2013-05-01. You kind of have to stop here if you are in town but I find the beers are a bit less than stellar. The food has always been good. They are now doing "chefís specials" that are a bit more upscale than the usual pub grub. The braised beef and mashed potatoes I had were superlatively good. Their two biggest sellers are now being contract brewed off-site apparently. Definitely still worth a visit while in town.
RBSG 05. Food was awesome, burgers. Waitress (nicole) was especially friendly and accomadating when I said I was driving so would only be sampling a little bit. Even loaned me a pen when mine conked out. This place grows on me with each visit.

A nice stop for lunch between Toronto and Ottawa. Place is a bit kitchy, but fun for the kids. Beers were decent, not world beaters, but a nice selection of their own plus regional micros. Food was ok, fine pub food. No idea what the places looks like at night.

Decent enough place to kick back a couple pints in Kingston. their beers can range from fairly good to flat out boring, but the food is above decent and the service is always quick. Warning - the pub across the street has only 3 decent bottles so youíre better off parking yourself here. Hard to believe a university town has so few good establishments.

Iíve been here quite a few times and itís fairly good for Kingston standards. They are primarily focused on their own beers which are acceptable but nothing special. The ambiance is pretty nice, lots of beer memorabilia everywhere and the bar is sectioned off into several areas so if you have a few people you definitely can feel like you have a room to yourself. Food is adequate.

Super friendly staff, the decor is awesome! Boats loads of amazing vintage beer collectibles. The food was quite good, and the beers were pretty decent. A nice selection of their own brews complimented by done good Ontario micros. I would go back in a heartbeat.

Great brew pub. The staff and patrons are very friendly. The food is great with a large menu to work from. Service is usually excellent with a nominal glitch especially when they are busy. My favorite brew is the Dragonís Breath Real Ale. I also enjoy the Whitetail Cream Ale a nice refreshing change. They make brews for special events or for seasonal enjoyment. They have about 17 other beers/ales on tap, all are regional craft beers with the exception of Guinness. There is also a large selection of single malts. My main stop whenever I am in Kingston.

Had been to this place many times during university years ago, but that was prior to my becoming a full-on beergeek. Returned this summer for a visit. The vibe remains just what I remember it to be, essentially my ideal notion of what a brewpub should look like: tons of Canadian and international craft beer paraphenalia and tap handles (think Falling Rock in Denver, only smaller and more Canadian), topped only by the number of photos on the walls of patrons both famous and local. Very very cool vibe. The beers however are mediocre at best, except for the two selections they have on cask. Food is very good for pub fare, probably the best chicken wings Iíve ever had in a pub. Service was prompt and friendly.

Yet another place I visited many times and havent rated yet. Last visit was October 3rd 2009, during the Kingston Chili Fest...our usual hangout to digest the said chili(s). I really like the decor, with tons of British and antique beer paraphenelia. The food is typically good and plentifull. The beer selection is a bit static though (maybe Iím not going at the right time). Given that this is one of the oldest brewpubs in Canada, and the first in Ontario, it is worth the visit.

Some nice history to this place. Great location right down by the water. Has a front patio by the street, a nice gardeny patio in the back, and a pretty typical pub style inside. The few times Iíve gone, its primarily been for a meal, so I donít have much of a read for the service in terms of beer savvy, though they serve food alright. Solid selection of their own beers, some Canadian micros, and international favourites. Good food and not expensive at all. Other than the Grad Club, this is the place to be for beer fans in Kingston.
