Meet the owner

In Canada’s largest city, where everyone walks fast, talks fast and even eats fast, the local pub is a welcome refuge from the daily grind. Granite Brewery is that small slice of sanity in North Toronto.

A family friendly British-style pub, Granite Brewery has been packing them in since 1991 when veteran pub master Ron Keefe first opened its doors for business. Not only is it family friendly, it’s family operated. Ron’s son Sam (pictured above) is the marketing manager, while Sam’s sister and brother are the brewers.

To explain why Granite Brewery is so popular, Sam sums it up in two words: great beer. Proud of the fact that they’ve been making craft beers long before they became trendy, Sam points out that with 14 beers on tap and 25 beer recipes regularly brewed, the neighbourhood brew pub has attracted a loyal following of customers for over two decades. Pretty impressive given that the immediate area boats a half dozen other English themed pubs.

Granite Brewery Rock Solid

We've been to the Granite Brewery a number of times as the food is always fantastic with generous portions. In addition to the delicious food, they have a good selection of their own brews. We especially enjoyed their Ringwood, a delightful blonde. There are different atmospheres for different tastes, but at the Granite Brewery they have several to choose from. Two excellent patios, a bar, and a family restaurant area, all designed for comfort. The rear patio looks particularly amazing, but as it was raining, we'll just have to wait until next time to try it out. It should also be noted that the Granite Brewery has free parking with easy access. The Granite Brewery gets our highest recommendation and we will be back soon.

I go to Granite often and always receive a warm welcome and the best service. The servers are well trained and attentive. As for the food the drink aspect, they do pub food very well, I wouldn't expect fine dining from them. The beer is brewed on-site and is made in a traditional English style. This means the beer is not carbonated and is served only slightly chilled. I always love going to granite, The patio is amazing in the summer and the fire is toasty in the winter.

The service was slow and I didn't receive my RARE steak until more than an hour and a half when everyone in my party had all but finished. I politely asked for the entire time for a glass of water and no-one had the time-finally the manger explained that they cannot give everyone water as they don't have enough glasses. (The restaurant was at one-third capacity) However she did give me a glass of water and took the inedible soup off the tab as they would not make another one-as they said it was not freshly made-it's already prepared and packaged. I wasn't surprised as the vegetables are all frozen or canned. The washroom had not been cleaned and there was a mess in one of the stalls. The waitress laughed when I told her and shrugged. Funnily enough, the Restaurant Decor is rather nice and the location is ideal. I was impressed that they offered free underground parking for their patrons however given the other factors I will not return.

Service was great at the start - enjoyed the meal and beer, but at the end we seemed to have been forgotten and it was quite a while before we could even get a check to pay, which left us a little bit disappointed. It was also quite loud.

We were looking forward to this dinner as we wanted to have again the wings, which I remembered to be awesome from an earlier visit. While they were still huge, like the first time, all 3 pounds we ordered came grossly overcooked. Either that, or for some reason they were very dry and chewy. All three people at the table that tried them had exactly the same comment, so it was definitely not a subjective impression. We were struck by the renovations, definitely made the place look a bit better than before, however we also thought the lighting could have been turned down a bit. It felt we were in some banquet hall.

We went for Winterlicious 2017 and were...underwhelmed. Our reserved table was right beside the door and, even though there was a half wall, we were cold the entire time. The food was lackluster. For the appetizers, I had the mushroom and goat cheese salad, which is something I could have put together myself. My boyfriend ordered the bacon-wrapped jalapenos; he was very disappointed when he only got two. The main course was sup-par; we both got the smoked prime rib. For some reason, they gave one of us a sweet potato or pumpkin (couldn't tell which) mash. Although dessert was on the small side, it tasted fine. It would have been nice to know prior to going that Granite provides free parking for customers; spent $5 at the GreenP.
