Unique New Brunswick brew pub

Good selection of craft beers made on site. They offer flights to taste them all or growlers to take them with you. Tasty pub food with excellent portions. Friendly waitress showed us where they make the beer.

We had a wonderful experience at Big Tide, the Beer was amazing and both the Bartender Chris and the Brewmaster Wendy were friendly and. knowledgeable. They were in the process of creating a beer brewed with seawater that sounded like they were really pushing the envelope of creativity. Wish I could get back to try it.

Would never recommend this restaurant to anyone. The manager Chris has such a poor attitude and is ignorant.

I like to try and get to know all the places I stop, and these guys made it easy. With a local flare via the wall of personal numbered beer mugs for local regulars, to the chatty customers at the bar ad the bar staff, an all around win that reminds me why I love the East Coast.

This used to be one of my favorite places, (see my previous review) however after my last visit I am not sure if I will ever be back! The food was mediocre, which I could have overlooked, however, service was incredibly slow and not friendly. Once we got our food we were reminded several times that "trivia night" was starting...

We decided to have dinner here since the menu looked good and they are a local micro brew. Sadly all elements were a bit of a let down. To start off it was a busy friday night, service was slow, but friendly. It's one thing if your busy and things get backed, it's another to completely forget to enter a... More

Second stop on our "MooseHead" Pub Crawl from our cruise ship. Manager gave us a tour of how the beer is brewed. Sampled 3 different kinds of beer...some enjoyed the Blue Berry. Had a few appetizers....very tasty. Very clean place....excellent tour by the manager.

Not only were the fish & chips I ordered the greasiest I had ever had, but they had so much breading that I could hardly find the fish! The beer was tasty but the glass was warm! If it wasn't for the cruise ships coming in, this place wouldn't have a chance because I can't imagine having any repeat customers!
