Worst bar food in Toronto. Chicken wings were like rocks and barely had chicken on them. Fried chicken was drenched in oil and filled with fat, it was very unpleasant to eat. The food took a long time to come. We ordered a strawberry rhubarb pitched which was delicious but barely had any alcohol, it was mainly filled with Ice.

The service was great but they only had a brunch menu and a dinner menu - nothing in between like a lunch menu. We went at 2pm and wanted a few shareable items but could only order off the brunch menu which which was quite limited. Not sure I’d go back for food ever again

The food was amazing, but the charcuterie table is too expensive for what it has. The value should be $12 and not $24.

Ridiculous that they kicked out my party of 12 after we spent close to $1000. Great atmosphere. Terrible customer service. Would never recommend or go there again unfortunately.

Very slow service. Understandable with larger crowds but waitress would only come around if someone went to bathroom and asked her to stop by table. Every time she did stop she was half walking away before other guests could order. Food took over an hour for a burger and fries.

Front patio is top notch - loud, sure - but the service, beer and street level vibe is great... can't speak to the food, but the beers, IPAs and Lagers are excellent 👌.

Went to Northern Maverick Brewing Co for a bachelor party. I originally booked indoor with hopes of being outdoor; they did not disappoint and accommodated outdoor for us. As we were running very late from other activities, the person who picked up the phone was very polite and understanding with holding our table. The tables were split into two sections as opposed to one long table. To have everyone together at one table, they gave us the option to go back inside and moved with sense of urgency. They made great menu suggestions, checked in regularly, food came out quickly, staff very easy to talk to and personable. As much as the food was good it was the staff that did it for me. Thank you for helping me craft great memories for my best friend before he see’s his wife-to-be walk down the aisle.

NORTHERN MAVERICK is an exceptional downtown Toronto restaurant. Every aspect of our recent visit was great. We will be back again soon for dinner - our latest visit was for brunch.

I went for brunch and was served avocado that had gone off. I complained and the server very quickly brought me a new bowl of avocado, which I appreciated. Overall the food was underwhelming, especially for the price. The server was super nice. And 5 dollar mimosas are great! Good vibe overall but not really a place for foodies.

If you’re going, ask to be seated at the front patio. We were seated on the side which was no where near as nice and there was an awful smell during the entire meal that really killed the ambiance. However service and food itself was quite good and understand the smell was out of the restaurants control, just wish we knew ahead of time to request the front side patio.

Friends and I had a decent time overall. Music was a little loud but that sort of atmosphere was expected. Unfortunately we had to wait half an hour to even get any water to our table, and ordering then took another 15 minutes. Our mains came at a reasonable pace but we waited almost 20-30 minutes to get our oysters. The staff were kind enough to bring us a round of free drinks though. I had the vegan curry, and was a little disappointed that it didn’t come with rice or any proper carb, just two thin pappadums. Not sure what to make of this experience.

Service from start to finish was excellent! We had a very attentive/observant server who noticed one person from our group had a disability. Without us having to ask, they offered help such as having the kitchen cut a meal and offered accessible washroom on main level. It was very much appreciated. We had family who were visiting and this was a great spot to sit out and enjoy brunch. Good food and beer options. Everyone in our group was very happy with their meals and experience.

The staff were really friendly. I made a reservation for 5 people at 8pm but we had to wait for table to open up. It wasn’t too long, like 15-20mins and we totally understand. Most tables only sat four and with covid restrictions they couldn’t just add a chair at end. It did take a few minutes for our server to come to the table but Marcel was excellent. Polite, funny and attentive. Because we had to wait for our table they brought over a complimentary Charcuterie board. They didn’t have to because we weren’t complaining and we weren’t upset or annoyed at all. Their customer service turned a nice first time out since last year to an amazing one. Really made the evening and we had a blast. I’ve read of the other reviews here and the ones they are bad, those people need to go to McDonald’s or another fast food place if they don’t have patience. This isn’t some shabby rundown pub. It’s relaxed and a bit posh. Highly recommend

Decent vibes all around for the outdoor patio, with the TVs and just overall hype. Worlds slowest service, like nice folk but definitely not attentive or any service skill at all.

We got there at 9pm for our reservation and I finally managed to haul down a server at 9.45 to take our drink order....the table beside us who arrived after were already on their entrees. Our actual server came at 9.50 apologizing for the server he was training, that had actually came before him at 9.45….Never saw either of our servers again that evening, even though I asked another staff to bring us our damn server twice! Had to ask for our check from two different staff and that alone took another 30 minutes.

The one star goes to Marcelle (I think it was) who brought my dog a bowl of water, he seemed to be the only attentive staff for us that evening. Please do better maverick.

We had to move once, they didn't wipe the chairs dry so I had to ask them. Then the umbrella in patio almost struck my kids...VERY close call!! luckily my husband was there to stop it.

A storm came and we had to rush inside. Definitely not kid friendly and uptight they didn't even comp us anything, which I thought they would.

Overall, our group had a pleasant experience, staff were friendly, attentive, and even though we were asked to move tables which is no big deal, was handled super politely, and apologetically.

My only criticism, is the Maverick Burger was underwhelming, maybe it's personal taste but for your restaurants Signature burger, that sauce on it needs improvement.
