“Very Good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2011

Food was casual and very good. Reasonably priced for being in such a tourist-y area. Service was excellent. Would take a pass on the beer.

“Ask for the sampler and try the wings!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2011

A colleague and I visited the Steamworks for drinks during a business trip. We arrived around 8:30pm. The place was busy for a weeknight, but we were shown to a comfortable table for two. I was pleased to see the seating wasn't too cramped. If you sit in the back, you get a lovely view of the harbour. I had some difficulty choosing a beer, so I asked if they offered a sampler (there wasn't one on the menu). The waitress confirmed they did. It's about 14$ and is the equivilant of approximately 2 beers. When it comes, they put a placemat down with circles for the mini pint glasses and each is labled, so you know what you're drinking. Be prepared to be the envy of other patrons, as they crane their necks and gawk with curiousity at your display of 8-10 l'il glasses of beer. The waitress said the sampler isn't on the menu because they have a finite number of glasses. She also said whenever someone orders one, everyone else wants one as well. I really enjoyed the sampler and my colleague enjoyed his pale ale. We each ordered a plate of wings and they were delicious - not all goopy or sticky but nicely flavoured and tender. The sampler and wings cost me 30$ with tip, which I found to be reasonable. Service was prompt and the atmosphere was laid back and typically pub-like. Highly recommend.

“Decent”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2009

Typcial brew pub atmosphere with bar food that's decent. Food leans to the casual side (think burgers), but some entrees are also offered. The fish and chips is a great choice and the fries are really good. Service was efficient and prompt, if not overly friendly.
