Service was great and the pub food was up to standard, it was a bit loud in there but I guess that is what you should expect in a pub.

Great local pub. It has local brews and the usuals. I enjoy going here for a late lunch or early dinner. The food is delicious. Some so the meat comes from the neighbour restaurant "Meat"

We met our two university kids for a late lunch at Next Act Pub on a Thursday afternoon, we were promptly seated (a busy place for 2 in the afternoon). Our waitress was awesome, she was very knowledgeable on the menu and beer selections. As our family has eclectic tastes we sampled everything from burgers to vegetarian options and all... More

The burgers here are awesome!! They always have a special burger which is usually some interesting flavors that turn out delicious. The veggie burger is amazing. And even the gluten free buns are good! They have a great beer selection, cool vibe, and are even open for weekend brunch. Highly recommend checking it out!

The Next Act is my go-to pub in Edmonton. It's perfectly located just off Whyte in the theatre district, and has great prices for a small but excellent selection of delicious food and craft beer. The burgers are top-notch and their vegetarian options are very good. Hooray for vegan gravy! The booths are comfy, and the atmosphere is warm and... More

The atmosphere of this joint rules. Old movies playing on a few vintage tvs, retro booths, relaxed vibes from the servers, cute lil patio in summer too. The food is high quality pub style, hearty and tasty featuring offerings from next door MEAT. Great beer selection too. Ideal for drinks and snacks with friends, or a casual date!

I've been coming to The Next Act regularly over the past 5 years and it has never once disappointed! Food, drink selection, atmosphere and service are consistently excellent. Their menu is almost entirely sandwiches, burgers and salads, but it certainly isn't what you would typically call "pub food" (you can take it from me, I don't like pub food!). Ultimately... More

It's owned by the same people that run Meat but has a very limited menu. We tried to get in to Meat on a Saturday night and gave up because of the line up. Decided to try the Next Act because it is right next door. Much easier to get in but it is more of a pub than a... More

The 4 of us snagged a booth (pretty tight when you include coats and purses) on a cool snowy afternoon. It was busy, but the service was excellent. The server was very knowledgeable about beers available. His recommendation for my husband was spot on. We ordered a variety of food; burgers, brisket donair, wings and other than some minor complaints... More

I love this place. The servers are super friendly and authentic... and they aren't required to wear a skin tight mini dress and kitten heels. The beer selection is awesome and they are really knowledgeable about what they carry. Love the atmosphere and the food is decent.
