A word from 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 really hits a number of notes very well. The food is delicious, the service is friendly and fast, the atmosphere is sociable, but not loud, the decor is nice, and the beers are great. For the quality of food you get, the prices are good. All in all, it was excellent and I look forward to going back.

  • Great food, noisier than ever
    OpenTable Diner Since 2005VIP
    Dined on 9/16/2014
    We brought an out of town guest on a Tuesday night. The food was really good, I had the sole which was perfect (although it will be leaving the menu in a few weeks when the fall menu arrives.) Not being beer drinkers, the wines are kind of interesting but good. The ONLY complaint is the noise. Communal tables are ok, but a large group behind us was so loud we couldn't carry on a conversation. They did seem to have been drinking a lot. So it made the vibe more Hofbrauhous than vibrant NYC restaurant. But again, my sole was 'perfect' and the habanero cheesecake was amazing.

    Brunch was nice. Food came to the table too fast. (3 minutes after drinks were served) French toast was very good, but was luke warm, then after ice cream was added on top, it was cold. It was obvious the french toast was not made to order. Beermosa was excellent!

    Wolfs Ridge makes a strong case for a destination brunch. The menu is somewhat eclectic and the execution is outstanding. Everyone in your party can find something to suit them from the adventurous to the more staid. Brunch options range from eggs and toast to duck confit. The kitchen keeps things moving nicely, which is good for early day dining but there is no rushing either.

    My wife and I had heard great things about this place and we were not disappointed with the quality of the food nor the service. The place was packed and using Open Table assured us of getting in. No valet, but with several lots in the area parking was cheap at only $3.00. The muscles were great as was the glazed salmon special. We shared the special and the chef split it on to two plates so the presentation was great. Nice touch. BUT.... The restaurant was WAY to loud. It is a big room with lots of people. We won't be back since we had to almost yell to be heard while sitting across the table from each other. We spoke with others leaving at the same time (outside, once we could hear) and shared a similar thought.

    The menu is nicely varied but slightly limited but the place is so damn noisy that it diminishes the quality of the food. Great for a bar with excellent food but lousy for a restaurant trying to sell any kind of overall experience. Some of the hard surfaces could be treated to make it more tolerable.

    First the positives: we were seated at the time of our reservation, the waitress was very attentive, and some of the food was tasty. The negatives: some of the food was bland (sole, radish appetizer) and very salty (potatoes). Surprisingly, the variety of beer available was limited (only one dark beer). Also, the restaurant was very loud and crowded. The bar area is small and guests who were waiting for their table were actually pushing into the backs of our chairs. Bottom line: not returning

    My husband and I enjoyed an overnight get away to end the summer in Columbus. We choose Wolf's Ridge out of the overwhelming amount of places to have supper. The menu was different from most and was off the beaten path. We arrived a little early for our reservation but was seated quickly, the restaurant was busy, was a little loud, so if you want romantic, quiet this is not the place. The wait staff was at our table promptly. Drinks ordered and time to let us look over the menu, she told us of the specials. We had the cheese plate for a starter, which was wonderful. My hubsand had the steak and he said it was the best he has ever had, tender and prepped just right. I had the duck breast, also perfect. The chocolate cake was a perfect end!

    We were disappointed. It was just ok for us. The atmosphere is very blah and lacks character. I just couldn't figure out the vibe they were going for. The food was ok. Just nothing to write home about or that made me want to return. We sat by the window and the view was very industrial with nothing to look at. Not the experience I was looking for at that price

    The food at Wolf's Ridge is quite delicious. I also like the space but its NOISY. They could seriously use some canvas art work on the wall or some egg crate under their chairs/tables to absorb some of the sound bouncing of all their shiny and polished surfaces. It really is hard to have a conversation when they are busy. Sound aside, highly recommended.

    The service was quick, knowledgeable, and friendly. The food was absolutely the delicious. By far the best duck I have ever had. But lets talk about the beer. There are other brew pubs in Columbus, but this is one of the best. The selection is impressive, and of the ten different beers we sampled not a single one was disappointing. Look out Elevator, these guys know what they are doing.

