the bar is way too family oriented for me. Other WInking Lizards feel like a bar.

Stopped in here on a Friday night, and then again on Saturday afternoon. The Friday night the parking lot was packed, but we still managed to get a table right away. Saturday afternoon was fairly slow, but started to pick up as time progressed. Both visits we had knowledgeable servers and relatively quick service. The beer selection is pretty damn impressive. Hundreds of bottles to choose from and it looked like around 40 tap handles from where I was sitting. I did get turned down on a couple requests because they were out, but the replacement ended up being a better seasonal than what I originally wanted anyway, in my opinion at least. For food, the first night I had a burger and fries and the second trip I had a pizza. Both items were very good. Their food menu is nearly as lengthy as their beer menu; several pages long with a good variety. For the most part its generally bar food, but they do add a little flare by cooking some of the offerings with a nice beer, like an Orval Burger. Prices are pretty reasonable, especially the draft prices. They donít tack a whole lot more onto the price of the beers than you would see at a shop or liquor store. Very much worth a visit. I will be back if I am ever in the area.

Itís pretty good beer bar. They have a wide selection of beers on tap and in bottles. Some of their beers are hard to find which can make coming here a bit of treat. I appreciate what they do to get people involved in craft beer. The food is rather good, I had the Greek Chicken Pizza and it was really good. Had that with a lambic and it went rather well. The staff was pretty good except I had this jerk of a bartender (long story). Considering the area, this place is great.

The World Tour of Beer this year features 238 beers, 99 available in bottles. For the 10$ buy in I got a nice spiral bound book describing the program and all the beers, and including a rating chart, schedules for the rotating taps, and access to the online tracker/rater.
Stunningly good raspberry cheesecake dessert this month - perfect with the vanilla porter on tap.

A pretty great place if youíre looking for a beer in Canton, OH. Value is great during Happy Hour, as itís a dollar off all drafts. This month, Goose Island Matilda was on draft (surprising), and I was able to get a pint of that for $4.50, along with a grilled cheese for $3.50. All in all, a great beer with a nice, greasy meal for $10 with the tip. They also have beers from Chimay, Founders, Dogfish Head, Duval, Jolly Pumpkin, etc. Service was nice and quick, but the servers didnít talk much about the beer. Recommended if you find yourself, for whatever reason, in Canton.

The Winking Lizard Franchise is a well-known operation in Northeast Ohio. This was my first time at the Canton outpost and on a Sunday at last call (9:15pm). The staff is friendly and eager to help. Didnít try the food but did as a kid going to the other ones, itís mostly wings, wraps, burgers and nachos. There are 17 flat screens that hog all the space above the long curving bar and even around it. Thereís ample seating at the bar and around the bar with bar tables and regular tables throughout the building. You can either sample the bottles in their medium sized cooler (North Coast Old Rasputin, Thirsty Dog Siberian Night, Founders Breakfast Stout, Samuel Smithís Oatmeal Stout, Great Lakes Nosferatu, Founders Dirty Bastard Scotch Ale, Jolly Pumpkin, Jeffersonís Reserve Bourbon Barrel Stout, Left Hand Milk Stout, Chimay, Orval, etc.) I could be wrong but I believe these bottles are solely there for their "World Beer Tour" promotion: for $10 you get a card and they track your progression through the beers online and offer prizes for the number of countries tasted. On tap they have Goose Island Matilda, Bells Oberon, Stone IPA and some others I canít remember. According to their website they offer free wifi at all there locals, I didnít have my ipod with me but if you have some sort of device with you that would be a nice set up to rate beers on the spot on RB. Probably the best place to stop in Canton if you want good beer but not much else going on there or the city.

Visited here while on vacation in late July í08. My 1st visit to this chain - came away impressed. Sports bar theme with a solid beer selection. Counted at least 100 bottles and about 40 taps. Beer menu laid out well - even had the light beers and macros broken out separately and called them diet beers and something else kind of tongue in cheek for the macros...canít recall at the moment. Had a seasonal special, a local special, a cheap bottle special (Black Label this week) and an import special. Have a beer tour - specifics can be found on the website. Good pub grub, burgers, pizzas, wings etc and friendly, knowledgeable waitresses. Only complaint - did not have more Ohio micros represented.
