The new weekday bartender seemed a bit distracted. Not as attentive as Todd, Melissa, Michelle, Jesse, etc.
Food was slow to arrive today.

Overall, Beertown is one of my favourites. The quality of ingredients is outstanding and the taste of the food in every dish is out of this world. Would recommend to a friend. Can be louder at times due to how busy they are, and hard to hear your own conversation. It is generally a dark lit place.

Food was really good but it took too long and when we did receive it was cold. The manager was very gracious and offered to cover our meal since he had received other complaints about cold food as well. Maybe it was just a bad day. It was too bad because we had heard good things about Beertown.

We arrived on time for our reservation, but despite the restaurant being nearly empty, we were seated directly beside what appeared to be a large corporate event. It was difficult to dine and socialize and handle a toddler, within arm's reach of a bustling standing crowd. The service was quick, and the meal was tasty, but delivered luke-warm.

It was Father's Day, and turns out they get backed up on occasions like that. Wings were great appy which was important as mains took over an hour. Avocado flat bread was "good" I have steak and Brie sandwich, very good but isn't big. Kids meal had to go back due to being "very hard" new one came out asap and was then " nice and soft" I'd have given service a 1 for being so slow and a 5 because she was so sweet and apologetic so I settled on a 3. First blip ever at beer town so long story short I highly recommend

Inexpensive food at the premium location in Waterloo. Not far from the hotel where I stayed and that was the main reason to make a reservation at this place. Food is decent; the beer is not, but I came to eat so - who cares.

This was a great place to meet for lunch. Unfortunately, at the moment, the parking and access is a bit compromised because of all the construction nearby (parking lot included). However, it was worth the effort to come. Fast service, delicious food and an excellent selection of craft beers!

Our second trip to Beertown this year and once again a great time! Extensive range of beers - naturally - but the food is fantastic too! I just can't go past the brisket platter - phenomenal both times - and the rest of the group loved everything they ordered. Servers are polite and know what they are doing - thoroughly recommend Beertown for any occasion!

I ate here with some family for my birthday. I am gluten free and when my mom had asked if it was possible to get the birthday dessert gluten free the waitress had said that they didn't actually have gluten free dessert options. However after the waitress came back from the kitchen she had said that the chef was going to make me one anyway!
I didn't know this until she brought me the birthday brownie, and it was delicious! So impressed with the chef and the waitress. I would definitely come back again.

Enjoyed a very nice lunch with my friend at Beertown.
It was very noisy, and a times a little bit difficult to hear each other.
We wondered if the music could have been turned down a bit?

Really happy with this restaurant choice, food was great, lots of varieties of beer. Busy night for the staff, but was impressed when we were bought a round the house from the manager when he came by to apologize for the delay. Will definitely come back next time I'm in town.
