location with views of the city. Our 2 floors offer potential for a great
bar night or the ability to accommodate large parties or events. In
summer we have a great patio that can accommodate close to 100.
Our menu is a blend of traditional French recipes with our unique
twist as well as Canadian comfort foods.3Brwers is a great place for
lunch, meeting friends after work or any other occasion.

Our wedding anniversary! W we’re put at a a table with a noisy crowd, it took forever to get service, food was raw! I clearly made a note saying it was our wedding anniversary! I’m a chef/restaurant owner and I would never have my customers to be in a situation like we were! Never again at this place

Great patio. The beer was good and the food was decent. The waiter took a little long but not terrible.

Although the place wasn’t very busy at it took over 10 minutes for a server to come over to at least take our drink order and introduce themselves.

I like that the patio is protected by a large overhang of the building's upper storeys above. The configuration allows social distancing which is especially important these days.

Excellent service but the food not so good !!

DO NOT order the Santa Fe salad one of the worst salad I ever had in a restaurant! Almost ended up at the clinic ... The salad was wilted and tasted funny... not even sure the chicken was good/fresh !

Had a good lunch at 3B. Bacon cheeseburger with Mac n cheese was quite tasty but a bit dry. Service terribly slow despite 45 minute lunch guarantee.

Great service. Beer is tasty - lots of selection and sizes (which is nice) We both had the burgers but they were under seasoned. Too bad - handmade patty, bun was a good choice, and fries were hot. Please season your burgers, it's important.

Very noisy environment. Hard to hold a conversation without people repeating themselves. The server had too many tables to attend too. Waited about 10 minutes before we were acknowledged. The bruschetta in the jar was too cold it should be at least room temperature. The pulled pork quesadilla was very good.

Food was excellent, prices were fair. We were a group of 5 women on a departmental outing from work. Our server was inattentive to our table; we had shown her our receipt for our Escape Room for that day and asked about the 15% discount advertised. She informed me that it would be applied to our order.

As we had another outing, we were unable to order another round of drinks before heading out as our server was nowhere to be seen. This was often the case. When she did come by, we asked for the bill which she brought over. I realized the discount was not applied, but didn't want to risk being late for our next outing and paid the bill.

We did arrive during the lunch rush, so the business was understandable. However, we stayed much later after the lunch rush when the establishment was virtually empty compared to how it was moments prior. This did not have any impact on our server and the attentiveness our table received.

We will all likely return again as the food was great and there was a nice selection of cocktails and mixed drinks. It is also walking distance to our place of employment, which is a huge plus.

Staff are always excellent. We were are large group meeting up after work. It was very busy but you didn’t feel like the server was rushed. It’s very clean. Food was excellent. I really appreciate that they allow for online reservations for groups of 10. It definitely makes choosing a place to go easy:)
