4.03/5  rDev -7.6%

I recently made my third visit to Great Lakes. The building has all kinds of history associated with it. As you enter, you are met with a dining area to the left with the gift shop beyond that. The upstairs bars and dining area are ahead of you. I have never dined nor drank upstairs. It is very clean and well lit. I had gone to the basement bar each time.

The basement is more dimly lit. The walls are cobblestone and it is a relatively small area. The bar was full on this occasion, so my date and I grabbed a small booth.

The server did not make us wait long before she attended to us. I was immediately disappointed when I found out that they ran out of Alberta Clipper earlier that day. They were also out of Rackhouse Ale and Tripel Dog Dare. I settled for a Abbey Ave. Dubbel. As with all Great Lakes selections, it was perfect for the style.

The menu isn't extensive but they have pizza and some nice comfort dishes. I settled on a open faced pot roast sandwich which was good but not great. My date chose the chicken pot pie and raved at how good it was.

Ovreall, I have had favorable experiences here. My only disappointment is that on the last two occasions there have been one selection of beer on tap that I cannot purchase in bottles. Don't get me wrong, I love Great Lakes beers. I just want to try some other offerings. I have either had poor timing or the beers are so good that the demand exceeds the supply.

This rating is mainly due to the great beers they make. All of them are very good and a couple are really excellent. The food was only ok i thought. The service was a little shy of ok. Not really bad but definitely not good. This would be higher if the food and service at this place were nearly as good as the beer.
