The Brassie has become a "hub" for Ancaster's residents to socialize, relax and enjoy each other's company. There is something for everyone... poker nights, karaoke, trivia tournaments, Sunday brunch, party share plates, fancy dinners..
I've been to the Brassie countless times and have never left disappointed. The waiting staff are friendly and attentive, even when they are packed. Despite the occasional wait to catch a waiter's eye to ask for a refill, I have no complaints about the service. One thing that always stands out to me is the owner. Whenever I see him, he is greeting customers, constructively supporting his staff and doing spot checks of meals. Last week he came over to our table, asked how our meal was and offered us more of our side dish. A great example of someone who cares about his business and reputation.
The food at the Brassie is pretty good - it's pub food but with a nicer touch. If you feel like something greasy, there is always the "heart attack in a basket" team platter to share, but many healthy options as well. The menu is suited to all ages, events and outing types. You can enjoy a nice dinner for two or share a plate of greasy pub food over a pitcher with friends.
I love the Brassie because it feels like a great community location - after a while you really start to notice familiar faces.
