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.

Mercer has gone through a lot of changes over the past year, but have come out great. Food was excellent, we had the white fish bowl and steamed pork bun, selection of beer is outstanding but my only slight is the little amount actually on tap. If your going to sell yourself on being a beer house, 12 on tap... More

Mike R, Thanks for your comments. We truly appreciate all feedback from our guests, especially locals. We have put a lot of effort into this inception of Mercer and we tried to provide Stratford, as a community, with a place that they could get the best that Ontario craft beer has to offer. Now while we plan to continue to... More

Friends visited on Monday night and we slipped to one of my favourite restaurants in town. We had some dietary needs for one of my friends and Chef Jesse Way was outstanding. We had a delightful parsnip soup, followed by a flavourful risotto with smokey carrot taste, and then we shared a mushroom rice bowl, vegetarian burger and fries and... More

I didn't do my research before visiting Stratford last Saturday. When it was lunchtime we settled upon Mercer's and should have known when we entered that it wouldn't be for us. In that great sea of tables we were expected to seat ourselves which I found rather odd. It was all rather dark and dreary. It was busy and therefore... More

Went tonight for my birthday dinner, and we were all so delighted with our dinner! Was our first time to this establishment, and we will be back. Our server was very knowledgeable and the food was top notch. A great mix of eclectic flavors. Not a restaurant for the bland pallet, which I was happy to enjoy. Thanks for the... More

I wanted to give this restaurant a better rating but it just lost out in a few places. First, what put me off when I entered was the place was empty. No one seated and yet the hostess selected a table right beside the wait staff servery. Really? I asked if we could sit anywhere else and this is where... More
