Great location. Close to the St. Paul Hotel, Children's Museum and the arena. Nice looking interior. Modern pub look with a long wrap around bar. Seating is a little cramped but not too bad. The beers are pretty good. Most are English style and are well done. They offer a sampler of all their beers. Great Waters has about half their beers on cask and the rest are regular taps. The service was pretty good. It was pretty good and we were just their for drinks but our servers was attentive and helpful. They had 9 different beers on tap that nice - mostly English style but they had a Belgian Bruin that was very nice, too. Did not try the food, but they had some nice looking options - plus a kids menu for those with children. All in all this is a nice brewpub in the heart of 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.
