Have been in this spot multiple times and have never been disappointed. Parking is conveniently located beside the restaurant. It has a nice patio which is perfect when the weather allows.

I had been once 5 years ago and had a good meal. So I took a bunch of friends recently and we all really enjoyed our dinners and appetizers. Our waiter was excellent - friendly and efficient. The beer was quite good too.

My family and I were on the beginning of our road trip across the country, heading out to SoCal, and looked at a fun place to stop at in Columbus for dinner. I read the reviews of the CBC and decided to give it a try - so happy that we did! We sat on the outside patio, and were... More

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.
