Walked in here last week at lunch, but I was there to drink since I work midnights, and I've been planning a trip here with my Toledo buddy for some time. The decor was very nice, with the brick and old beer paraphernalia throughout. Service was not bad, but was off a bit. Maybe they're not used to the lunch crowd that doesn't eat, but the ambiance behind the bar was tense and uneasy, and the locale seemed wrought with confusion...a party of businessmen waited for their friends outside the main area on the second floor, and there was no one else in there except the two of us, and we wanted to drink.
The wait staff was very polite and knowledgeable about the regular and seasonal offerings. We ordered a raspberry wheat and a saison that had won a recent contest. The saison was quite good, but the wheat was hard to finish. The prices were reasonable, and I bought an attractive pint glass with the heron on it. I enjoyed our trip here, and would like to try it again in the future in the evening hours, but I was not overly impressed.

The brewpub/restaurant has a lot character. It is set in the second floor an old 19th Century hotel that also houses several other businesses, including a steakhouse, pastery shop, pub, restaurant and brewery. Each of these are very distinctive. It also contains a wonderful collection of beer memorabilia in the Toledo Brewing Hall of Fame & Museum. The glassed-in copper colored mash tun and kettle are the defining features of the pub. The Tap Room (bar) on the main floor (second floor) also has a mixed old world new world character with brick walls and new wood tables and chairs both raised and regular height.. The wood bar is located on the far wall with a large selection of spirits and booze in front of a large mirrored wall. They serve only Maumee Bay beers with 11 taps flowing, some regular, others seasonal.
Most of the beers are very good. For food, the specialty of the house is pizza, baked in a wood fired oven. The menu is pretty full featured and diverse, since it is adjoined by at least 2 resturants. I have sampled many items from the menu and found the food to be good but not great. The prices are very reasonable and I highly recommend this place for a good drinking and dining experience.
