“Dropped in to see the Netherlands play Argentina in the World Cup Semifinals on a beautiful sunny afternoon. Nice ambiance with big garage doors opening to outside seating. Four beers on tap, available as a flight. Decent brews. A really welcome surprise in the craft beer desert of NW Ontario.“

“Based on earlier comments, reviews and things I’ve heard, it seems like the place is constantly improving. They’ve added seasonals, which is great, and the service was fairly good. Also, all of the food was quite tasty and well-priced. We called ahead and got a tour, which ended with samples of the not-yet-filtered new IPA seasonal they were brewing.“

“I was here last year. I remember it being a waste of time. Dull macros. That’s it. Don’t bother with this one.“

“The last time I was hear in 2013 the service, especially the reception at the door, was not great. However, this has improved, as has the selection of beers available. I definitely recommend this spot in Kenora.“

“Dreadful selection. Load of macros. This is in proximity to the Kenora LCBO and Lake of the Woods Brewing Company - stick to those choices when in Kenora. This place is not worth even stepping inside.“

“Pretty horrible selection, much worse than a typical government liquor store in Manitoba. They had a bunch of beer but almost all pale lagers from around the world, and lots of macros. Only about 4-5 that you could consider craft beer: Muskoka Mad Tom, Flying Monkeys and Fullers London Porter. Otherwise a lot of junk.“

“Cool atmosphere in an old fire station, including the fire poles. Service was a bit disorganized but friendly. We tried the grilled cheese sandwiches which were pretty good. The beers are pretty basic, but the Amber is quite nice and apparently, eventually, they’ll do seasonals. Growlers are available, as well as quite a bit of merchandise. Overall not bad for a small town in Northern Ontario.“

“They’ve got their 3 own beers... which are average. A few macro taps as well. Good food and service. Nothing too pricey either.“

“Updated rating: Service has improved considerably, as has the food. Could do with a few more draft selections, but nice to see that the kinks are being ironed out. Converted firehall brewpub. Ambiance is pretty cool. It has kind of a vintage feel and the ability to open the entire place up on nice days is beneficial. The service was relatively quick, but completely disorganized. At least three different servers thought they were working our table, while some tables weren’t getting served at all (the place was only at 1/3 full at the time). There was a ton of staff on the floor, but no one seemed to know what they were doing. The food was solid, but nothing special. The house beer is mediocre at best, and the few other choices were limited. It’s still early days, but there is clearly LOTS of room for improvement.“

“Nice looking place, friendly but not attentive staff. A large selection of bad to mediocre European lagers. A few hidden gems when I was there like Harvieston and St.Ambroise.“

“For an LCBO in the middle of nowhere (200 kms east of Winnipeg) it has a fairly decent selection. While you won’t find any rare Belgians, you can make your time on Lake of the Woods more enjoyable with some fairly highly rated beers (St. Ambroise Oatmeal Stout, Fullars Porter, Anchor Liberty Ale, just to name a few).“
