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.

Our food was amazing, and the atmosphere was great. Was just alittle disappointment as our waiter forgot to order our starter and then kind of seemed to avoid us after that. But otherwise really happy and will go back for sure. Mistakes happen, and I’m sure he felt embarrassed.

The Fried Chicken was amazing (super moist and crispy skin) , also came with a ton of great fries. The atmosphere was really good and we had a great server. We did wait a while for our food since they were so busy, but it was worth the wait. We would go back and have the same exact ting!

Music was a little to loud for visiting and unfortunately there was a lot of flys and little bugs that evening. Server was kind enough to open garage doors to see if they would go out.
