One of my favorite places to always stop when iím in town. Great building, ambiance. Food is a bit average, but priced right. Great Lakes beer is always solid, and the brewpub always has something special on tap you canít find elsewhere. Can get a bit crowded, but downstairs is always a nice spot to get away from the crowd.

Nicely renovated, historic, brick building, very clean and comfortable with a quality menu. Casual yet classy. Not really standard brewpub food on the menu, but I had the bratz and perogies; excellent. A little pricy when you first examine the menu but once your feast is placed in front of you youíll see why. High quality and large portions...GO HUNGRY! The others in my party all raved about their food. You walk into the bar and the restaraunt is on either side, one side has a cozy pub feel the other, kind of metro, including GL logo waterfall and wood burning fireplace and a gift shop stock full of bottles of you favorite brews, cold and ready to carry out except for the seasonal Christmas Ale I came seeking which the manger explained to me some Rate Beer guy from Arizona cleaned him out just before Christmas. Wait staff were friendly and never left you wanting. The manager Chris was extremely accommodating and gracious making me feel like the most important person there. As I was contemplating a way to grab a couple extra coasters Chris walks up with a envelope containing a complete set and a quality colored and detailed stat sheet of all the GL brews and made for some good conversation. Then half way through appetizers and my Rubicon Chris busts out a surprise complimentary sampler! Wow! Eight 5 ounce glasses. If you are ever NEAR Cleveland you MUST stop here!

My favorite place to go when the wife is driving! My favorite beers, great food (a bit overpriced), excellent service. The ambiance is terrific, as you can almost feel the history in the building. A must visit spot if you are from out of town. Donít miss the world famous West Side Market which is just across the street!

Visited late on a Thursday night for some beers. The place was located in a trendy little part of town, and the place itself was the same. Decent crowd there, and the bartender and manager on duty could not have been cooler to us. They had closed down the gift shop for the night before we got there, but they opened it up for us when we asked about buying beer to go. The manager even gave us a few free things after talking to him for a bit. The beers were all really good, as I had never had their IPA and the Edmund Fitzgerald was as good as I remembered it. Again, this place was great, and although the rest of Cleveland really let me down, Great Lakes is a place I hope to visit again soon.

One of my favorite brewies, they deliver no-nonsense offerings that have taste, complexity and are quite sessionable for the most part. The portfolio is medium-sized, but expansive, paying homage to lagers as well as stouts and ales. If you enjoy a pleasant atmosphere with a warm, old vibe than this is your place to pull up a stool. If you canít make it to the brewpub, at least buy some of the retail items as they will amaze you in that something truly spectacular can come out of Cleveland.

Great, local friendly place. They have a great selection of regular beers, and a nice mix of specialty beers depending on the season. Iíve never been disappointed with the beer, the food or the service. The brewery tours are always fun. Iíd heartily recommend the Great Lakes Brewery for any out of town visitorsI also always take some Great Lakes Beer when I visit my son-in-law in NC.

My first trip to this brewpub last night. This place has so much going for it. The building has so much character, from the bar with the bullet holes from the Elliot Ness days, to the great little pub area down in the cellar, the ambiance is so quaint and unique. The beer selection is nice since GL brews are so good. The service was definitely accomodating and nice. I brought the whole family and I was impressed with how laid back this place was with children. The food was great. I had the flat iron steak which is marinated in EF porter and was fantastic. The giftshop is small but has friendly service as well. I was nothing short of impressed with this brewpub. Iím no longer a smoker so the smokefree thing was great for me... Very nice place!
