    Service was appalling. Twenty minutes wait initially for 2 glasses of beer, after ordering. Food ok, batter on fish very stodgy. Had to chase up further beer order, after another 15 minute no show.

    We moved to the Bier Market as it was better spaced and more comfortable. Both share the same building, kitchen and washrooms. Would definitely return. Delicious food, generous portions and cold beer. Numerous TVs playing current sporting events.

    We were celebrating a 60th birthday, also a 28yr anniversary when we met at that same address under a different resturant name. What a pleasant evening. We ordered calamari, pizza, soup, tuna bowl and Snitzel. A variety of sharing, and enjoyed every bite. Cocktail and beers were fabulous. Our service was outstanding and the food came out delicious and hot. Love the evening and experience of this restaurant.

    Beer was good and well priced. Recommend trying their flights, where you get to choose 4 of any of their originals. It did however take a while to be brought what we ordered, and in fact I ordered a beer that I didn’t end up getting, even though it wasn’t a very busy Friday night.

    Overall a fine experience. Be aware that Sunday - Wednesday the kitchen closes at 9pm which we did not know so we were unable to order dinner. Server did apologize since she got busy and didn't have time to tell us but still very disappointed considering it was a later reservation and wasn't too busy. Beer was good, we did get pretzels before the kitchen closed and they were also good. Not sure I'll be returning.

    If you're in the alley request to not be by the HVAC system, its seriously so loud! It kinda ruins the ambiance. The food is typical modern bar food, nothing too fancy, but still palatable. Server was amazing and answered all questions quickly.

    The service was friendly without being overbearing. Our server could have been more knowledgeable about the beer, but we enjoyed everything we ordered. We ordered the poutine which we didn't enjoy, and they quickly replaced it and took it off our bill. The patio had a nice ambience, we will definitely be back.

    The experience overall was fine. It’s more of a suggestion to remind servers to ensure cutlery is left on the tables. We had ordered a small app and sat there waiting for about 10 minutes before a server walked by for us to ask for cutlery. Another time who was behind us too, had to wait and ask once they received their food.

    We waited 15 minutes for a server to come to our table to take our drink order. When the beers arrived, one had grime floating in the pint glass. We planned on staying for a full meal but left after a very disappointing nacho appetizer.

    Probably the best craft beers in Toronto. We tried several ones and the Mandelbaum and Thunder Gun were the most celebrated ones. The food was great (Brewhouse Burger + Cheescake), it was served in no time and the server was super friendly. The back patio at night is the place to be.
