A very, very good place in Dublin, not far from it all.
First the beers. A great selection. I'd say at least 50+ taps. Pretty good selections too. No shitty beers, and they highlight local and Ohio brews. You can also get half and full growlers to go. I am not sure if they have bottles though.
The food. They focus on local farmers as well, so another plus. I ate there twice, including once during a busy lunch. Both times, the food was very well prepared and good.
Definitely worth a visit if you are around. Sit at the bar, and try some samples, bring the family and enjoy a great meal and great craft brews!

I recently moved out of this neighborhood to PA and was back in the area on business and visited The Pint Room for the first time on a slow afternoon. It's hard not to like a place that has almost 100 different beers on tap - and easy to ding a place that is so totally corporate and does nothing to hide that fact, especially when located in a modern-shopping center in an affluent suburb, in this case the part of Dublin, Ohio which I always referred to as "Generic Dublin." Having lived here, I'm pretty used to cookie-cutter-corporate establishments, and so I chose to look right past that and enjoy a couple of pints. To say it is a Beer Mecca would be an understatement. If you like your craft beer and cannot find something here to enjoy then you need to have yourself checked out!
While my first visit to The Pint Room was pleasant enough to merit a return trip, it did not PREPARE me for that return trip.
My next visit was on a busy evening and the place was probably at 75% capacity. I had been looking for a quiet place to enjoy a couple of beers but this was not, nor will it ever be "it." The first thing to hit me was the almost unbearable noise level. It seems that due to the smooth interior design surfaces and building materials used, there is absolutely nothing to absorb the jarring, reverberating sound of people talking, which seemed more like yelling after only a few minutes. The sound just bounced around and around and yet, it was just people talking and having fun. Nobody was acting a fool!
Those reading this who may say "but you have to expect a lot of noise with a lot of people" will get no argument from me. However, I could name 10 establishments off the top of my head where the same number of patrons would be unable to generate that kind of jarring, reverberating noise that you get at The Pint Room and places constructed that way.
Once in awhile it might be fun to go back, but usually I'm looking for a place where I can enjoy some beers and hold a conversation without yelling. So it will have to be on a slow day. I did not dine here but the food looked as though it was prepared with some care and attention.

This place was such a great find! As someone who's in the area only every few months, I was thrilled to stumble upon a one stop location for tons of taps and great food. It was a bit overcrowded (and heavy on the hipsters) for dinner on a Friday, but getting a beer at the over-full bar was easy enough.
The beer menus were a bit confusing as the list on the wall was out of date, and the mobile site showed an update for the same day that didn't match what was available. We tried to plan our attack, however had to quickly formulate a new plan when the bartender gave us the night's beer menu printout. Close to 100 taps of many different styles, with a great selection of local options. The selection was so varied and changes daily, so I'd recommend peeking at the website if you want a "general" idea of what's on tap, and then consult the menu.
Once seated we ordered a crab cake appetizer, which was quite enjoyable and more than standard pub fare. We also selected 10 mini beers (as each person can order 5) and it was a great way to try new taps at only $1-$1.5 each. Dinner was great too, though I was so full from the brews and appetizer that most of mine was boxed up to go. I've had a lot of sweet potato fries in my day, and these were hands-down my favorite so far.
I'd highly recommend this place, and look forward to coming back when they're not busy to talk beer with the staff.

This is the latest contender for THE craft beer destination in Dublin, OH. Located just to the east of Riverside Drive on Rt. 161 in Dublin in the new River Ridge shopping center. It's easy to recognize as it's about the only place in that shopping center with cars in front of it! It has been open for over 6 months but I have only been here twice in the past month and it is now my go-to drinking establishment in Northwest Columbus. Whether it is to watch a local game, have lunch after work, or just chill with some friends -- The Pint Room seems to be the perfect place to do all of this.
The atmosphere is perfect for someone like me. There are TVs with the sports on if you want to watch but otherwise there is plenty of table space away from that, as well as a nice patio outdoors if you are just trying to have a nice gathering of friends and/or family. The staff is attentive and always friendly in a genuine way. The bathrooms are easily accessible and easy to find. You can smoke outside but they are a bit picky as to how far away from the building you have to be in order to smoke. The bar seats are comfortable and there are foot-rests at the actual bar which is great for both short and tall folks. The bar is huge because they have 100+ taps -- it literally wraps around one whole side of the restaurant.
The restaurant is always spotless; from the bar to the men's room it is very clean. All of the staff is very knowledgeable about what they serve and are very attentive to the customers' needs. The servers use iPhones to take orders and this seems to keep them knowledgeable about what is available on tap and helps in getting the correct orders to the kitchen and back to the table quickly.
As I said, there are over 100 beers on tap here. About a third of these taps are Ohio-brewed beers (which is great). Lots of Columbus Brewing, Fat Head's, Weasel Boy, Rivertown, Jackie O's, Seventh Son, etc can always be found on the draft menu here. There are only a few BMC taps -- the other 100 taps are craft taps. There are always special tap-only offerings during the week from other craft breweries (most notably Three Floyds) that always keep this place worth exploring. They keep their menu regularly updated through BeerMenus.com which is awesome! The menu here is mostly gourmet burgers and sandwiches but the appetizers are great as well. The portions are fair-to-generous for what you pay. The price for drafts seems to be the same as most other local establishments but considering the great selection here, it makes the price a little more worth it.
Other than the lack of a designated smoking area outdoors, my only other complaint about The Pint Room is that the beer isn't always served in the proper glassware for the style you order. It's not that big of a deal to me, especially when they're busy and have special taps going. It can be a little loud during the weekend nights but what bar with good taps isn't?
This is my place of choice for craft beer in the Dublin/Northwest Columbus area. Plenty of parking, always a good selection of craft beers to choose from, and a nice mix of like-minded people make The Pint Room a great spot!
