    Our server was excellent, however it was clear the kitchen was understaffed as the food took forever to show up. Otherwise can't fault the experience, just allow yourself extra time for your food to arrive.

    Great beers. Would give a better review except our pizza came without sauce, so it was basically cheese bread. Server was nice but overwhelmed as it appeared she had almost all of the tables. Would recommend regardless as these were the best craft we had on our visit

    Smash burger was on point. The sauce was very flavorful. Fries were nice and hot and just crispy enough. And the beer was of course the star of the sitting.

    Went for a date night. The music was so loud that conversation was impossible. The food limited was extremely limited. As a brewpub, I expected only their products. The non beer menu was, unfortunately, also limited.

    - Staff was terrific, from greeter, wait staff to bottle shop counter. - Food… limited menu, but it is a tasting room… we had pizza and the deep dish style is a welcome option to the thin crust most are serving… looking at others around us the burger and salads looked very good as well. - Beer - big selection, GLB has a ton of their beers on tap, something for everyone, plus they have options for 16oz or full 20oz glasses - Ambience - a little sterile and lacking character… white walls make it seem more like a cafeteria… hopefully they inject a little flavour into it as they go along. One weird thing is the full wall size mirror at the end of the hall where the bathrooms are… when you see it you’ll know what we mean… it messes you up… and we did’nt even have beers yet. - Location is accessible, easy to find, has lots of bike parking. Overall really nice, friendly staff and good beer outweigh the decor and atmosphere… something they can work on as they go.

    It's a great place, but with a very limited menu - only three mains! Sound echos so it's a bit noisy and the service was slow. And I think this is the only restaurant in Toronto that can't split the price of a shared entree over two bills!!

    Had a great team lunch experience at GLB. We were a group of 11 and it was great to find a space that could accommodate us (in fact, there was another large group at the same time). Service was very good and everyone enjoyed their meals. A great restaurant option in the East Waterfront area.

    First time there. Surpassed our expectations in every way. Clean, bright, fun and the food was outstanding. Smash burger and Chicken sandwich were uniquely different than anything we tried before, but lit up the taste buds. Great spot, great time. Cheers.
