We just wanted a place to get a snack and drinks after our road trip, and this place had $12 (plus or minus $1) liters of craft beer so we couldn't say no. They had at least 25 local beers on draft and the pork rinds were really good too (BBQ is what we tried). Bar tender was really nice... More

Stopped in for a drink before dinner. Nice beer list with some unique options. Had the poutine and loved it. Great ambiance for casual drinks/dining.

Extensive craft beer list laid out for novice or experienced drinkers to easily consume. All of the servers have legitimate knowledge of the beers and often offer up suggestions based on personal preferences. The menu is small for a reason...because everything is amazing. Mussels in white wine broth sleeping under a blanket of crispy fries that are topped with garlic... More

Since four of us had eaten at a restaurant on King Street, Closed for Business was conveniently located for us to enjoy a beer after dinner. Although it was very busy, we found a table right at the back and their extensive list of draft beers made our selections quite easy.

Low key restaurant and bar. Husband got chicken sandwich with fries. Really liked. I got veggie burger with green beans. Loved the green beans.

Thought it was awesome to be able to find a seat on a Friday night! Great beer list. Ordered the mussels when the are served they have poutine fries on top of them. Very odd combo. You have to eat through fries to get to the mussels, mussels are known for the broth they are cooked in. The cheese on... More

Looked for anything open on a Friday morning -- stopped in to meet friends and have a drink or two before heading to Wine and Food festival. Great bartender, amazing beer list and just a cool place. Loved the bar decorations - food looked great but we had a long day ahead so two drinks was all we enjoyed. Definitely... More

How can you not love the name! Great beer list! We had a great time here, had a few appetizers and more than a few beers (and saved the coasters!)

Restaurant recommended. Glad we went. Small restaurant with bar seating and couches. Tables lounge. There is no one under 21 at bar though. Craft brewery. We were drinking. Sat in dining area. I think our waiters name was Aaron. Top notch. We choose fish and chips. Beer battered. Homemade sauce. Oh my gosh. Best I'd ever had. Hands down. Walking... More
