Have wanted to stop here for years but today it finally happened. Lunch time I had Fish & Chips and my hubs had a Salmon Burger. Both arrived in a timely manner delivered by a friendly and efficient server. Food was good. Fish was fresh and cooked perfectly. Tarter sauce was good, asked for more! Place is clean and large....

I had the Brewers salad with beef brisket. It was delicious. My sister had the Brewers burger with fries. The fries are amazing! And the burger was quite tasty. Generous portions and reasonable prices make this a great place to visit. And the location is really great with views of the river.

I am sorry that you had a bad experience. If you haven't been to the Brewery in a while then you do not know all of the improvements we have been making at the restaurant. Mike More

We have gone here many times and never been disappointed. They have a nice variety of choices and are well priced for the menu. My husband enjoys the beer selection...not too many wine choices for me but that's ok. :-)

Stopped on our way home from skiing in BC. Great atmosphere. Solid food and beer. With all of the microbreweries in the northwest, this is not the top choice, but each beer has a distinctive flavor. The aftertaste are also distinctive, which means they really try. My favorite is the Scottish Ale. It is award winning, and you can tell.... More

Until they turn up the heat inside expect the coffee, soup and you to be cold while you are there. Never a good sign when a server is wearing a stocking cap and sweatshirt and another employee was wearing a hoodie. Food from the kitchen was hot when it arrived but didn't stay that way long. We did not linger... More

Caught off guard by the beer -- stopped for a pint after skiing and now I've got to go back to buy some growlers. I had the Scottish Ale and dang, it was good. Wish this place wasn't so far from where I live! The food was good. Nothing hugely special but a blue cheese burger and a bowl of... More
