Sat at the bar and was served promptly. Had a beer and a buffalo chicken wrap, both of which were good. Since it was Friday evening, the place was hopping and loud, but it didn't bother me. Seems to be a popular after work stop.

It is a busy place, but we finally were able to settle in. The service was good and the drinks were very good as well. Try the Jolly Rancher shot - so good!

We visited Winking Lizard with a party of 15 people from a sports team on Friday evening. We had to wait a while for a table (30+ minutes) but we expected that on Friday evening. Food was great! Prices are very reasonable. Party of 4 adults ate for $50 not including drinks.

I had the Haddock fish sandwich. Very nice piece of fish. Large portion and good quality. Also had the "original" WL salad (with corned beef). Always a good... More

I go here because it's fairly close to places that I frequent. Food is pretty good, but when I ask for my burger to be cooked medium well they don't cook it long enough. When I ask for it well done they burn it lol

My wife & son & I stopped here for dinner and had a wonderful time with their many brews and great tasting food offerings. When you eat on their patio, you have a wonderful view of downtown Cleveland!

Monday is half off wings. Loved the bourbon Barrel sauce. This place is always packed so expect a Wait if you have a large group.
