First visit for Father’s Day. We were seated right away which was fantastic.

It was the little things that made the experience just average. No cutlery, had to ask twice, never came by to refill water, bill took forever and we ordered a dish with our dinner to go and waiting another 5 mins after paying the bill to get that.

Our burgers were dry, but the sauces were nice.

Would we go back? Possibly. But I wouldn’t recommend it based on today.

Arrived at the bar on time for our reservation. We were immediately seated by (we think) the owner. The owner started out serving us and service was great. We then were traded off for another server... not so great. She forgot drinks a few times and walked away before we were done asking questions.

We stopped in on our way from
Toronto to Niagara Falls we didn’t know what to expect but were so surprised and impressed! Our food, service and drinks were all above and beyond any expectations. We wished we lived closer to this restaurant as we would for sure return! Attention to detail was also noted, as it wasn’t just delicious but the presentation of the food was superb and the drinks, even the beer. Two in our party of seven order two different beers, the beers were served in the breweries glass and placed on the coaster of the brewery, those details did not go unnoticed!

1st time going to BeerTown and will definitely be back. My only concern was when I made my reservation they asked about regular seating or bar height... I entered regular (cause I was bringing 2 kids) but the regular seating was still quite high, I assumed we’d be at regular table height or booth. The kids made out fine just thought maybe there should be a spot to add # kids attending etc... but besides that we were very impressed with everything. Staff was super friendly and food was amazing!! Even the kids food was delicious and not the standard cardboard tasting most places offer :)

I was finally able to check out Beertown for the first time since it opened in Burlington and was more than pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere was great, the place itself is really well laid out, very comfortable with lots of windows bringing the outdoors inside.
Great menu with an excellent variety of beer on tap and in bottles, as well as paddle samplers. The food was great and the service was excellent. The only downside is the wait time on Friday and Saturday nights, when reservations cannot be made.
Overall highly recommended (if you can get in!).

wE FOUND THE MUSIC SO LOUD THAT HAVING A REGULAR CONVERSATION FOR A FAMILY DAY DINNER WAS DIFFICULT.

THE SERVICE WAS EXCELLENT AS WELL AS THE FOOD.

ON THIS PARTICULAR DAY THERE WERE MANY FAMILIES SOME WITH SMALL CHILDREN. A WATCHFUL EYE OF THE MANAGER MIGHT HAVE PICKED OFF THAT THEY WERE KILLING US WITH KINDNESS WITH THE MUSIC. SHAME.

Food was generally tasty. The only knock was the food (beef brisket) was not hot. It was at room temperature bordering cold. I am overlooking this flaw once by saying that I would recommend to friends.

When we arrived the hostess was aware of our reservation but no table had been saved for us and we waited close to 15 minutes to get a table, although there seemed to be several available. There was little to no concern that a table was not available and little effort was made to seat us or offer us a place to wait other than standing in the entrance. Other diners arriving without reservations were given beepers and sent further into the restaurant to wait.

The table was small and a booth would have been more comfortable. Because they serve boards with beer glasses on them, the space was very small for dinner plates and the boards had to be removed. We were constantly jostled by wait staff moving around our table to serve others as we were in the middle of an area that was crowded with tables.

The noise level was so high that we had to speak very loudly to hear each other converse. One of our party has hearing aids and was unable to distinguish our conversation from the loud din of the other patrons.

The food was tasty and portions were fairly large. However we would not go back as other restaurants offer similar menus with less noise and friendlier environment.

The server was increadible, very attentive and so friendly. The fish tacos were amazing, really great haddock and sauces on the side. Great beer recommendations, and the ceaser was delish. Only downside was the nachos didn't have a good amount of toppings, defiantly could have used more because what was there was Delish!

When we first got in they kind of forgot about us, we contacted someone to order drinks, after that our server came over and apologized about not seeing us, and actually gave us our first drinks for free. After that the service was very good. My husband and kids all had burgers and said they were the best ever had. Good experience, glad we finally got in, had tried a couple other times and it was very busy

We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at Beertown. We ordered the 3 mini tacos appetizer, brisket platter and pad thai with shrimp. The food was excellent. The food was served in a timely manner. We have eaten here before and I must say that the staff is very good here. They know the menu very well, can advise diners about the food and are knowledgeable about what beers are offered. Our server checked with us several times to make sure we didn’t need anything else, which we appreciated.

Good food and some decent beer options. Prices are a bit high and there isn’t much attention given from servers. It took a long time just to get a second beer, which isn’t ideal for a place called Beertown....

The food was great as always. The ambiance was also fun! However, the service was lacking. The server never once came by to check on our drinks or food. The group of 8 had to wave her down multiple times after our drinks sat empty for a minimum of 15 minutes.

Every time one person had asked for something the server quickly sped off before asking the rest of the table if anything else was needed. Quite frustrating for a first visit for most of the table.

On top of that, when the meals came out, only 7 of the 8 arrived at the table. After waiting 10 minutes to see if the last meal was coming, we had to approach another server to let them know one meal was missing. A manager came over asking what the person had ordered because they had no idea. Once again the server didn’t come back to on check on that missed meal. Although, the meal was compted, we would have rather of had the person eat their meal with the rest of the table.

The food was great. My wife and I both had the Beef Brisket Burger. Awesome. HUGE beer list. Really enjoyed what I had (first time that I'd tried Waterloo Dark. Had two :) While a little pricey, Beertown Burlington also has great service: attentive, but never rushing you. And understand that we live about an hour away and will make this one of our regular places. Well done, "Beerlington"!
