On a visit to the “Distillery District”:https://www.silvertraveladvisor.com/review/attraction/164262-review-the-distillery-district a friend and I had lunch at “Mill St. Brewery”:http://millstreetbrewery.com/toronto-brew-pub/. I have eaten at the one in Terminal 1, Toronto Pearson International Airport before, but never at this one downtown.
Now, I’m not a beer drinker so that is definitely not the attraction for me. It is the food that got me in and keeps me going. With time to kill in-between flights it is a good spot to fuel up before getting on a plane. At the airport I’ve had chicken curry and fish and chips (Atlantic Haddock fried in original organic lager with fresh cut fries). Both were very good. Since the food and service at the airport venue has been consistently good, I decided to give the flagship restaurant a try. At this location I tried the spinach and strawberry salad with goat cheese and candied walnuts and my friend had crab and shrimp sliders. We were both happy with our choices as they were delicious.
The microbrewery produces a variety of ales, lagers and stout, some organic. If you want to you can take a tour of the brewery and/or take a seat near the inner windows and watch the brewing activity while you eat and/or drink.
Although they take reservations, we did not have one and had no trouble getting a table for lunch during the week.
There are also branches in St. John’s, Ottawa and Calgary.
