I would highly recommend taking the tour of the Great Lakes Brewery. The tour starts in the visitors center where you are given four tokens to use for beer samples during the tour. After a brief film about the company and your first sample, your group is taken across the street to see all steps in the brewing process. A... More

I can't review the food but the beer selection was great. We went to the pub in the basement and sat at the bar. There are no windows and the bar staff wasn't the friendliest but they got the job done. I'll go back if I should find myself back in Cleveland.

If you are a microbrew fanatic or you just love Great Lakes beer, and you have never been to this restaurant, it is a must go! Plan on eating there though. The food is very fantastic! There are other bars around the neighborhood that offer other microbrews from around Cleveland. All walking distance from the Great Lakes Brewing Company.

We make Great Lakes one of our go to places with guests! Lots of seating, inside and out. The pretzel chicken is a favorite and of course a great selection of beer.

Went as a family and everyone was happy. My husband is a beer drinker and likes mostly IPAs but has found a new liking for sour beer. He went with the flight which was a bit much for one person but we walked around for a 1/2 hour afterwards in the heat which helped remedy the situation. I enjoy cocktails... More

My husband and I spent a leisurely afternoon at the Brewery. It was a beautiful day so we were able to do the sidewalk seating. We shared several appetizers and they were excellent. I'm not much of a beer drinker but my husband gave it two thumbs up!

Ate at the Brewing Company on my last trip to Cleveland. It was the weekend before the RNC so the city was alive and buzzing with activity. We sat outside and people watched. I strongly suggest the Nachos appetizer and the Mac-N-Chesse. Wonderful food, drinks, atmosphere and staff. Don't miss this wonderful Cleveland experience!

I loved the atmosphere of the outdoor seating. I visited with my wife and 3 teenage sons. The place was pretty busy and they said it could be 30 minutes for a table. They took our phone number and have a texting system to let us know when our table was ready. We only had to wait about 20 minutes... More
