Server friendly but we had issues. Partners ribs arrived cold, not warm, not cool, but cold. Sent them back . Replacement meal arrived same time as the other couple and I were paying the bill. I ordered steak frites but no fries and a Caesar salad. Meal delivered was steak with fries and house salad. Kept it so not to create difficulty as we were a group of four. Then my wife's ribs stone cold. All together food experience not good. Ambiance and friends great.

Myself, family and friends decided to book a table at your restaurant New Year Day for dinner. I must say we were rather disappointed, having to wait 1 1/2- 2 hours for our meal to be served and found the serving sizes rather small for the price. All in all our experience with 3 brewers was rather disappointing and not certain myself or others will return for another meal. I consider 1 1/2 - 2hours a bit too long to wait for a meal and the meal was not very warm when brought to the table. I must say it was a very disappointing experience.

We were very disappointed in our experience on New Year's Eve at the 3 Brewers. This was our 3rd New Year's at this restaurant but it was also our last. Our individual server was very nice and very apologetic when our orders were mixed up - not her fault. Our salads/appetizers cam at the same time as our meal. Not all of the modifications requested were done - ie fries instead of salad. The steaks were cold. The peppercorn sauce was cold. Parts of the order were missing and the meal almost finished before the missing side dish was served.

Long wait for our food. We waited over 30 minutes. The staff were nice but didn’ come overmuch to see how we were doing. It wasn’t that busy for a New Years Eve. Next year we will go somewhere else to celebrate .

Fun place for dinner before going to the movies- in fact they now have a dinner , beer and a movie deal that is a good bargain. Service is fast and friendly, beer is cold and fresh , food is upmarket bar menu. Not a place for intimate dinner and conversation as the noise level is always pretty high.

Not a bad place for a pre-game meal. The "Triton" beer pitcher was a bit of a waste - the spouts were leaking, and they put ice on top? For some reason? This would only keep the air cool, not the beer!

Food was good - the poutine with maxi fries was delicious. The signature "Flammes" are tasty.

The ambiance was OK - expected more from a brewpub but it was fine. Recommended for a quick pre-game meal.

Our family group of 11 thoroughly enjoyed our evening at The 3 Brewers. Our ages ranged from 19 to 87. We sat at a long high table in the middle of the restaurant with plenty of room that allowed us to get up and visit with others at the end of the table while we waited for our food to arrive. The food was delicious, especially the Flammekueche and the waitress was very friendly and patient given our group size. We will definitely be back.

Easy to book online. Immediate confirmation. We were celebrating a birthday and the waitress was very obliging to bring a desert with a sparkler to surprise my sister. We did not feel rushed to leave and chatted over our meal and for a bit afterwards too. Thank you.

I made reservations (online) for a group of 12 (for my 26th birthday) two weeks in advance and I even got two emails confirming my reservation. When we showed up the hostess claimed to have no reservation for our group. Luckily it was dead in there so we still got the big table in the back room. We were not being served and we wanted to order drinks so we moved to a high top table closer to the main bar (just to get our drinks). Pretty ridiculous when you're the only people in the entire restaurant... Food and drinks were good but the lack of organization has deterred me from going back.

The beer was excellent along with the hot Italian saussage in the pizza that I had ordered were outstanding.

Keep up the good work.

P.S. Please try to sharpen you pen when it comes to pricing ! LOL

We were visiting Ottawa from out of town and were staying near by at a hotel and were recommended this restaurant. We came to celebrate a friends 30th birthday and had put this in the notes when I made the reservation, we also told our waitress, the end of the meal came and there was no dessert brought out (which is pretty standard for any restaurant) and nothing special done for our friend. We weren't even offered a dessert menu so that we could choose something to purchase to her. Safe to say it was a let down expecting after relaying twice we were there for a special occasion that nothing was done. The food was also mediocre for the price. We will unfortunately not be returning.

The first thing I noticed was a very nice, relaxed atmosphere. We were seated fairly quickly ( had a reservation). We were served quickly, but not rushed. Menu and drink options were well explained to us by a very pleasant server.
The onlu issue was that my med-rare steak was very well done. I didn't return it, but ate it anyway. It was fine, just not cooked how I ordered it. When our server found out, she discounted our meal, which I thought was very nice.
Overall a very pleasant experience. I will come back.

Attended with my four children for the s’mores campfire on the menu... was excellent! What a great and unique idea. Need to expand drink menu for kids as did not have chocolate milk or rootbeer and they ran out of pizza which my younger child wished to have. However, that was all fine and the campfire s’mores made up for it! Fantastic time and waiter was great.

Was very loud and could not hear people that I was sitting with.
Had the 2 piece fish and chips - one piece of fish was good the other was so fried that there was no fish left - same happened for 3 people at the table.

Our only “issue” was that the server stacked the plates in front of us...I mean right in front of us...move out of the way while I place the dishes in front of you and scrape the food off other dishes in your place setting!!!
Other than this she was quite pleasant...just a little awkward clearing...

there was a limited menu for GF options; being a brewer place I had hoped they would have had one GF beer option. Very open concept; I imagine it to be quite loud when fully occupied. Bathrooms on the 2nd level is definitely NOT disable access friendly; I just waiting till I returned to the office from our gathering and did not drink much water because of that.
