LOVED this place! We had such a great dinner before a Toronto Raptors Game. Our service was excellent and our waitress even surprised us with fun drinks! 10/10 would recommend! We had the Maverick Burger and their Happy Hour Specials! Yum.

We had an amazing time as always at Northern Maverick. This particular day was to celebrate my birthday and our server brought out the cake, then had the kitchen cut it into slices. It was overall just an amazing night. The food was delicious and the beer you can't go wrong... There is something for everyone.

Small Holiday Party... Asked to have a sign waiting for us at the table to greet my invited guests and the staff did an amazing job with it. Our server was friendly, knowledgeable, and fun. Beer is great, food was great, and the room is a really cool space. Thanks Northern Maverick!

I was there for a business dinner. Atmosphere was vibrant, server was excellent and the noise level was acceptable allowing us to have a very good conversation. On the server’s recommendation we ordered the turduckin burger which was excellent. Overall thoroughly enjoyed our dinner & meeting.

This could have been an excellent experience if:
1. The food [that should have been hot] had arrived hot and not lukewarm;
2. I didn't have to alert a staff-member that over half of the stalls in the ladies' washroom had no toilet-paper whatsoever. Thankfully, that was promptly rectified. (The washroom was otherwise quite nice.)

In other respects: The food was tasty, attractive, and the portions were quite generous; and the service was friendly, obliging, and reasonably efficient.

Service was very attentive, welcoming and caring. We spoke to a few staff members and they all were smiling, happy and solicitous. Food was amazing and we both had special dietary requirements. We were very pleasantly surprised and the happy hour deals were quite good.

We found the dining experience to be all around lacking. The service was inattentive while at the same time a bit rushed even through the restaurant was very quiet. The food quality and taste were mediocre. The room is lovely and would be a good fit for friends looking to get together if not for the poor service and food quality.
Drinks were lovely!!

My friends arrived on time for our reservation but there were people already seated at our reservation table. When asked to relocate, the group would not move from our table (probably because of the World Cup broadcast), so we were then directed to a patio table which was less comfortable as the sun was directly on us with no shade available. My reservation was for the summerlicious event but we were not given summerlicious menus, so we asked for them and ordered drinks to wait. Our 4 beers took almost 20mins to arrive with no summerlicious menus in sight. At this point we had decided we weren't going to eat and waved the waitress over to settle up. We explained we had made a reservation, lost our table, and then had to wait so long for some service. She handled this very well (which is the only reason why this review isn't all poor) and ended up clearing the tab for us so we didn't have to worry about the beers. All in all, I think the seating staff could have made a better effort at moving people who aren't where they're supposed to be. Not sure if I'd trek all the way to go back again.

It was alright. They are situated in a great location with a lot of space. They have their own brewery. The beers are good. The food was alright. The menu for the Summerlicious could have been more inventive.

Denise was awesome. Great service - amazing food (as always). A new favourite spot of ours. Only concern was the fact that I received a note saying I missed my reservation, so perhaps the hosts need a brush up on that process.

We were looking forward to trying this new place near the Factory theatre. Room is very large with modern look. However acoustics are poor & noise level made it impossible to hear.
Moved Tables twice to try & find a better spot, but made no difference.
Food was mediocre. Young crowd. Has a nice patio which will be good in summer

This was the first time we had come here. Katie was our server and she was amazing! She made it feel like we had known her forever and she was just one of the girls. They also had a DJ that played everything from old school to hip hop to reggae to backstreet boys! I had the shepherds pie and it was delicious! It does take 20-25 mins to cook so expect the wait and have a drink! Katie suggest the Strawberry fields drink as I was looking for something on the fruity side. My girls and I had a great time here and would totally come back again.

Nice friendly staff, but our waitress was so busy that we rarely saw her or had a hard time flagging her to order food & drinks!
Food was very tasty and good quality and priced fairly for a nice place like this brewery Downtown. Had a fantastic time watching all the Toronto major sports teams play!
