Food was good. Server was great. It took a very long time to get our food. There was a table that ordered their mains steer us and they were served before us. We waited just shy of an hour before our mains arrived.

Service was EXCELLENT and the food was good. However, I was disappointed to find that many of the entrees have been removed from the menu, so it is more pub-style fare, now. Still tasty, but not what we were expecting.

We waited well over an hour for our food and had to ask three times for our bill. We asked for refills on drinks and never received them. The waitress was over worked….and the pizza was cold.

Our oldest son is off the college this year in Lyndsay Ontario at Fleming and we’re quite pleased that he now knows of a quality pub/restaurant that he and his classmates can frequent. We as parents that come to visit will also be visiting it again! I recommend it 100%

Great food, ok selection of beers on tap (compared to other breweries)
We went at 3pm on a Sunday and there were a lot of little kids there … not really a brewery setting.
Note: not their fault, but we originally sat outside and were swarmed by bees and wasps. We usually eat/drink outside at other breweries and never had it this bad.

The fries were soggy not crispy as I remember, the pasta looked like it had been made in a large batch with the sauce and pulled out of the pot

The nachos were good, crispy, with lots of toppings

Beware if you eat on the patio: lots of wasps!! No wasp catchers in sight :( Really distracted us from the meal. Frist 2 beers my husband requested from the menu were unavailable. Food was reasonable.

KathyT- I think your review was intended for Mother Nature. We have signage posted before you enter our patio regarding the weather and wildlife, as we don't have any control over either. I do apologize that we are out of some of our Ontario Craft Beer. We have been so incredibly busy that our modest little brewery just can't make things fast enough. However, we do have some other great options.

Our table of four was for outside dining in the early afternoon. The parking lot patio is a great location, but unfortunately, the wasps were too attracted to our beverages and food Our waitress was GREAT and quickly offered for us to go in to the restaurant itself as there was an open table. The location, the ambience, the staff and both libations and food were PERFECT! Truly a good experience! ENJOY!

We had made reservations for inside dining as we couldn’t predict the weather 2 weeks in advance! It did not rain but was very humid so glad we ate inside. Food and drinks were great. Would definitely go back and highly recommend!

Service was prompt and welcoming and we all enjoyed our meals.
My side Garden Salad was great with a variety of greens, slivered root vegs and sunflower seeds. The fries were amazingly crispy, and the portions were great. We'll be back.

Pie Eyed Monk was not a great experience at all for our first time there for dinner. Walked right in indoor part to sit on patio. No problem. No questions about mask etc. After ordering dinner, I went to use indoor washroom, I was stopped at door by a waitress who mentioned I needed to wear a mask to go indoors. I mentioned I was already indoors and that wasn’t mentioned then so she mentioned mask exemptions don’t work for private property and they have extra masks indoors. I said no thank you as I have a medical exemption and I would wait to use the washroom until I got home. After sitting back down outside and waiting for our dinner, that waitress (who wasn’t our actual waitress anyway) walked by me and threw a mask down on our table and walked away. I asked to speak to the manager who came out and said she was right and that all patrons a have to wear to wear a mask to enter and use their establishment. I mentioned I came in without one and no one mentioned anything, I mentioned I have a medical exemption and that I was happy to follow policy and wasn’t going to even use their washroom but wanted to bring it to his attention how I felt and how rude that waiter was by throwing a mask on our table after I was polite and sat back down. We just got the bill and left. Awful first experience and won’t be returning.

There is a sign posted on the door. A staff member did inform you of our policy once you were seated and provided you with a mask. We closed voluntarily for two weeks due to a covid related issue at our property. The loss of revenue is over $50,000.00. We are just trying to do our part to avoid another situation that causes us to close again. Each and every guest on the patio discussed your interaction with staff and management. There wasn't one person that was sad to see you leave.
