“Lively Weekend Crowd”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

Having visited Brew Bistro on three occasions in the last 5-months, and over the weekend. It's always packed, little chance of a seat (get there early), and you need to fight your way through the crowd to find somewhere to stand. The beer has a unique taste (brew their own), it takes some getting used to, but still went down.
Having said that, The atmosphere and music is great.
On one occasion we ate in the restaurant, I had an excellent steak, which was cooked to my taste.
Worth a visit.

“amazing place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

i am a vegetarian.. and even though they do not have a wide selection for veg food the much that they have is delicious,.... you get what you pay for. the ambiance is nice especially during sundowners and happy hour..... great live bands.... the only downside is that if you want to go late at night it gets too packed and there is no seating, so go before 9pm... but otherwise its a great place

“Pretty average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

It is pretty small with not enough seating. It being a microbrewery the drink selection was limited to what they make and i didn't particularly enjoy their drinks. The food was not good.

“Good vibe, food & drinks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

Love this place for an after-work drink, and for build your own burger night. The terrace is not good for conversation as the music is really loud. The fancy restaurant is OK, but the menus are different, so you can't just make the shift halfway through the night. The happy hour is really great, though, and brunch on Sundays pretty good.
