Definitely a really cool place to drink good beers at. Drink some quality beers and go place some arcade games. Pretty busy at night, but calm during the day. Younger crowd at night, during the day there are a lot of people on their lunch breaks. Bartenders are always friendly there. Beer selection is pretty impressive, with 30 beers on-tap, and even more in bottles. A good selection of domestics, imports, and craft brews. The food there is certainly worth a try, too. While they advertise their food as a "mesquite grille" style, they actually do have a very diverse menu, including a bowl of Lucky Charms. Overall, definitely a place worth checking out. Worth the money. (During happy hour, which is weekdays 11-7, drafts are only $2.50). Go check it out, drink some good beers.

I went here last night with my twin sister who is in town from Boston for a few days. It was a Sunday night so the place was fairly quiet. The bar area is in the back of the building and there are 4 or 5 big ass flat screen TV's mounted on the walls showing cartoons and sports games. There was no audio though, at least I couldn't hear it. The bar tender was friendly enough and seemed somewhat knowledgeable about the beers there. The reason I am giving selection a 3.5 instead of a 4 in this review is because they were out of several beers I asked for on my recent visit there. The bar tender said that they are in the midst of making some changes to their beer menu. Maybe I'll change this rating after my next visit there. Some of these offering they were out of include selection from Anchor Steam, The Brooklyn Brewery and Sapporro. They did have offerings available from Great Lakes, Sam Adams, Guinness, Coors, Bud, Miller, Goose Island, the Abita Brewing Company, and Pacifico among others. This bar also has a very good selection of modern video arcade games as well as a few classics such as Pac Man, Centipede, Missile Command, Gallagha, Joust, etc. and games such as Skee Ball and Air Hockey. My sister and I mostly played the old school games and the Air Hockey and Skee ball. We tried a few of the new video games, but in our opinion the new ones just aren't as good as the old ones. Some of them are too hard to control. We didn't get any food this time. The beer prices seemed reasonable to me. Not really any more expensive or cheaper than your average bar in this area. This bar is good to visit if you want to good beer and to play some arcade games, or if you want to watch the big sports games on big TV's.

The Boneyard has made a name for itself with locations in Brecksville and Downtown Cleveland. Personally I've never been a big fan of them, but this one changed my mind. First off the atmosphere here is great. Probably one of the best places to catch a football game. All the games are shown, in HD if a available, and there is also a movie screen size broadcast for the main game.

As far as beer goes the selection is average at best for the area. Boneyard claims to be a beer farm, but they mostly tote their BMC brews and don't know much about their craft brews. However you will find SN and its seasonals Great Lakes and usually a tap that has something other than BMC to offer. I believe it was Newcastle when I was there.

There is also a huge game room with all kinds of fun things to waste money on. Very similiar to a Dave and Busters. Overall its an enjoyable experience, but the idea that they term themselves a "beerfarm" leaves a bit to be desired.
