Great choice for a quick stop before a ball game or to get a beer downtown. Excellent selection of beer in bottles and on draft. Food is typical pub food. Service there has been good for our visits. Sometimes they get special exclusive releases such as Bells Black Note a year or two ago.

This is the most old school, dimly lit, cozy saloon or tavern-like atmosphere of all of the Lizards, which is an absolute mindfuck and a totally welcome feel for the crazy downtown scene it rests in.

Darkly wood-centric, short ceilings and close quarters with lots of live sports being played on the screens over the bar. It has a real camaraderie to it and feels like you're in a rural bar at times, until you step back out into the drizzly downtown streets.

Being a Winking Lizard, you should know the score on the food and beverage front. A very wide selection of rotating drafts and a very respectable selection of bottles will keep newcomers busy combing through the menu. Food is basic bar fare, but always solid and overly filling. Every other person goes for the wings, so you might as well find out why.

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.
