About the restaurant
Please note: if your desired reservation time is not available, we hold lots of space for walk-ins.

We started Nonsuch to give back to our home, help grow our culture, and make Manitoba proud. We're proud to offer shareable plates with a focus on local ingredients as well as our award winning craft beer brewed in-house, just steps away from our dining room.

We make our beer. We make our food. But we founded Nonsuch to make your special moments. To appreciate your entire experience. From quiet, intimate gatherings to the grandest of celebrations, it's our honour to be in the heart of your moments.

About the restaurant
EXCITING. FLAVOURFUL. SHARED.

The Merchant Kitchen is an idea conceptualized by travel and adventure. Honouring the traditional ingredients, flavours, and techniques of Asia and Latin America, while incorporating the freshest local ingredients possible is our mantra.

Exploring cities and towns along the equator, tasting their food carts, and visiting the local markets have allowed us to bring that to the table an experience that enables guests to escape routine and enjoy flavours with friends and family.

Beautiful interior. The view of the old pumps was a great background for lunch. I didn't realize how big the pumps were! Menu was inclusive. We had someone who was vegetarian and someone who was gluten free. Both were easily accomodated. The server was friendly. Everyone enjoyed their food. The XL perogy was the standout item of the meal (both the vegetarian version and the version with meat).

The roasted carrots were delicious as was the short rib ragu. The lavender lemonade was very refreshing. It was very comfortable sitting at the outdoor patio.

About the restaurant
Our one-of-a-kind Canadian themed sports bar & grill has an extensive menu of appetizers, entrees, drinks and amazing specials every night of the week. You’ll note our Canadian decor starts right when you walk up to our huge Inukshuk at our doors and continues throughout the restaurant in a “cheeky” Canadian fashion. We promise, when you come to The Canadian Brewhouse, you’ll instantly feel at home, because our house is your house…only we have way more TVs! You won’t find a better selection of screens anywhere for the sports you love! We even provide tabletop speakers for those nights when multiple sports and teams are playing.

Had a good dinner! I had the Ribeye special and she had chicken sliders and spinach dip. Courtney was a great server. My only complaint would be that her dinner was served and Courtney had to go looking for mine as they didn’t bring out mine. Outside of that, was the best experience we’ve had in a year.
