We met here before a concert in St. Paul & the service was SO bad. There were multiple concerts & a show going on in St. Paul that night and this restaurant was not prepared at all. Considering they are so close to things you would think they would know what's coming. I don't think I've ever had such bad... More

My husband and I tried the beer flight and were pleased with most of the selections. The server was sweet and offered suggestions on what we may like depending on what we usually drink at home. Sadly, the food wasn’t great. Dry, over-cooked, and overpriced. We were really disappointed. Go for the beer. Skip the food.

In the city for a conference, I always seek out local food and small breweries, so this showed on the search. Easily walkable distance from the several hotels in the Skyway area or the Xcel Center (for hockey fans). Long-time Brewers Association members, Great Waters had 9 different beers on tap, including 4 that were "hand drawn & cask conditioned"... More

All of the above are excellent, especially the Duck. Get it medium rare and you will not regret it. Also, get the beer sampler. Worth every nickel.

This is a brew house, and the beer is what brings you in. The cask conditioned ales are reason enough to visit. The quality of the food is a surprise. There are the standard burgers and sandwiches, but there are some wonderful surprises, all designed to pair so well with the liquid refreshment.

Highly recommend the atmosphere. We sat at the bar next to members of their beer club and were instantly accepted as one of the group. Great conversation and recommendations from each of them. The bar staff worked their butts off to provide excellent service to the large pre-concert crowd. Food was fantastic and the brews were top notch. Will definitely... More

In all fairness we went on a concert night, but they were out of most of their beers by 530. Seems like a brewery would be better prepared. Service was slow and they forgot one of our orders. We got the wrong bill. I would go back though. I just think they were overwhelmed and understaffed.

Perfect location to take in a game or concert at the nearby Excel Energy Center. Enjoyed the beer-battered fish & chips and an ale brewed right on premise. Staff was polite and efficient. This will become my go to place when downtown for Wild games and college / high school hockey tournaments! I'll be back!

One of very few places open on a Sunday evening in downtown St. Paul. Great selection of microbrew beer and typical pub food. The chicken fingers were good but not great. Friend of mine had the nachos and it was HUGE!

Visited on a recent business trip and thought the beer outstanding with plenty to choose from. The menu is your standard for a U.S. pub at pretty good prices.
