This place is friggin huge. Stopped in after wandering around the main drag of Gastown on Water St. Thereís the main bar when you enter, the patio, the main dining room, a downstairs dining room and a downstairs bar. Holy moly. To get to the bathrooms is like navigating a maze.

In any event, the place itself felt a little bit like a perhaps slightly classier Rock Bottom (to use a reference to something Iím familiar with here in the US). They had about 8 beers on tap which includes 4 regulars, some seasonals, and some specials. The beer quality wasnít great. But it was decent, I guess.

Service at the bar was really friendly and was pretty on top of it. In the dining room was a bit slow. The pricing is pretty decent compared to other places. Food isnít cheap, but you get a pretty good portion.

Stopped in here for dinner with the family. Ate downstairs, where there were big wood beams and views out over the train tracks and the harbor. Food was above average; beer was below average but overall a fun place with good service and nice atmosphere.

Great location, huge place, friendly staff are pluses. A generic sports bar feel, & average beers are the minuses. A decent place plus the attached bottle shop seemed alright.

Popular place with a good portion tourists because of its central location on Water St. Not much of an atmosphere but excellent service and a pretty cool microbrewery in the cellar. They only serve their own beer, of which they had 9 on tap when I visited. Food was good, the beers ranging from boring to decent. Visited: 2014-07-16.

Great place for a group for dinner and drinks. All the steam works beers on tap, one of the better breweries around Van. Had a massive feed called the íexpense accountí and beers cant complain about this place.

I thought the quality of beer here was set higher than many other BC brews I tried. No doubt itís overly touristy and loud here but I didnít mind the one visit. The chick behind the bar was great. Didnít eat so canít comment on that. Convenient to hit first when staying central.

Nice place with big patio right by waterfront station with view of Canada ave or whatever it is. Beer is ok. Taster flights are cheap at $7. Nice for a quick stopover.

A corporate feel and only above average beers. Worth visiting but if pushed for time head for the nearby Alibi for better choice, quality and atmosphere!

Visited here when we arrived in Vancouver on a rainy Saturday afternoon. The place was fairly crowded but we didnít have to wait for a table. There is a large bar area on the right, a large restaurant area on the left, and more tables and a bar in the basement. There is also a patio that had heaters blasting. Ten taps, and the two beers we tried were both very good. The place is well-staffed, and our waiter was very friendly. The food was solid but overpriced. Overall, this is a very solid brewpub that seems to be a bit underrated. Definitely worth a visit if youíre spending some time in Vancouver.
