Good beer, food could be better...

I often frequent Great Lakes Brewery and we always enjoy their beer. The first few times we ate there for dinner and the food came out cold & the service could have been better. We decided to still head out for a few drinks, skipping the dinner. Our last trip to the Great Lakes Brewery was overall... read more

Great Lakes Brewery/Restaurant is a must go to place when visiting Ohio City. They buy lots of items local from The West Side Market right across the street. The hamburger on the pretzel bun is delightful. They only have their beer on draft but offer a full bar service. The basement Pub is cozy and reminds one of being in... More

Went there today for a business lunch and were able to get in very quickly, and also got served very quickly. The food was excellent (I got the Po' Man) and I was very pleased at the quality and portion of food for the price. I can imagine that it must get very very busy for dinner and weekends. Cool...

The food is good and moderately priced. The atmosphere of the 'brewpub' is family friendly, but loud. My husband and I arrived at 1:00pm on a Saturday, were seated at about 1:30 and got our food at almost 3:00 (2:50 to be exact). There were tables around us who were seated well after we were and received their food much... More

Nice meal and beer on a cold dreary day. Interesting assortment of beers brewed there. We had sandwiches, all very good. My wife had a Cobb salad, which is served warm. My wife said that made for an interestingly different taste. There is a long wait to be seated, but if it's under 1 hour, it's worth the wait.

Each time the food has been good even though the place is usually crowded.The beer cheese soup is great. I had it with the fish and chips. Service was good and the food is consistently good quality.

Unfortunately came in on a Friday night when the restaurant was done serving food. Got to try a handful of beers, several which are not available unless you go directly to the brewery. For this alone, I'd rate them 5 stars, as everything is fresh and excellent, but knocked a star because we didn't get the full experience. The style... More

Food was excellent (pretzel with stilton dip, fish and chips and the sausage dish). Service fantastic and interesting atmosphere. Make it a point to go downstairs. Its like walking into a 19th century pub!

Went with family here for a reunion, dinner and tour around Christmas. It was packed. There were a lot of us, so hard to find a seat. Their tour/reservation system can be crazy too. They limit the amount we could take on the tour (so not all the family could go) and then we had to wait to eat after... More
