It was a nice atmosphere, and I always enjoy a good brew pub. However, I would consider the beer and dinner I had as just average. The beer and food were good, but not noteworthy. Service was slow even with me sitting right in front of the bar tender. It's worth a stop for those in town looking to sample... More

Shoreline Brewery is one of my favorite restaurants anywhere. It's a casual bar atmosphere, yet the food and service are five-star! I've dined at Shoreline about a dozen times, and each time I was impressed. The food is surprisingly gourmet. Smoked salmon, crab cakes, scotch egg, burgers, pulled pork - it's all excellent. They have a nice selection of beers... More

I found this place on trip advisor. Since we are both into breweries and like to support local companies we thought we'd go. There was a wait even later into the night but we sat at the bar and tried a flight of beer they had. Pretty decent and we both found one we liked. The salad was good and... More

Shoreline Brewery was one of the very first places that I visited when considering a move to the midwest. Michigan City might be one of those places we pass by without a thought, but I am glad to have stopped by not just to finally lay eyes on the Great Lakes but also for Shoreline. I've tried all of their... More

Stopped into the Shoreline Brewery for a taste of the microbrew. Sat at the bar where service was quick and friendly. Tried the flowing beers: Benny's American IPA, Sum Nug IPA, Curse the Goat Dopplebock, and tasted several others. Overall, I was very pleased with the beers. I thought Benny's was the best. Had the calamari, which was very good... More

Actually the beer was excellent. The food however, had its drawbacks. If you're going to call something queso fundido, make sure it has some queso. What came out was an arrangement of onions and peppers on a cast iron plate with a small amount of melted cheese on top; quite a disappointment. The scotch egg was precut, so not even... More

Six of us ate lunch here, and everyone was very happy with their meal. Burgers and BBQ were great, I love the hummus platter. This is my 3rd visit, and food has always been consistently good. I'm not a beer drinker, but those that ordered beer, enjoyed their beverage. Not up in this area very often, but when I am,... More

We decided to try the Shoreline with it being a brewery. It was very busy, but you can sit and enjoy a drink while you wait. Our half hour wait time turned into 15-20 minutes which was very good. The food was excellent and my husband was given a beer sample to try before ordering a beer. That was helpful... More

It's a brewery so we were expecting burgers and brats and not much more. We walked in and nearly turned around and walk out because the noise of the "music" was way too loud and the waitresses were a bit too informal. Ours wore a tank top and shorts. But we gave it a chance and we are glad we... More
