A word from Market Garden Brewery
Market Garden Brewery features a 3,000 square foot "American beer garden", three fireplaces, two indoor bars, and private dining space for up to 400. The brewpub features a modern American pub menu featuring local and organic ingredients sourced primarily from our historic neighbor, the West Side Market, and the wonderful farms that dot our community. This dynamic menu is brought to you by Executive Chef Andrew Bower. Market Garden is home to a 10 barrel brew house that has brewed up a menu of a dozen beers that span the flavor spectrum from easy drinking session lagers to big beasty ipas and porters. Noted brew master Andy Tveekrem, formerly head brewer at Dogfish Head, is at the helm. We also carry an exciting guest beer list highlighting the ever-changing American craft beer scene along with an extensive liquor & cocktail program focused primarily on American whiskies and spirits from the nation's top Micro-distilleries. Hope to see you in Ohio City soon

    I made reservations for my wife and I for a night out. We don't often get to go out due to work and family obligations. I've been to Market Garden a few times and always had a great experience. This time however we were seated and never once did a waiter come to the table. People around is were seated and served, I tried to get the attention of a couple waiters but never got anyone to come over. After waiting 45 mins we just walked out. It's one thing to not notice, it's another to make blatant eye contact and just walk by as I'm trying to wave you down. Don't think I'll be returning here anytime soon.

    I made OpenTable reservation 20 mintues before I showed up. When I got there, a table was reserved. Our waitress was friendly and attentive, but not overbearing. Food was good. Only drawback is parking in the area, but the restaurant does have offer valet parking. Overall good experience.

    We checked this place out for brunch on my daughter's recommendation (with her). She read about it and thought it sounded interesting. The food was fair, at best. Same for the service. It seems like a great place for 20 and 30-somethings to hang out and watch sports on TV. Not for me!

    Pro's: The beer selection is excellent. The pours are not true "pint" glasses, more like 14 oz, but I did sample a few and they were all at the perfect temp and tasted great. Con's: Don't eat here. Maybe my expectations were WAY too high after seeing the prices on the menu. The descriptions sound incredible - a very ambitious, eclectic menu, but the execution was poor. Duck sliders were dry and had a strange flavor. Shrimp tacos were so-so and the fish tacos were bland. I had the bratwurst and pierogies, and the brat was the size of my index finger. Mac n cheese with chorizo and kale was 'meh'. All 8 of us were disappointed - esp me I b/c i picked up the tab! I don't get why the place was packed on a Wed nite - all first time diners?

    Market Garden is a favorite of mine for out of town guests. The beer is some of the best in Cleveland- thoughtful, local and not as heavy or intellectual as many of the breweries nearby. The food is a great take on classic comfort food- with fresh local ingredients and an eye for detail that makes it special. Great prices and even better service! Nothing like the smell of a campfire as hot summer days turn to cool nights. A perfect, relaxing place to take out of town guests who want a taste of real Cleveland-style food and drink.

    We had a great time with about 35- 40 people - our server did an incredible job. Management should have provided us another server, given the size of the group and the fact that just about everyone ordered food and drinks. Our friends made the reservation ahead of time. My only recommendation if you reserve a room for this large a group is to request at least two servers. Otherwise, we had a blast and appreciate their hospitality and hard-work.

    This was our first time to this restaurant - in fact, even though we have been to Cleveland a number of times, we did not even know this area existed. Had brunch here - was absolutely fantastic. Good selection of brunch items. Service was good and the food was excellent. Would definitely recommend this restaurant!

Made out resevations on Opentable, arrived at the Brewery and we were seated right on time. Beer was excellent and the food was excellent too! Great service ! We will be back!

    I took two foreign colleagues to Market Garden, so they could sample a diverse selection of American cuisine - from BBQ to fried chicken, to Polish, German, and Mexican-influenced dishes indicative of the multi-cultural heritage of the city. They loved the food and Market Garden was a great place to give a good impression of the city. The service was great, and though it was a busy Saturday night the kitchen's timing was perfect.

    We took a group of 5 on Mother's day and were hoping to show mom a great night out at a place of her request. We drove nearly 50 minutes to get here, paid $6. for parking on a Sunday, and thankfully were seated right away. The service was terrible. All of us were set to drink multiple rounds and seeing as we could barely flag our server down when needed, we just gave up after our initial order. The food was overpriced and not very good. If going at all, just sit at the bar for drinks and go elsewhere to eat. At least the beer was good.

    We had a group of 7 for Mother's Day Brunch. Waited an unusually long time for our meals to arrive - the server brought us a bag of popcorn to share and said they were backed up in the kitchen. I love their breakfast poutine - which I often order when we go for brunch. Normally it is served with breakfast potatoes - this time it was served on French fries. Might not seem like a big deal - but it was a disappointment. I don't complain or send things back - will just rethink dining there in the future.

    We had a reservation, the restaurant still had open tables upsrairs, but we where seated in the basement area. It was cute, placed our orders and they pretty much forgot about us. Took over an hour to get our food. Then it was cold to top it off. We where told they where busy. Yet the basement dinning was only us at that point, and there where a lot of open table in the main area. They pretty much lost our order.

    Located in Ohio City, Market Garden Brewery is a great stop for dinner, lunch, appetizers, whatever. The atmosphere is pretty "brewery-normal" but the menu is not. The food was fantastic. On a whim, we stopped in for dinner w/ our 8 yr old. Typically we do not take him to a brewery, but they had an opening & we were starving. Its not a GREAT place for kids, but not out of the question. I would take him again w/o concern. They do not have a kids menu but they obliged us by making plain mac n cheese that he said was amazing! I had the adult mac n cheese. It was out of this world. The cheese and noodles were phenomenal but then they add chorizo, shredded sweet potatoes, and kale. I can honestly say it was the BEST mac n cheese I've ever had.

    Excellent selection of craft beers brewed on site, and the server was very knowledgeable about items on the beer list and menu. Very good service, even on a busy St. Patrick's day weekend night. Food seemed slightly overpriced but overall enjoyed it. Noise level was high, but they were playing good blues music which seemed to set the right mood. This place is definitely worth checking out, especially if you are a beer lover.

    Since I don't drink beer or particularly like bar food and typically like to eat healthy, there weren't a lot of choices that appealed to me. I ended up getting the soup of the day which was ok, but too salty in my opinion. To be fair the burger looked delicious and someone with me enjoyed the duck sliders. The cheese board was nice, but it was also about twenty dollars, rather high for lunch. The bar itself was very nice, the employes were very friendly and the service was good. There was live entertainment which was great and I can say that I have never seen that during the day, so another plus! I saw a lot of young kids there and they seemed happy,so good for kids!

    We made reservations based on other reviews-thinking that it would have some more private dining options. This is an establishment for young people I think - the 20-30 crowd- which we are not. We had to fight our way to the table. Then people hung around our table and we were in a corner. The spaghetti squash dish was good as well as the steak-wouldn't recommend the mussels or scotch eggs- not notable. Pricey for what you get and the quality of the food.
