I'm kind of biased toward this because it was my introduction to a large selection of craft beers plus I snagged a lot of free glassware and tee shirts. Even though other places have passed them in adventurous taps, I'll still stop in.

Great selection of beer, both bottle and draft. I had a couple of IPAs, Heavy Seas Tropicannon and Stone Delicious IPA. Food was ok. Service was excellent.

My first time at this particular Winking Lizard. Service was a bit on the slow side, but we stopped in prior to a Cavs game, so it was certainly understandable. Tremendous beer selection as generally reasonable prices. Food is above average pub fare. Wouldn't hesitate to return.

Had never been, so my wife and I went here for dinner on our way to see Lewis Black at the State Theater (great show, but I digress). Fantastic beer list, and a good selection on tap. Had one of the best burgers ever there, cooked just right, and the fries were extra crispy as requested. Wife said she wished the chicken in her Asian chicken wrap was a little warmer, but said it tasted good, just the same.

I had a Great Lakes Octoberfest and a Brother Thelonious on tap. Too bad no GL Nosferatu on tap -- surprised when the waiter said that it wasn't out now, they had it earlier in the year. Interesting, since we just got it from our distributor a couple weeks ago (writing this in mid-September) and the GL web site lists it as September-October. Oh well. There was so much else to choose from.

But + points to the waiter for steering me away from the Rueben, which I was thinking about getting (the look on his face when I asked about it told me all I needed to know). Hence the very satisfactory burger.

The place had a homey sort of look to it, don't look for glitz. Friendly staff, the hostess kindly called a cab for us to take us to the theater.

I would go back here. More beers to try.
