Visited here twice in late August 2023 while driving from Ontario to BC with our shy rescue dog. Really few (if any) places in Kenora allow dogs on the patio so this seemed our only option. While we really (really!) appreciated that LOTWBC were friendly...to dogs, there's not much good to say here about the service. We had to repeatedly ask for service and waited about 30-40 minutes for a server just to take our order . The place was busy but there is clearly a lack of staff or training. The beer is very good. The food is ok for what it is (very few non-meat and non-greasy healthy choices). The "veggie wings" and kale casesar were ok, but the sauces were oily/heavy. I suspect the burgers and pizzas are probably better. The music is loud and it's a pretty stressful bustling environment to have a dog - or even for humans who want to retain their hearing - but most of the patrons seem to appreciate the loud ambiance. Wish there were more options but this is ok in a pinch.More

Great selection of beer! I would recommend ordering a flight so that you can sample a few types before deciding on your favorite! Food was your traditional pub fair…good not necessarily great! If you like beer then make a point of stopping in.

We stopped for lunch on our way out of town, and had a great meal! The beer choices are amazing-we tried a black IPA, which was absolutely wonderful! I had the Crispy Chicken Sammy and loved every bite, even though it was huge and I...had to eat it with a knife & fork - so messy but delicious!More

We are traveling across Canada in our truck camper this summer. We love to visit local breweries on route. We read several reviews and we were impressed with the gracious replies made by one of the owners to other peoples reviews, both negative and positive...we started with a flight to help determine which beer we wanted with our meal. We tried four different ones and liked all of them! This is quite unusual for me! Our server/bartender was Elise. She was delightful, friendly, efficient, and very helpful with her suggestions regarding both the beer choices and the food choices. We had the beef brisket sliders and the Al Pastor tacos. They were both delicious and flavorful… possibly the best we’ve ever had! I rarely order brisket because of the fat in it and this had none that we could find! We loved the artistic beer cans and purchased some in the store to share with friends. We wish we didn’t live 1000 miles east of here because we would definitely be regular customers at this brewery. Obviously we highly recommend it!More

Servings are too large. The Mark Cuban sandwich was awful: way too much mustard and too salty, with a slab of pork. The macaroni and cheese was too runny with not enough pasta in it, although flavour was good. It's a nice bar though.More

It was very busy when we arrived. Had to seat at bar. Bartender took our order, asked for red Zinfandel wine and a Caesar. He wrote it down in front of us, but I got a Merlot instead. Tried to make the best of it...but was way too dry for me. My husband had a Caesar but had to ask 3 times before he made it. Food we ordered was good but extremely spicy. Other than that, it was ok, but I don't think we will be back. Cost of 2 drinks, a pizza and tacos was $86! So be prepared to pay.More

SOON AFTER WE GOT served with no cutlery,...wrong Nachos( probably theirs and beef brisket with extra habenaros, which we tried and hated. Offered to keep with a 25% discount. We were offered, after 1 1/2 hours our original ground beef order in 5 minutes , it came over 10 minutes later. Asked for a glass of red wine, she forgot and finally asked bar person for a glass and received. The nachos were still poor,did not eat much , bill came with No discount and paid and left. NICE birthday dinner eh! No firehats left! No dessert either. We tried to be nice! This has in past been our fav spot! NO MORE.More
