Heavenly

The first thing that comes to mind when thinking about 101 Beer Kitchen is "HIDDEN GEM". This place doesn't really have the reputation that it deserves, but in all seriousness the food is top quality. VERY delicious. They have a unique menu, and everything I've tried is...

Maybe I'm Easy to Please - Or This Place is Wonderful?

Barley's Brewing is precisely what you'd expect from the typical Brew Pub in the Columbus area. That being said, I would contend that Barley has above average food, the beer seems very fresh, and the ambiance is always awesome. You can expect to laugh with the staff,...

Not your Grandma's Whiskey Bar

Let's separate the men from the mice right up front shall we? Barrel 44 Whiskey is dedicated to their craft of spirits, whiskey, and Bourbon. If you want to experiment with some different Whiskey, this is the place to go. They also serve a decent selection...

Nice and Cozy - With some Good Food and Drink!

Overall Betty's delivers where it promises. It promises a good time, with decent food, good ambiance, and reasonable prices. This is NOT the best food in Columbus, but generally the food is above average. Also, the ambiance is very friendly, and the staff is always nice. Overall, I would give...

Elite Food and Wide Variety of Beer

Honestly? The food is over-the-top delicious. The burgers are very flavorful, the fries are KILLER, and there's such a massive array of beer. Seriously. If you like good munchy type food (burgers, fries, sandwiches), and also love beer? You literally CANNOT miss at the Columbus Brewing Company.

Cheap Food and DIRT CHEAP beer!

The best thing about the Elevator Brewery is definitely the atmosphere. It's very Modern and sleek looking. Also, it's one of the best places to go out for a few drinks because during Happy Hour the drinks are VERY cheap. (A few bucks), and the food is very cheap. ...

Good Munchies and Cheap Booze! (Fun Time)

All in all it's a fun time, decent bar and funny staff

I'll be honest... Looking at the place from the outside it isn't really much. But once you get inside it isn't that bad. I went in with a few of my friends and we ordered some fries and a few rounds, and the staff was actually pretty funny. The inside...

Easy to Miss... But Worth Finding

Top of the Flint is a "no frills" place to get some low priced drinks. It's kind of in a weird location, and you could easily walk by it without knowing what it was. That being said, in my humble opinion it's a hidden gem! There's a ton of cheap...

One of the best settings around for a good time and great drinks

As soon as you walk into the Worthington Inn, you'll find that it's definitely different. The atmosphere feels like a mansion instead of a restaurant. I guess it's more of an INN, but there's definitely fun times to be had. If you want something different, you can go in here...

I've always had fun going here... Good selection of Beer

The ambiance is better than average, and the food is relatively delicious. Nothing fancy about the food by the way, just typical sandwhiches, fries, burgers, wings, but they're all cooked well with good ingredients. As far as the drinks? Well the beer list is surprisingly lengthy, and I didn't ask...

Cheap Booze, Loud Place... NO FOOD?

Typical Night Club Style, Cheap Drinks, Fun Times

Rucket Robert C is your typical night club. Lots of dancing, music, drinks. If you're going out for a party, it's worth checking out. If you're looking for something more quiet and peaceful... Definitely look elsewhere.

Great Place for a Wild Party :)

Roadhouse 66 is a great place for a party. Lots of fun, very loud, but at the same time it's clean. The food is pretty good, and the staff knows how to have a good time. Lots of beer, lots of noise, and lots of fun.

At the end of the day? A great place for a few drinks with friends

The beer is a tad expensive here, and the cocktails are too, but on average I think the drinks taste a little better here. Also, the food is relatively delicious, for bar food that is. At the end of the day, the Press Grill is a great place to stop...

The margaritas are massive, ice cold, and tasty! And the best part? The food! The food is so good, and is arguably the best Mexican food in Columbus, period. (I've tried a few places, and this one is the best). The staff is super friendly, and know a lot about...

Wicked Cheap Beer & Ridiculously Cheap Food

First thing you need to know, is that the food is RIDICULOUSLY CHEAP. Sure it's Ethiopian food, but still at the prices they ask, I'm not sure how they keep in business. The food is very cheap, and actually pretty tasty. If you're up for some wild drinks? Ask what...

Who wants chinese beer? The food here is good, and the rotation is fast. Most buffets suffer from what I call a... "Rotation problem" where the food sits around. That's not a problem here, and everything seems fresh. Another thing, yes, they DO have beer here, so don't panic. :)...

Okay if you're a college partier... Not my style

The problem with Gaswerks is that it's a tad on the "hipster dufus" side. Lots of frat kids that want to go there and play with their iPhones. It's loud, and gave me flashbacks of an obnoxious college party I attended long ago. It's okay if you want a LOUD...

I'll be dead serious for a moment and tell you that Gallo's is a HIDDEN GEM. The food gets an easy 10/10 for what it offers. Good sandwhiches, burgers, and the best crispiest fries. They also make their drinks perfectly, and have a very healthy selection of draft beers. In...

Off to a great start! But where is everybody?

Encore seems decent enough I guess, but there weren't that many people there. The booze was cheap, and the music was okay, the ambiance was decent... But the party wasn't really loud that night. Worth a shot again maybe?
