They have a great ""beer tour"" encouraging those involved to try all of their HUGE list of beers.\r
The lizard fingers (aka. chicken fingers) are very good, as is the chicken sandwich with honey. \r
More than anything it offers an excellent atmosphere!
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 ...view moreBudweiser, stop in here for sure!!!view less
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 forgettin...view moreg the reasonable pricing. A+view less
