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.

Just a couple of blocks east of I-94, it is very easy access. I had the brisket sandwich and it was very good, not Texas quality, but extremely good for Michigan. The place was busy and our waitress was occupied by a needy table of twelve. Another waitress helped her out and ensured we didn't go dry. A little loud because it was crowded but we could talk at our table of four. The beer selection had something for everyone and I loved the Star Chicken IPA. I can't wait to go back.

Not a bad place to pull off the Highway (I-94) and grab some grub.
Pluses are: patio / beer garden; friendly waitstaff; good food; on-premises beer processing; growlers to-go; clean restrooms; generous deals on draft beer if you want to join their beer-mug club
Minuses are: train tracks are right up against the patio / beer garden (really loud); music on the PA was too loud and quite unpleasant (that's a personal preference... I am mid-50s)

Visited during Labor Day weekend.

The place was packed, but waited for 45 minutes across the street at the annex and sipped a Brother Benjamin

Went next door when we were called, and had a flight with a friend. Beer selection was great.

If you get the food, then get the BBQ/smoked meats as all smoking/BBQing is done in-house.

Service was "meh", but overall a great time.,

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.

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.
