About Wolf's Ridge Brewing
Wolf's Ridge Brewing is a family owned and operated craft brewery and restaurant, created as a result of our long and deepening love for both craft beer and food. Wolf's Ridge Brewing was born through the deep desire of the owners to create a gathering space for other craft beer and food lovers in the downtown Columbus community. Our goal is to build a microbrewery and restaurant that becomes a proud member of the community, where we provide our patrons with a wonderful dining and drinking experience.
The concept is centered on the idea that by focusing on craft and locally sourced products as much as possible, we are staying true to our primary goal of supporting and emulating the community in which we reside.

Wolf's Ridge Brewing Ratings and Reviews

Unassuming locatio,probably have driven by this side dozens of times without realizing it was there. Very energetic to the point of not being able to have a conversation with table mate. Most of the food is gluten free...very tasty and surprising.
Not a fan of their beer selection...too many IPAs.
Very trendy a d worth a visit.

Went for dinner and drinks with friends. Loved the Chicken breast (with saffron-corn risotto, black bean puree, corn shoots, roasted peppers, chimichurri, paprika vinaigrette) and the strawberries and rhubarb dessert. The grilled endive salad was great with the apricot jam but I needed either more jam or more apples, or some kind of cheese to balance out the bitterness of the endive and radicchio. The grilled sourdough, with smoked butter, and Hawaiian black lava salt was also delicious but be warned, although a large slice, it's only one.

Nice atmosphere and the presentation of the food looked like what you see on tv, but the portions were small for the high price. I had two different beers and they were both delicious. My wife had two Strawberry Fields and loved them as well. Overall it was a cool thing to do, but if we go again, we will do the Taproom.

I continue to visit Wolf's Ridge because of the outstanding staff. The team here goes above and beyond when it comes to accommodating guests' needs. My husband and I both have an array of food allergies. This can make juggling specific food requests difficult but not at Wolf's Ridge; they are always super helpful, diligent, and above all - super friendly. I always leave feeling so taken care of. They have something special going on here...go for the food, leave with a deep appreciate for the people who make this Columbus restaurant such an approachable place to eat.

Don't get me wrong--the food was great. The menu was a miss. I have eaten out a lot at restaurants at every level all over the world. I couldn't find one menu listing where I understood everything included in the dish. Not even close. This is a brewery and they serve really expensive, high-end cuisine that completely confused 75% of the diners as I watched them scratch their heads as their dishes arrived. The crowd looked like it was largely convention goers or groups brought there by organizations (sales meetings?). It was clear that the diners did not choose the restaurant and, if they return to our city again, will not return to Wolf's Ridge.
The disconnect between the beer hall motif and the high end menu (spinach espuma and parsnip puree with what I think was cod for $36) will be tough to justify for future dining.
HOWEVER, the Tasting Room menu (in the rear) looked amazing! We want to go back and only go there. To compare the crowds: Tasting Room=locals while Front Room=disappointed out of towners.

We went to Wolf's Ridge Brewery expecting to sample their local craft brews. We ended up experiencing some of the finest cuisine in central Ohio. We enjoyed each of the beer selections in the flight we ordered prior to our meal. My favorite was their Howling Moon imperial IPA. Our cheese plate appetizer was exceptional; fabulous presentation and delicious cheeses. The orange sorbet that was included as a palate cleanser would stand on its own on the dessert menu of any restaurant in C-bus. My wife had the scallops for her entree which we shared with my order of the corn risotto. Again beautiful presentation of both dishes. I'm usually dubious of the seafood offered in our land-locked states, but these scallops were some of the best I've eaten anywhere. The risotto was just as tasty and was well complimented by the sides of chorizo and black beans. We topped off our meal with their dessert "coffee" special which included superb espresso ice cream and whipped cream in another artistic and eye-catching plate. To be sure, this was an unexpected and atypical splurge for us. But it was worth every penny, and we'll happily return in a heartbeat!

