Service...a novel concept,food and drinks O.K..
03/19... a night that will live in infamy! the consistantly lousy service that permiates this place! I/we (wife and many friends) have been to this place many times-5+ and no where else to go at the time, desperate for food,etc.Every time there is something wrong--waiters not waiting,servers not serving. supposedly ordering broccoli on a pizza"it's not on the menu"(it is)--with the service.The food and drinks are O.K. and the Live lizard is cool.The service is sooo bad we had to have a friend get us our refills and no one said a word.Maybe that should be the way you get drinks and good service here in the future?
A great discovery!.
I visited the location off of 23 in the CrossRoads. I have heard about this place for years but had never been...I really enjoyed this place. Menu was pretty extensive. Beer list was more then impressive. Service was quick and friendly. They did mess up my friends order, but did correct it. I liked the relaxed, sports like atmosphere, but of course, was most impressed by the beer list. A wonderful find, and I amsorry I waited so long to try...If you like beer above and beyond Coors or Budweiser, stop in here for sure!!!
Average Place to drink SUDS.
Winking Lizard is an average place to eat and drink some brews with friends. I am happy with how many brews they have as your choice of beer is forever. I am suprised they have no BIG screens for the gamedays especially since that college team plays on saturdays.
I visited again the other day with a friend from out of town and the service was HORRIBLE. The management definitely need more staff or better staff. Simply some of the worst service I have ever had!
I would have to call myself an expert in martini tastings. I have toured not only all of Columbus but that of NY, CT, NJ, CA, NC and countless other areas! Winking Lizard, by far, has the BEST martinis around. The generous sized glasses are super-chilled with ice crystals topping the liquor. I would cap it at a 2 drink limit...if you are looking to drive home legally maybe one. Winking Lizard Tavern is well worth the drive time for excellent drinks, service, & atmosphere, not forgetting the reasonable pricing. A+
The beer selection here beats just about anybody in the Columbus area. There are well over 100 beers available in bottles, and around 16 on draught. The bottles beers run the gamut from Stone, North Coast, GLBC, Ayinger, Victory, Bell's etc etc. There are a couple of gems on draught too such as Arrogant Bastard and GLBC Moondog. What's more, they have a monthly featured beer that comes with a glass ($1 additional, it's not really free). The food here is above average pub fare. The wings are better than BW3 (about the same as Quaker Steak & Lube).
