Bodega has the best draft selection in Columbus. I think that they are the only bar in Columbus that always has a cask condition beer available. It has a great happy hour that features ½ off drafts and Mondays they have $1 grilled cheese. There is a good amount of parking on high street but you have to pay the parking meters. If you do not mid walking a couple blocks you can find some free parking on some of the side streets. Their food is hit or miss and is a little high priced but it’s better than most bar food. Service can vary but I have never had any issue getting a beer. But I only go during off times when I can get a seat at the bar. The major downside for me is that it can get extremely crowded. Overall, I think that Bodega is a great bar but I would definitely recommend not going during their peak times.

Went to this location while in town for my nephew's wedding. Was motivated by the BA review.
Must have gone to almost 15 places during my weeks visit to the Capital city. This was my overall # 1 place in the Capital City. Went there three times, and every time was great !
Ambiance, Beer selection, personnel and cuisine were superb. Only complaint: the Din gets to be very loud on busy days. Superb Facility !

Have been here a couple of times, once in the early afternoon with my son and once for dinner with a buddy, both visits have been very enjoyable. First time was just there for the beer. They have a really great selection, a lot of good brews that are a bit out of the mainstream in terms of similar selections say at a Yardhouse or similar establishment. If you are a real craft beer hound a definite place to stop. Wait staff was knowledgeable and friendly and prompt; all good things. Second time came for dinner and beer; once again great beer selection and some great suggestions from our waitress. I was pleasantly surprised by how good the food was. From a price standpoint not disappointed at all felt there was value for the dollar.

I was on a biz trip to Columbus - my 1st visit there- and made the impressive discovery of the Short North and this superb establishment. I consider a trip to be a resounding accomplishment when uncovering a place like this one; it's like a crowning achievement and Bodega provided me such a experience. I was there on a very busy Friday and after a brief wait, landed a seat at the bar and made my way through Bodega's rich and deep beer list. There are too many to list here; let's just say if you can't find a suitable pint among their offerings, you never will anywhere else. I had Great Lakes' outstanding Monster and several from Michigan's Dark Horse: the Crooked IPA with Citra and the FF Eert Dekoorc. Splendid in all respects. From the food menu, I opted for their Chef's Salad, which was a very tasty and inventive concoction of strawberries, blueberries and walnut in a citrus dressing. The service and staff are both beer-centric and friendly; I can't wait until my return trip to Columbus which will certainly include a stop @ Bodega!

Walked in late one Saturday night when bar hopping around the Short North. I was with a roommate and my girlfriend, and we found a table right away. I split a bottle of Chimay Red with my roommate, which was fantastic as always, though a little pricey. We ordered food, which considering this was towards the end of our crawl, was much needed. The nachos were excellent and the spinach dip was also good, despite my general dislike for the dish. Good food, good atmosphere and good booze. It was a good time.
