    Made a visit to be part of the viewing of The Great Canadian Pottery Throwdown. Great to support a local artist on the big tube. Loved the physical set up - old firehall with the trimmings - helmuts/ropes/ The creative signage was entertaining!!! And of course the beverage selection very fine!!!

    A must if you're passing through Kenora. Our server (Mary) was so funny and very attentive. The food was stellar.


    Sunday, August 6, 2023

    We have had great experiences here before, but this time it was a complete downer. We had a 20 minute wait, but that's alright, it's always busy on weekends. We were seated in the searing sun, and our table was 1 of 2 tables which didn't have the shade on it. We asked the person making wait lists and assigning tables if we could be moved to some other table, and got a nope, gotta go back and wait 30 more minutes. At that point we got ready to leave without ordering, but our server moved us to another table. But the service was so excruciatingly slow after that, and not once did we get checked on if we needed water or if the food was ok. I get it you are busy, but at least some semblance of service would have been nice. Very disappointing experience.

    I've visited this restaurant several times over the years, it's hard passing through and not stopping to eat. It's been a few years since stopping by and was told there's been some menu changes. I was excited to see my favourite dish re-introduced to the menu. I was disappointed with the service. As it picked up with patrons I understood with the servers inattentive service, until I seen both quick delivery of food from the kitchen and offer of drinks to be refilled for other tables, but not for ours. My food arrived cold and of a different portion size from the exact same choice for others at my table. Poor service, underwhelming food, and the blatant difference in attention given makes me question my opinion of this establishment. I'm sure you'll have a better experience but be warned.

  • Lakeside Kolsch

    Lakeside Kolsch takes its name from one of Kenora’s first neighbourhoods on famous Lake of the Woods.

Kenora’s waterways have floated everything from raw lumber & birch canoes to wood launches, steamboats & outboard tillers. Lakeside is brewed using old-world techniques which produces a crisp, clean ale characteristic of a lager. It is a delicate & subtle beer with hints of malt & fruit in its nose.

  • Nautical Disaster

    Style: IPA - American

    ABV: 7    IBU: 55

    To survive the six month journey by sea from Britain to her colonies in India in the late 1700s, a beer was developed that was robust enough to endure the trip without spoiling. Loaded with bitter hops and higher in alcohol, both of which helped preserve the beer... India Pale Ale (IPA) was born. Legend has it that giant squids, monstrous whales, sea serpents and multi-arm beasts sent many of the ships filled with barrels of IPA to a watery grave. A true Nautical Disaster.

  • Big Timber IPA

    Style: IPA - American

    ABV: 6    IBU: 60

    Dedicated to the larger than life men and women that helped forge the North American landscape. For all the lumberjacks, loggers, fellers and buckers... this beer’s for you. An unexpected bend to an American India Pale Ale, this non-traditional IPA has a depth of body and colour with an enormous floral/citrus hop aroma and a supporting malt profile. Keep on loggin’ on.

  • Firehouse

    Style: Brown Ale - English

    ABV: 4.8    IBU: 28

    It would only make sense for us to dedicate the name of the beer to our brewery and tap room location, a 104-year old firehall in downtown Kenora. A small amount of chocolate malt provides the colour and aroma of this amber coloured ale while the aftertaste is of almond and the finish is dry. English hop varieties are used although the balance is towards the malt.

  • Dead Man's Switch

    Style: IPA - New England / Hazy

    ABV: 6.8    IBU: 40

    The Thistles 1907 Stanley Cup win and the 1973 Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce bank robbery. Two landmark (and completely unrelated) events that have put our little town of Kenora on the proverbial “map”. Commemorating the surreal and movie-esque Main Street bank robbery is Lake of the Woods Brewing Company’s small batch release of Dead Man’s Switch New England style IPA – a hazy hop bomb loaded with enough Citra and Amarillo hops to fill a large duffel bag. Unlike the robbery this NEIPA may not shut down the Trans-Canada Highway with its release, however it will leave you gobsmacked feeling like you just walked onto a movie set, and you and Dead Man’s Switch are the stars of the show. Small batch available at the brewery and select bars & restaurants. #makeitlaketime #hopbomb #NEIPA

  • The Beer With No Name

    Style: Fruit Beer

    ABV: 6    IBU: 23

    Nicknamed 'Joe' and 'Blondie'- the Beer With No Name raspberry ginger ale is perfect brew for cheers'N'pals on the dock at camp... or quenching your thirst on date night while binge watching Sergio Leone Spaghetti Westerns.

More like all good, no bad, and beauty in the eye of the beholder. The beer with no name coming to a glass near you.

  • Sneaky Peach

    Style: Fruit Beer

    ABV: 5.2    IBU: 50

    Put there by a man in a factory downtown, Sneaky Peach Pale is a big nose smooth finishing Ale - deliciously delectable and deceivingly drinkable. Did you know? Peaches are symbols of immortality (don't mistake Sneaky for a Geldof, and definitely not ‘and Herb’); and super tasty in beer. Similar to the Mackinaw, Sneaky Peach is akin to ‘having a circus in your mouth’ and a little like being in a pie eating contest - to be experienced. Its peachy-keen!! (fruity/peachy/hoppy). Warning: Sneaky Peach may make you want to movin’ to the country…

  • Island Vibes - Passion Fruit Sour

    Style: Sour - Fruited

    ABV: 5    IBU: 5

    There is one thing that all islands have in common – the vibe of ‘island time’… Whether in the Caribbean, the Pacific or on the Lake; there is an unmistakable feeling one gets from setting foot on an island. No matter the time of year, the effort it takes to get there seems to slow down time-space and turns ‘chill’ into a viral attitude everyone is catching. Just the right sour & island fruit mind-meld with sand, relaxation and sun to really tie the room together. So get on a plane, or float your boat, catwalk your sled, or simply step across that bridge – and arrive, with Island Vibes.

  • Railyard Double Chocolate Porter

    Style: Porter - Other

    ABV: 4.5    IBU: 25

    Railways helped build the Americas – and the Porter was a drink of choice popular with transportation workers of Central London as far back as the 1700’s.

Hence Railyard Porter – a dark ale made with roasted chocolate malt and pure cocoa. Railyard Porter has a coffee and cocoa bitterness balanced with a deep, malty chocolate draw.
