We had the best service here. Quick, good food, and our server was awesome (I think his name was Kevin). We joked (but were serious) that it was the best service we had on our entire trip to Ireland and back.

I did not dsay anything as I ordered some buffalo chicken and when...it arrived it saved me from more of the chili. I did not say anything as I travel alot and sometime you end of with bad food.

Good experience but service was a bit off and a bit expensive. Thus the “good” rating. Beer is great as is the food selection and quality. Get the price in order ( 20 for a salad and 19 for a flatbread) and help the staff...on better / more attentive service and my rating goes to very good.More

We thought we would go for a tour but we were running out of time so we just went in for lunch. Very cool building we had salads which were delicious and we did not have the beer which is kind of funny since it’s...a Brewery but we were not really thinking about drinking so early in the afternoon.More

Our first stop in Cleveland after a long day of driving was at Great Lakes Brewing because well hunger and thirst were calling our names. The menu has a polish twist to it with pierogi flatbread pizza, sausage sample, and pierogi’s with sour cream. The...Fitz Burger with its onions, bacon, and Edmund Fitzgerald Porter BBQ sauce hit the spot after all the driving and the Edmund Fitzgerald Porter paired nicely with the burger of course. The BBQ chicken flatbread with its Dortmunder Gold Lager BBQ sauce was cooked perfectly and tasted great, compliments for using their beer in many of the sauces. The stand out beers were the Barrel Aged Imperial Oyster Stout with its combo of smoky, salty, rich oak flavor that warmed me up on the inside. The other beer I really liked was Holy Moses White Ale, a witbier with orange peel, coriander, and chamomile for a refreshing light beer. Now for the odd I didn’t think it would work but it work beer is the Sado Green Tea Ale, a pale ale brewed with matcha green tea, its light bright combination of hops and green tea flavor may seem weird but after a while they played nicely with each other.

This restaurant is right in the heart of Ohio City. It’s close to many other breweries and restaurants and the West side Market. When u first walk in there is a hostess and waiting area. It was very calm and quiet with plenty of places...to sit while u waiting. There was also a gift shop by the hostess stand u could visit while you waited. Once u were seated, there were so many spaces. A bar on the main floor, an upstairs bar, a downstairs bar, and a patio! The beer was good, but the food was just average. The place was quite busy on a Saturday and some of our food arrived cold.More

We stopped in on 12/16 for our Christmas luncheon. And all of us had burgers as I recall......Everyone raved about the food. I had the Dort because I needed to drive and work the remaining part of the day. Others had the Christmas Ale. No...complaints. Great service, the reservation was ready and all went very well.More

I love their beer and always wanted to visit the brewery. Very commercial but the bar is very old as is the building. I'm glad I stopped and had a brew but it's nothing special.

Beer was good. Soup was ok. Ordered the special which was the fish burger. Fish piece didn’t even cover half the bun. Was given choice of fries or perigees. Went for the pierogies and got charged $3 for 3 pierogies!! That was the most disappointing...part. They tasted good but were practically one bite pierogies. Won’t need to know for next time as we likely won’t be going back.More

There is a paid lot behind the central market right off the bridge from downtown. It's pretty cheap. There is on street parking in the area as well but it's limited.
