Great new experience

As the name states you would expect to find many different ' bra's' in this Restaurant. You wouldn't be dissapointed ! A great selection of micro brewery ranges are on offer and the staff are very well informed as to the characters of each. I have taken a few Beer aficionado's there now and they... read more

We had dinner here for the first time tonight... from start to finish everything was great! Sue was our server and she made sure our "first time" wont be our last. Reservations are recommended as they got pretty busy around 7:00.

We went to bru as it was recomended to us by another couple. I was excited to go as the menu looked fantastic. However, I hate to say Im in no rush to go back. The fries and nachos were delicious but unfortunately that is where it ends…I ordered the burger as our server said it was 'epic' It was... More

This place is fantastic, the beer menu appears to be overwhelming at first - tons of choices, the food menu is not huge but lots of choices. The Turkey Club was AMAZING and the side salad with the house dressing was great.

They have gluten-free fried pickles and fish and chips, and their poutine is GF friendly too. Excellent beer selection, obviously being a beer bar, and also a good wine selection a-la-Maluca next door. They are mutually owned with Seasons, Maluca, and Corks in Oakville, and all are highly recommended places.

Lots of great restaurants along Lakeshore in Oakville. After a week at work, Bru is my favourite place to start the weekend. Casual atmosphere with new beers to try.

Brought to you by the owners of Seasons (fine dining) and Maluca (tapas and wine) is Bru - craft beer and upscale gourmet twist on pub food. And it's all beautifully executed. Warning: if you are not adventurous with your pallet, this is not the place for you to go and eat. I was tempted to go for their kofta... More

Downtown Oakville has long been lacking a place to drop in for an after dinner drink that wasn't a pub and Bru fits the bill. Decorated in rustic chic, the atmosphere works well alongside an impressive and reasonably priced craft beer selection. The best part of our visit was the service; while Bru's single malt selection is seriously lacking, our... More

We are fairly new to this neighbourhood and attempting to try every restaurant downtown. Bru looks great from the outside and nice atmosphere inside. Server was new but tried her best. I ordered fried chicken with slaw and biscuits (unusual for me). Slaw was overly spicy, fried chicken was bland and fried coating was tough, biscuit was small and stale... More

Oakville has needed a great beer bar like this for a while. They have a great selection of craft beer both on draft and in cans/bottles. We have visited a few times now and the service has been pretty decent. Lots of TVs to watch the games, all in high def. The menu is a bit small and on the... More
