Great atmosphere. Great beer. Great food

Only criticism would be really slow service, but being a busy day all in all good experience

Had a fantastic time- excellent live music, cute Christmas decor, great food & beer, and friendly service. We both got the fish sandwich and ordered a second one because it was that good! The Leafs were even playing in the background.

Service was great - upbeat and cheery and very willing to ensure we had a great time and we had what we needed.
Tried the Kale and smoked trout - so very good, even without the spicy Boursin which i couldn't use. Banquet Burger was perfect for husband.

Tables and Seats were unexpected and not that comfortable to sit on for a longer period of time.

We were severed in the shade of engine 7020 which was perfect because no one had to sit in the sun or squint into it. It was about 14C but we didn’t feel cold because the train engine blocked the wind. Server made great recommendations which we took. All was good even for the two little kids.

The guy at the front accommodated us very kindly. Our timeslot is at 2pm but we arrived at around 1.30-ish. He found a way to prep up our family's table for our thanksgiving lunch weekend.

Ordered the pork hock and it was cooked perfectly - crispy on the outside, moist and tender on the inside.

Steam Whistle also takes care in celebrating special occasions with you - we went for my husband’s birthday and the waitress had provided us with complimentary beers for the occasion!
