We are on their extended makeshift patio even though they had a limited menu, the food and drinks were fantastic and the service was friendly. Great live music made it a perfect summer evening stop.

Must try pub in Niagara Falls! The beer menu was excellent and the beer flight offering made it easy to try a variety of local brews. My wife and I shared the PoBoy and Chicken & Waffles sandwich which must be the best food within...100 miles. The sweet potato fries were amazing. Check this place out if you visit Niagara!More

We were exploring the downtown area of Bracebridge looking for a unique spot for lunch, when we came across this spot at the end of a laneway. There were plenty of options to accomodate a gluten free diet, and as well, gf beer and cider...options were available. Coffee was piping hot, plentiful and made in a french press so was delicious! The Korean BBQ Burger and the Special Burger of the day were very tasty, messy and enjoyed thoroughly with some of the best fries we have had for a while. Entertainment started at about 3pm, and the place quickly filled up with locals. The atmosphere was fun and not too loud despite the small space. Even though there was only one server looking after the whole place he was very efficient, friendly and attentive. We would definitely recommend and return to this place.More

My husband and i have been several times to the Griffon...never again. We were the only 2 people ordering food. The menu changed and the choices were poor, especially if you don't eat pork. We settled on a bison burger and fried chicken on a...bun. The bison burger was ok...however our food order was wrong. I had to wait while i watched my husband eat. My chicken came with a side of gritty (sand) and drenched salad. Awful. The fried chicken was no better than McDonald's. We would have had a better meal at Harveys. With very few customers...how could the food be so bad ...but it was not right that we came together to enjoy a meal and felt soooo disappointedMore

We ate at the pub with friends by chance and it turned out to be a really fun evening. It was trivia night and we really had fun participating in the event. The pub food was quite good and the service was good as well....Very casual atmosphere.More

Busy spot on a Saturday afternoon but servers were friendly and informative. Nice selection of beers even if a bit pricey. Will definitely return.
