Food was great. Service was slow and I found the drinks expensive. They sat us at the edge of the patio beside the line to get in - made it difficult to social distance as everyone was leaning and touching the rail. We asked to move - they did without hesitation.

Host told us there was a 2 hour time limit but communicated that 15 minutes before our time was up and my friend had just gotten a pint.

Server did not refill our water and was quite sarcastic at the end because we didn’t order that much food.

Overall communication was bad because the server told us we could take our time but that clearly was not the case.

These guys know what’s up. We had amazing service from the staff, and the patio tables were properly spaced for COVID-19 restrictions. Excellent food, excellent beer, will be coming back!

This was a terrible experience. They were updating the website while we wait and couldn’t order food. 4/5 menu items we picked were not available. No sanitization of the payment machines. No toilette paper in the washrooms.

My wife and I ordered eggs benedict and there was just something missing. We can't put our finger on it but we left leaving unsatisfied. The salad could have used a lighter vinegraite, it was too heavy with cheese (not for a brunch salad). One of our daughters ordered the kids pancakes and it was denser than bread. It literally was like a cake in a pan.

Great place to grab a pre-theatre bite (Factory Theatre is just a minute’s walk away). Service is great — personable and efficient. Fairly quiet for conversation early evening weeknights, a little noisier on weekends but conversation is totally possible.

Friendly service, well tended to, tasty food, but small $25 charcuterie board. The waiter did offer and serve us additional croustilles. The mango habanero wings were very tasty. Onion soup and pancake were enjoyed by other members. We discovered NM because of the Groupon promotion: flight, tour, and popcorn. Tour was just a step behind the scenes, giving some history, and processing information, was simple and brief. The bacon Popcorn was a good pairing with the beer flight, very greasy and salty. It was a quiet afternoon and nice for our modest birthday celebration. They did not do anything ‘special’ for the birthday individual, some party members commented on that as a disappointment. Overall the experience was enjoyable!

The manager who did our tour was very passionate about his job! He was knowledgeable on the brews and definitely enjoyed doing what he was doing. Server was great as well. Only thing not-so hot-so was fish and chip lunch...fish was very greasy and fries were cold. Other than that a good day out!

We booked for NYE. The food was very good and the service as well. Manager and staff very welcoming and great! Just before 10:30 pm it turned into a club and the music was not very good. Wished we knew that the crowd was sooooooo young. We left before midnight as we could not stand the music and the crowd.

We were a group of 4 for lunch and other than us there was only one other group in the restaurant. It's a very large, attractive brewpub with comfortable seating. I ordered an IPA and it very good. Our waiter was friendly and attentive (maybe overly but he didn't have much else to do). I ordered the buttermilk chicken which was a huge disappointment. The flavor of the chicken was fine but the small portion and greasy preparation were bad. It was accompanied by a small piece of cornbread and a sad wilted sour boring cabbage slaw. My friends had fish tacos and a burger. They didn't rave about their meals but seemed okay with them. I tried the fries and they were good.
If the restaurant can't send out great food with no one in the restaurant, I certainly wouldn't want to risk going on a day they were busy.

The service was great staff is friendly and inviting. The food was not great the hash had no seasoning the chorizo sausage was dry. The English muffin was a bit mushy, food came out half warm. The hash tasted reheated the eggs werw a bit undercooked. My friend had the hash she didn't finish it they charged her $4 for one sausage. The sausage was bland, not worth the $15 they're charging for it. Mimosa deal is $5 a glass but brunch is a no go there's better in the city.

Everything was just ok, I definitely wouldn’t go back for a whole meal. It was much higher cost than expected (since pricing was not available online) and the food truly wasn’t great. Not bad, just not great. I expected more from the place. Would go back for beer on their patio, the mixed drinks were also subpar (but it is a brewery after all)

Enjoyed the spot. Decent beer and the service was great. Unfortunately they forgot my dessert (so did I) but still charged for it. No peach cobbler for me!
