This was a great place. The station was an excellent venue for a brewpub. Our waitress knew her beers and gave me a tour of the beer garden which will ope later in May. The food was excellent. I had mussels and an excellent chicken sandwich. We were able to speak to the brewmaster. Another brewery in town uses their equipment over the weekend. My disappointment was they were out of the three beers I wanted to taste.

The place is located in old train station and the ambiance is great. There are good selection of local microbreweries and also for those who prefer wine, they have a local wines produced in Erie, Wine Country.
Their own beers are nice, too. We tried Hopness Monster IPA. It’s not high volume in alcohol (5.9%) as usual in other IPAs but it’s drinking is smooth and still hoppy.
Food and service is also nice. Especially their fries are exceptional. Soups and burgers should be considered, too.
I definitely, recommend the place.

The Ambiance should really get a 5 because its a very uniquely beautiful building, but if you sit in the main dining room the noise level can be a little unpleasant. I really suggest the bar dining area. The food is excellent, but i’ve never been overly impressed with their menu, just not enough to choose from. The selection of craft brews is nice and area specific so it’s a great place if you want to try a lot of Pennsylvania and tri-state area brews. Their own beers are ok, with an occasional really good beer, but also an occasional really poor beer. Still, there’s something very special about this place that makes me come back regularly, and enjoy my visit every time.

Big place with not a whole lotta parking on a friday night. 20 minute wait for seating even tho lots of empty tables were available. Greeter was initially a little rude. Bottle shop inside had quite a few bombers but very few singles to make a six pack from. Quite loud. Layout of place is nice; converted train station. Got a 4 0z sample of all 8 house beers for $10. Fish was really good and coleslaw was exceptionally good. Fries were a little soggy but went well with coleslaw. Wife had portabella mushroom wrap and thought it was good. Even tho we asked to be seated away from the band, they put us there anyhow. Was expecting really loud music but it was tolerable. Overall good beer expereince. Waitress at table was much nicer that greeter. Been wanting to try this place for a while now its done!

The decor and design of this converted train station made the trip worth a stop. Really impressive! The beers were just okay and food was also just okay but it felt like I was stepping back in time.

This is an Old train station close many years ago. The city of Erie, PA revitalized the old building and turned it into a brewery. Almost everything was restored to original condition. I wish more towns in America would keep old buildings alive with restoration. Really great décor! I eat a smothered chicken sandwich and it was normal pub fare. Our bartender was nice enough and did chat with us a bit.
The beers are real average and have a tie with Lavery Brewing Company. They also had a decent bottle list focusing on Pennsylvania beers. If you are ever in the area, stop in and take the tour.

Interesting place. When you first walk in you are immediately entranced by the old train station architecture, but then you find a brewpub awkwardly situated within. Two different dining rooms, a neat train arrival board of beers, two different bars, bathrooms off in some far corner. Two entrances, too many televisions. Food was okay. Staff was not particularly enjoyable. Beers were uncomfortable. An interesting stop in Erie, but nothing world-class.

Nice to a beer menu dedicated to PA. Not too expensive. Great atmosphere and no problems with our service. Burgers are excellent, ground on site.

We had stopped here on our last stop of Tour de NWPA.
A: The place is a refurbished train station, the bar area is small but they have plenty of tables throughout the station.
Q: The beer quality was decent, of our group, no one complained about the in house beers. I had the peanut butter porter and the belgian and they were both decent.
S: Out waitress was very attentive and made some good recommednations, friendly.
S: They offered 9 in house beers that were a wide array of beer, plus another 30 bottles from many PA brewers.
F: Decent, everyone in our group was satisified with their selections.
V: For 6 of us drinkning and eating, the tab was under $25 per person, and that included 2/3 drinks per person.
Overall, Union Station is a nice stop while in Erie, decent beer, decent food, decent place.
