We were walking around the German and Brewery districts and found CBC just in time for lunch. Our meals were very good and served quickly. The service was pleasant. The beer was local and good.

Visited on a Sunday afternoon. The restaurant was not busy, most of the servers were standing around. We waited 45 mins. for our food and our server never returned to our table. The wait was not worth the mediocre food. I will not return.

My friend and I stopped in for dinner, we wanted to eat at a restaurant in Columbus that offered its own line of craft beer. We were not disappointed, while the food and drink was very fresh and tasty, the service really shines here. The atmosphere is what we all have come to expect from a sit down brewpub of... More

I've been to CBC a few times over the years and have always been happy with my food. But I have to admit, it's never the first (or second, or third) place that comes to mind. I think that's because of its location. The restaurant is set back away from everything, and with the construction lately, it's an easy area... More

We went here with a group of 10. We were seated on the patio. I had the Cuban burrito. It was just average. I didn't think it had much vegetables in it like advertised. Kind of blah tasting. The spinach dip was blah as well. My husband had the fried tilapia sandwich and said it was average.We were disappointed with... More

Very extensive bar-food menu and more. Sandwiches, pizzas, wraps, salads and some nice looking entrees. My goal though at the end of this 4 day road trip was the triple decker thick-cut garlic bologna sandwich with Swiss & Provolone cheese, caramelized onions and mustard on ciabatta. I wasn't disappointed. Top that off with slaw, garlic fries and a Bodhi Double... More
