Convenient place for beer and good food in Elora, open later than most alternatives.

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!
Great atmosphere.

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! 😋

I had a reservation to take my 86 year old mother out for dinner. They gave us the one and only table with high stools. Needless to say I had to point out them that my mother is elderly and would require a seat which would allow her to have her back supported and her feet on the ground. They said they would get us another table. But they asked for our drink orders and did not change our table. Received our drinks and then were neglected. We almost finished our drinks and then they asked for our food order, but no accommodations for a new table. Since they obviously were not going to accommodate my mother (even though they gave tables with regular seating to younger patrons that came after us.). So I snagged another waitress who helped us out. When our food finally arrived, my salad barely had any dressing and they brought the wrong side dish. My mother ended up having an allergic reaction to a spice in the dressing and could not eat it. No one came to check on our meal until we were almost finished. They brought the correct side dish, but my mom had no substitute for her meal and ended up eating when we got home.
I have been before for a beer and some nibbles....with my Mom. Would go again for drinks and music but will go to one of the other fine restaurants around for dinner. And if I take my Mom again, I will make a note in the reservation of her age.
Good beer! Can’t say the same about the food and service.

We went for my husbands birthday, wrote that on the reservation when I made it so it was known. Nothing was done to recognize it was his birthday. One of our parties meals was not ordered by the waitress (she forgot) and he had to wait while they scrambled and tried to get his meal as all of ours had been delivered. The food was ok but not great. The fries were not edible as they had so much salt on them. There's no ability to get a better look at the distillery all and all it was just a big let down. Disappointed that we went on his birthday when it should have been a coffee/beer stop only.

Birthday dinner. Was good, frontline staff rarely seems enthused to help, always very sticky to their wait times and rules, never feel like they truely want to help you. Only way I could ever get a table is to use Open Table. Walk in or call always would get me a “sorry were too busy”. However, the service and attitude from the waiters are great.

We went for the concert, Shred Kelly. Great performance venue! The building has a lot of character and there were plenty of servers on so we didn't have to wait at all. The beer was delicious and the music amazing.
Also - a nice all ages and friendly crowd.

We (6 of us)were here for dinner and live music. The food was outstanding, with a feature of braised short ribs that was melt-in-your-mouth delicious. The atmosphere is rustic and comfortable. It was a little loud during dinner as the band did soundcheck but otherwise fine.
We came back the next day for lunch with a large group (13) and the service and food were again excellent

The food, the ambiance and of course the beer were all excellent as always. We received exceptional service from both Karly and Shannon. We're usually well looked after by most of the staff whenever we come in but when Karly and Shannon are there, especially if they're working together, the service is beyond compare. Thank you all for a great evening.

Love this place, often will drive just over an hour to get here. Love the service people are always friendly and attentive. Had brunch here a year ago and was fabulous, This one was ok, but not as good and it’s been in the past, or as good as the normal lunch options.
