We hit Great Waters after catching a Wild game at the Xcel Center. Nice bar area, but a bit "echo-y" with all hard surfaces. It can be hard to hear people at your own table when it is busy. Service left a little to be desired - quite slow after taking about ten minutes for someone to take our initial drink orders.

Beer quality and selection were pretty good. I had the Tesla's Coil IPA and the stout, both were tasty and true to style. My fiance had a couple of the Winter Solstice Ale and liked it quite a bit.

We had an order of the nachos, they were not the best we've had. Our friends enjoyed their cheesecake very much. Previous visits have taught us the burgers are pretty good here too.

The beer is the draw so we will likely go back to Great Waters when we have occasion to be in downtown St. Paul.

Nice feel in the St Paul down town, good food and service. Nice view on a cold winter night after dark, site next to the windows and enjoy the view and brew.

I think of Great Waters as a decent but fairly average brewpub. The beers aren't very bold but rather tend towards the easy and drinkable side. I haven't ordered much food besides apps. Service was a little spotty, but friendly. Definitely worth a shot.

I like sitting out on the patio in summer having a beer. While I am not a great fan of their beer, there are usually at least a couple that are good. The food is burgers and sandwiches and bar food. Some of it is good.
