Usually really busy whenever I go which kind of bothers me but the food and beer is worth it. Huge beer selection, and they're all great! The Zeus Juice is like ambrosia.

Nice site for the brewpub: the old Danny Boys produce store. Parking is not great, but the crowds are anecdotally smaller now that the FH beer hall opened in nearby Middleburg. Service is good and the food is above the norm for bar food. Specials can be downright tasty. But you’re here for beer and they make great beer. Many handles. Growlers, croakers and cans meet your beer purchasing needs. Go!

Stopped by for a few drinks when in town. A pretty busy place, with a large bar and a nicely sized seating area. The place had about 15-20 of their beers on tap with near a dozen or so guest taps. The brewery themselves had a decent swath of options, including lagers, some dark beers, a German and Belgian offering or two, and of course a few IPAs. Guest taps included some sours. Fun time, but i could se it being a little crowded for some.

This is a top 3 Brewery for me ever! The combination of quality food and beer is up there with the best. The service was great and the waiter was responsive and fun. I had a 8 beer flight in which the beers are pretty big. The quality of ipas and hoppy beers were phenomenal also had a weizenbock that was very good as well what a wonderful experience! It is a must-see!

Dinner and drinks here on a Thursday it was pretty busy. Beer was solid, food decent, they had a nice tap list with some good guest taps. Kinda feels like an Applebee’s

This place is lit !!! That's the word the kids say these days. Plenty of beer, plenty of fantastic food and the service is outstanding ! My first visit did not disappoint. The Indians vs Blue Jays got rained out but I had a back up plan to visit Fat Heads. The place is huge and spacious with plenty of seating and I doubt there is ever a wait. Pull up at the bar and enjoy a full line of anything you want to drink. Plenty of guest taps and a huge selection of Fat Heads brews, and they brew all styles very well. There is no way anyone's gonna complain about the beer here. The food is phenomenal. A huge menu and you'll definitely have trouble deciding on what to eat. I would suggest browsing the photos on Google before you go that way it'll make your choosing what to eat much easier. After you enjoy this place stop by the gift shop and grab a growler to go and a t shirt. Loved it !!!

Hipster free btw

Place is huge. Service was incredibly efficient and we received our food as quickly as anywhere I've ever eaten. Taplist was extensive and contained a wide variety of styles. I can't recommend the place highly enough and will certainly be returning the next time I'm in Ohio.

The beer is the star of the show here. It’s all quality. The brewpub is big and the service is fast. You’re about 20 minutes outside of Cleveland, but it’s worth the drive.

My old friend, Faith, took me here when they first opened, which was right around the time she moved to the area. I did not go there more than once or twice again until I started working very near by in 2013. I still did not go there often since I live so far away, but my wife's out of town business guests loved it, so it turned into a go-to place for dinners after meetings, and I was often their driver (meaning I had to take it easy on the big brews). Now we are retired, but I still find excuses to drive over to Fat Head's.

They have a brew selection that cannot be faulted. On top of the exquisite brews of their own, they have excellent guest taps, all expertly served. The service is nearly always outstanding. The food is mostly hyper bar food - tasty things in huge servings. Much of their clientele are not really brew aficionados (many of the But Light persuasion) - they come for the food or drink Bumble Berry and think that makes them credible. That's fine, because it is a big, unpretentious place to just have a good time.

Highly recommended.
