I really really want to like this pub but their beer is 50/50 and food is almost always a miss. I still drop in a few times a year to sample a few beers and the ones that are good are amazing but most contain a funky aftertaste. I recommend trying it out but don't expect quality of other places... More

Late dinner on a Saturday was sweet potato poutine (generous serving, very tasty) and jambalaya (nice flavour, proteins overcooked). Decent prices, speedy and friendly service. Extra credit for an extensive menu available at 10 p.m. Loved their whiskey beer; California Common not so much. (Heavy on the bitter after-taste, light on the flavour.)

This was our third trip to Big Tide. Each time it has been outstanding. I do not remember our servers name but he was a young fellow with a beard. He was excellent. Prompt service and he really knew the menu and what he could substitute for us annoying vegans. I had the veggie burger and my wife had the... More

My boyfriend and I ate here last night and everything was great however there was a small hair in one of our appetizers. This was very quickly handled by Thomas who was fantastic as our server. He was apologetic and was very professional in offering compensation. Everything else tasted great. The sweet potato poutine was delicious (that gravy is AWESOME)... More

A group of us checked out the Big Tide over the weekend. Was quite impressed with the variety on the menu. Although there was quite a variety, I had a craving for a cheeseburger and it was great. I did their sampler for the beer which was a good variety. Would definitely go back and eat here again.

Our meals were perfect. Steaming hot, generously portioned and very tasty. Our waitress was excellent even though it was busy when we arrived. Thoroughly satisfying and highly recommended. We will be back

Visited with my mother while we were in town - we didn't know where to eat, but saw the very favourable rating on tripadvisor and figured since I wanted to try some local craft beer if I had the chance, why not kill two birds with one stone? Glad we made this choice - the food was great - a... More

One of our staples when doing a tour of the Uptown pubs, love it when pubs brew their own beer. Love the beer

We chose Big Tide because we love trying local brews, especially ales. Unfortunately for us they had no ale on tap the night we visited. It was also "trivia" night so it was crowded and uncomfortably loud. The food we ordered was average but nothing special, and the service was a bit disorganized and haphazard. It's unlikely we'll go back... More
