    The crew and I were in Cleveland for a shoot. Our sales leader in the area took us to GLBC. We sat at the tables outside, what a great vibe in Ohio City. We went in and checked out the historic bar th...  more »

    Our family celebrated a wedding at this location. It was actually a private room upstairs in the brewery. The ambiance was what you would want in a brewery. They have a beautiful old wood carved bar. ...  more »

    This little spot in the airport was perfect for me to hop on the wifi and work while waiting on my flight. The bartender was pretty attentive, and did a nice job, but her whistling drove me insane! I'...  more »

    Myself and a group of guys get together monthly for good food and drinks. We like to try something new each time and make an experience out of it. For May, we chose Great Lakes Brewing Company. We started off with a 1 hour tour of the brewing facility. It was very interesting and tour guide was knowledgeable and funny. You get four beer samples along the way as well. We then ate dinner at the restaurant right after. It was very busy but we got a table right away. The service as fine and the food was quite good. I had a huge burger and some appetizers. The beer is high quality but quite filling so keep that in mind when ordering food. We had a really good time and will definitely go back. I would recommend to anyone who likes quality beer and learning some history of the area.

    We are not sure what Larry did so wrong last week, but the food was fantastic! Great service, great beer and great food. It is so refreshing to have a waiter ask how you want a burger, then really deliver. If their lawyers make them cook to well done, why ask? Nice job everyone.

    First I must say parking around here is awful but it's in the historic Ohio City district of Cleveland. Normally that knocks off a star for me but this place makes up for the inconvenience. When you see inside this building it is historic and they do what they can to keep it that way. Staff are great and are extremely knowledgeable about the beer they serve and will be honest about a dish they serve. Shocking not every is amazing to them on the menu and I appreciate their honesty. Menu is a decent size and they run daily specials. What you will notice is local sourced ingredients which exposes you to other things Cleveland. Bertman's mustard comes to mind. The beer has the local staples that they have year around but they also rotate seasonal brews that rotate in and out every few months. And to top this off they will also have one off brews that they are experimenting with. Tours. If you want to see how and where it's all made tours are right across the street from the bar and restaurant. Call and make an appointment they fill up fast. Great Lakes Brewery is a Cleveland staple they help give the city some of it's essence. And they do make sure no two visits here are the same. If you are close or if you are in town for business stop in this place won't disappoint.

    5 stars for service. 5 stars for great beer. 2 stars for food. I’ve eaten here twice now and I wasn’t impressed either time. The Meatloaf was just ok. The Mac and Cheese was just nasty. I would definitely go back here to drink the great beer and both my servers were wonderful, friendly, and attentive. 5 stars for the tour. Its 5 bucks and well worth it. You get 5 beer samples and some great history about the location, the beer, and the city of Cleveland.

    Fantastic! We just had pizza and beer, and it was amazing! They have a great variety of beers and their pizza is simple, fresh, and flavorful. Our waitress was funny, happy, and made our time there fun! So glad we came!

Where to stay in Cleveland

Most of Cleveland's hotels are located in downtown, though you can also plenty of comfortable and affordable rooms in the city's outlying neighborhoods. Many downtown hotels offer discounted weekend rates and deals that include tickets to some of the city's major attractions, but if you prefer to stay away from the central part of town, consider the neighborhoods east of the Cuyahoga River. Staying in this part of Cleveland allows you easy access to the city's cultural district, renowned for its museums, galleries, and parks.
