We found this place by mistake as it is on a side street. We went in and thought we'd sit inside, however they have an outdoor courtyard in the back which one of the waiters took us to. We enjoyed ourselves so much we decided to have dinner there instead of the many restaurants that line the main street. We were there for a few hours of fun and people watching. Should have gone there the second night as the restaurant we choose we weren't happy with Anyway the Kingston Brewing Co was a winning in our eyes.

When I lived in Kingston, this place was a regular stop of mine, I really liked their pale ale and found the food quite good. In a half a dozen return visits since then, I have found the pale ale is not as good since being outsourced, though every waitress/waiter says it tastes the exact same as always. I've found that the food is middle of the road for pub food. Portion sizes are shrinking and the specials always seem to disappoint in taste.

Go for the beer. Our waitress told us that many British people claim it's the closest thing they have tasted to real ale in Ontario. This was our experience too. The interior was very atmospheric whilst the front outside seating had a good view of the lake. The food was fairly average, particularly the fish and chips. My vegetarian pasta was rather rich in nuts though still very tasty. If you want a fine dining experience this is not the place, but if you are looking for good value with real ales on tap and a lively atmosphere then this fits the bill.

Great meal for lunch. Very filling soup of the day (curry cauliflower) and pulled por sandwich. Enjoyed their house cider.

Great atmosphere. Great location. Great brews. I've been here several times with groups of friends and to cap off a date. It's a really relaxed place but they take their beer seriously. For a beer connoisseur visiting Kingston, this place is a must.
