“Should be a beer slinging tavern rather than a fine dining restaurant”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

Great looking bar but after that this is one bad eating establishment. The decor is cheap, the layout and lighting more suitable to a cafeteria, the server dresses as if working in a pub slinging beer and the food is unrecognizable. As for the wine list, the word swill comes to mind. The owners should really considered what their hospitality experience is, then with that experience refocus the restaurant to a cheap beer and burger type establishment

“Used to be better...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

My Husband and I used to dine at The Other Brothers every year for my birthday. The service is always wonderful... by far the best in Guelph... however, the menu is always the same! We always go in the fall, so I am not sure if they change the menu seasonally, but even still, they should put new items on the menu from year to year. I eventually got board with the menu so this past year we went elsewhere. We were also VERY dissapointed with their other restaurant, York Road Kitchen. If you've never dined at the Other Brothers before, though, the food is delicious and VERY flavourful.

“Inconsistent over valued”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014 via mobile

Have been about 1/2 doz times, sometimes good sometimes below average. Very disappointed in the Chefs tasting menu, very pedestrian and over priced!

“other brothers.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2014

We had friends with us that day and the service was slow. We had asked about foods whether or not they were cooked in fish or peanut oils. It took for ever to get a response and if deserts were peanut free or not. For the price we paid we would expect faster service and a quick answer to our questions.
