We ate at the Great Lakes Brewing Company on our recent trip to Cleveland. We were seated in a green house area that was a separate away from the res of the bar. It was quiet, but lacked character. I ordered the pretzel chicken. It was excellent. The chicken was very juicy and had a nine flavor. It was served... More

GLBC is in an interesting area, and worth a visit because the beer selection and quality are outstanding. Food is good, but nothing is outstanding--typical bar/pub fare. But the beer tastes fresh and the choices are never-ending.

While visiting Cleveland friends took us to Great Lakes brewing company for dinner. We were seated quickly. Service was good. I ordered the pretzel encrusted chicken came with two chicken breasts with a small side of mashed seasoned potatoes and green beens. The chicken was a little over done the green beans were cold. We ordered the chorizo and cheese... More

I visited today with my wife and son. Highly recommend trying the pub only beers. They're only available at the brew pub. You can always try half pour size beer.

Our "go to" place when entertaining out of town beer aficionados. Great beer and food to match. A "must go to" when visiting Cleveland.

We visited on a hot early September evening, and enjoyed a nice Quad, Double IPA & Oktoberfest (good body for an Oktoberfest). The food was better than can be had at many breweries in variety & quality. Indoor and sidewalk patio seating options.

We visited after finding Great Lakes Brewing Company on a TV food map site and found they offered a fresh lake food special of the day. We had been looking for a place that offered lake walleye and it happened to be their special the night of our visit. The place was busy with a wait to get a table,... More

The original micro brewery in cleveland and in my opinion still the best. I would recommend taking the tour your first time and getting a sampler to try all their beers. Always a great time!

We made a luncheon date to meet old friends that I hadn't seen in 30 years. They travelled from Columbus and we from the East side of CLE. We met at 11:00 and were the first diners on New Years Eve. We were seated by the fireplace and attended to quickly by our server. We ordered beers which are always... More

After touring the brewery, we came here for dinner. It is a casual bar / dining restaurant with a menu than spans appetizers to lunch to dinner. We had an excellent dinner. All the beers brewed at the time are on tap. A special presentation only available in the restaurant was a Christmas Ale aged in bourbon barrels - decadent!!!
