This is an establishment I want to love, but for several reasons, I cannot give it more than an average grade. I have been to this brewpub several times, each visit has been similar.
The room itself is not large, appears to be set more for for seating patrons at tables than to belly-up at the bar. Each time I have been here, it has been fairly busy. Not that this is a bad thing, but I prefer to sit at the bar. Perhaps if I paid a visit on 'off-nights' for the Xcel nearby I would find a spot at the bar. The beers themselves are decent, always selections on cask which is a bonus. I have never had any beer here that has made me want to go out of my way to return for it. The food is good, but not worth a trip by itself. Again, nothing to write home about. Never have had any problems with the service; some servers seem to know a lot about the beer selection, some not so much. Never have had a rude or inattentive server, so cannot complain. Bonus points for the patio in summertime, which is lovely.
Overall, a nice place to go before hockey games or concerts at the Xcel Energy Center. If you find yourself in downtown St Paul, worth a visit. Simply not enough here to warrant a specific trip from elsewhere, however.

Great Waters Brewing was located in the heart of St. Paul in an old building on an old square. Inside the building was old school industrial feel with nice tables as well as outdoor seating. The quality of the food was ok....the beer was quite good. The service was great and to kick things off my six year old spilled chocolate milk everywhere and our server handled it like a champ! The selection for food and beer was outstanding. The food was good to borderline great. Some of the items were great and others not so much. The value was good.
