Not so bad with great service

The drinks and food are great. The bar stools are terrible. The bar stools are wobbly and uncomfortable. Really? Great atmosphere get new stools, don't be cheap.

Excellent as always. The Rock Filet is awesome. I cannot try anything else because this is so good. Appetizers are all good. Oh and the beer. Mmmm

Visited for dinner with family and friends in January, 2015. First thing, the restaurant is beautiful. The history of the building is noted on the menu (dating back 100 or so years). The space and fixtures (especially bar back) are really nice and worth taking a few moments to look at for their detail. We arrived at 7:00 on a... More

Have been here many times and they never disappoint. It is a beautiful old building and the food and service is always very good. Love the fish and chips or the almond crusted chicken salad. Never had a bad meal.

I was traveling for business. I had dinner alone at the Elevator Brewery. The Short Rib Mac & Cheese was excellent - went well with a local beer. Professional service. Enjoyed it.

My wife and I stopped in both before and after a recent hockey game at the Nationwide Arena, which is just a couple blocks away. The atmosphere is excellent, being in a restored historic building from the late 1800s, I believe. The bar especially was very cool. They have about 10-12 beers available that they brew on site, and the... More

The restored Bott Bros. building is absolutely beautiful. Service was friendly; food and beverages were excellent. The vegan options were appreciated. Restrooms are at the base of a steep staircase and I don't know if there is alternate access for the disabled.

The building is very old and has quite the history. I have eaten here with people from work a number of times and the food is always excellent and very consistent. I usually get a sandwich, so you can't go wrong and the fries are fantastic. My co-workers often get the house salad and rave about it. It is a... More

I took my daughters here for our annual Christmas outing. My husband had recommended it. The food was good and we had a great waitress. It was a little loud, we had two tables next to us that we quite loud. I would recommend this place for a group of friends but not if you want something quiet and intimate... More

So glad we stopped in! This is a beautiful, historic building with friendly staff who enjoy sharing the details of this old "gentleman's club." The original bar is a sight to see made from mahogany with onyx pillars. The food was excellent. I loved everything about it and can't wait to visit again. Special thanks to Chris!
