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.

We celebrated a colleague's birthday with lunch at Granite Brewery. They offer a diverse menu - something for everyone! All meals were served at the same time, everything was fresh, generously portioned and delicious. Our server was very friendly. We will definitely be back!

There's a reason I love The Granite so much and it's more than just the great beer! Not as close as I used to be but still consider this my local. As often as I am there I wish I could be there more.

We had a wonderful meal at the Granite Brewery. The Souvlaki Chicken Wrap was the best and the fish and chips enjoyed by another family member was superb! Our hostess Judy was a wonderful. We look forward to returning.

We've been to the Granite Brewery several times and have always been happy with the service and great food. We chose to have our birthday celebration here because we knew it'd be reliable and a great time for all. We also have vegans and vegetarians in our party and we knew they'd be able to find something to eat. Will always come back :)

Turns out they weren’t taking reservations for that day even though I was able to make a reservation and I also received a confirmation email. We ended up just having to put our name down when we got there and wait for a table

We booked a reservation online for two with the comment "date night", but no table for two was reserved for us when we got there. They were not full enough to require the reservation but going the extra step to have a table for two prepared for us in advance of two people randomly walking in goes a long way. Our reservation was for 630 but we were told by then their last steak for their steak special was already gone. We were offered a lesser cut of steak but for the same price. Overall the experience was good...mediocre...but not good enough.

Our server was quite helpful in recommending which beers would suit my tastes and which she would recommend to match the fish & chips I was planning on ordering. The fish was lovely and the Darkside Black IPA did pair with it nicely. Loved the relaxed atmosphere as well.

We had a wonderful experience as part of winterlicious. Great choices. A small part of the steak had some grizzle in it but otherwise ok. The server did warn my husband about the fruit for dessert with just reason. It was not fresh and tasted a bit off- he left most of it. The cheesecake was fantastic. Our server was wonderful and very attentive.
