A review from my visit to Greenbush Brewery on 7/19/13, a busy Saturday evening.

A: Very fun, laid back atmosphere, though the place was incredibly busy and crowded. My group of four asked to be seated and were told it would be about 30 minutes. Not many tables to sit and eat, a bar that seats 20-30. About 10 minutes later we were able to find 4 spots at the bar to sit and have a beer before being seated right at about 30 wait. It was pretty noisy, bar/restaurant is not large. Vintage look with hard wood, exposed brick, and old beer cans bottles sitting on random shelves throughout.

Q: From the food to the beer to the server, everything was top notch, clean and quick. No complaints here. Easy to find parking right across, though it appears we were the lucky ones as we saw many people needing to park a long way off and walk.

S: The server once we got seated was fantastic. The bartender was not very knowledgeable about the beers, at one point telling me one of the beers available for carry out was a coffee cream stout only to find on the bottle it says russian imperial stout. Not mad about that as I love an RIS, but the guys behind the bar should no the difference. One interesting thing is that they do not serve waters. The have a self-serve cooler w/ plastic cups if you do not order a drink.

F: The food was incredible. I ordered a smoked beef brisket and a salad. The salad dressing was a very full flavored ranch style w/ lots of interesting spices. The brisket was served with 2 sauces one was BBQ-esque, another was mustard-esque, but neither were either BBQ or Mustard, both really tasting and flavorful

V: Great place to stop and eat and have beer, food and drinks are very well priced, the only thing Ifelt was over priced was the beer flight. $12 for 6 pours, but you cannot get a pour from the class C beers. According to a small business owner across the street with that we chatted with after we had dinner, the place is packed all the time for dinner- Monday - Sunday. She said people are coming from all over for the beers. I would highly recommend coming to Greenbush for dinner and drinks, but be prepared for a wait, though its definitely worth it. (2,191 characters)

Great spot. Definitely the cool local hang out, packed at all hours of the day. Food is decent - slightly better than serviceable though not entirely generous or creative - but the beer selection is broad and solid. On a sunny day the outdoor areas across the street are a win. (277 characters)

Nice menu and good selection of beers. They have a flight option for a reasonable cost. We walked in and were seated right away. Easy to get to. Not too far from I94. (166 characters)

Place was packed at 2 on Wednesday. Came in to check it out and grab a flight. I sat at the bar in the main restaurant (not the annex). They beers on tap were a good mix of the stuff they bottle as well as some brewery-only. The flight price was a bit high a ~$12 if I recall correctly, but the pour size was solid. (315 characters)

So its right off the interstate so I had to stop. ..I mean it is a brewery right? So first off let me just say I'm not a fan of any of their beers however it's a great place to eat and the staff was awesome. Love the small town atmosphere with a addition across the street. I definitely will stop every time I goto lansing! Just for the food though. (352 characters)

Greenbush is a solid brewery with good tasting beer, friendly staff and great food. The annex across the street is a perfect addition; you can sip a beer while waiting for your table. Always a good selection of beers on tap and available for carry out. (254 characters)
