Don’t let the name fool you, this unique eatery boasts more than just a wine list distinguished by a Wine Spectator award.
Designated a Feast Ontario restaurant for its’ commitment to sustainable and organic regional fare, Bruce also serves up the best wood-fired Neapolitan style pizza north of the GTA. Add an impressive roster of independent Canadian musicians playing Fridays and you’ve got the vibe!
A funky eclectic design houses 25 cozy seats surrounding the open kitchen and another 40 in a loft-inspired space which includes a communal harvest table.
Once a tiny wine bar serving small plates three nights/week, Bruce has come into its’ own as a full-scale restaurant offering seasonally focused lunch, dinner and take-away menus daily, as well as catering for private parties and large events.
Feed your curiosity!

Second visit to this restaurant
Unique decor. We were next to the kitchen downstairs. Great service. Very good wine list.
The food was delicious. Especially the pizza! It was so good we took one to go for breakfast.

We have been to the Wine Bar a few times. The food, the service, the ambience and the wine list are all amazing. The place has such a wonderful vibe. We often go with a larger group and so the communal table is a favourite.

Recommended by a friend, we were visiting Blue Mountain for a few days of skiing on our wedding anniversary. We made reservations, and we were promptly seated. The cheese appetizer was amazing, main course consisting of the braised beef was superb. I had the special, which was walleye and veggies. It was very good, but must say my wife’s braised beef was just a cut above. Great atmosphere, great service, we should have gone back a second night to try more dishes on the menu because of course, the other restaurant paled in comparison. Highly recommend the Bruce Wine Bar.

Amazing food, service as always... The band was aweful and irritating... and I'm a big music
fan with a wide range of musical tastes.
Fortunately you only book them twice a year and I just need to avoid those nights.
Looking forward to my next visit.
