I really enjoyed my visit to this brewpub and highly recommend it. It has a very nice facility located on the river with some fine views. The beers were all good or better and offered good variety for limited (6 taps?) selection. Very good to excellent food that is attractively served with pride. Plenty of parking. There's a beer store around back that sells growlers and canned 6 packs.

Lovely little pub on the water just outside Wolfville.

Restrained, chic de or, with only a hint of nautical elements. Thank god it's not another overdone port-themed restaurant, NS has more than enough. Simple decor some bright colours and local art grace the walls, with comfy chairs and dark wood tables. Feels modern, which is a nice change of pace for this type.of place.

Food is above average pub food (though i'm not sure it quite lives up to the gastropub title) and the beer is well crafted.and fresh. Nice that it features local ingredients in both cuisine and beer wherever possible. Good variety in the all-year beers, and some nice variation with the seasonals (including a collaboration with Halifax brewery Propeller during last year's hop harvest).

Service was pleasant and generally efficient, though food seemed to.come out from the kitchen a bit slowly.

Four regularly available beers on tap, one seasonal, and an extra draft-only raspberry wheat was.available during my visit. Good wine list with lots of the local wineries' offerings available, but no other beer on tap or bottle.

Food was nice, with a few flaws. Points for local ingredients, but was surprised to see mass produced french fries alongside my burger. My partner's panini was tasty, though a bit unbalanced and soggy.

Good value and worth trying. Beer does beat out the food at this point.
