Went here last night...
Walking up, really cool looking place, good outside seating area. During busy time they have you wait in line just to get to the host, who is also working as a server, so we waited ten minutes until we even knew what the deal was. You're also not allowed to even go to the bar as you wait. Once we got approached the hostess was really nice and got us seated at the bar within five minutes.
Once at the bar, really cool inside area, also has an upstairs and is all in viewing area of the brewery which looks to be a 10bbl system. On tap is mostly house beers, I had a the Witch IPA and the Brett american Pale Ale, both good. Buddy had a the Grizzly Brown and Stout, both good. We ordered the meat plate which was great. Ordered the buffalo chicken sausage, which was a little small but very good and spicy. After those two plates we ordered the flat iron steak, which took over 25 minutes to cook and we eventually cancelled it. That's when the waitress started giving us some lip.
Overall, I'd go back and try again on a less busy night. Place stays open till midnight every day.
SIDE NOTE: Good bottle selection, a lot of belgians, some sours, some saisons. Bottle Shop is cool too.

Tried samples of all of the Bellwood's beers and though there were a few that were quite good on the whole they were under attenuated, muddled, and dull. Some were not good at all. The bottle list was not bad and it is nice to have Westie 12 on the list. The great variety of beers they make seems to have prevented them thus far from taking the time to iterate and master any one beer in particular. Hopefully that will change in the future.
The place itself is insanely noisy, crowded and unpleasant.

I came here on a business trip and was pleasantly happy with my experience. Small bar and a few tables, food was limited, a lIttle pricey for the mains, but very well done and tasty. I only had snacks, but the oxtail the guy next to me ordered smelled fantastic. The beers are the star though. All the house brews were phenomenal, and there was an extensive bottle selection as well. The shop next door sells bottles to go. If I come back to Toronto I will definitely be back. Highly recommended, any my co-workers suck for not coming with me.
