Came on a slow night. The wild were playing away. Not many customers while we were there. Had the grilled buffalo sandwich. Would pass on it. Not much buffalo sauce. Others had London Broil. Said is was ok. Jambalaya should be eaten in New Orleans not in St. Paul. I can see this as a good place for a beer... More

Stopped in here for dinner one night. Cool bar/brewery atmosphere with great food. The portions are quite large so you definitely get good bang for your buck. The restaurants own beers are delicious and have a good range of styles.

Our server was great, very personable and willing to take time explaining the beers on tap. We loved the Scotch ale and the Vulcanus Rex porter. The pork sandwich was wonderful, I wish I could take one back home to my dad. The Rasta wings are tongue-numbingly hot - that was fine, we were warned, but we expected more of... More

Great Waters Brewing Company is a wonderful stop in Downtown St. Paul. I had a sampler and enjoyed several of their first rate home brewed selections. The atmosphere was casual and the service was excellent!

I think they just got too busy but it was rough. Order was wrong. We had to ask for our appetizer after we got our meals. Server was sweet but we never saw her after the food came. Food was mediocre though. Nothing terrible but absolutely nothing I would walk across the street to buy. Overall, I'm not upset but... More

Yep. Well staffed. Food came out hot. I had the walleye Sandwich and was impressed. Don't drink, but the rest of the family love the beers.

I had a steak dinner their once. It was nothing special, maybe with tip, no drinks 33 bucks, kind of on the high side for nothing special. Most recently I have a Rueben. It was 10.50. Two thin slices of pastrami, my guess it was some type of cold cut. The kraut was about 1/2 inch, the bread was alright.... More

We really enjoyed hanging out at Great Waters while in town for the Twin Cities Marathon. They offered $3 beer to event participants - great deal, and the craft brews we tried were all excellent. On an early Saturday evening, this place was hopping. Great atmosphere & our server, Thomas, was awesome - casual but competent. We weren't particularly impressed... More

We were there for the Ryder Cup and even on the Saturday night, we were one of the only ones in. Can't figure out why though - the beer was good and the food too. Not majorly expensive either. Hope it gets busier!
