A local favourite

Posted on 01 / 23 / 2015

Brewery Bay is probably the most popular local restaurant in Orillia and it boasts many vegetarian options.

I haven't been back since going vegan, but from what I know of Brewery Bay they would gladly accommodate and I hope to confirm that for myself soon!

The food has always been very delicious and the staff are very friendly. The one complaint about this place is that it can get noisy if it's even moderately busy.

Pros: Delicious food, Reasonable price, Friendly staff
Cons: Noisy when moderately busy

Lots of vegetarian options

Dined a few times here. Lots of veggie friendly choices. More like a roadhouse so pleasantly surprised with the healthy options.

Pros: Happy staff, Patio, Wheelchair access
Cons: A bit loud, A bit dark

Finally a Vegetarian Friendly Pub

Posted on 07 / 15 / 2012

Really enjoyed supper here with my flexitarian husband. It is like a sports bar with a restaurant side. Very veg head friendly as they call it since there are 45 choices for vegetarians! Most meals can be had in either meatatarian or vegetarian version. It is not fancy or gourmet, it is a kid friendly pub.

Pros: Friendly staff, , pretty presentation of food, Lots of choices for vegetarians
Cons: Not all vegetarian, Less choices for vegans

Not so bad

Posted on 10 / 03 / 2011

Came here on a Sunday night with my ladyfriend after having spent the weekend portaging.

It was quiet with a couple of drunks on the bar side of the restaurant and a couple of tables on the dining side including families with loud kids. A lot of booths were available.

It was darkly lit with hardwood floors, wooden tables and a brick wall. Classic rock played throughout the meal.

We, being vegans, ordered three of the few items that didn't require cheese to make the meal: deep-fried pickles (sans the creamy dressing, with a cajun sauce instead), buffalo-style veggie fingers and a 'gourmet' veggie burger.

The deep-fried pickles were fantastic: juicy, massive and greasy. The veggie fingers were identified as Gardein. They came out cold and way too soft, but were flavourful. The burger tasted like Yves, and came with roasted eggplant and red peppers on a ciabatta bun. Very satisfying.

Pretty pricey. Our meal, with a pitcher of beer, came out to $57 before tip.

The server didn't know what a vegan was, but the chef did, and now she does, too!
