Had a great quick dinner before the Blackhawks/Blue Jackets game. Arrived at 5pm with a reservation. The place filled quickly so a reservation would be a good idea on game nights. I had the Buffalo Chicken Sandwich and my wife had the steak. Both meals were very good. They also have a great selection of beers. Service was quick and... More

Our son and his GF had wanted to go here for some time, so we went here the weekend before Christmas. We weren't disappointed as the food was very good as well as the brews. The ambiance is in line with the name and the place reeks trendy. Plenty of parking outside, but beware it it's raining hard, as the... More

After getting off of I-70, we found the Columbus Brewing Company. The food and beer were excellent. I really enjoyed the stout and brown ale. Definitely worth the stop.

A nice friendly bar with good and varied background music. Playing 'guess the artist' was good fun but we had to resort to Google sometimes. A relatively small range of beers but those I tried were very good. All beers are home brewed. The food was excellent and plentiful, all delivered efficiently by our very friendly waitress. The cost was... More

We made a last minute decision to stop at this restaurant since the one we went to first had a long wait and we were on a time constraint. We weren't disappointed. I had the beer cheese soup and a Caesar salad, and our table had the pretzel bread appetizer. Everyone seemed to enjoy their food. Our server was very... More

We went to the Columbus Brewing Company while in town for a Blue Jackets/Tampa Bay Lightning hockey game. We arrived shortly after the lunch rush, just as the last of the business people were leaving. It is definitely more upscale-type place than most micro-brew restaurants that we've been to, but warm and cozy, too. We had the Hot and Sour... More

Great beer and food. Service was great. Several styles of beers that were on tap were blown and not available which was not cool for one of the largest breweries in Columbus (knocked this review down to 3 stars instead of 4). Other than a few missed beers the experience was great. The location is a little out of the... More

I was here for a work lunch, so unfortunately I didn't get to try any of CBC's beers. I have had their IPA and Pale Ale in bottles and on draft at other establishments in the greater Columbus area, so when I go back I look forward to trying them here. I ordered the Cuban burrito off of their lunch... More

Went there after a business work day. Great for groups. Wonderful craft brewed beer. Staff Friendly and attentive. I had the chili.. and i thought it was really good.. spicy!.. pizza looked good and the appetizers (Calamari and nachos ) were tasty. I'd go back again.

My husband is the beer fanatic, so since we were headed to Columbus for the OSU game, we had planned on making this our lunch destination. The atmosphere is a bit confusing... like brew pub trying to be upscale. If you look at the menu online, beware that not everything is available at all times. We were there at lunch... More
