I hven't really eaten there, but stopped a few times after group runs with a car club. They usually have a good selection of 12 beers on draft, and a good selection in their fridge for purchase. I like you can get sampler flights of beer. You can view the brewery from the pub room, but I have not taken a tour yet. Good beer, a bit noisy and good service. I usually try to stop by when I am in the area.

Came here with a group of friends for my bachelor party in Muskoka.

Tried the following:
Sawdust City & Arendals Little Norway (draft)
Sawdust City & Bar Hop Coriolis Effect (draft)
Sawdust City The Mountie (sample)
Sawdust City Lone Pine IPA (draft)

Beers ranged from good to excellent. Tap selection was large and varied with a wide spectrum of styles represented.

Bustling beer hall vibe in the taproom; a punk band was playing on our visit. We had fun taking pictures on the massive cottage chair out front. Patrons were very friendly and one of them bought me a beer when he found out I was getting married (much appreciated!).

Service was strong as we never had to wait long for drinks. Bartender also did a commendable job of describing the beers to everyone.

Beyond all of this, Sawdust City is one of the best breweries in Ontario, so I was pumped to finally visit the brewery. Thankfully, it did not disappoint.

Our overall experience was amazing, and I would happily come back. Recommended.

Our tour guide was wonderful! Very open and honest about the politics of being a craft brewery in Canada, but also very informative. Great selection and vibe; we will be back for sure!

Friendly, great beer, an interesting tour. No food but there is a 'gourmet' food wagon attached. Ordering is English style at the bar not at the table, we had waited a bit before we figured this one out ;-)

We visited Sawdust over Christmas 2016. They had an excellent selection of fresh brews to sample and a great selection for take away. Best feature was communal tables in tap room. Sawdust allows visitors to bring their own food. We brought charcuterie, cheese and Hop pickles. Had a great afternoon.

Worth a visit if you are in town. The tasting room is more like a bar in a large room with windows into the brewery. Our bartender was great and very attentive taking time to talk us through the dozen or more choices. The beer is good with some interesting choices and the food is from a gormet food truck outside that you can bring in (we didn't eat so can't comment). They're open late and often have live bands so definitely worth a try.
