I must say that you need to have time to eat here. Had some of the slowest service I have ever had. I had to ask for my empty glass to be refilled several times, I finally went to the bar to get my own. Never felt like anyone wanted the business while I was there. The food took over... More

This restaurant is located at West Side Market Square, and has wonderful outdoor seating areas along the street and in a courtyard between two buildings. The street is shaded with leafy trees and is not heavily trafficked, as it is a small quiet side street. When I showed up, they gave me 45 minutes to wait, and I gave them... More

Husband and I stopped for a beer on a Saturday afternoon bike ride. The bar was busy but we managed to find a seat. It took a few mins. To get someone's attention, when he finally came over, no smile, and the "what can I getcha". We both asked to taste a beer and literally received no eye contact. He... More

A night out with friends and the choice was Great Lakes Brewing Company, located across the street from the historic West Side Market. We enjoyed all aspects of our visit, food, beer and atmosphere. I am always looking for a place to get a good burger and I found it here. I ordered the pretzel bun burger with bacon, french... More

This brewery was a real find in Downtown. If you love draught beer this is the place to come as they brew here on site. We also found the food great and in expensive.i would definitely head back here next time I am in town!

In short, I had the best time here. Bartender on the upper floor was cool enough to let us crash a private function and sit at her bar when downstairs was crowded. Beers were excellent and our ordered bar snacks hit the mark. I can see why this place is talked-up: it delivered. My tip? Go.

We intended to eat our second lunch at The West Side Market, but wandered around the adjoining streets first. We happened upon this beer garden. It has a large, shaded patio and--since the weather was cooperative--we thought that having a quiet meal was more appealing than elbowing around the market (which is fun, but we'd done it already). The service... More

Fun lively atmosphere before an afternoon Indians game! The beer and camaraderie is why you stop. Really nothing special about the food and often there is a wait to be seated. The patio is great people watching in the popular neighborhood of Ohio City. The street construction is pretty noisy so a dinner visit might be best until the construction... More
