I am a huge football fan and a huge beer fan. I am probably a bit biased towards them since they always seem to be playing my Seahawks on the big screen. As far as beers go, there are some pretty good beers for such a "chain" brewpub. In fact, they are probably my favorite brews from such an establishment. Overall... Not bad.
Ran into this place looking for an IHOP. My roommate has a good eye for the brewpub. Anyway, I really enjoyed this place. The food there is exceptional given it is a bit pricey. The beer is fine. Nothing particularly special, but it’ll beat a Rock Bottom or other big chain brew. It’s definitely a good pit stop for driving west. I recommend.
Big open bar w/lots of Big Screens to watch the game. Usually overcrowded and the service is SLOW. When you get your first beer order your next so that you don’t go thirsty waiting for the next round. Not a great selection of beer just what they have on hand. As for the food I got an exceptional burger, but it is pricey. If your looking for a place to go to watch the out-of-town BSU games you can’t beat the atmosphere.
Typical franchise corporate feel to it, I either sit at the bar, or try to find a seat on the patio near the river. I always like to sit as far away from the bartender as possible at this huge bar, because they always look irrirtated that I interrupted their conversation by making them walk all the way over to where I am. The house beers are absolutely horrid, but they do have a few spot on seasonals. How the bottle rocket won medals is beyond my comprehension.
We were visiting from out-of-town and decided to stop in and check out the brews. They had 8 beers on tap and we ordered a sampler. Altough the bar area was less than 1/3 full, service was painfully slow. All of the beers were good but both the Kolsch and the Hefeweisen were ’outstanding’.
Stopped in ho have a few drinks and not so good food. Not to mention it cost 1 arm and 2 legs to eat at this place. But I wanted to watch my BeLoved Buckeyes beat up on Texas on the big screen. Go Bucks
