Great place to grab a pre-theatre bite (Factory Theatre is just a minute’s walk away). Service is great — personable and efficient. Fairly quiet for conversation early evening weeknights, a little noisier on weekends but conversation is totally possible.

Friendly service, well tended to, tasty food, but small $25 charcuterie board. The waiter did offer and serve us additional croustilles. The mango habanero wings were very tasty. Onion soup and pancake were enjoyed by other members. We discovered NM because of the Groupon promotion: flight, tour, and popcorn. Tour was just a step behind the scenes, giving some history, and processing information, was simple and brief. The bacon Popcorn was a good pairing with the beer flight, very greasy and salty. It was a quiet afternoon and nice for our modest birthday celebration. They did not do anything ‘special’ for the birthday individual, some party members commented on that as a disappointment. Overall the experience was enjoyable!

The Beast burger and truffle fries were delicious. My friends also enjoyed the ribs and vegan options. Interesting menu and would definitely return. Good value for money.

The manager who did our tour was very passionate about his job! He was knowledgeable on the brews and definitely enjoyed doing what he was doing. Server was great as well. Only thing not-so hot-so was fish and chip lunch...fish was very greasy and fries were cold. Other than that a good day out!

We booked for NYE. The food was very good and the service as well. Manager and staff very welcoming and great! Just before 10:30 pm it turned into a club and the music was not very good. Wished we knew that the crowd was sooooooo young. We left before midnight as we could not stand the music and the crowd.

We were a group of 4 for lunch and other than us there was only one other group in the restaurant. It's a very large, attractive brewpub with comfortable seating. I ordered an IPA and it very good. Our waiter was friendly and attentive (maybe overly but he didn't have much else to do). I ordered the buttermilk chicken which was a huge disappointment. The flavor of the chicken was fine but the small portion and greasy preparation were bad. It was accompanied by a small piece of cornbread and a sad wilted sour boring cabbage slaw. My friends had fish tacos and a burger. They didn't rave about their meals but seemed okay with them. I tried the fries and they were good.
If the restaurant can't send out great food with no one in the restaurant, I certainly wouldn't want to risk going on a day they were busy.

The service was great staff is friendly and inviting. The food was not great the hash had no seasoning the chorizo sausage was dry. The English muffin was a bit mushy, food came out half warm. The hash tasted reheated the eggs werw a bit undercooked. My friend had the hash she didn't finish it they charged her $4 for one sausage. The sausage was bland, not worth the $15 they're charging for it. Mimosa deal is $5 a glass but brunch is a no go there's better in the city.

Everything was just ok, I definitely wouldn’t go back for a whole meal. It was much higher cost than expected (since pricing was not available online) and the food truly wasn’t great. Not bad, just not great. I expected more from the place. Would go back for beer on their patio, the mixed drinks were also subpar (but it is a brewery after all)

Food was terrible, under cooked and servers didn't know which table to bring drinks to. We did not order any drinks yet 3 different servers came to our table with drinks. Would never go here again.

The only huge problem is the ONE and only bathroom... you need another bathroom!

Hey Toni! Thank you so much for the great rating. I apologize that our team did not inform you about our full size bathrooms at the top of the stairs to the right. The bathroom on the main floor is for accessibility. We look forward to dining with you again soon!! Kind Regards, Roger

Service was a little slow. But hoppy hour food was good and the drinks were good too. We had the wine and it was pretty good for the price.

Food was to spicy for our liking. Afternoon sun was blasting at our table which made it very uncomfortable. Not the best summerlicious experience I have had. I would not go back.

Enjoyed the spot. Decent beer and the service was great. Unfortunately they forgot my dessert (so did I) but still charged for it. No peach cobbler for me!

I went here with my friend for their summerlicious lunch, priced at $23. I found the items I ordered to be too salty. Not sure if I would come here again. The food was cooked well and it would've tasted more delicious if it hadn't been too salty.

My husband and I just visited Northern Maverick for the first time this Sunday morning. We had the Summerlicious menu which was super delicious! He had the salad, buttermilk fried chicken and peach cobbler and I had the veggie pakoras, buttermilk fried chicken and the ice cream with fruit compote. Everything was delicious and excellent price at $23 per person! Our server Michelle was so fun and attentive! Loved the patio and the restaurant atmosphere in general. Would definitely go again and recommend.

We had a groupon for a tour, two flights and some bacon popcorn. We had never been before, but were quite impressed not only with the impressive set-up but the bacon popcorn was surprisingly delicious, the in-house brewed beers were fantastic, and the bathrooms were SO clean (surprising how many places in Toronto slack in this regard)! We will definitely return and I’ll be looking for their lager in the LCBO :)

Was not organized and gave away the table. They made it up to us by giving us free drinks but they promised we'd be in front of a TV on the phone and it was not quite as promised. They did their best though given the mix up
