This spot is on the corner of a major intersection in a strip mall so its not hard to find and has plenty of parking. The outside of the building and patio are pretty cool, playing with the whole boneyard theme, and might be a nice place to hang out during the summer.

Inside the decor is much more chain restaurant-esque. Various breweriana and random objects fixed to the walls. Away from the bar, the main dining area is set somewhat like a theatre, with three very large projection screens. The bar has enough elevated T.V.'s that you won't miss whatever sporting event is currently being broadcast. I usually stop here for a quiet lunch, but the night crowd is much more rowdy, especially on the weekends.

Service is on the slow side, but the bar maids and waitresess are usually very accomodating and polite. Plus they have a beer list, which always scores points with me.

48 beers on tap - 29 of which are craft; and 2 ciders. Lots of bottled beer and cheap PBR cans always available. One oddity is the "mystery beer" - a skull shaped tap that dispenses a secret beer, which I've come to find out is usually just a leftover Sierra Nevada or Samuel Adams seasonal. 11am thru 7 pm is happy hour during which all draft beer is $2 a pint (more like 12 oz.). Otherwise the prices are about the same as most places; the food is a little cheaper but it's still your average pub grub.

I don't know of any other beer bars in the area, but if I were a Broadview Hts local I wouldn't feel at a total loss.

The Boneyard, as far as beer goes, defines blah. With that said, I do frequent this place quite a bit since it is currently less than a mile away from my place. They have a decent selection....sometimes. They claim to be a beer farm, and do have quite a few taps. Unfortunately these taps are mostly BMC products. This Boneyard does have a good selection of Great Lakes and Sam Adams (regulars along w/ seasonals) along with some Stone, SN, etc. The atomosphere is a plus. It is a great place to catch a game with the huge screens. The food is a bit better than the average pub fare - they just spice up the pub far a bit. The food is tasty.

The service - is HORRIBLE. My score is mostly directed at the bar service - when seated we have had average service. The bar service is horrible. The bar tenders can hardly ever tell you what seasonals are on tap (don't go by the list, I believe it was last updated in 2002), I've been given the wrong beer on occassion (Boston Lager when I asked for a SN Bigfoot, and I had to argue to get the SN poured), and you might as well pitch a tent while waiting for a beer at the bar - the service is EXTREMELY SLOW!

Overall- this place really is not that bad- they have decent food, atmosphere, and selection - but the service is really bad and that gets annoying after visiting so many times.

This will be much like my last Boneyard review, since they are very similar. The main differences is that this location (Broadview Heights) has 48 beers on-tap, as opposed to the 30 beers on-tap at the Mayfield Heights location. The Arcade/Game Area of the Mayfield Heights location is much bigger, though.

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 48 beers on-tap, and 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.
