Came on a Thursday for lunch. Hard to find parking (we had to pay $5 at a parking garage). Located in a beautiful part of Saint Paul, just minutes from the capital. Service wasnít that good at first, as it took a while to have our order taken, especially since it wasnít that busy when we got there. The sampler was for eight beers, but they only had seven available at our stop, so the bartender gave us a half-pint of our favorite one to make up for it. I was a big fan of their Full Broadside India Pale Ale. Food wasnít that great, although Iíll give them a break since I wasnít too hungry. It costs about what youíd expect at a downtown brewpub in a business district.

They had 10 of their beers written on the chalkboard. I was only able to try 4 and thought they brew a taste, but safe set of beers. Had pork chops for dinner and thought the meat was very average but the sauce was tastey. Worth a visit if youíre in the area.

Seems designed for the white collar social climber crowd. Unspectacular beers that give the folks who want to stick their toes in the water a safe chance to do it. The prices during happy hour are great, but barely better than Town Hallís. So i only go to Great Waters when iím downtown on a weeknight, past ten oíclock, for some other reason. The bartenders here are good guys, and yes, holy smokes could they use an interior decorator. The place looks like a convention hall board meeting space.

Decent place with seven beers on tap when I visited. Most were bitters or pale ales of some degree, and there was a hefe, stout and brown ale as well. Nothing was spectacular, but the four cheese pizza was tasty. They could really use an interior decorator as well.

Visited here on a rainy weekend in late April í06. Nice downtown setting with a great view of Rice Park and the Landmark Building. Had about ten on tap, four on cask, the the rest "on push" as they call it. All were above average - especially enjoyed the Blackwatch Oat Stout. Served much warmer than usual, which was appeciated, especially by my wife. The food was about average considering the price - but you are paying for the downtown location. Crowds were a bit sparse, hopefully it was just becuase of the nasty weather.

Highly impressed by the fact that they had four separate cask beers on tap. Iím not typically a big cask person, but having the opportunity to try four different styles together was a great learning experience. Beer-wise, decent selection and generally pretty good quality, but I appreciate the fact that there were a variety of more subtle styles on the menu and not the becoming-usual swath of imperial stouts and barrel-aged monstrosities. Nice atmosphere here and the bar staff were friendly and helpful. Didnít get a chance to try the food, but Iíll get that on my next trip.

Nicely done, upscale place in a great downtown location...I love downtown brewpubs! Strangely enough, the keg beers seemed on the whole much better than the casks which were all rather watery, but I give this place credit for focusing so deliberately on English styles. Excellent if somewhat pricey food.

Definitely a modern brewpub. Very good food, suprisingly better than the standard fare Iíve found at pubs. The beer is quite nice. I havenít had anything that really made me cringe. Unfortunately, they have about 7 standards and the seasonals do not rotate all that frequently. Brews tend to stay on tap a while. Even still, itís certainly worth a trip. Just donít expect to be able to taste half their brews in two weeks. Oh, great patio too.

Nice clean and big place, seems very classy. I was there on a weekday night so it wasn't very crowded. The brewer himself came out when he saw me rating beers and introduced himself, he seemed like a friendly guy who didn't hesitate to answer all my questions. A good variety of beers, too.
