Good place for sampler, food

Friends brought me here to try a variety of beers - got the sampler (you can order any of the 8 as a 5 oz pour; I chose 4 plus the seasonal) and we also ordered food. I enjoyed the butternut squash ravioli in brown butter, and although there were only six of 'em, they ended up being very filling.

The food is good and the beer is excellent. The only downfall is no call ahead seating, which makes it hard to get a large group of people in the restaurant. . My group supplement the wait with a brewery tour which made the wait worth it. December is a great time to enjoy two seasonal beers from Great Lakes,... More

This is a must stop if you love Craft Beers, super friendly people (especially if you're seated at the bar) and tasty appetizers, we had the sausage platter, great with our brews.. It's a warm, inviting "Cheers" kind of place that should not be missed. Lots of seating indoors and outdoors. Our kind of nourishment for "hopping" around Cleveland (a... More

Great Lakes brew pub is a wonderful old style setting bar with great beer and great people. You really dont go there for the food....but its OK. My favorite is the Burning River beer.

My daughter and I enjoyed the charcuterie board with cheese, meats, and bread. It was yummy and plenty of food for two. I was able to exchange one cheese for another of preference. Will order this again!

Great brewpub downtown Cleveland. Brewing the best beer in the city. Wholesome, earth-friendly and modern - GLBC is world-class in beer quality, variety and upcycling of products from their brewing process and into the restaurant. Menu items are purchased locally as well.

Great Lake Brewing Company is a great place to have lunch, grab a beer and watch the people walk by. Located in Ohio City, just across from the West Side Market there is always plenty to do and see!

Excellent food, good service, very rustic decor. Watch out for sides which carry an extra charge. Nice patio for outdoor dining.

Went for lunch and wound up with beer and appetizers - perfectly filling. A nice stop after being at the very busy West Side Market.

A buddy and I decided to go to the West Side Market and kill some time and pick up some market items (if you are in Cleveland, you must go). While we were there, went across the street to this place. I have had their beer before and like it very much. We went in and had several beers that... More
