I've been to Great Lakes several times since moving to Cleveland for law school and am always impressed. They only have their own beer on tap, which is no problem. I have yet to have a bad beer from them and their taps are constantly rotating. They always have their year round offerings on tap (Ed Fitz, Dortmunder, Com. Perry, Elliot Ness and Burning River), plus their seasonals and several brewery only offerings. The brewery only releases are usually really good - I especially recommend "Quitness" (dry-hopped IPA) and Wolfhead Stout (dry Irish Stout).

Great Lakes brings the same attention to quality to their food as they do their beer. Everything on the menu is tasty - I've enjoyed their pretzels, cheese plates, sweet potato ravioli and burgers. I'm actually writing this review after returning from St. Patrick's Day dinner at the brewpub - it was truly excellent. Really great corned beef and soda bread.

I find the atmosphere here can get a little noisy, especially on weekends. The waits tend to get excessive on weekends too. These are both the result of the brewery's increasing popularity, which you cannot really fault.

Overall, Great Lakes' brewpub is a great place to grab dinner and some great beer. Definitely stop by if you're in Cleveland.
