We were severed in the shade of engine 7020 which was perfect because no one had to sit in the sun or squint into it. It was about 14C but we didn’t feel cold because the train engine blocked the wind. Server made great recommendations which we took. All was good even for the two little kids.

The guy at the front accommodated us very kindly. Our timeslot is at 2pm but we arrived at around 1.30-ish. He found a way to prep up our family's table for our thanksgiving lunch weekend.

Ordered the pork hock and it was cooked perfectly - crispy on the outside, moist and tender on the inside.

Steam Whistle also takes care in celebrating special occasions with you - we went for my husband’s birthday and the waitress had provided us with complimentary beers for the occasion!

It was a hot day, the umbrella helped, but a couple at our table was in direct sunlight and we’re sweating like crazy. Great server, beer is excellent, the burger and fries were great. Nice patio and super location!

I was very impressed with the staff. They kept helping me and checking in with me.
I was picking up friends at the airport who were coming in from Calgary. They were coming here to take their daughter to York University. The dad had not been here for years Last time was for the G 8. He is a RCMP who was deployed to Toronto .
Everyone enjoyed the night and the food. Your staff were so kind.
Happy Anniversary to Joshua. Please keep up the great work.

Love Steam Whistle. With two teenagers in tow, I wasn’t sure how the food would go over. They LOVED it. I will absolutely go again. What great value as well. Relaxed, quick in (with reservation), fast service, fantastic staff. Would highly recommend.

It took some time to flag down a server to get our drink order but after that the experience was great. Server made recommendations, helped us in the merchandise store, and the food and drinks came out promptly. The whole meal was great but the German fries in particular were so good! Looking forward to going back and trying other food

Great place to eat. Little blip in the quality of the food this time but they will make it better. Service was a little slow and we felt neglected at times but the patio was busy.
Check it out. We think you’ll like it!

The food and service was pretty good, my main complaint would be the washrooms inside the actual brewery not the ones in the restaurant were disgusting and seemed like they hadn’t been cleaned in a while. Also would be nice to have chairs to sit in instead of picnic tables. Very uncomfortable to not have backs when sitting there for a while.