The food was wildly overpriced compared to other restaurants in town. I had scallops that were decent but not as good as most other restaurants in town. Had chocolate mousse that was hard as a rock. Beer is average.

I had heard great things about Wolf's Ridge Brewing and brought an out of town guest for brunch. We were not disappointed. The service and food were excellent. I loved the atmosphere, decor, and communal style seating. The room has naturally good acoustics and it was a little loud at times. But that would not deter me from going again. I liked that parking was ample and nearby. A Columbus gem in my opinion.

Overpriced. Food was ok , definitely a problem with seasoning and no salt on the table. Not worth price. Our waitress was awesome but there was a guy walking around, working, very creepy. We were eating dessert, almost finished, and creepy guy took our plate right from under us. I was shocked. Did not ask.. Just literally grabbed it! While experience left little to be desired.

Service was super slow. Food is awful and very overpriced. Cocktails are not good. Kids' items were not good (and it's difficult to mess up simple kid's menu items). Since it's a brewery, it might be a good place to have a few beers. But I would never come here for the food. Overall disappointing experience.

Haven't been here since it opened a couple years back.
Came here for father's day and it all turned out great. Yeah a little pricey but the food looked amazing and tasted great. Nice selection of beers, mixed drinks and wine list that should have something to appeal to everyone.
Nice building that combines a modern and rustic feel.
Good wait staff that paid attention to us.
Noise level is a little higher than I expected ( couple times I had a little bit of a hard time hearing) even though the place was maybe 2/3 full... but.. overall no major issues.

We were very pleased with our brunch. The ambiance gave a fancy "special occasion" feel, and the food was beautifully plated. It was delicious and affordable, and we loved it. Thanks for helping us celebrate Father's Day!
Too expensive for poor quality of food
The food was far too expensive for the quality. For two meals, drinks, and a tip, it was around $110. If you're planning on spending this kind of money, I would recommend visiting another restaurant with better quality food.
we are fairly new to Columbus and this is one of our favorite places to eat. The beer is great and so is the food. Very high quality. Every time we have been there the service has been very good. It is not an everyday restaurant since the price are a little steep. We ordered the bread and butter and it was one piece of sourdough toasted with salt and butter. It was very good but very overpriced. The entrees were outstanding and went from mid $20's to $40. Great place for a special occasion.

We were group of 11 for lunch, the server was great but the food took too long. Most of us ordered kfc sandwich and we were told the restaurant only had one fryer. I would expect the food to come out faster specially on lunch since people would need to get back to work.
Great Beer Paired with Equally Great Food
One of the best craft brew gastropubs in town. The beer is top-notch, but so is the food, making the place somewhat unusual among craft breweries. I'm not wild about the long communal tables, and the somewhat spare interior design makes the place kind of loud when full, but otherwise a great place for dinner or brunch -- even if you're not a huge beer fan.
I decided to check out Wolf's Ridge on the recommendation of a friend. Wow. Was he RIGHT!
The food was across the board wonderful. I got the Duck Breast and was in heaven. Super simple, but still flavorful. The meat was as tender as could be, cooked just right. Yet, as much as I loved the duck, my brother got the lamb chops and gave me a bite. As happy as I was with my meal, I was slightly kicking myself after tasting the lamb. I think this is the meal to go for when dining here the first time. Amazing. His wife got the special of the night...a BBQ Ribs dish that was a close second to the lamb.
Overall, everything was fabulous. The beer was great (personally, I love the Driftwood Session IPA...hoppy and FULL of citrus) The food was out of this world and the ambiance is very simple and chic. My only complaint is that the prices will keep this from becoming a regular dining spot, but I understand that you sometimes have to pay for meals THIS good. Will be returning soon.
Cute place, high prices
A charming location, friendly staff. Really unique food worth trying at least once. Really good cocktails. One the downside, the food portions were rather small for the price. Either they need to give you larger portions, or reduce the prices, because those two things dont match currently. Overall the food was interesting and different. Not a place I would put on my regular list. But worth a try.
