Visited with friends and had a very pleasant evening. The service was good, the noise level was pleasant and the food good. A good choice of beer and wine and many options, including GF, on the menu.

No service! We were seated at an outside table on the restaurant deck at 1:00 pm and had seen no wait staff, not even a glass of water by 1:10. We left.

The varied menu should have something for everyone. The burger was very good and filling! Our server was friendly and knowledgeable.

My wife and I began with flights of their excellent brews then enjoyed halibut & chips and cod & chips with pieces of the mango & coconut cheesecake - all excellent. We called ahead for a reservation - early evening, 5.30-7.00, is their busiest time....Service was quick, attentive, and friendly. Price for everything was a very reasonable $90 (before tip). Children are allowed in the restaurant section but the related menu options are limited (see their menu online). The restaurant is fully wheelchair accessible.More

This was our first meal of our short visit to Nanaimo. We were very impressed with the options on the menu and the dishes that we ordered were excellent. The restaurant was very busy but the service was still top-notch. And the beer was excellent.

Today we visited after having had to miss for a long time because of Covid. We used to SO enjoy pretty much everything. But it's different now.....no lamb burgers, the nachos were the most lightly dressed we have ever had anywhere - cheese? What cheese?...Had to really look to find it. Beef dip...boring and flavourless. Carbonera - not really carbonara. So disappointing. Will think twice before we head back here. It won't be our first choice. Not so much now.More

We sporadically arrived at Longwood Brew Pub as the restaurant across the street had a long wait. It was clear there was no room for us at Longwood but the wonderful hostess seemed to huddle with the manager for a while, and they pulled some...strings to squeeze us in on short notice. It was a great table in front of a beautiful fireplace. The server was fantastic and the food came out very quickly. The chicken wings appy was perfect, and our food - the Carbonara and Halibut and chips - was top quality. Loved it. Left a big tip as they deserved it. A+More

Atmosphere is very rustic cabin, place is hoppin' and the staff are attentive. They did a nice job of balancing the pub vibe with family friendly. The crab cakes, Irish red ale chowder and the pilsner will keep us coming back. I think they take...resos, were lucky enough to get in without one around noon. By the time we left at 1:30 there were no free tables and folks were waiting. Recommend a reso if you can get one.More

Had a very nice lunch. First visit so not quite sure what to expect portion size. I had the fish taco appetizer for lunch and could barely finish it. One of each: salmon, shrimp & cod. Delicious. Husband very happy with the Thai chicken soup...and wrap. But the experience was topped off by Elise, our server. Very professional, efficient, welcoming, cheerful. A secret weapon for this business!More

While I did enjoy the meal I had and the Irish Ale, I did find the portion size a little small for my liking considering the price (however I'm learning that all eating out in Nanaimo is more expensive than home) and my beer was...a little warmer than I would have cared for it. I would like to come back sometime and try the nachos as they looked massive!More

During our last visit, we had to wait an hour for our nachos. They also told us that they could not customize the nachos (a simple request to put olives on half of the nachos) because the kitchen would not do it. Are restaurants not...suppose to cater to customers reasonable requests? How hard is it to sprinkle some olives on half of the order as opposed to putting cold olives in a bowl to sprinkle on hot nachos? The restaurant is old, their patio furniture consists of plastic green and maroon chairs and tables from the nineties, and the manager did not try to make our order right. We are long-time patrons and will not return until this place either makes some improvements or is under new management.More

Our freinds in Nanaimo took us out for dinner to the Longwood. Reservations for later times were impossible so we dined early. A great place with superb service and brewed on site beers. We started with Crab Cakes then had the excellent Fish and Chips....Excellent service, great food and beers!More

Great beers, nice patio, and our food was delish. Nice to have cheese on the beef dip, and pretty much the best salmon burger I've had. Will be back!
