Music was a little to loud for visiting and unfortunately there was a lot of flys and little bugs that evening. Server was kind enough to open garage doors to see if they would go out.

Went to the Elora Brewing Company for Sunday dinner with extended family. Had a reservation through OpenTable and we were seated immediately. The restaurant has a great farm to table menu and also have a wide range of beer brewed on site. Everyone in our party thoroughly enjoyed our meals and look forward to returning soon.

It seemed to take along time to have our order taken, and food to come out. The negative was that the area above me was dripping and by the time we left my back was very damp and uncomfortable. We really enjoyed the food.

Atmosphere was cool. We made a reservation and waited about 10 mins for them to clear a table. A lot of flies buzzing around, but the front garage doors were closed because it was so hot. Limited menu. I didn't realize the toppings on the burgers were at extra cost, and didn't realize they didn't have regular condiments. They make their own ketchup, which was ok. And no mustard, or mayo for the burger, so it was pretty plain. Also they make their own pop, which was just ok. They were out of their own made iced tea. Not a large place overall & would recommend reservations ahead. Had to wave server over for another drink order.

Really enjoyed the ambiance and decor. Staff were very friendly and efficient. Our group of 4 all enjoyed our food. We each had an appetizer and meal. Fellows tried one of the Brewery beers and quite enjoyed it. They each bought 4 bottles to take home. They typically find beer at some of the small independent breweries are not always so good. Maybe a little too strong.Myself and my friend had a glass of white wine, we both enjoyed our selection.

The only suggestion I would make is to have 1 more salad, entee and dessert offering, particularly if a little more healthy selection.

Would be great if they could serve a homemade thin crusted pizza. Basic tomato and cheese toppings with specialized toppings. Baked garlic, carmelized onions, artichokes etc... specialty items. Would fit in well with the atmosphere.

I was disappointed that the dinner menu was almost all sandwiches and fries. They had one special (pork tenderloin) that was not a sandwich, but not caring for pork tenderloin, it was not an option for me. It was very expensive. In the end I had to order something that I was not excited about, it costed quite a bit of money, and it was not that good. I want to love this place, but the food is lacking.

Great meal. Nice server. The only fault was the meal was a bit slow at a time when it didn’t appear particularly busy. Luckily, we weren’t in a rush. An awesome place to eat in Elora. 👍🏻👍🏻

The restaurant and service was really good. The beer was mostly good. We tasted a few but some of their new ones were not great. The seating was okay but the sun was in my eyes most of the time. Food was really good, but portion sizes were not worth the price. It was good to try but not a place I'll go again.

Menu has changed slightly. My slider bun was stale and very light on meat.
Mussels were great..and the salads were very good.
The brew pub beer is always fantastic!

We just found the service really slow and it took 40 minutes for our food to arrive. Our server was very busy running up and down the stairs. Perhaps you were short staffed?kk

We took my mother-in-law for a casual dinner and were seated upstairs. It was so noisy we couldn't talk to each other - there is no attempt at cushioning the sound. The menu is extremely limited - burgers, fried food and poutine. Yikes. The portions are small......but prices aren't. You know there is something wrong with the menu when the best thing on it is mac' and cheese......Plus we had to remind the waitress to bring our food. The beer was good - definitely won't eat there again without a complete overhaul of the menu and the noise problem. Too bad, as the atmosphere is really conducive to having a good time.

Despite having reservations and seeing several empty tables, we were seated in a terrible location at the top of the stairs (second floor). We had to move the table away from the stairs because it was so close. Later we realized that we were right beside a big (and reasonably noisy) party. It set an unfortunate tone for the evening and we are quickly and left.

Ate lunch here with 2 friends. Ambiance was great but food was not their normal quality. Chicken burgers had very little chicken on them. Waitress brought a little more when we mentioned the burger didn’t have hardly any chicken and she brought a few more thin slices from a breast that we split between 2 people. Quantity on the burger was still probably only 1/4 of a chicken breast after adding the extra meat we asked for. I have eaten here 4-5 other occasions and have not had this issue so I’m hoping it was a one time thing.

First time visit. Went in ahead of reserved date and found them so helpful and welcoming and friendly. Same great attitude when we arrived for our meal. So friendly. Loved how the windows open up in front. We were given a great table and able to visit with friends.

It was Mother’s Day and we were meeting our son’s in laws for lunch. Our kids live on the other side of the world so a bit of a sad day for the mother’s BUT the young staff made us feel welcome and happy. They took a picture for us so we could send to the far away children.

Loved the ketchup. Great meal too and we will be back.

Thanks to all.

Second time in Elora; s second time at EBC. Second time was better than we remembered. The food is very good. Fresh ingredients, everything made in-house. The beer is outstanding! Too bad we can’t find it in Michigan.
We can’t wait to be back next year! 😋
