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 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!

I personally did not like the onion rings. Being a Bostonian, I like them a certain way and these seemed like the frozen kind, not batter dipped. The waitress was accomodating... More
