“Simply delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2013 via mobile

We dine at the Brew Kettle regularly. The reason we keep returning is quite simple: great food, great beer & great service, all in a casual, family friendly environment! The menu is simple yet with their win unique twist to the offerings. BBQ is fantastic, but so are the burgers, Ruebens, pasta, and seafood offerings. We love trying samplers of their ever changing and wide aridity if micro brewed beer. Keep up the great work, Chris, Pam & the Brew Kettle team!

“It all depends who's working”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2013

When I first started going, the service, food, and beer were great. I don't know how or why, but suddenly it all went downhill. The hostess put us by the drafty front door, and when we asked to be moved to the back, where all the atmosphere really begins, she said it wasn't being used that night. Well then why did party after party get seated back there after us? The waitress took a long time for everything-- our drinks, food, check, everything. We got pops she didn't refill and she had to be flagged down for the checks and to take our visas paying for them. Even the chicken parm sandwich that was so great a few months ago was fatty and charred. Left a bad taste in my mouth, like we weren't valued as customers at all. Maybe it just depends who's working.

“Subpar service combined with average pub food = average experience.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2013 via mobile

This has been voted #1 in Strongsville? What a travesty as I can easily name 5 better restaurants in that city. The waitress ignored us for the first 15 minutes and then took our order for the avg food. The appetizers were by far the least tasty: buffalo chicken dip and pulled pork nachos. The triple pig sandwich was big but very average. Not in a hurry to go back anytime soon!

“Fun place for a beer”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2013

Visited some old haunts on a recent visit to Cleveland, and the Brew Kettle was among them. This is a fun little brew pub. The craft beers are good, as is the food. I'd highly recommend the wings and their salads (don't think diet here - they're large and most come with piles of meat on top - not that I'm complaining). On our recent visit, I enjoyed their new tri-tip salad, and my wife had the pulled pork salad, along with a wings appetizer. I wouldn't put their food in the gourmet category, but it's good pub food.

As I recall, they let you brew your own beer here, and one of our teams at work did that as a team building event. Don't know if they still do this or not, but it sounds genius.

“Good food, good service, good beer”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2013 via mobile

We came at 8pm on a Friday night and were seated in the patio right away. The waitress was great and very knowledgeable about the extensive beer selection and was able to recommend a good selection. She was also able to recommend the pulled pork which was very good. We will be back.
