I stopped in here w/ HellsBells24 after stopping at The Andersons and before the Mudhens game. We definitely made a great choice stopping here.

Atmosphere: This has the best atmosphere of any brewpub I've ever been too. The building was old school brick and has been around since the 1850's. This place is like a museum for old beer signs, lights, bottle, glasses, cans, openers, etc...I've never seen such an amazing selection of old signs, bottles, beer memorabilia. If you have been drinking beer for a long time, you will see some things you haven't seen in a while. There are a few TVs on the wall and by the bar and the brewing equipment is visable from all parts of the bar and sitting area.

Quality: Everything we had here was high quality. From the beers to the food to the service, all of it was top notch.

Service: The service was very good. The bar tender gave us a few samples of the beers not part of the sampler, our beers, water, food all came out real quick. The bartender was knowlegdable of all the beers, which was nice. They also have a shuttle service that is free to the Mudhens games (you just have to tip the driver). They drive and pick you up right in front of the stadium. The driver was going to recommend some places for us to check out if we were staying in town for the night.

Selection: They had a nice selection of beer and food. For the beers, they had Buckeye Beer (a very nice lager), a pale ale, a Centennial IPA on the hand pull, a malty red and vienna lager, a saison, and a oak aged cherry stout. We took a growler to the cherry stout to go. All of the beers were good, especially the stout, buckeye, and IPA. They had a nice and reasonable food menu that had plenty of appetizers, salads, sandwiches, pizza, and a few main dishes. We split a chicken, pepper, and pesto pizza and a pepperoni, spicy sausage, and green pepper pizzas. They were some of the best pizzas I've had at any restaurant and were very reasonable at 8.95 each. They had a beer for everyone....light, hoppy, malty, etc....They also had a full bar for the non beer drinkers.

Food: The pizzas we had (also above) was very good and reasonable.

Value: Like I mentioned above, the prices here are quite reasonable. All the food was under $10 except for the main dishes and the beer was $4.50 for a six beer sampler, $3.50 for a pint, or $8.75 for a pitcher.

Overall: This was one of the best brewpubs I've every been to and I've been to some nice ones. The atmosphere was the nicest, and the food and beers were very good too. Anyone going through Toledo or wanting to make a day trip (stopping at a few beer stores too), this is worth the stop. Its also not too far off I-75, which is nice. Highly, highly recommended.

I had two Amarillo Brillo. A very good Double IPA. The pastrami dip sandwich was okay. Probably get something different if I go again. My wife's chicken sandwich was better. The main reason for writing this post is the service. The service was fine. Our server was under the legal drinking age and was not able to guide us to the beers we may like. He was very capable and attentive as a server but I want to hear what the help likes. Sorry for the condescending sounding remark to our server. We will go back.

My buddy and I went on a day trip to the area. I had their breakfast stout prior to the visit and it was really great. Highlight was the food, you'll definitely get your money's worth. We were unsure about getting a few beers and the bartenders provided us with free samples which was great to see. Very friendly staff. We will be going back for sure.

Stopped by Maumee this past weekend, wanted to check out some of their stouts on draft, all were good. Grabbed a half growler of the double shot espresso stout togo. Wanted to shout out the bartender who filled the growler, it was done perfect. right to the top. I got worried when he walked away from the fill, but the taps had a flow control to slow the fill, very impressed.

I visited for dinner with a group a co-workers during a 2 day team meeting and I was very impressed with this brewery. It has a very old-world, dark style to it that feels completely different than the typical industrial warehouse style brewery that is so popular right now. This is a multi-story brewery/restaurant with a very good food menu and nice selection of both food and beer. They cover several different types of both food and beer, covering a wide variety of tastes and desires. There are some tvs around but they are fairly small. There is plenty of seating to go around and conversation is very easy due to the quietness of the place.

Really enjoyed this brewery. Entering the brewery feels like going back in time with all the old brewery memorabilia on the walls. They had at least 10-14 different brews on tap. A sampler flight was cheap, I believe under $10. Most importantly the quality of the beer was very solid. I had a nitro coffee cream ale that was a solid B-, A blood orange wit that was very fitting to style a B, glass hopper IPA B to B+ simple but very well balance, the total eclipse coffee stout was awesome-easily an A- or better, I honestly cannot recall the last two beers of the sampler off hand but they were at least C+ to B- quality. Overall, the beer was average to slightly above average.

The wait staff were awesome! Great service without being overbearing. The pizza was awesome. Well worth the visit. Will definitely revisit

This place needs more love. The food is always delicious (try the French dip) and the beer is consistently satisfying (total eclipse breakfast stout is a great one). But the greatest part of this place is the atmosphere and the staff who are always professional while being friendly. Everything is very reasonably priced for the quantity and quality

Cool location and if your a fan of breweriana, lots to look at. Service was very good and the food was as well. There were 10 house beers on tap and all were good, nothing spectacular but all solid. Wourth the visit if your in Toledo.

Very large place, and worth the visit for the memorabilia even if you don't drink beer. It is like a museum. There is a brick oven, wood-fired oven and some great food. The service was excellent, and they have carry out sales, including singles.

Vibe was 4.2.. just due to the fact that there were bartenders my girlfriend and I... Now I would give the 5 of us a solid 5 for having a kick ass vibe of our own. But I am in fact reviewing the bar. The beers were drank were really good, I had the Glass Hopper and the Blood Orange wit. And MI lady had the red said on and calypso lemon. The service was spot on excellent. And they had a nice selection of quality beers..
We didn't try any food...
I would recommend any and all go to Maumee bay Brewing...
