We walked in just to grab a couple beers, and I really enjoyed the openness of the place. Outside seating on the sidewalk, as well as open in the back. A really nice bar in the middle. There was a little construction still going on in the back, but it was not obtrusive at all. The selection was really nice, with locals and some better crafts on tap. I did not get a chance to eat, but the menu looked really nice. Service was great, the bartender was really informative, not only about the beers, but also about the area, and what to do and check out. Average price was about $5 a beer, very fair, and I can't wait to get back there!

Hip and trendy, TownHall has two sides--a smaller, quaint little seated area that, well, no one uses unless they have to, and a very long, long bar paired with a ton of floor space for the crowds to pour in, which they do with great zeal. Theme is woody but modern, and there are a few big screens for the sports addicts, of which there are many in this area.

The tap list is usually shockingly awesome, large, and a bit incongruous with the large crowds that likely bring in most of its service, opting for lite brews and cocktails. Not only is the taplist almost always impressive, but they do crowlers, even on rare stuff.

Food is modern and there are quite a few vegetarian and vegan offerings. It's not bad but nothing great either. Service is so-so.

I entered Townhall on a stormy Saturday afternoon. As I walked in I saw a coffee counter. Being a barfly, I bellied up to the bar with my girlfriend. The place was packed at 2:30 in the afternoon. They had a nice draft list. The bar was located to the left through a dining area. The bar was long with ample seating.

After sampling a couple of the drafts we ordered some food. Being the son of a sheep farmer, I had to order the lamb burger. It was not the best lamb that I have eaten. My driver/girlfriend was unimpressed with her meal. I liked the beers that I had. My only observation was that the beer list, consisting of around 35 drafts, was focused on very few styles of beer. There were no stouts, porters, or brown ales which I thought would have paired better with my lamb. But they know their clientele better than I do. I just thought more variety would have been better than catering to the hopheads.

The service was pretty good, especially considering how crowded the place was. I met some very nice people there. It is a place I will have to revisit. It gets rave reviews, including a good friend of mine. I personally like City Tap better downtown, but opinion are like assholes, everybody has one.

One of my favorites in Cleveland, if not the favorite, which is saying something with Great Lakes Brewing Company across the street.

Beer selection rotates and is generally pretty good. Usually 3-5 beers on nitrogen to change things up. All brews are $5 and they very the serving size 8-12oz.

Food is generally good and seems to be getting even better (given the food scene and all of the neighboring breweries, this is needed to compete so we win as customers). And they have an espresso bar for those not in the mood to enjoy one of the 30+ taps.

Beer to go in 32oz CANS, that are priced fairly well for walk-outs.
