    Was a good experience. Service by waiter was slow at times even though it was not busy- chatting with staff, on phone..etc..had to catch his eye a couple of times to get another drink.

    Just had severe appetizers and some drinks. The beer is great but I knew that going in. Had the beer dip and pretzels it was like store bought pretzels and the dip tasted just like French onion dip. The poutine was good, the soft pretzels were excellent! The charcuterie board was ok.

    My friends (from high school) and I had a great time catching up. It was for my 32 birthday celebration but honestly it was to celebrate all of our birthdays. The food was great and the service was quick. We had reservations for 12pm and while some of my guest were late, our server accommodation to us was great! She was friendly and patient. Would definitely come here again. It’s great to know they can book up to 12 people for reservation online (very easy, and convenient).

    The atmosphere was nice and staff friendly, our server was attentive and polite. The food ranged from OK to excellent. I had the fish and chips and unfortunately it was on the high side of greasy and I didn’t care for the coleslaw so my dish was just OK however my daughter had the rainbow trout and she enjoyed it, she said it was rich and just the right amount for her. Her partner had the brined 1/2 chicken with roasted potatoes and he said it was the best chicken he’s ever had and that’s saying something considering he’s a trained cook. I would definitely go back and next time try the chicken. Overall it was a good experience and I would recommend this restaurant.

    Steam Whistle BiergärtenResponded on December 6, 2022Thank you for the detailed review, it is always really helpful to hear where we can improve as well as where we impressed. We are lucky to have the attentive and friendly staff that we do so thank you for noting that - we will be sure to pass the message along to Nathan! We hope to see you back again soon to try the 1/2 chicken. Prost!

    Our waitress was terrible. She was more concerned about who was looking at her then serving. We waiting a long time (too long) for a Caesar salad. Until we spoke with Thea agent ( who was amazing) we didn’t get any service at all. Although we were served drinks by an amazing bar team. The waitress has to go. She walked around the place as if she was the highlight of the place. Terrible waitressing skills.

    Awesome burger, it was difficult to chose between the fish and chips. Coolest place in town. It is a must stop everytime I drop in Toronto. The beer is my reference to what a pilsener should be. Greetings from QC city. (At least, I can still enjoy your beer from my local convenience store!)

    Open table reservation - identified ourselves on arrival Awesome Servers Food arrived cold; sent it back; came back hot Spartan ambiance - fun, casual place Claimed we were a “no show” on Open Table resulting in Open Table notification; not impressed with hassle and having to prove presence Cold food + hassle = improvement needed
