Nice brewery - there is a tap room and restaurant. Great beers. Selection is not as extensive, but all the beers were quality on my visit. Excellent and friendly service.

A nice place to visit in Columbus with a nicely lit dinning area and community
table back room for the sports crowd. Beer selection is solid with nice tap selections
for all palate preferences and a food menu that at first glance that may be slim but
is in fact large on taste. The Kentucky Fried Buffalo chicken sandwich is absolutely
fantastic and worth trying. Service was good and friendly with a friendly back room
where there are more growler offerings that would be coming soon when they expand the
brewery with more kegs. They have great potential, especially for only being 4 years old.
Worth the trip and the food alone had us raving all the way home.

A gem in Columbus.

The food I have had has been great, but a little pricey. Their beers continue to impress me in a variety of styles. There is a taproom in the back and a restaurant side up front. Probably over a dozen beers on tap with some carry out sales of bottles. Fairly large place so even if it's busy there is usually room, but it does fill up every weekend. Service has always been good. A beautiful place. Pretty classy looking. My favorite in Cbus and one of my favorite breweries in Ohio.

Went to both the tap room and the restaurant. If you are looking for unique one off beers go to the tap room, not the restaurant. That being said the restaurant is very nice, albeit very loud. Had a fried chicken sandwich that was very good on a fresh pretzel roll with an amazing habanero mustard on the side. Fries were ok, too much parmasean on them. The regular line up of beers in the restaurant were actually stellar the Blkwtr English Mild was a real winner though. The tap room is fairly big with standing tables scattered around with a large bar by the back wall centered. Bottle sales were available off to the left in the back. Some very unique one off beers on tap. Place was packed so can't speak to service, but the beers are fantastic you are doing yourself a disservice if you do not stop.

I was in Columbus for work the other day and had one evening to kill before my job. I looked up the list of local brewpubs and Wolf's Ridge looked like the best selection of beers I like. Walked through the front doors into a large restaurant/bar area with very few people in it. It was about 4:30p on a Friday. The polite waitress told us there was a bar in the back so me and my buddy walked down the hallway and ended up in a legit brewpub bar. The staff was great; we had just about every employee make eye contact with us at some point and ask if we needed anything. There's definitely a team focus on service, which I liked. They were all crazy nice too. The beers were delicious as well. Several varieties of their standard beers made for a couple of nice tasting flights. We did not get a chance to eat here, but I definitely wanted to. The place smelled great. We were told that they just started food service the week before. Looking forward to trying this again when I'm back in Columbus in a couple weeks.

Wolf's Ridge is a wonderful addition to the C-Bus and OH beer scene. I stopped by for lunch and to pick up some bottles on a Tuesday noontime in June 2016. Fantastic service from the very friendly bartender, who let me sample several of the beers before I decided what to fill my growler with. The choice wasn't difficult, since they still had some Canis Mexicanus on tap. Delicious! Not all of the beers were above average, however.

The restaurant is really nice looking--a place I would be happy to bring the family for lunch or dinner. The menu and food is top notch--they were recently featured on the cover of Ohio Magazine! Great work guys!

Wolf's Ridge is easy to get to from I-70 if you are passing through Columbus, definitely worth a stop.

Rustic yet sleek styling, with knowledgeable, helpful and friendly staff, this is part brewpub, part trendy modern restaurant, edging near fine dining if not for the large communal table in the middle. I don't really get the trend towards communal seating in nicer environments, but the bar is always the best anywhere anyway, and it's a nice one here.

Beer is obviously a focus, but they do a lot of unique and high level cocktails as well. But back to the beer, it's of a high quality for sure, and they do a wide range of styles, but only have a small number of taps, with two on nitro while we were there, a stout and an ESB.

The food here outshines the beer, but that's not a bad thing. The beer is good, but the food is great. They are very consistent and well executed dishes coming out at a surprisingly fast pace despite the complexity. Wolf's Ridge is an awesome place to go to brunch, in a town that obsesses over it's brunch options.

A charming pub with trendy decor and fabulous food. Each meal is a modern twist on a familiar comfort food. The staff is extremely friendly and very attentive. Numerous beers were offered, all produced on site and . Some highly innovative offerings, like the Braggot which mixes an amber ale with a locally made mead, and old standards like their outstanding milk stout. My review focuses on the restaurant. I did not explore the tap room, which is reserved for just beer tasting. I will explore that next time.

A top spot in Columbus. The restaurant is nice put pretty expensive. I'd recommend going to the taproom in the back and get right to the beer. The will put just about anything in a beer and they almost always come off solid. The dark beers are very strong. Parking can be a little tricky but the taproom is spacious and you are in a great part of town.
