I really enjoyed eating here - the atmosphere was cool and the food delicious. We had a group of six and all tried something different. Not one complaint! The waitress was good, provided great information and made suggestions. The portions and prices were decent. I would recommend for a group, neat atmosphere, good food and drink!

Closed suddenly with only a sign on the door saying CONSTRUCTION TIL DEC 1. There had been some health dept citations and other issues. Had been a good local eatery so hope it reopens.

Been here twice now, both times for a couple pints. Love the beers and love the place. Haven't had the food yet so I couldn't give 5 stars...

Just like the name says, there's so many beer choices to pick from. Make sure to ask your waiter. We had the nachos and they were very delicious. Good to share. The outside of this place looks like the place is going to be small, but it's actually very big inside! Would return. The onion rings are the size of... More

The crowds have decreased here recently, so it's been easy to walk in to a table when there are waits at the other restaurants. The service is somewhat friendly, but doesn't seem as attentive as it used to be. The food has been hit and miss. I recently ordered pizza for the first time and really enjoyed it. They have...

We've been here a few times and it has gotten progressively worse. We tried to stop by on Sunday, 3 small groups were waiting, at least 6 tables were open and 5 waitresses were standing around talking...for 20 minutes. They offered no explanation. We had to leave.

Brews has a new menu with almost al acart pricing. The Reuben comes with nothing but the sandwich. Fries and cole slaw are extra. Quesadilla only, salsa and sour cream are $3. The prices seem to be the same as they were before the menu change. I will stop eating here until the change their shoddy performance.

Sorry to upset a loyal customer but this has been our practice for over a year now, not unlike many other restaurants, we prefer to let our customers choose their sides. More

Stopped here with my son and his college roommate. The food was fine (I had a burger and they both had wraps) and the service was good but neither was special (probably normal for a small college town). I would definitely go again to try out more of the menu but I would probably try other local spots first.

Three of us had an early lunch here on a Saturday. Service was good, if a little slow, even though the restaurant was not full. The Asian wrap was outstanding, as were our other choices. Cute place on the Main Street in town.

Brews is a Granville icon. One of the first major restaurants on the village's main street. Due to increasing popularity, It has expanded three times in the last 20 years. Its selection of beer put it on the map and it does offer a reasonable, tasty menu. However the one thing that is either hit or miss is its service.... More
