My daughter and I ate here and had fantastic individual pizzas and the best IPA ale in town (I had that, not my daughter). Service was great and the location is not far from downtown hotels!

My wife and I were here for an engagement party. Apps were served and were fantastic! Of course the beer was great and the staff was very friendly. Definitely recommend going here even if it's just fro drinks and apps.

I enjoyed a dinner at CBC with a large group of co workers. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. I had salmon with orange glaze and sticky rice. It was average. The atmosphere was fun and the chocolate lava cake with ice cream was fantastic. It is difficult to find the restaurant. All in all we had fun and food... More

Went for dinner for the first time with the family. We enjoyed the food though I was disappointed that they did not have more of their own beer or only their own beer. I would expect a brewery to be self promoting of their own beer and not give service to other beers that they did not produce. I feel... More

My husband and I were in Columbus while my son and a friend attended a basketball training event. We decided to go out for a late lunch while they played. I had read some good reviews and enjoy craft beers, so we decided to try the Columbus Brewing Company. The restaurant had a very nice ambiance, inside and out, with... More

Recently went here for dinner and drinks. It was a Saturday night so very busy. They will only seat 7 people in a party so we had to break up the party of 13 we had originally planned on. The food was very good, huge, huge portions !! The drinks were very good and strong, as they did not skim... More

First off our server Sara was outstanding. She was very friendly, outgoing and had great knowledge on the food, beers and hot sauce. A few friends and I ordered the beer flight to sample a few of their local brews. The sampler was good, but a little pricey compared to other flights. I ordered a vegetarian pizza and it was... More

I can not say how impressed I was with our waitress and our first visit to this place! They make their own butter! Jamie is our waitress and every one of her recommendations were spot on! Please try the Kentucky peach beer because it is awesome!

A little hard to find (behind Kroger's-Front St.) and they have their own lot as parking in this area is at premium. In on a Fri. night about 6 p.m. and seated fast but the place quickly filled up by 6:30 p.m. Had a few varieties of some of their local craft brewed beer. The two drinking beer were not... More

I enjoyed this upscale pub/restaurant while on a business trip to Columbus. They offer a great selection craft beers and the food was good. I highly recommend the Santa Fe pizza and Wood-Fired Pretzel Bread to enjoy with your drinks. Service was outstanding. Look forward to a return visit.
