Fatheads is a beer and food lovers heaven. Fathead's is always busy and has a great buzz there especially during special events. Their beers, guest selections, menu options and service staff all make for visits that will have you coming back for more. The portions of food are gigantic and you will likely need a doggie bag at the end of your meal. Be sure to try their Smokehouse Wings and Headwiches. Fat Head's notable beers which have won several medals include the hopped up Head Hunter IPA, Battle Axe Baltic Porter and Belgian Strong Dark Ale Sorcerer. Fat Heads bar has 2 rotating casks and the only "big" American brew they sell is Miller Lite. Also, they have occasional large format bottle specials, to include stuff from Three Floyds and The Bruery to name a few. In terms of value, the food is reasonable and is always a lot so come hungry. You will spend a little more on beers house and guests beers here but the quality and selection is worth a few extra $$. Overall, Fat Head's delivers exceptional beers, tasty grub, and is a great space for large parties (including a game room equipped with a bowling machine, pool tables and flat-screen TVs for all your sports entertainment)...its a place with A LOT of regulars and a must visit stop if you're a beer (and food) fanatic visiting the Cleveland area.

This is my favorite place in Ohio from my favorite brewery. Tons of drafts, including guests and casks, and the food is phenomenal. The "Headwiches" are a must try. They sell a lot of merchandise and do growler fills, but bottle sales across town at the brewery.

Very cool place to enjoy some VERY good beer and a nice selection of foods. The service was great. Very attentive and fast. We chose the Parma Karma and was a great selection of local, ethnic foods that paired really well with an awesome selection of beer.

Highly recommend!

This place is huge fore a brewpub, and usually busy as well. Have a lot of their beers on tap and some nice Guest Taps as well. Really a great place to go and hang out. The menu is huge and the food is superb. You can buy Headhunter and Bumble Berry in bottles to go as well and merchandise. They will also growler fill anything they have on tap, except cask ale or one offs. They even growler fill guest taps.

Leah and I had a very good experience here. Half off their beers for happy hour (4-6). 38 beers on tap. 15 of theirs. Fairly large seating area with high ceilings. Food selection is above average. Had the brewben sandwich. Yum!

A huge brewpub with a cool history and a great venue. Huge sandwiches, outstanding beers and exceptionally friendly service. The brewery is behind the glass walls, so the beer is always fresh.