    This is the best restaurant that I have been to in Columbus. The food (I had Jambalaya, my boyfriend had duck), was top notch, and interesting without being too over the top. We also did a beer flight, and the Wolf's Ridge beer was fantastic. Service was also impeccable -- we had a great waitress who provided just the right amount of service and humor when she checked in on us. This is a very cool spot -- its was great for a couple, but would also be a great place for a large group.

    don't be fooled....this is not your father's brew bup. While the menu is somewhat limited, the food quality is outstanding with an ecclectic mix of "expected" pub faves (e.g. burger), mixed with surprisingly upscale dishes like scallop crudo, pigs' cheeks, and several seafood options. We were impressed enough to guarantee a return visit, with friends who appreciate great beer AND great food.

    Went with a coworker to Wolf's Ridge for lunch on a Tuesday afternoon. It was not very busy and we were served promptly. They have a large selection of draft beers. We both choose to get a flight of 5 beer samples, which gave an opportunity to try some of their different offerings. I really liked the Beta beer and my coworker liked the Alpha the best. The sandwiches were also very good - I had the Po' Boy and he had the Bahn mi, which is a braised pork sandwich. The garlic fries were crispy and not too garlicky. Will definitely come back again.

    For most of our group, this was our first time at Wolf's Ridge for dinner - we all really liked our food and everything was prepared and presented well. We liked the long, family-style tables and the casual atmosphere, but the noise level is a little high for trying to communicate among a bigger group. Overall, though very good. One person in the group had the duck and found it to be prepared just right - and the desserts were really delicious!

    I found the host to be rude which is not a good first impression when entering a restaurant for the first time. Then my brother explained the situation to me. I had gone to change my reservation from 2 to 4 people. I Made a mistake and it didn't take on open table. Anyway he was upset because it was a busy night and they maybe didn't have room for us? It worked out! Food was excellent!

    Outstanding! This restaurant sets a very high bar for a combination craft brewery/ restaurant. The menu is concise yet innovative, with no section neglected. I love the opportunity to order flights of their beer, every one of which has so far proven delicious. While the restaurant is not inexpensive, I consistently have come away feeling that excellent value was delivered relative to our tab. My one suggestion would be that the owners soften the interior just a bit. Wood tables, unpadded wood chairs, and wood floors allow the noise level to occasionally rise to levels where conversation becomes an effort.

    This place was fantastic. I was surprised as it wasn't too crowded last night (Rib Fest perhaps) so one of the complaints I had heard about (it being very loud inside) wasn't too an issue for us but I could see how it would be if it were more crowded. The food was spot-on excellent, prices weren't outrageous and the beers were very good - it'll definitely hit the rotation moving forward for *adult nights* in our house or when I need to entertain work folks coming to town as it seems to have a great vibe and the large communal tables down the middle would be great for a work function. We'll certainly be back to try other things on the menu.

    The lobster bisque tasted like BBQ sauce with ketchup. Very disappointed that I paid $10 for a soup that didn't even have chunks of lobster meat in it. Not sure how they constituted the caprese as a caprese, very far from it and they went overboard with the smokiness. Overall, it just seemed like they tried way too hard to be trendy in the gastropub scene to the point that their food was all over the taste. I could go on about the meal my boyfriend had, but I am running out of characters.

    My husband & I dined at Wolf's Ridge for an early dinner. We really enjoyed the scene: community tables, minimalist décor, casual atmosphere. I had a Belgian Wit & my husband had a Belgian Tripple & Pale Ale. We ordered several small plates to share. The melon salad was a fresh start. Next, the scallop crudo was super fresh. The texture of the scallop was soft and it tasted like the sea with a slightly spicy pepper & pea shoots on top. We also tried the pig cheeks - probably our favorite. The flavor of the pig cheeks is like the best dark meat you have ever tasted (think the oyster of a turkey). Next, sweet breads w/ peach BBQ sauce, amazing! We finished off our meal w/ chocolate layer cake which was decadent to say the least.

    Wolf's Ridge Brewing is a great neighborhood gem that will hopefully be growing in size and popularity! They make great beer and great gourmet food. They also use different meats then what you typically find on everyday menus like venison, etc... I have been there twice for brunch and it is delicious with favorites staying on the menu and new things being added every season.

    Has been a favorite and frequent often and was with 5 first timers. The menu was very limited since it was getting switched out and even though I had made a reservation well in advance we were seated at a long banquet table that it made it difficult for the folks on opposite ends to converse. When seated we were told "hopefully, it won't get too busy and we will have to seat others at the other end of the table." Thankfully this did not happen or there would have been one very unhappy customer. The lamb and desserts were the favorites and were excellent.
