An interesting menu mixing schnitzel and paprikas w burgs. Had a hard time deciding. Had this wicked country fried steak burg w fennel rosemary gravy, fried egg and arugula. Yes, it was a calorie bomb and so worth it. Introduced my daughter to schnitzel. Also very good. I'd go back. Didn't drink beer but the selection was great and they... More

If you call yourself a "beer engine" you better be firing on all cylinders. These folks have assembled a very sophisticated list of top notch brews from around the world. If you can't find something you like here you should probably head to the nearest Speedway and grab an 18 pack of bud light. The burgers are also very respectable.... More

Perhaps the best craft beer location in the Cleveland area. A large selection of craft beers... some of theirs, many of other's, from local and elsewhere. The place is not trying to be something... it just is. Incredible food menu. Even non-beer types can come here for the food. Cool spot, outdoor on-the-street patio. A must stop when in Cleveland....

Buckeye Beer Engine is a great place to have a good burger with a laid back atmosphere and a great variety of local beers. They have great brunch too!

The food is great, ample portions. The staff is friendly, competent, not too attentive, but the right mix.

Burgers are tasty, fries taste like they are from Steak&Shake.. Service is fast, servers aren't super friendly.. Overall, it's pretty decent!

One of our favorite places in Lakewood. The staff is always so friendly and accommodating and the food never disappoints. We typically order their burgers which are the best . Thank you for putting the harissa burger on the menu you will not find anything like it it is so delicious!

The beer is great, but the food is really good! Homemade schnitzel dinner with applesauce is out of this world. It's the one place that all of my adult kids can agree on.

Best place ever, if you are into craft beer and delicious burgers. And we are. Our server was helpful and friendly. Outside tables, if you are brave enough to dare the humidity and cigarette smoke. Busy place, open late hours according to their menu.
