7509 Sawmill Road Dublin, OH 43016

Why Go There?
101 Beer Kitchen is a one-of-a-kind establishment in Columbus and you’ll always find it packed on Friday and Saturday evenings. The ambience is awesome and will appeal to a variety of folks with the inviting decor and layout of the restaurant. The service is great and the bartenders are very knowledgeable about the 101 beers available to choose from – 20 on tap and 81 bottles. The food is made from scratch with a rustic touch – I definitely recommend the housemade tater tots as an appetizer. This is one location I recommend to anyone – both visitors and locals that haven’t tried it for themselves!
