Food and services are great. They have best calamari appetizer in the world. Lots of beers to choose from. And the surf turf Cooke on hot stone is ultra experiences.

From the outside the brewery looked unique and fun but it failed to deliver. The food was fair and the beer list looked good, but we caught them on a night where my first two draft choices were out. Also no Happy Hour deals despite sitting in the bar area versus the restaurant.

This was my second time here & it was just as awesome as I remembered. My bf drank one of their brews and said it was amazing. I had a bloody mary, as I'm on a quest to find the best one in the city. It excellent, especially when they're extra spicy. We also ate while we were there. Had... More

They make quite a nice variety of brews, not all over the top hoppy IPAs like alot of places these days. Pricey dinners, but worth the cost. A really nice dining experience downtown... easy parking also.

I went to this place on the recommendation of the Hotel desk person at the double tree downtown and was not disappointed, it's a very Art Deco sort of place and all original. I had a big lunch that day so I got two appetizers for dinner with a glass of their house IPA. I had the Sauer Kraut balls... More

Great food in a old building with some history! Ask the bartender and get the story for yourself!! We had the Bott Bacon Burger and fries ... it was perfection! Hubby tried the Dark Horse beer and was pleased.

So good went back for the calamari! Historical building with character, with a couple of modern twists. Great food! Had a large party the first night and they did separate checks no problem. The service was friendly and fast. Will come back.

OK, first off, full disclosure. I used to live in Columbus, and had been to the Elevator (along with their competitors) a few times before. Probably at least a couple years ago in Elevator's case. But since then, I've moved up to northwestern Michigan where, it seems, you now can't swing a cat and not hit a decent brew pub.... More

Elevator Brewing Company is located downtown in an old cigar shop, and it highlights a fun twist on a brewery menu as well as boasting a beautiful interior. Menu covers all the stapes- the majority of our table ordered the filet & surf and turf. Hint: both of these are served on a hot grilling stone for you to grill... More

Good food but a bit pricey for being a pub. A good choice for when you don't want too walk far in the rain from the Marriott Courtyard, otherwise, head down to the Arena District for a better selection of restaurants and prices.
