Beautiful Space, Good Dinner

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).

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!

We are intrigued by the entrance on our way to the hockey game. We had just eaten a few hours earlier but went in. The bar had a variety of their own brews. We both liked the ones we selected. We did not eat but the menu looked high end and the food coming out behind us smelled great. We... More

Walked over from the Hyatt after reading the reviews - wasn't disappointed, especially with their beer selections. Had two of their IPAs - very tasty! Had the fish and chips for dinner - large portions, and very different from what I've had before... Wait staff was prompt and courteous, atmosphere was somewhat of the after work crowd. Beautiful historic building,... More
