Stopped Here in March since it was the only place in town that looked open. Spent almost $20 for a burger that had a stale bun. The patty had clearly been previously frozen. I could tell by the taste and uniform look to it. The...burger tasted so bland I couldn’t finish it. Fries were also clearly from a frozen bag. Given the higher end look of the place and the prices, I expected fresh food but instead i received average (at best) roadside frozen food. I won’t return.More

My husband and I had dinner there last night while we were visiting Tobermory. We knew it had to be good by the amount of people waiting. It was well worth the wait. The food, service, atmosphere was perfect. Chris our server, was outstanding, great...sense of humour, efficient and helpful. We decided to have 3 starters so that we could try more things on the menu. The salt and pepper short ribs and fries, delicious brussel sprouts and the calamari. We LOVED everything and would totally recommend this place. In fact it’s a must.More

My husband and I visited the Tobermory Brewing Company for dinner while visiting tobermory on our minimoon and we were both extremely impressed. As craft beer lovers we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to visit this spot and were not disappointed. We had read reviews...ahead so we were prepared for a bit of a wait for a table. We waited maybe 20 minutes in line, and then another 25 or 30 minutes on the patio with a beer for a warm spot to open up inside for food (it was quite chilly out). Both of our beers were great, my husband was especially pleased with the Porter. Once a table opened up inside we were seated and our server, Mason, quickly took our orders. Our appetizer, the rib bites, came very quickly and we were both surprised by the size. It could easily have been on the entree menu instead of the starters. We followed with the prime rib burger and a poutine. Both were delicious! When our bill came we realized we had not been charged for our second round of beers, we let Mason know, and he ended up comping one of the beers for our honesty! That was totally unexpected and unnecessary, but the gesture was very much appreciated by both of us. We would recommend anyone who enjoys craft beer & upscale pub food, but doesn’t mind a bit of a wait, to check out this spot!!More

We went to experience the beer and had an appetizer (Korean ribs) while enjoying the drinks on the patio. The food menu is quite varied and they have daily specials as well. Wait staff were exceptional attentive even though it was very busy (we waited...in line and the line was still there when we left -- worth waiting for a table) The retail store is closed but you can order beer to go through the was it staff.More

We visited the TBC twice in the same day. Even after eating elsewhere, and wishing we hadn't (The Fish and Chip Place) we went back to have a few more beers and some great food. The house made soups are excellent and the prime rib...burger was perfect. You have to try the fresh cut fries too!! All the beers were good, my favorite being the Hazy IPA. Very friendly staff! Cheers!More

Worth the wait. Good service and superior food. Try the Brussels sprout appetizer for a tasty and unusual treat. We liked the cream ale.

We were in Tobermory on a Monday night, and the LCBO's remain closed on Monday's. We did not eat or drink at this establishment, but we were grateful to be able to buy a 6-pack of their Fire Ban Amber beer. We were able to...enjoy a couple of them that evening, and took the rest for the road. Thanks Tobermory Brewing Company!More

You apparently didn't fit their target audience of rich male yacht owner. For a pub that employs a female brewer and almost all young female staff, I'm very surprised at the number of people I've talked to that say that... More
