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

This is our fourth visit to the WRB brunch, and I love it more and more. If you aren't shy about drinking before noon, try the stout with a shot of One Line espresso. I had the ham steak with johnny cakes and eggs, and it was awesome- I could barely make it through it. My wife is celiac, and never has a problem eating there; she had the steak and eggs this visit and it was fantastic. Overall, recommended unconditionally.

What a great place for a variety of reasons! We started with a flight of their craft brews in the taproom. Loved the Daybreak and Hefewitzen! Next, Alex toured us through the interesting brewery and shared a bit of the brewhouse history and beer making process. Lastly, we indulged in a fabulous meal in the dining room. All of our meals looked artistic and were absolutely delicious! I can't say enough about how fantastic the whole experience was!

Sunday Brunch - outstanding food, great service. Creative menu! It became a bit loud by 10:30 or so, but unless someone is sensitive to noise, probably not an issue. Staff was top-notch! Our server did a great job ! Planning on a return visit for dinner! - 5 stars for OPEN TABLE for reservations - easy to use and bullet-proof!!

Wolf's Ridge is a unique place. The food is rustic and creative, but, sometimes misses the mark. Some dishes are wonderful, others are questionably prepared. I have had very delicious dishes such as the Lamb Rack and the Beets; some terrible dishes such as the Fried Octopus (tough rubbery texture); some 'mixed' dishes such as the Peaches and Cream dessert (the burnt-walnut bourbon ice-cream is rather awful, but the chantilly, brittle and peach sorbet is very good). When the restaurant is full the room is noisy with high traffic moving up and down the main isles created by the community tables serving up ample shoulder bumps and near misses from staff seating guests and shuttling food to tables. I feel the best atmosphere at Wolf's Ridge is when the room is only partly full. The majority of the staff is friendly and focused on service.

Enjoyed the evening at Wolfs Ridge, very good brews and fine dining. A couple will spend $90+ easily somewhat loud atmosphere which detracts a little from overall experience. Will try the tap room in back on next visit.

Researched all that offers Burger Week - chose Wolf Ridge - got there - burger not offered in dining room - only in the 'tap room'. Never listed as such in 614eats or at the entrance - disappointing. Food was average but heart not into the experience. Very poor job by Wolf's Ridge - won;t be back

This was our second time dining at WRB and it didn't disappoint! The food has been fantastic both times, the beers are very good and the staff are super nice. It does get loud at peak times and the tables are somewhat close together so if your looking for an intimate dinner date...this may not be the right place. I will definitely be back here the next time I visit Columbus!

Wolfs Ridge is a restaurant and brewery. What makes them unique is that their chef and brewmaster are both fantastic. They have the best beers in Columbus paired up with some of the best and unique food in town. Reservations are recommended if you visit in the evening. The service goes along with the rest also being excellent. My experience at Wolfs Ridge has always been outstanding and I highly recommend you visit. .

I read the menu online and it sounded great; went that night and found out that the front of business is a higher end establishment but carries the same name as the business in the back. I wanted a good burger which the front of the house did not offer (many of their dishes were in the 20-30/range). We walked to the back and enjoyed the food/drinks. It had two large tv's both with OSU on them which I do get tired of but, oh well, I live in Columbus so I'm used to it. The bill was $65 for two sandwiches and two drinks including tip and yes, we stared at those tv's. If I were to go again, and I will, it will not be on game day.

I'm glad that WR is now on Open Table as it is one of our favorite spots. The food makes the place worth the trip downtown and the parking tab. Not a beer drinker personally but the other diners always appreciate the selections and the craft brews.
For me it's all about the food, which comes in unique and creative presentations that always surprise and satisfy. The service can be indifferent in the dining room but at least everyone is pleasant and helpful.

We started going to WOlf's Ridge when it first opened, it was one of our favorites. The recent visit disappointed us somewhat. The food was great as usual. But the service left much to be desired. Our server seemed as if he really did not want to be bothered. When I asked a question about one of the wines he gave an answer that was obviously fabricated. At this price point we expect better. Still love the general ambiance and the food, though.

I discovered this place after having their Direwolf brew at The Daily Growler. I thought it would be a great after-work place to bring some friends. I was not disappointed at all! The service was great, and the food/drinks were amazing! I will definitely be coming back before my work in Columbus is finished.

I had the Steak Tartar and the Scallops. the Steak Tartar was great. The Scallops was one of the best put together and prepared dishes I have ever had. the Scallops were tall and perfectly cooked. the caviar gave it a nice saltiness and texture balance. The sweat peas, sweat pea puree and sweat pea sponge cake were a great balance of textures. It may have been the best food I have had in Columbus.

