Great place for drinks and snacks!

Was in Cleveland for work and stopped by the Great Lakes Brewery for afternoon drinks with coworkers. We sampled several of their local brews and they were all very good. We ordered the pretzel that comes with stilton cheddar soup as a dip and it was the best ever. We also ordered the muscles... read more

We didn't eat we did the brewery tour. It didn't take a long time but our guide was fun and informative and the beer we tasted was wonderful! The bar and restaurant seemed like a fun place to spend some time but we didn't have it that day. Eating here is on our list of things to do next time.

Everyone raved about this place so we went here for lunch. I guess if you are a beer expert you may have a better experience. We all had beer but nothing stood out as exceptional to any of us. Our waitress, nancy, was nice and friendly even though she was real busy. Sausage platter/sampler was the best thing anyone got... More

If you want to taste good beer, go to where it's made. We did. We ordered a flight of all 11 drafts they had. It was good. No, it was rwally good. On top of that, the pub food was really, really good too! Probably because all the fixins' came from the West Side Market (another place you HAVE to... More

The Great Lakes Brewery has so much history that it is difficult to separate the food, the beer and the old times!!!! The Brewery adjacent to the West Side Market make a complete "outing" for us when we go to shop and dine. The local brews add to the ambiance, but even without the novelty, it would be wonderful.

Love the Conway brothers and love their passion for their unique, handcrafted beer. I respect their intentional choices to help the environment and the earth. You will have a wonderful time at this restaurant and taste some of the finest brews on the planet!

We visited on our last night in Cleveland and were very pleased! We were seated promptly and service was pretty good. At one point our waitress failed to return for a short time, but nothing worth complaining about. I had one of the burgers and it was delicious! The beer was mostly stronger varieties (mostly IPA's) but there were a... More

We were here on a busy Saturday afternoon and had to wait about 1:30 minutes for a table, but it was not a problem as we had a bigger group and there was ample room outside to sit and enjoy the afternoon. When we did get seated the service was efficient and the wait time for food was very good.... More

We really like their beer so it was really fun going here. It was busy but we got in pretty fast. It's a fun atmosphere with lots of rooms and a pub downstairs. The food was good along with the service
