 6 of their own on tap and 20 other craft brews on tap and, oddly enough, miller lite. The beers were all solid. They have a massive dining room and a very long bar and even an hour before closing time on a Tuesday it was really loud. Iíd go back if I was in the area.
