The Lion Brewery Restaurant

Quality Food and Hand Crafted Brews


Housed where the original brewery operated, you can't help but be enchanted with the Lion Brewery Restaurant's original stone walls and floor, as well as the unique caverns. Enjoy excellent food paired with a selection of craft beers that are brewed on-premises.


Experience the Lion Brewery Restaurant with seating for 200, open concept kitchen and space for private functions in the grains room and the Cavern Wine Celler. We offer classic cuisine and 10 handcrafted brews made on-premise.


The Lion Brewery Restaurant first opened in 1986 as a small deli kitchen - soups, salads and sandwiches. Since then we have completed a couple of major restorations, including the excavation of the buried malted grains room and the Cavern Wine cellar.


The Lion Brewery Restaurant features a 37' long wooden bar and a cozy fireplace, flagstone floors, and a rich view of the past. Not only are the original walls of Christopher Huether's own brewery visible, but the restaurant also features memorabilia highlighting the history of the brewing industry.


The main area of the Lion Brewery Restaurant, with seating for 100, has low ceilings, stone floors and walls and is completed with crafted woodwork and trim. Our open concept kitchen provides a visual experience to enjoy our chefs creating classic cuisine made with quality and fresh ingredients for our guests to enjoy.

The grains room seats 64 people for dining, including private functions. The Lion Brewery Restaurant also showcases the newly renovated cavern, a space which historically was used to age the beer that was brewed in the late 1800s. It now seats 40 people and also can be used for private functions.


Come and enjoy a meal, and relax with friends while sipping on one of our 10 handcrafted brews made on-premise, made from all-natural quality ingredients. Also serving Imports Beers, such as Heineken, Corona, Becks, Stella and a variety of coolers.

The Jazz Room


The Jazz Room is a sizzling night club dedicated to the best in jazz music presentation. Home to the Grand River Jazz Society (GRJS), the club has a dual mandate to support exceptional musicians from our own community and to invite talent from elsewhere for local audiences to hear.


The Jazz Room is located on the main floor dining lounge adjacent to the lobby and Café 1842; just follow the sound of the grand piano, sax or classic sound of a trumpet.


We offer a full food and bar menu for eating and sipping on your favourite scotch or glass of wine. Doors open for dining at 7 pm. Listen to some light jazz during dinner before the main show at 8:30 PM.


Tickets can be purchased in advance from the Lion Brewery Restaurant during regular business hours.


This room is one of the oldest in the Hotel; when John Adlys purchased the Hotel in 1953, a 7 oz glass of beer was only 5 cents -- he had to sell 40 beers to have $2.00 in sales. There is a dark stained oak panel throughout, tin ceilings, and a beautiful oak bar that is accented with stained glass backlit panels; restored Teraso floors are also a nice feature in this room. A custom stage was engineered to support a full size black grand piano which is a permanent fixture.


Every Friday and Saturday evening there are live Jazz entertainers playing to a sold-out crowd most weekends. Friday evening local jazz entertainers take the stage, the quality is outstanding. On Saturday evenings entertainers are brought in from Vancouver, Toronto and New York City. You can view The Jazz Room website to see a Calendar of Events.
