This was our last hop on a Friday night out while on a weekend getaway. Hit the spot with wide beer selection, great service, and fun atmosphere. Open windows to outside at one and and lounge area at the other. Loved this spot.

Great selection of beers on tap. They rotate selection. The staff is friendly and will make recommendations on beer selection if you are looking for a suggestion. We didn't try any food but it looked ok at best. Go for the beer

This is a great eclectic bar/restaurant. We didn't eat, just dropped in on a whim for a beer and ended up hanging out for a few hours on a Sunday evening. Very cool decor of vintage beer signs and stuffed rodents. Set up well for socializing. Excellent beer varieties and a full standard bar as well. The service was friendly... More

We just wanted a place to get a snack and drinks after our road trip, and this place had $12 (plus or minus $1) liters of craft beer so we couldn't say no. They had at least 25 local beers on draft and the pork rinds were really good too (BBQ is what we tried). Bar tender was really nice... More

Stopped in for a drink before dinner. Nice beer list with some unique options. Had the poutine and loved it. Great ambiance for casual drinks/dining.

Extensive craft beer list laid out for novice or experienced drinkers to easily consume. All of the servers have legitimate knowledge of the beers and often offer up suggestions based on personal preferences. The menu is small for a reason...because everything is amazing. Mussels in white wine broth sleeping under a blanket of crispy fries that are topped with garlic... More

Since four of us had eaten at a restaurant on King Street, Closed for Business was conveniently located for us to enjoy a beer after dinner. Although it was very busy, we found a table right at the back and their extensive list of draft beers made our selections quite easy.

Low key restaurant and bar. Husband got chicken sandwich with fries. Really liked. I got veggie burger with green beans. Loved the green beans.
