The food takes a bit to arrive because apparently they have a small kitchen, the beer is very good especially if you like ales. Not full 20 oz pints which is always disappointing for the price.

Unfortunately the food was just so-so at the Sunday Southern Brunch. Over easy eggs were cooked hard and biscuits not soft, fluffy and delicious. Music was great.

My order was stone cold and wrong. I asked for over easy eggs and got sunnyside up. There was 3 of us and all of our food was cold. When I brought it to the attention of the waitress she just looked at me like I had 3 heads and asked of 9 would like it take-out. WHAT?! Why would I wanna take it home when It wasn't satisfactory when it came to my table. One of my worst dining experiences. $3 for OJ that tasted like TANG....seriously?!

Hi there, I'm sorry you didn't have a good visit with us. I believe we spoke on the phone later Sunday evening and I reversed the charge for the unsatisfactory brunch on your credit card. I've also spoken to the server that was taking care of you and explained what to do if that situation happens again. My apologies once again and if there is anything further I can do please email me at amy@elorabrewingcompany.ca Thank you, Amy Front of House manager

The EBC was excellent. I took my 87 year old mum and sister there for dinner. We were treated like royalty. Our server was Sarah, and she was so patient with us; we really wanted to take our time and enjoy the experience. The noise level was minimal which was truly a treat, being able to chat amongst ourselves. We were pleasantly surprised to find they had a wine list, mum isn't fond of beer. I had lamb and it came on a creamy base of mashed potatoes, with perfectly cooked carrots and squash. I could not have asked for it to be more perfect. My sister had the blue cheese Mac and Cheese and enjoyed it thoroughly. Unfortunately we had no leftovers to take home as we ate everything! The serving size was just right. We received the bill and had absolutely no regrets. It was a very nice evening out, and would highly recommend EBC for all ages.
Way to go EBC!

Always enjoy a meal at the Elora Brewing Company when we visit the town. Absolutely no complaints except that the menu is a bit limited when you have choosy people with you. Luckily, that's not the case for us most of the time!

Fun brunch spot we were upstairs away from the band, which was fine for me (may have been a little loud if we were on the same floor as the live music). Fried chicken and flapjacks were awesome, I usually go for a savoury breakfast but I thought the pancakes were great. Found it a little pricey but you get a lot of food. Can you add mimosas even though you're a brewery? 2/3 of us love it, 1 thought it was ok.

Entire experience far exceeds mediocrity. Staff helpful and friendly, environment comfortable and welcoming, food is exceptional, and an excellent bar menu. Live music is always a bonus, but the place is a solid win without it.

we love it here! The food is very good and local. The menu changes with the seasons so there is always something new. I love their limited release days and try to stock up on delicious beer every time we're here. I haven't disliked a beer from Elora Brewing, ever! There's something for everyone.

Orzo salad to die for. Every so often they introduce a new salad. This is the best since their version of a cobb. Stick with the appies. Mussels also very good.

So much fun, ok I cheated and brought a super fun couple with us but we sat there for 4 hours with flights of beer and apps and more beer and then mains.... then finished with more beer, warm cookies and finished it off with a ride from over the limit. The food was good but I will pick it apart here a bit for you: the burgers were a bit over cooked and I don’t mean medium well... they were a bit over well done and the chicken supreme was super little, but well cooked, it came with a kale medley that wasn’t my favourite. So I gave them a 4 on food... good but not great... they were sold out of the dessert pizza which made us sad but we decided to then negotiate for just the cookies from the ice cream sandwich... best decision we ever made... wow. The highlight of the night was the crowd, everyone was having a Good time and were all chatting between tables and our server, really all the staff, but our server was perfection, so glad we went. Im not sure if we just drank like sailors or if place is on the pricier side, I didn’t look at prices for anything we ordered... which was a substantial number of items...but with a well deserved large tip our food and drinks surpassed $350
Final tip for this place... skip the homemade “pickle” tray... but order everything else. 😉

I would recommend Elora Brewing Company to a friend - for drinks only. The interior is beautiful and it is one of the better local options for a quant yet lively outing. However, I have been to the restaurant three times now and have tried very hard to enjoy your menu. I am always disappointed in what I order; the quality/taste of the food is lacking. I have sat at the bar multiple times and was made to feel like an inconvenience to the bartenders. Overall, they do not seem happy and are not very friendly to the guests.

As eluded to earlier, your beer is great and you have an awesome venue, but a few changes to the kitchen and bar staff could bring your customer experience up a ton.

A great spot in Elora! I am vegan, so the waitress and chef worked with me to create an off-menu item that I could eat. The food was delicious! Highly recommend the fries with the seasoning on them with the homemade ketchup. I had the sour - it was peach and mango. Sooo good. Will definitely be coming back!

Terrible, inconsiderate service. Sent a private message regarding our experience to their social media account days ago in hopes of getting a response. No acknowledgement at all even though they are actively posting. Brought friends from over an hours drive away and we’re embarrassed by the experience and waste of a long drive.

After spending the weekend in Elora. We wanted to check out the local brew pub. You will not be disappointed. The food was excellence. It’s vey Castro pub, rustic and hearty meals with hipster flare. The beers a great. You can order flights, half pints or full pints. The decor and atmosphere was fabulous. We sat at the bar and chatted with friendly locals and bar staff.

The daily soup was delicious and the toased sourdough bread that accompanied it excellent. We opted for the taco special and they were a disappointment. One of my dinner companions asked and was told by the waitress that the tacos were corn - which they weren't. The fillings were tasty enough, but there was much more taco than filling. ...they were also out of salsa, so served the toasted corn tortilla chips with sour cream only. Waitress disappeared after bringing our bills, even though we had mentioned we were trying to get to a 7:30 performance.
