Not for your diet ...

It's not diet friendly because the portions are HUGE, but the food is always good ... only drawback is that it's a popular place, so it's often crowded - that can sometimes compromise the service level.

We stopped for lunch around 2pm, so I'm not sure what the usual lunch or dinner crowd might be. My husband and I ordered the smokehouse sampler to share: 3 rib bones, a portion of smoked brisket, pulled pork and 2 wings for $18.99. The brisket, wings and pulled pork were ok -- just ok. But the ribs were amazing... More

No trouble getting a table 5 pm on a Friday, but there was a bit of a wait for those just getting there as we left. Didn't appear to be much room for waiting. Bar area looked fun and was a bit loud (TV's etc.). Dining room was part rustic, part clean. I'm no interior decorator, but it seemed to... More

Lager heads is a very laid back environment with great food! I have tried a lot of the food on the menu but my favorite is the big butt! Pulled pork on a bun with lots of fries! Definitely not a place you should go to if you're trying to eat healthy but the atmosphere is fun and a great... More

The smoked wings, ribs and pulled pork are great. A fun place to meet friends. The bar area gets a little crowded and noisy. The dining room on the opposite side is quieter.

We met several couples for dinner on a Friday night at about 7pm. The wait was minimal, which was enough for us to order High Fives and Bed Head beers. For dinner we had the "Big Butt" and the "Sloppy BBQ". Served with a variety of sides, we had chips, fries and coleslaw. The pulled pork was delicious with a... More

From the outside Lager Heads is small & fairly nondescript. Inside, small & simple bbq shack decor. The food & service are outstanding! Started with the fresh, house made pork rinds. Amazing! Crunchy, sizzling & perfectly salted. I had the barbecued smoked chicken, hush puppies & baked beans for $17.99. The chicken was sweet, smokey & oh so tender! Crispy... More

We had fun and liked the food but it was so crowded and LOUD it was hard to have a conversation. I did try my husbands ribs and they were GREAT ..even without sauce. Fell of the bone. I might go back just for the ribs. All 6 of us had good food and nice selection of beer.

If you are traveling on route 71 outside of Cleveland I would highly recommend stopping here. I had the BBQ combo platter and it was excellent. The portions were very generous and I was not able to finish mine. They also make their own beer. I tried the stout and thought it was very good. My traveling companion had the... More
