3.7/5  rDev -8.2%

Being a new C-bus resident, I'd heard about this place as a local gem, famous for its good food, 'tude, and ambiance, but I didn't recognize it as having a good beer selection until my wife dragged me into the place before the Doo-Dah parade in Columbus.

For those familiar with Milwaukee, this place reminded me a lot of the Comet Cafe there. Sort of a hipster-crowd and a genre-bending atmosphere...sort of kitsch and saloon-y. The tap selection was good - maybe 15-20 beers on draft, with a pretty good representation of what's available locally. I had a Columbus Brewing Co 90 Schilling, which tasted fresh and good.

The food was pretty good too; I'd seem to remember when I first heard about the place it was in reference to burgers (which they didn't have) and cup-cakes (which my wife informed me were disappointing), but the menu is varied and eclectic. I just wanted a snack, and the Frito Pie fit the bill for me. The meat chili was just OK, but it was really the novelty of making that dish in a restaurant which won me over.

Service was prompt and friendly (especially toward my toddler son, which I wouldn't have expected from the look of the place), but we didn't have a big conversation about beer. The beer menu was out of date (no longer matching what they had on draft) which is a personal pet-peeve of mine.

Still, the experience was decent, and I'd go back when we're in the Short North, although more likely I will make a case to hit Bodega.
