    Best smoked dry rub wing anywhere! Big meaty, fall off the bone, delicious! Oh and their beers are world class too!
  • ClevelandNights
    Their beers are some of the best in Cleveland & cheaper than other breweries. The Not-Cho Platter with their famous smoked pork is a MUST.

    Far more typical bar than a brewery, you can still do tasters.

    Do not pass this place up if you are a beer fan and in the Cleveland area. Not only a wide variety of their own brews but a ton of guest drafts as well.

    Sure, the servers are friendly but that doesn't make up for having a fly in my beer! Completely disgusted. Also, the Buffalo chicken wrap is nasty and the burgers are covered in grease.

    The table wait of 45 minutes when a group of same size walks in & seated is outrageous ! Seating a large before everyone arrives is terrible customer service !

    Mac and cheese with brocoli is great. Also If you get the mustard don't use too much, I think I almost passed out.