Really great food and drinks. Could not have been happier with my dinner or with the beers. I had 4 different craft brews all very good and of different types. Additionally I had the corn chowder which was wonderful, and the orange chicken. This place is worth every penny!

We've always loved Wolf's Ridge for brunch with the girls! They were especially accommodating of our larger group, and served us in a timely manner as and when people showed up. They were also exceptional in offering vegetarian options and changing orders to suit our needs. We'll definitely be going back soon!

The first time we came, it was absolutely amazing! So, naturally we wanted to come back. The second time around- the drink, service, and appetizer was spot on! We came for brunch btw. She, my girlfriend had The Toad in the hole...again! It was amazing! I bought the Pork Belly. I usually get anything relatively exotic compared to everything else I review. I've been in the business for 26 years and now have my own food truck, and personal chef company here in Columbus. The Pork Belly looked amazing...enough so that I did take a pic to share. The crackling of the Pork was good, the egg was separated (yolk from white for presentation), but the white was rubbery. I didn't eat much more, and I thought that the Arugula Coulis was pretty, but wasn't up to par with the flavor profile for me. Just thought you'd like to know. For me, the dish was less than fair- but hey! Can't wait to come back, bring friends, and try something different. :)

This is the second time and probably last time i tried to celebrate my birthday in this restaurant.
First time they won't sit, eventhough we had a reservation just because we have an additional person. Seriously!
I thought i should try for second time
Although, I like the food and beer.
The air condition was not working.
It was pretty hot inside.
My reservation was for 7:15pm but we were seated almost 7:45pm!

A group of 10 of us decided to try this place out of dinner. It started not so good when you walk in and it feels as hot and sticky inside as it does outside. Then, it took 25 minutes to get drinks from unfriendly staff. We ended up leaving after a drink and walking down the street to get dinner. Won't be back.

Wolf Ridge's strongest feature, the brewing, did not disappoint. I got the Gold Standard, and it was great. Absolutely wonderful.
We ordered the steak tartare as an appetizer and the porkchops with mashed potatoes, vidalia onions, and cherry balsamic. The steak tartare was not very good, although to be fair, I haven't had it anywhere before. I expected it to be comparable to carpaccio, but it was warm and not very flavorful, which is the exact opposite. The horseradish espuma that came with it was pleasant, but the rest of the plate was a miss. Olive oil powder added nothing to the dish.
The lamb chop, on the other hand, was outstanding. Seasoned and cooked to perfection, tender and meaty. The potatoes and onions were hearty and the cherries and balsamic brought a bright balance to the dish. Would definitely recommend.
The food was delicious, but the portions ...
The food was delicious, but the portions were SO small! There are 30 other high end restaurants in Columbus that have the same quality food, but give you enough food so you don't have to go out for second dinner! Also, I think the AC was malfunctioning. It was uncomfortably hot.
This was my second time dining at Wolf's ...
This was my second time dining at Wolf's Ridge and it was a complete disappointment. I had brunch here several months ago and the brunch was absolutely delicious. For this reason, I planned my monthly dinner club here. My friends and I have been getting together every month for the past four years to check out new restaurants. I always try to check out the restaurant beforehand to help eliminate sub-par dining spots for the group. After having brunch at WR, I knew I had a winner or so I thought. I ordered the Bread and Butter to share at the table. I noticed that when I sliced the first piece off it looked charred and was black around the edges. When I took a bit, yikes, was it burned. By the time it made it back around the table to me I sliced off another non-burned piece and tasted it. Although the slice had not dark edges it tasted like smoke. All my friends said their slice tasted the same way. I'm not talking a good slightly smoky flavor - just straight up burned. Next our dinners came out. Three of us ordered the chicken breast, two got the pork tenderloin and two got the grouper. My chicken tasted like it had been baked in the oven for three hours straight. It was so tough and chewy. The chimchurri had so much vinegar on it, it killed the flavor. My two friends said they exact same thing about their plates. The pork tenderloin was cooked well but my friends joked that they couldn't believe they were paying $27 for two whole ounces of tenderloin. My friends said the grouper was good but were still hungry after because there was barely anything else on the plate. For $36 that is ridiculous. I would gladly pay that much money for a fish dish at a place like Tucci's in Dublin because their food is amazing and you actually get more than a tidbit on your plate. I won't be dining at Wolf's Ridge after that experience. Not one of my six friends had anything good to say about their meals and we're not picky people.
