The early special until 5:59pm was a very good value for $30. You can pick from the main menu for appetizer, entrée, and dessert. The quality and presentation of the food was excellent but the drinks were a big disappointment because they were soooooo small. My martini was half the size of any other I have ever had and the wine servings were also very small for the price. The entry to the restaurant really needs cleaning up and updating. Had it not been for the good reviews on Trip Advisor we never would have gone to the restaurant.
However, the interior of the restaurant was nice and very relaxing with a modern décor and pleasant music. The wait staff was very responsive and we were not rushed.
We would go again but would either buy a bottle of wine or bring our own bottle and pay the $20 corking fee.

Hey J D,

Thanks for your review and I am happy that you had a good overall experience. As I've noted on other reviews, we recently took over ownership of The Other Brothers and have given the whole place a good once over while also updating the menu. We have kept the early dinner special due to popular demand and have most definitely increased the liquor portions to something you can expect at any establishment :)

We look forward to seeing you in again and don't forget to check out our new lunch menu if you're in the area and want a delicious and affordable bite to eat. All the best!

We have enjoyed The Other Brother's restaurant several times and often select the Chef's Choice for dinner, in which you are served a surprise selection of appetizer, entree, and dessert. The optional wine pairing was fantastic as well. Even though we no longer live or work in Guelph, The Other Brother's is our top choice when we are looking for a mature and enjoyable couple's night out.

My wife and I recently worked with The Other Brother’s to host our wedding reception in the restaurant, and had an absolutely amazing experience. I’ll break things down by part of the process, so if you only want to hear about the food, skip to the end!

We worked exclusively with Sara to plan our reception, and from day 1 she was helpful, transparent, and a pleasure to work with. We were given straightforward menu and bar options, and since our party was roughly the size of the restaurant’s main area (55 people) we were able to book the entire venue for the night. There was no booking fee and no minimum spend, compared to significant minimum bills at other restaurants that we had looked at.

The event menu at The Other Brother’s is pulled directly from many of their daily menu dishes, so if you enjoy the food already, your guests will love you. We chose to have three appetizers, three mains, and three dessert options, and Sara was nice enough to allow us to include a vegetarian (and vegan) option without having it ‘count’ as one of our main three options providing we were able to specify the rough number in advance. Our guests loved being able to see the menu on the night of, and order what they were most in the mood for. They were also fantastic about working around a few food allergies and specific needs. We double checked ingredients with them and they even offered a fruit bowl dessert that wasn’t on the menu for a few diabetic guests.

We selected several signature drinks from their menu, and Sara was very communicative in the days leading up to the event, letting us know when we would be able to set up decorations, and working with us around our hectic pre-wedding schedule.

The night before our reception, we were able to come in and set up some decorations, while getting the table layouts finalized. Although we weren’t able to set everything up the night of, we arrived the next day to find that the team at The Other Brother’s had set all of the remaining decorations up for us, which was a huge help.

Kat was our main point of contact for the day-of, and she and the staff at The Other Brother’s were phenomenal. Our guests loved the food choices, and drinks, appetizers, entrees and desserts came out so efficiently you wouldn’t have thought they had taken 50 orders at the same time and were cooking 50 meals at once. Every guest at our reception commented how amazing the food was, and we encouraged them to return and sample the full menu.

After the reception was over, we asked if we were able to return the next day to pick up the decorations. Kat offered to come in on her day off and meet us the morning after, and we arrived to find our decorations neatly packed into boxes. Needless to say, the staff at The Other Brother’s went above and beyond to ensure our day was amazing, effortless, and that our guests were blown away by the food, drinks and hospitality. If we had to plan our reception all over again, we would not have changed a thing. Whether you are thinking of planning an event or just a dinner out we highly recommend The Other Brother’s! The definitely don’t disappoint.

Service was fragmented and terrible. Appetizers were awful, Caesar Salad was boring, seafood trio was tasteless. Chair was wobbly...needs to replaced. Restaurant seems very dirty and old, old decor. In a party of 6...4 people were served entrees and completed eating the entrees before the other 2 were served. The cheese fondue was absolutely disgusting...it tasted like Campbell's mushroom soup with a bit of cheese in it with pickles vegetables! Really? Nothing like Cheese Fondue at all. President's Choice does a much better job at Cheese Fondue. The waitress then tried to say that every Cheese fondue is a bit different....I think they need a trip to Switzerland to taste the real thing! The stuffed chicken with risotto was soggy and swimming in sauce. The flourless torte was horrid and even the ice cream sundae the worst the kids had ever had (what can you do to a sundae?). If this is one of the finest restaurants in Guelph then you should drive to Toronto. We have never even experienced such a horrible place! Don't bother going.....go to McDonald's! Don't waste your hard earned money on this one!

The atmosphere was nice. The service was attentive and very kind. The food was impeccable!! Will definitely be recommending this to all of my co-workers when they come to Guelph on business. The ONLY issue was it was a little hard to find, but worth seeking out!!
