We watched the football... More

I've been to the Great Dane here for several years but I came to write a review after a recent experience there. The Dane's fatal flaw is their inconsistency. The food is never the same, and sometimes you get it cold/soggy. Sometimes it's very good. It's sort of expensive which I'd be fine with if I was guaranteed it would... More

The good food items were eliminated. The beers are not good for a brewing co. Many times they are out of several selections of popular brews.

This is a brew pub with weekly trivia nights and live music. There is a large menu with many tasty sounding choices. We had a very large party and the service was friendly and accommodating. We wanted separate checks for each family, and the kids were not sitting with their parents, but the staff managed to get the orders and... More

We went for dinner with a large group. The atmosphere and the building of the Great Dane is nice. The service was friendly and the food served very quickly when the order was taken, which took a little while. The beers are a good variety and tasters offered for free.

I have had a longstanding rule that a microbrewery will always be a good place to eat. That rule was just broken. A beautiful facility with very disappointing service and bad food. The servers were very unprofessional and poorly trained. When I asked about their craft brewed beers I was told to read about them in a paper menu since... More

Visit often to try some of their home brewed beers and the unique fare. Full disclosure, we usually eat in the pub area which is done really well rather than the dining area which we find less appealing and lacking real character. The pub area has decent seating and the service is always good. The menu has been the same... More

But know... they only serve their own beers. Four stars... cause it's pretty good, but not amazing. Their brunch is disgusting/ 1 star for that... avoid at all costs. Dinner and lunch are delicious though.
