Fair priced, good quality, locally sourced food! Ask about their homemade tater tots! They change their style/seasoning every day! Their cheese soup is super rich and tasty. The sausage sampler appetizer is a great starter. The pierogies are like little potato pillows and are super fresh/tender! Top it all off with a great selection of Great Lakes beers! 3 of... More

Stopped in for lunch on a visit to Cleveland. I sat out on the patio. Great food. I had the Brats and Pierogi. The staff were friendly and professional. It was a Holiday (Labor day) so they were very busy but it was a great experience. I look forward to returning.

If you like great lakes beer this is a must stop. Beer was outstanding, a very cool layout with downstairs bar and upstairs bar. Food was all over the place, salad looked like it should be in a food magazine, awesome. Tator tots were ridiculous, a must get. The rest of the food was ok meatloaf, sandwiches typical bar food,...

We have been here multiple times now. The beer has always been solid, but the ice cream that is made with their porter is amazing. Our visit this weekend was good. The brewery was very busy, but we were seated in a reasonable amount of time. The service was great and all the food came out together and correctly. If... More

A small place to have a brew. They do have a downstairs to accommodate over crowding, but it is hardly enough. It can also use a little TLC. The beer was very good and fresh. If I had to go there again I think I'd pass, but it was an experience to say the least.

As always, both the beer and food were consistent and great tasting. Great Lakes Brewery is located in a cool old building very near the historic Westside Market. Both are a perfect reflection of the CLE vibe and welcome visitors of all ages. Combining a visit to the market with lunch or dinner at Great Lakes is the perfect way... More

The fresh beer is the first reason we enjoy the pub. Unique beers are available on tap and only here. Food is always local and fresh. Sitting at or near the bar is our favorite place to enjoy the beer, food and atmosphere.

Always have liked going to Great Lakes Brewery even though I keep most of their beer stocked at home. Service is great even on busy nights, and I like that the hostess usually overstates the wait time so we're sometimes surprised by getting called earlier. The Fish and Chips dinner is our personal favorite especially after a previous server told... More

For those who drink beer they have a good selection for those who don't not so good. The charcuterie board was very tasty - could have used a small pad of butter. The bartender could have been friendlier so FYI don't tell him you don't want pizza cause you are having it for dinner that night.
