My most recent visit to Barley's was before going to a hockey game on Saturday night. We arrived before 5:00 and took a seat at the bar. Most of the stools were occupied as long as we stayed, and it was a friendly, beer geeky crew. (not meant as a bad thing)

I tried three of Barley's beers: the ale, the scottish ale, and the russian imperial stout. My favorite was the RIS. It wasn't overly powerful for the style, but it was a very drinkable stout. (Ohio has a 12% abv cap for beer). The pale and scottish ale were both good, too.

For dinner, I opted for some comfort food to combat the frigid January weather. I started with a bowl of beef barley soup, and had the sausage and pierogi platter for my main course. Both choices were tasty and warming, and the servings were very generous.

Our bartender was outstanding. She had a full load of patrons, and everyone was well attended to. She was incredibly friendly and seemed very genuine. Knowledge of the menu and the beer was very good, too.

This is very good brewpub. It's across the street from the convention center, and just a short walk from Nationwide Arena. Give it a try.
