Went here alone on business. Crowded night but not overwhelming. Really enjoyed it, but in nearly every aspect there was a "but" statement. The environment was intimate and expansive at the same time...BUT the image they are trying to project is muddled by formica-looking countertops on the bar, which projects a weird Arby's image. Service was knowledgeable and helpful... BUT once I had bellied up to the bar it took way too long for someone to take my initial order. There were some wonderful, and I mean wonderful beers on tap: Columbus, Super Fresh H.O.P, and most of all Bodhi, one of the best beers in the country....BUT, those are all IPAs, and everything not IPA was quite pedestrian. 8-10 CBS beers on tap....BUT no guest beers whatsoever. That was a bummer.Food was delicious - stroganoff pasta, interesting modernized take on the standby and the 'tizers ordered by people around me looked tasty as well....BUT $16 was a bit much, and contributed to my overall sticker shock. Did not expect a flight, a tulip, and noodles to run $32.

I had a great time and if I keep coming to Columbus, I shall return without question. Overall the Buts keep CBC from being great, but it is a very good joint.

Went here for lunch on Saturday afternoon with the girlfriend and some of her friends. They actually suggested it! I didn't have to slyly suggest another beer stop. Killer.

They only had 3 Columbus beers on tap (IPA, Pale Ale, and Summer Teeth) I indulged in Summer Teeth, an excellent summery Kellerbier. They had about 8 other guest taps from local Ohio brewers. I would have gotten White Rajah if I hadn't already gotten a 6 pack of it and already drank bottles before even purchasing that. Good selection of beers, but wish there was more from the actual brewery the restaurant is partnered with. The Columbus Pale Ale and Jackie O's Razz Wheat were ordered by other members of the party and praised.

The location is cool in the Brewery District- they have a nice open bar area inside, with a big dining room. We sat on the outside patio, which was awesome.

The food was good, prices weren't terrible, but weren't exactly cheap either. Got a really tasty pizza- two of my compadres, including my girlfriend, got the pulled pork sandwiches, which looked good, and confirmed good by the person actually eating them. Our other companion got the tilapia sandwich which was similarly praised.

The service is prompt and friendly- really the two best things to describe for restaurant. Our waitress didn't seem to know much about beer, or at least didn't show off her knowledge, but joked with us the whole time and was very friendly.

I would definitely stop in here again, just wish they had more Columbus Brewing Beers.
