Beer Engine was great a few years ago. The service has gotten awful, and the food is nothing remarkable. Earlier this week I went for lunch with 2 coworkers. The place was DEAD, and we waited 15 mintes for the server/bartender to come to our table and get a drink order. The we waited another 35 minutes to get our food. More than a half hour for hamburgers. They really need better management and a better staff. Until then, I won't be back.

Very unique albeit somewhat small restaurant. Unique beer and sandwiches, loved the homemade Buckeye chips! Not too much space for folks waiting for a table by the door which is where we were sitting so that made things somewhat crowded. Overall we liked this restaurant alot!

Their crafted Buckeye brews are great and priced very reasonable. There are many more tap handles of other craft breweries that will satisfy the tastes of everyone. Burgers are their other specialty, with a variety of toppings that make me trying everyone each time I go. I only wish they hadn't moved to the West side and were still in Bedford Heights!

Good food but slower service. There are many beers to choose from, something for anyone who likes beer. Nice outdoor patio with heaters
for cooler weather.

Our son took us for the first time to Buckeye Beer Engine last weekend. He has eaten there before and enjoyed it. We waited about 45 minutes for a table; although it was a Friday night and they do not take reservations. The restaurant is small with very little room to wait for your table and the bar was already full. We were not disappointed in the food or beer though. They had at least a dozen beers on tap. I enjoyed a caramel stout while the others opted for IPAs. The schnitzel sandwiches were good and the cheddar cheese ale soup was great. The food came out in a timely manner and the restaurant continued to be busy even though it was after 10:00 when we left. Oh, and not a lot of parking either.
