Got stuck working near here for a couple months. Its a neat looking location that is set up fairly well. Downtown area it is located in is neat also.

The food is pretty bland, as is the norm in Ohio from what I can tell. I think the pizza is their strong suit.

The beer they brew is bad, like jacked up homebrew bad. No mouthfeel on anything, poor carbonation and just don't taste good at all. I'm honestly not sure how they stay in business selling their beer. The have a decent bottle selection, about 12 different ones.

There is no reason to go out of your way to come here, but if you find yourself in the area I think this is about it. I went on several different occasions due to lack of any other options so I know I didn't just catch em on an off day.

Every small town in America should have it’s own brewing company. But not if it makes beer like this one.

The location was encouraging. Marietta is a cute, historic, architecturally interesting piece of living Americana right on the banks of the Ohio River. The building itself has towering ceilings, exposed brick walls, and beautiful murals painted right on the red bricks.

Continuing with the positive points, the food is decent if wildly unimaginative. Everything is pretty cheap and comes out fairly tasty. They definitely lose some points based on ingredient quality, though. For example, I guarantee that my prime rib beer braised sandwich was in no way, shape, or form made out of prime rib. If it was, it was the most overcooked, tough piece of prime rib I’ve ever had. And while my fiance’s salad was nicely adorned with some tasty flavor combinations, the underlying lettuce was iceberg.

I mean, come on. If you’re going to put that much effort into a salad, at least have the decency to put something other than the blandest, least nutritional leaf known to man.

Which brings me to the beer. It was pretty bad. I don’t think I’ve ever been to a brewpub before (and this was #232 for me) where, after having tried the sampler, I seriously considered ordering a PBR instead of a pint of their own brew. The blonde tasted like PBR but thinner. There was a summer shandy-esque lemonade wheat concoction that made me want to vomit. A copper ale and IPA had decent flavor profiles to begin with but left the mouth lingering with an awful bitter taste for several minutes. And the stout was just flat out undrinkable – a first for me regarding stouts in my beer travels. The grains just tasted burnt or something. Blech.

If in the area, I highly recommend skipping this place.

Stopped here for a quiet early evening dinner during our trip and found that it was a reasonably good choice.

It was a Sunday evening and the website makes it a point to let you know that the brewer will be in the house on Sunday. We met him and had a chance to chat a bit about his work, etc. and some of his beers. He has been head brewer since late 2010 and seemed to appreciate the feedback I gave him about what I liked about the two beers I'd sampled and where I thought, for my tastes, they might be improved a bit.

We also found out that the "building" was, as we had sort of guessed, once upon a time an alley way between two other buildings that had been closed off and converted into the Marietta Brewing site.

The food was well prepared, fresh and pretty good, but took a bit too long I thought for the size of the crowd when we first arrived. While we were waiting for and eating the meal there was a fairly steady flow of people into the building so the place seems popular with the Marietta natives as well.

The service was adequate but did not stand out in any particular way.

The beers were fine but not particularly exceptional in any way.
