EDIT - MAY 2012: popped in here with the lady after viewing some apartments and I couldn’t believe that the Blueberry Wheat was the only specialty/one-off available. Grabbed a growler of the Paradise IPA and it tasted like a weak English bitter. I’ve lowered my score significantly.
2009 Review - Had another wonderful evening here on my most recent visit to the city.
VIBE: a spacious bar and restaurant area greet you at the door, seating accommodates groups of two, four, or larger. At this time of year there's Christmas lights dangling throughout the establishment, which adds a bit of cheer to the atmosphere. Crowd is a diverse mix of young couples, beer geeks, older folks, tourists, and locals. The number of wine drinkers suggests that people actually come here for something other than the beer!
SERVICE: just okay. Our waitress seemed busy and distracted, she might've had too many tables. Nevertheless, the food arrived quickly. We got our drinks in reasonable time by grabbing the attention of other servers.
SELECTION: this being a brewpub, the beer list is all of Mill Street's offerings. I tried the Roggenbier, ESB, and Helles Bock, the latter of which I had to settle for because the waitress told me - erroneously - that the Weizenbock was not available. I enjoyed all three beers and my girlfriend found a wine of her liking.
FOOD: excellent quality. With such a large menu you'd figure something would suck, but all of our stuff was very tasty. I'd recommend the Coffee Porter ribs, good smokiness and spice, drenched in BBQ sauce, with a bit of slaw on the side.
OVERALL: based on this last visit, we will definitely come back to Mill Street on future trips to Toronto. Despite the mediocre service, this brewpub has a great vibe, awesome beer and food, and solid value. A gem on the T.O. beer scene.

Stopped in for a beer and bite. Wanted to try a brew house looking for something off the radar. Didn't find much here.
Same offering as the LCBO and The Beer Store. WAY expensive food and beer. Not much flavor and it's pretty much a crush you in and turn the seats over ASAP and you get that feeling
Not for me again.
