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.

When I retired from TA (headquarters in Westlake), I had only been there three years, but the company sprung for a big party for me at Fat Heads (happy to see me go?). It was very well attended - it must have been because it was Fat Heads and free, but thanks to all who attended and the boss who authorized it.

Highly recommended.

The food is good enough that I know plenty of people that come for that alone. With that being said, the beer selection is above-average compared to other local breweries, and they make some of the best IPA’s in the state of Ohio. If you’re a fan of hops and gigantic burgers the size of your head, you’ll dig this place.

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!

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.

This brewpub was not too far from the main brewery and had a good atmosphere. The selection on tap was very good and the service was good. The only negative was that they did not have beers to go.

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!
