So my scores are all over the place for this one for different reasons. Ambiance is top notch, original old wood elliot and ness bar on the entry level, great vintage eating area upstairs, and awesome caverns downstairs, really nice place. Service was very good the few tiems ive been here and never been disappointed. Selections is pretty solid, only their beers on tap, but have all the staples, plus seasonal and a few one off brew pub only beers. Food is very veryt good, but are served in small portions. Vlaue was tough because the beers are well worth it, good, and fairly priced, but the food, while tasy, was ridiculously expensive, especially considering how much you get. Overall, still worth stopping for drinks and atmosphere, but I would suggest eating somewhere else first if going for dinner.

Great place with a great selection of own beers. We ordered the sampler of all beers avaIable, tasted 5 and they were just great. Food is OK but selection less. But then this is a brewery. Good selection also in their shop.

Great food...great beer. We had the stuffed peppers as an appetizer, the pretzel-crusted chicken and a burger. All were great. You canít go wrong at this place.

This restaurant/brewery was an awesome place to be before the Indians game. Got some chow and an IPA and took the "Fatty Wagon" shuttle to the game and back for a few greenbacks. Visited on a weekday. Itís probably overwhelmed on the weekend.

When I visited: May 2012. What I had: The Wright Pils (draught), Commodore Perry IPA (draught), Holy Moses White Ale (draught), Grilled Bratwurst & Pierogies, Margherita Pub Pizza and white wine for the lady. What I liked: Beautiful outdoor patio, delicious food, superb beer lineup that covers a wide range of styles, interesting one-offs, tried two GLB brews that I hadnít sampled before, bartenders provided warm and timely service, cozy ambiance downstairs. What I disliked: no guest taps or bottles, slow service on the patio, brewery attracts some "Bud Light" types due to central touristy location. Would I go back? Yes. Overall Rating: 84

Not bad. Their "pub only" brews can be quite delicious. The everyday beers are meh. Love the "beer cellar" room downstairs. Definitely worth the stop when in town but dont expect to be blown away.

Brewery: Do the tour, its free and fun Pub: Large resuruant with two bars, on when you immediatly walk in and one down the steps to the right. This place fillls up almost nightly and its best to make reservations ahead. Bar up stairs features holes where Elliot Ness was shot at. Bar down stairs is like a celler and usually not quite as crowded. Food is upscale pub fare and tasty. Never a problme with service during my 3 years coming here. Lots of fun.

This place is always busy. From open until close it seems. I have eaten in the bar area, restaurant area, cellar, beer garden, upstairs, and have attended several events across the street in the tasting room. And have toured several times. They have marked at the bar a bullet hole where someone took a shot at Elliott Ness. That is pretty cool. Service is typical and can be slow when they are busy. Food is upscale bar food. Its always very good and consistent. They only carry their beer on tap which is a downer. But they make solid beer so thatís not such a bad thing. And they always have 1 or 2 pub only exclusives on tap to try. Overall this place is very cool. Great setting, place has a ton of history. If you go downstairs to use the bathroom just walk into the cellar area to check it out. They tap Thursday firkins in the cellar there and have held events there as well. Its worth a look. Overall a great brewery here. I just wish they collaborated more with other local places. They just keep themselves isolated from the ísceneí.
