This is a *big* place. There's a restaurant area to the left as you walk in, and a bar to the right. My friends and I showed up on a Friday night, and there was a live band with dancing. Not a terribly *good* live band, but...

Beer selection was pretty boring. A wheat, a pale, a light, and an oatmeal stout on tap. The oatmeal stout seemed the most interesting, but even it is was only about a 3.7 or so. Far outclassed by Great Lakes Brewing's Porter, from up the road.

More of a hangout spot than a beer spot -- but there are probably better places for both in town. (575 characters)

First time visit was for the Nutsmasher release so it was a mad house. They did the best they could to try and keep up with serving, but I would have to guess on a non event day, this place would be really chill. Great beers and great apps. I do plan on returning to get a full meal and more of that great beer! (311 characters)

My first visit to Willoughby's was for the Nut Smasher release. Given the large turnout, service was extremely slow; however, the bar/restaurant was very nice, and I would definitely return for a non-event visit. (212 characters)

Hit the WBC during a biz trip through NE Ohio. It was my 2nd visit and was very pleased both times. The Daisy Cutter is a must have for the IPA fan and their Christmas Ale is one of the best of breed. They generously brew that as part of a 'Christmas in July' celebration, which coincided with one of my visits.

Food here is also excellent; you can really do well if you show up @ Happy Hour, when appetizers are 1/2 price. Service was very friendly and accommodating.

Kudos to the owners on the fine job of converting a former railroad station to a pub/restaurant use which provides a very appealing and comfortable setting to enjoy WBC's good works. (653 characters)

I only had the Peanut Butter Porter, which was pretty good. I really enjoyed the food. I had the pretzel, chicken spring roll and their version of a corn dog (a kielbasa with a jalapeno & corn batter). (203 characters)
