Were here last night for a small birthday get together. Was surprised to see the number of people on a Monday night . I figure this alone is a good sign. The beer menu here the best in town. If you cannot decide what to have try their sampler board. Our waiter suggested we start with the dumplings (12 which... More

Love the intimate feel and decor of this place. Open kitchen that you can see in. The menu is very unique and reasonably priced for great food. Our waiter was fantastic with giving suggestions from the extensive beer list to also helping narrow down our meal. I would not have picked but thanks to him the Vegetable Pancake. It was... More

Mercer has an extensive beer list ... We decided to sit at the bar to better see he selection. The bartender who helped us was fantastic! Incredibly knowledgable and happy to chat with us and help us make some selections. The decor is beautiful ... Really a casual yet upscale feel that is very welcoming and relaxing. We had the...

Enjoyed lunch here on a Saturday and was very impressed. They have a very large, but well organized beer list - it was easy to find what we were looking for, The food is gastro pub, but with a really interesting hit of asian flavors. The 'bowls' are very good. We'd go back for sure !

We came to Mercer Hall about 9PM on a Thursday night and had their late night bar menu - very good. An ample food selection was available to compliment their vast selection of tasty craft bears. The waiter said the kitchen is open to 12:00 Wednesday to Saturday. There are few spots in Stratford to make this claim expecialy one... More

The menu options include items you won't find anywhere else. We stuck with known items, a hamburger and chicken wings, which were delicious. This time of year, a lot of restaurants in Stratford are either closed for the season or have limited hours, so choices of restaurants are slim for dinner, but you won't be disappointed with Mercer.

We visited this restaurant because my husband has celiac disease and they have many gluten free items on their menu. While the server tried to be helpful he was not knowledgeable about food allergies/sensitivities. The fryer is shared, the gf pulled pork bowl had "a little bit" of gluten in it and the gluten free beer they serve is labelled... More

Walked into this place and the decor was fantastic. Expectations were set high!! A little too high. The menu was hard to read, way too many options to choose from. Regardless, we choose a couple of dishes and were rather disappointed. Not just me but my friends were not overjoyed with their meals. One being a vegan. There was a... More

Went there with another couple for dinner and was seated just passed food prep area by washrooms and found it very busy with staff and people going by all the time. Lighting was very dark and food was just ok. Service was a little slow.
