Having imbibed at Great Lakes since they opened, I know their beer is some of the best in the world, and I love their food, too. The atmosphere is always just right, with friendly bartenders and waitstaff. BUT I'm starting to feel like they are getting too big for their britches. When you go to the actual source of the...

Visited Great Lakes Brewing Company's restaurant/pub for the first time the other night. My buddy is a beer drinker, I am not. He loves Great Lakes beers, especially Christmas Ale. I was surprised by the eclectic food menu with more variety than a typical bar. The pub tries to support local farmers and producers, which I like. The burger I... More

Imagine if you will a world without beer, or worse a world without GOOD beer. Not a problem in the Great Lakes Brewery, only the best beer made! Enjoy the food if you will, it is good, but the superstar here is truly the BEER! Can you tell I like Great Lakes Beer? O.K., I do, but its not because... More

They were great in the 90s but have decayed. The beer is ok at best, same with the scene. Go to market garden for much better beers and food.

I went here with my daughter, her two friends and another mom. We tried some of the unique food which they provide. Although this is a brewery, they also have a wonderful array of food options

I first really went there to try the beer but soon found out that their food is not your normal bar food. It was definitely kicked up a few notches. We all shared a bunch of different entrees and we all loved everyone of them. I'd recommend going there for the food and the fresh craft beer. What I liked... More

Was in the area and just stopped in for a quick bite and a beer. Wow! Had the beer cheese soup (cheddar with a touch of Stilton) and an Oktoberfest beer. I rarely order the same things when I return to a restaurant, but I'll be repeating this lunch over and over. I realize the beer may be seasonal, but... More

Great place but servers hide in kitchen instead of in restaurant to serve customers. It's an airport. We have minutes to eat.

Quite simply, a bad food experience. Went her with two friends. We ordered nachos and pork slider apps. The nachos were horrible. Velvetta-like cheese on top of stale or soggy chips then they pour on way too much ice cold salsa – resulting if cold hard ‘cheese’. I had to complain. Waitress apologized and said she would have another made... More

We arrived early for lunch (11am) and it was a good thing because by noon, there was an hour wait for tables. Our party of 8 all agreed our meals were delicious and the service was exceptional. Our server was efficient, friendly and very informative about the drafts. She engaged us in very pleasant conversation about the local area as... More
