Easily accessible location by the Levis ferry terminal. There is a small side patio that looks back over the Saint-Laurent river and the old town of Quebec City. The beers are English style and not too shabby, but not great. There is a tasting paddle available. Food is basic snacks like chips and nachos. Service was pretty good considering there was one waitress tending to everyone. There is a popular bike and skate path running along the pub, so it makes a great pit-stop for cyclists to get refreshments. It was funny to watch everyone arrive trying to score a seat on the patio (it was busy) to catch what little sunshine was hitting the deck. I can’t blame them, the winter must be brutal for the Québécois.
Visited Aug-2011. The place was playing mellow funk music, has huge ceilings, and you can see the brewing equipment. We ate a pretzel, a meat pizza, and tried 10 of their brews (2 samplers) -- all fairly decent. Smokey patio was annoying but inside was pretty fun overall.

Endroit très bien située sur le bord du fleuve, facile d’accès. Bonne ambiance, endroit assez grand, le service est correct. Sélection correct de bière. Bière standard rien a couper le souffle. Endroit respectable pour les lieux physiques et l’ambiance!
Très bonne place, très bien située. Le service est excellent, serveur très courtois et intéressés à vous conseiller. Terrasse offrant une superbe vue sur Québec. Produits très intéressants, endroit à retourner
They recently moved next door, I preferred the ambiance of the old place, it was some kind of a pirate’s bar. Now it just looks...new. But whatever great beer, great people, great music (sometimes too loud though). They always have 5 to 10 beers, a lot of different styles, everyone can find something they like.
Very first brewpub I went to in my life, thus it still holds a special place in my heart.
It’s located right next to the ferry, across the river from Quebec City, thus you get a picture perfect view of the city when looking out the window or from the "terrasse" on the parking lot in the back. Frontenac Castle and all. Great sight in the summer.
They have quite an acceptable selection, depending on the season, Fall definitely being the best time to stop by Le Corsaire. Their beer in general is quite tasty, I have a soft spot for their darker ales (stout, porter, brown ale to name a few).
Not quite the place to go to for quality food, as most of it is just frozen products heated.
Biggest problem of the brewpub: the volume of music inside when one goes at night. Barman needs to learn that most people come to brewpubs to enjoy a few glasses and have a chat with their friends, not get deafened until they practically beg to be kicked out.
2011-08-08. Looks like a corporate building from the street. Spacious bar area is pretty nice, airy high ceilings with pub like decor. Menu is limited but tasty. Pretzel is massive, pizzas surprisingly good. Server is very friendy and helpful, and her English is great despite her protests. Patio has great views of Quebec City but people were smoking so we opted to stay inside. Nice little spot.
Visited on a Monday evening. Very pretty brewpub located in an old government building, right by the St-Lawrence river with a view on Quebec City on the other side. The pub itself is spacious with good seating. They have ten tap lines (9 beers and one cider) as well as 2 casks (handpump). We had good service, even though they were understaffed for the amount of people there. The food is quite basic (no kitchen) but good and affordable. Decent value overall, not exactly cheap but in the right range. A pleasurable experience.
The decor of this place is great and it is very spacius, The locoation is the negetive part for me. As for the beer selection it is good with a nice variety. The food was good and tasty, it was the presentation that was not that great. The staff was very friendly, would I go again , yes.
