My wife and I wanted to try something new on the east side for dinner one evening. We came over here last week (looks like Buckeye Beer Engine) has been open less than a month. The service was the best part of our experience.
The food was not overly great as other people have mentioned it. I am a huge fan of bbq and meat. The brisket, hog wing and cheeseburger was not up to what they made it out to be. The popcorn shrimp was too unique for the establishment, too. The shrimp were soaked in an asian sauce without indicating so on the menu - surprise!
The beer was decent. Most of the offers you can get in other areas, the rarest beer would have to be the North Coast on draught.
Service was awesome. The bartender was extremely nice as well as the wait staff. Establishment still needs to be renovated a little more, too - restrooms are in a weird spot (downstairs).

Checked this place out on a recent trip to Cleveland for the BA Blackout Stout release. Not bad, but probably wouldn't be a place I'd frequent.
Atmosphere: It wasn't awful, but kind of reminiscent of a college-type kind of bar, something that I'm just not really interested in frequenting a whole lot. A little loud and there were some folks getting pretty hammered on hard liquor next to us that insisted on spinning trays on their fingers.
Quality/Selection: Pretty nice overall with a really solid variety on tap. This would be what would keep me coming back if anything would. They've also got cask brews available as well, so for me, that's pretty interesting as there's not really a ton around me here in the greater Cincinnati area. They've also got beer to go and a pretty well-stocked cooler, so even if I didn't look to hang out here, it would likely be a place I could swing by for some decent beers to stock my fridge with.
Service: Hard to judge this especially accurately because I've only been there once, but they weren't especially busy and we seemed to be largely ignored because of the table full of people getting hammered next to us (mentioned above). I'd like to think that all tables would get some form of service though.

This place is built like an old Jack-in-the-Box converted into a brewpub. The interior is maroon with wood stained highlights. It is decorated with various bottles and tap handles, beer flags, tin advertisements, and neon signs. In the center is a half-moon tarnished wooden bar, supported by a few wooden tables, and ample patio seating. Classic rock that pre-dates all the staff plays on the overhead. The scene is completed by a few televisions, a juke box, and an ATM machine.
Behind the bar is an island that holds most of the bar’s glassware. There are a few tulips available, but it’s mostly shakers. This landmark is flanked by a couple dozen draft handles. Above the facets are televisions that give a live update of everything on draft. There are two casks and an impressive bottle list. The draft list includes Goose Island, Dogfish Head, Flying Dog, Southern Tier, Rogue, Victory, Lagunitas, and Epic. They also have six of their own “Buckeye” beers (they do no brew on-site).
I asked the friendly bartender for a local recommendation and all they had were their beers and one from Columbus Brewing. I had the Buckeye IPA and it was awful. That was kind of disappointing, but overall this is a pretty good beer bar. The certainly had enough handles to be respectable, and a decent bottle menu. I’d come again, but I’d think twice before I ordered another house beer.
