The food was good. The staff was very friendly and accommodating to our group of hockey families that was about 40 people. Good experience!

Under staffed for busy post buckeye home game and word series game. They told us this when we arrived they were slammed with big groups. Very loud but no sound on any screens until the series was in the 4th. Food was average. If you want multiple screens to view sports and drink, this is your place. Ample free parking.... More

Love the wings and atmosphere here at the winking lizard. Great choice of beers and a wonderful staff that was very pleasant. Prices are reasonable and the food is great.

Liked this chain of sports pub/restaurants. Have tried a couple in Columbus. Great evening this week at the Winking Lizard off 23 in Columbus. They had a truly enormous beer selection and great food.

Sports bar. There were at least 20 TVs. Good view from anywhere. Free Popcorn!!! Plenty of beer choices. great specials, wings and burgers. Lot of fun on Friday. It was kind of dead on Saturday. (even though there were some good college football games on) Maybe the early OSU game tired everyone out. Great service great location.

We went in with our 3 sons and their girlfriends. Service was terribly slow. Should have known better when the waiter messed up our drink order. Then it took almost 40 minutes after ordering to get our "food". They messed up 3 of 8 orders. My loaded potato skins were overcooked and left sitting before being served to the point... More

The menu is rather large, but it's all the stuff you'd expect. I had a steak sandwich that was good, and their wings looked great. I tasted one of the sauces and the heat was about right for its level on their scale. I'd imagine their hottest could be painful (in a good way)!

Food was average; service mediocre. I had the 10 pack Buffalo Wings (mild bbq) w/blue cheese. It was served with only one branded blue cheese serving (it could handle only two wings!). Good luck getting the second serving (took the waiter 10 mins to get me the second). Wife had bbq St. Louis ribs (appetizer plate) - a bit dry... More
