This place is a joke if you're anything but white. Me and my fiance visited this restaurant and was dressed very nice looking good, much better than most if not all of the white people in there but we were asked upon entering (around 4 or 5 minutes) if they could help us with something like we stumbled in there...

Small little place that looks cool on the outside but doesn't really fit in with the historic neighborhood. For being the Columbus Brewery I'm guessing I was thinking of something larger in an old brick building with some history. It's seems to be equally a restaurant as it is a tap room. We were there just for the beer but... More

I went there just a few times, but I loved this place. Good beer and good food. Bhodi IPA is awsome! The place is very charming and the waitress was very helpful and kind.

I go both for the draft craft beers and for the food. Their breads are also outstanding. The basic menu is moderately priced. They have specials that are a bit expensive but worth every penny - I especially am fond of the Walleye dinners that are often the special of the day. Their pizza and a pint deal Sun-Thur is...

While this is a full-blown restaurant, I just stopped in a couple weeks ago for some CBC house beers. I ordered a flight, which here comes with five beers. There wasn't a bad one in the bunch either...which really surprised me. The Columbus IPA is an intensely bitter American-style IPA that any hophead should love. The Bodhi, while a stupid... More

Strange for a brewing company to not have any of its own beers available. Anyway, other Ohio beers were available and they were good. The food was average and the service good. I'm not sure I'll go back but it's an okay place.

we visited CBC on Wednesday, and haven't eaten hear in about a year. We used to frequent this establishment 4 or 5 years ago on a regular basis, it just isn't the same. Most of the menu items are still the same, some updating or rotation would be nice. My husband had the burrito and found it to be bland,... More

For reasons that are unclear to me it had been many, many years since I visited this restaurant. I don't need to be such a stranger because the beer is simply some of the best around, I had their Columbus IPA, and the pulled pork sandwich was top notch. I was with a group of 9 having an early dinner... More
