    I knew the beer would be good. I didn't know just how good the food was before eating. Exceeded our expectations big time. Would happily recommend the Butternut Squash Ravioli.

    The fries are SO good! Also the tots are super huge and basically a latke in a ball.

    Try the Buckeye Burger. Don't let the description fool you. The Chocolate BBQ sauce is like a Mexican mole--not sweet. The peanut butter is subtle. Together they make this burger delicious!

    Food is expensive for what it is and it's always crowded; go to the basement bar for some cool atmosphere and less people.

    It's fun to bring visitors and get a full-size sampler (it's every beer -- you won't need to order any other drinks)

    If you take the tour, you get 4 tastes. And hit the brewpub also- many more of their beers on tap. Tripel Dog Dare is to die for.

    Solid brews with good food. Nothing will blow you away, but you're at the source so enjoy. You'll find more exotic stuff down in Akron at Hoppin Frog.

    Sack up and get the full flight. For food, start off with the local & fresh plate with creamy cheeses and smoky meats. Follow up with some fish and chips, rich buckeye burger or pretzel chicken.

    Their pumpkin beer is delish. (So is their everyday Eddie Fitz.) The bread pudding was awesome and I will be coming back to have it again once Xmas Ale comes back.

    Eliot Ness is one of my favorite standbys, but most of of Great Lakes' brews are well crafted.
  • Emily Z.
    The food and beer were good, but it was understaffed for a Friday, the greeting staff did not communicate clearly, and the kitchen was slow.
