The new Mill Street brewpub is pretty impressive, definitely the biggest one in Toronto.

The room is very large with high celings. Exposed brick walls, old timey oversized chandeliers and a wooden cieling with iron frames give this place a vintage feel. To the left of the entrance is the brewing area ensconced in glass. To the right is the long bar.

On tap there are about a 10 Mill Street brews, all the usual suspect: Stock Ale, Tankhouse Ale, Coffee Porter and also a wide variety of seasonals and tap onlies like Pilsner, IPA, ESB, Raspberry Plambic and Helles Bock. There has been a cask ale on offer the last 3 times I visited, and each time it was pretty underwhelming.

The food good for pub fare, I had coconut shrimp to start and a pulled pork sandwich last night. It was good but the pulled pork could have been better. The service is generally very good, though sometimes it takes a long time to get a waiter's attention.

I like this place a lot and recommend it. If only they had guest taps. I like half of the Mill Street beers, but variety is always good.

Visit this place.

Sprawling place in the distillary districr, the original Mill Street. Has now become a chain and is owned by Labbats. Still, the atmosphere is good, the beer acceptable if not distinguished and the food and service both good.

As plenty of others have mentioned, this place is in the middle of the Distillery District, which is kitschy as kitschy can be - especially if you happen to visit during the Christmas market, which my girlfriend and I did. This means Mill St. tends to be crowded, and that crowd tends to be raucous - even on a Thursday evening. If you're looking for somewhere relatively quiet, this is not for you. Service seems to be hit or miss - our experience seated indoors was subpar, while our experience at the outdoor bar was good. The food is a bit pricey, and is not quite up to the standards one might expect for the price point.

Regarding the beer, this is not a brewery that caters to the hophead crowd - which means that I rather enjoyed their beers. There was an assortment of lagers and porters, most of which were all right, a couple of which were rather tasty. I'd return on my next stop in Toronto, but just to have a beer or three.

Mill Street can be found amidst the very touristy Distillery District, an interesting block of early 20th Century building that have been converted to stores, shops, galleries and eateries, of which Mill Street is one. It is very busy, loud and raucous. Maybe you'll get served and maybe you will not. My first attempt was at the indoor bar, where I just got stares from the bartenders. After 15 minutes of watching others drink beer, I went out to the patio bar and all was well. If you can endure the noise, the buzz and the chain atmosphere, you can enjoy yourself with decent beer and hearty grub. While I do not see myself going here again, I would seek out heir beer.

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.
