I visited this brewpub 5 times so far with my family. Place was extremely busy two times, very busy other three. Service was excellent every time! Very friendly but fast and efficient once you get a table- typical wait on busy day was 10-25min. Very nice, tasteful decor, plenty of space between tables or booths. We tried different menu items each time - food was great - portions are huge!! I tasted so far 7 of their beers, all of them were excellent, Starlight Lager and Goggle Fogger are my personal favorites. This brewpub is a great addition to Clevelandís area restaurant scene. (Only problem - my family keeps asking me to go back too often!!)

Its a little out of the way, sure, but this place is pretty awesome. Its huge. Absolutely huge. Glass windows allow you to see the brewing equipment on both sides of the entrance, the rest of the establishment is half sports bar, half family restaurant with light woods and visible rafters. Attractive.

Their guest taps are pretty diverse, and their own offerings plentiful. Service was good, attentive and friendly - as good as you would hope or expect in a place that can seat four hundred! Food is amazing - I had the pulled pork sandwich and it was served on a six inch across bun and had to be at least five inches thick with a knife stabbed into it. I presume to prevent it escaping. My boyfriendsí burger was equally as large and was cooked to perfection. They also offer a brewed on premises root beer that is just wonderful. Iíd recommend this to any in the area, certainly. Weíll be back.

Had the occasion to visit here with my brother during a recent trip to Cleveland. We went after having lunch elswhere, so I canít comment on the food. We had about three of the beers brewed on the premises, and they were all good. There were 7 Fatheads taps, and about 20 guest taps which were impressive. Among others, they had Ruination, Aventinus, Boris the Crusher, GL Edmund Fitzgerald, Bigfoot, Gouden Carois Grand Cru, Racer 5, Founders Dirty Bastard, and Brother Thelonius. They also have two casks that come on Friday evenings at about 5:30. From what the bartender told us, the cask beers are often gone before the evening is over. Hopefully, theyíll extend the cask offerings to other nights of the week. Bartenders were very frindly and knowledgeable. Itís a big place, and has been extensively remodeled. It is a very attractive space with a large bar area. Itís not too far from Brew Kettle, close to the airport. Definitely worth a trip if youíre in town.

A great addition to the local beer scene. Great food with huge sandwiches. Great service with enought space to accomidate many customers and keep waits short. They offer great barbeque and smoke their own meats - excellent. The beer, also, is great. High quality house brews of many styles with a nice assortment of guest taps.

Went to lunch here on a Wednesday. Weird location situated amongst Great Clips and Deluxe Nails. A very large building with lots of bar room and sitting options. Hilarious staff hanging outside with such great updates as "my ex-girlfriend left me for her crack dealer". Service was excellent, helpful and very friendly. Food was huge, delicious and varied so come hungry and thirsty. About 8-10 of their own brews on the list as well as about 22 guest taps. Great place, happy to find it in Ohio.

I have been to this place 2 times in the past month. Service has been quick and friendly both times. They really go out of their way to please. This used to a farmers market type place so its huge and very spacious. Nice ambiance. Family friendly which is important to me. They have 9 beers on tap that they brew on premise and another 10 or 15 guest taps that seemed pretty good. Both times I ordered food and both times the food was REAL spicy. Luckily I like spicy food. They really need to put on their menu they serve spicy food. Even better to identify which items are spicy. Someone I was with said they had friends visit and could not eat the food because it was too spicy. They will run the risk of alienating customers if they donít fix this. And fast. Overall I was very pleased and I look forward to what kinds of beers they come up with.

Visited the first week they were open for lunch. Nice spacious place, not too busy around lunch time, but busy enough. Had 9 beers on tap, sampled 5 or 6 of them. They were all good to outstanding. Similar to Rocky Riverís offerings when Matt Cole was brewing there. My wife and I split 2 pizzas which were outstanding! The service was excellent and the server was fairly knowledgeable regarding the house beers. Nice selection of guest taps as well. It was a Friday and they were tapping 2 firkins later in the evening, which was cool but I wish I could have tried them when I was there. Overall, an awesome place and a great addition to the local beer scene.

Very nice to have a new place in town and its already got a better guest list than anyone with the exception of Beer Engine. The house brew is solid as well. Very big inside with good ambiance... not sure why some think it feels chain-like. This used to be a farmers market, and it keeps the same type vibe while being completely different. The menu is very cool and would take a year to try everything. Service has been pretty good also.

Was incredibly crowded the first few days but is now just very busy most times. Beer selection on tap is very good (9 -10 house brews and 12+ other craft brews). Food is good and portions are very large. Service was excellent and the staff was knowledgeable. Highly recommended.

This is an extremely large building with lots of space and a huge bar. On the flip side that also means it gets loud very easily. Fortunately it was fairly empty when I arrived though by 6:00 PM the place was packed.
The food servings are enormous so be prepared and come hungry. Likewise the beer list is as good as it gets. On top of nine or ten house taps there were around twenty guest taps ranging from IPAs to pale ales to imperial stouts. On par with the typical offerings at the Brew Kettle and Beer Engine I think I would rate this place just a notch below the latter and a bit above the former.
Check this out if you are in the area. I expect it to stay around for a while despite the competitive environment in the area.
