Gastro Pub
Where Locally Crafted Beer Meets Fresh Artisan Food! Our menu showcases some of the most creative uses of not only beer, but elements of the entire brewing process. From cooking with spent grains, making reductions from young beer, and creating braises & sauces from our many brewed-on-site adventure beers, we use it wherever we are able! Our pier location, directly on Toronto’s waterfront, provides an unparalleled 270 degree view of Lake Ontario. Centrally situated in the Harbourfront neighborhood, we offer the convenience of being a short walk from all the cities top attractions, including the Rogers Centre, CN Tower, Metro Toronto Convention Centre and Air Canada Centre, as well as its vibrant Financial, Entertainment and Theatre districts. Our 14,000 square foot facility offers an on-site craft micro brewery, impressive patios, flexible audio visual systems, an authentic wood burning oven, open kitchen, retail beer store and an experienced culinary team.

Great place and lots of great food and beverage options. Staff were fun and engaging. We Enjoyed the fact it was Canada music week. The performance was VERY loud. Speaker right on top of us. We finished dinner and bailed during performance as we couldn’t chat at all.

Although the food was good the service was terrible. The drinks took forever and the meals even longer. The pizzas arrived 10 minutes before my wife’s chicken did. The waiter seemed to be totally stressed and kept blaming the kitchen. We talked to a manager and expressed our concerns. I thought they would have credited at least something but nothing was done.

It will be a while before I go back.

Food was really incredible and definitely awesome value- the brisket is UNREAL.
Our server was good at checking back in with us to make sure we had everything but she almost seemed to be annoyed that she was training someone. Other then that I will definitely be back!

Great pre-Jays game dinner spot. Enjoyed spinach dip with garlic knots which were a great change over usual boring nacho chips. Mains if brisket burger and fish tacos. Both very good, great presentation and good portion sizes. Sat on upper level table for 2. Tried a few beers and all were good. Definitely plan to return.

I LOVE the location, the food and the ambiance. You don’t even have to like beer to eat here. I’ve been bringing friends to this restaurant for a few years now and most people are surprised how awesome this place is. We got lucky and they had the upper level open when we were here for lunch this past week.

It’s also a great place to go and people watch. It overlooks Lake Ontario.

Excellent service, wonderful food, drink selection is all from their own brewery so if you're looking to grab a Guinness, you're SOL. Their own beers are amazing (partial to boneshaker myself) and the pretzels are to die for. Fare is standard pub fare for the most part, and priced pretty standard for a Toronto restaurant, but it's excellent. I also liked the ambiance. Any restaurant that doesn't play trap/reggaeton infuse RnB Top 40 trash is OK with me. I was able to understand the conversations with my friend I brought with me. Either way, outstanding experience. You gotta eat/drink here.

Leafs and raptors both playing in the playoffs, so you expect a bit of noise which totally cool. Food was great came out quick and even with a pretty full house. Waiter was great and came over at the right times to check on us. Been here a number of times and it's things like this that keep us coming back

Fun place to have a meal, with above average food (particularly the brisket and ribs). Skip the appetizers (derivative). Not a great value, but it’s in a good tourist spot. Beer is solid, as you would expect.

No real complaints but our waiter was acting like he was on speed. Mind you, thats not totally a complaint. At least he was friendly and trying to make it fun. Sometimes you just want to take it easy and not be entertained constantly.

I ordered the chicken curry. The chicken was dry to the point of some of the chicken just being hard leather type pieces. The majority of the curry included red peppers and a few pieces of onion and sprouts. Quality very poor. I sent it back and the waitress offered to get something else but it was too late for us. The item was taken off the bill obviously, no apology not ‘here’s a drink on us’ or a manager visit. Pretty disappointed overall.

The atmosphere was friendly & relaxed. We were seated near the fireplace by a window with a view of the lake. My salad with several vegetables, quinoa, herb garlic dressing and grilled chicken was lovely, & my friend enjoyed her butternut squash ravioli. The server was delightful and did not rush us. We will definitely go there again.

Our seating location in the upper balcony was very good. Our server, although new (by his admission), was attentive and amiable. The brussel sprout appetizer was not hot but was delicious. We had them on a previous visit and they were excellent, hot and crispy. The entrees were good. We have been here several times, lunch or dinner, and have enjoyed ourselves each time. We recently moved to the area and this will be one of our go to restaurants.

All four of us enjoyed our pre Leaf game dinner. My chicken schnitzel was delicious, came with fingerling potatoes and deep fried capers. I asked them to hold the rapini!

Had a nice flight if beer containing 4 x 5oz samples and finished it off with a 20oz nut brown ale.

Everything was delicious.

This was our second visit and we will be back again.
