About Bruce Wine Bar
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.

Bruce Wine Bar Ratings and Reviews
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.
Awesome as always! Bruce Wine Bar never lets us down. Best food and atmosphere in the area!
Best meal in the region.
Great for family dinners after an active day
Casual warm atmosphere
Great local wine bar with great food and added bonus of life music
Since the opening.....I haven't had a bad experience yet! Experienced and friendly staff....super comfortable atmosphere, and great entertainment....
Great service and amazing local ingredients. I'm on a low fat Vegan diet, and the staff whipped up an incredible vegan meal. It had lentils, various winter veg. Very tasty. The pizza I ordered without cheese was good too.
Made online reservation and inquired about vegan options. I was called in excellent time to discuss options. I was given several, with the vegan plate being my choice. WOW it was awesome to say the least. My companions were happy with their meal but also had to try mine as I was raving about it!! Thank you for not making me feel as if I was a pain and offering me a scrumptious dinner!
Unfortunately I was sitting upstairs at a table for approx 12 people. At the beginning we were the only people at this large table. My seat backed onto a bar with someone standing at it, so every time the server walked past my seat got bumped.
Friendly service. Good food.
The Pizza is the best!
The music was good but far too loud. Couldn't talk without shouting.
Bruce Wine Bar was recommended by a friend and we weren't disappointed. Staff was fantastic, food was delicious and ambiance was fun.
Excellent food, always different It's always interesting food.
Always a great dining experience. We had pizza this visit. The best wood fired pizza in the area. Excellent wine selection and knowledgeable servers. Highly recommend this restaurant.
The Bruce is alway outstanding. Local ingredients, seasonal, interesting flavours -- all beautifully presented. An extensive wine list, modestly priced. Our go-to place in the Blue Mountains.
A go-to! Always a great meal. Lovely ambience. Cozy atmosphere.
Fantastic meal and great ambiance!
This place is a hidden gem.. excellent food, world class wine list and live music that is complementary to the experience.
A must eat in ontario
Visited with a vegan friend who raved about the veggie pizza (minus the cheese). I had the braised beef pizza special and we both rolled out of there (we REALLY didn't need to eat the last couple of pieces, but couldn't help it) absolutely delighted. Would definitely return!
Loved it and as usual the Fungji Pizza was outstanding!
Never disappoints - great food, people and space. Easier to get a reservation
What a great place in a small town! This was such a gem that I will recommend to other friends going to the area. Great food, service and good vibes.
Always delicious with great flavour profiles. Great service and ambiance.
The food was exceptional as usual but tonight the atmosphere just didn't measure up.
Our server seemed a bit disinterested.
We make make a point of getting a table at the Bruce whenever we are in town because we love it so much, but were quite disappointed this time unfortunately.
You were sat beside a long table of kids playing musical chairs… At a wine bar?
Perfect place ! Magic atmosphere! Food is fantastic ! Little bit noise .. anyway best place in that region
Definitely not my scene, but the food was unbelievable. 10/10 would recommend
It was a dark and stormy night. Very dark. In fact all of Thornbury was dark what with the power lines down. However the host said our reservation could be transferred to their other restaurant in Collingwood called the Crow, and we got a discount. So we went. Two bands were playing at the crow that night, both the Bruce wine bar band and the Crow band. It was a good show. The food was very good, amazing presentation. My only criticism is the Crow layout; when you are watching the band immediately to the left is the service counter with the bright kitchen lighting. We will go back.
VISITING BLUE MOUNTAIN RESORT FOR FIRST TIME WITH MY WIFE. FRONT DESK AT THE WESTIN TRILLIUM RECOMMEND BRUCE WINE BAR . NOT DISAPPOINTED. PIZZA THIN AND CRISPY WITH HOT SPICEY OLIVES AS A SIDE DISH JUST PERFECT. FRIENDLY STAFF. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOR RELAXING LOW KEY NIGHT OUT.
The food was excellent as always and the service exemplary despite a minor mix-up that slightly delayed dessert. No hardship due to the exellence of the food and the pleasant surroundings. My wife loves the downstairs tables as we can see the kitchen and in particular the wood-fired oven.
We enjoyed the food, the wine and the service. The ambience on the Friday evening we were there was non existent. With a space such a yours, filled to capacity, with live music, seating a party of 2 at a table with 4 other parties of two makes for a solo dining experience. I did ask if we could be seated together(on one side) but that would mess up(my words)the usual seating arrangement .... perhaps a consideration?! We will be back, probably on a Thursday!
I am cleansing right now about not eating specific things. They made me a gorgeous vegan harvest meal. It was delicious. It looked beautiful. Thank you !!
Amazing! Beginning to end. From the service the chef's mind blowing creations, you cant miss. Exceptional wine list with enough depth to go from entry level to pro.
Great place and food for dinner.
One unfortunate comment. The draft beer was not ice cold. Cool but not cold.
Otherwise I love the place
Excellent evening. Open mike with great music. Food also excellent.
Very slow service - 30 minutes before we got a drink! Very limited choice of food.
Had to go for pizza as 3 choices on menu not to my liking - pizza very good.
I will drive any distance to savour those phenomenal pizzas!
PLEASE allow those of us who dine at lunch to sit downstairs where it's cozy and thoroughly entertaining to watch food being prepared.
Upstairs is very chilly (air conditioning) and lacks the ambience of downstairs.
Great wine and delicious pizza. Meal served in less than 15 mins! Very cute spot. :)
One of my favorite spots in the Country. I've travelled from California to Maine and Vancouver to PEI and Bruce Wine Bar still stands tall!
Excellent food, service was great I would recommend this place to anyone. More than you would expect in a small town.
Even thought there was a limited menu due to an off-site special event we once again thoroughly enjoyed dining at the Bruce. Service was a bit slower than usual - I suspect for the same reason. The food was consistently excellent. But it was the little touches that really sets them apart - such as the Riesling jelly with the cheese board.
