Big Ridge has a pub on one side and a restaurant on the other. Cold beer and wine store attached.
I like many was anxiously awaiting the opening of the new Big Ridge on 152nd in Surrey. We went with in the first week of opening and found the food to be OK, service & beer very good however the menu did lack some of the old favorites.
Whoever designed the restaurant must have come right out of restaurant design 101 where all the restaurants look the same. A place to welcome and wait, bar to the right and eating area to the left. This is supposed to be a brew pub not a Keg or any number of restaurants I could name that look the same. I was very disappointed they didn't incorporate some of their unique features like the open wood burning pizza oven, which is now gas and hidden. The kitchen is also out of sight and hidden from the patrons. In the past the open kitchen brought life to the place, was somewhat entertaining and gave us all the atmosphere that I'm sure many of us were expecting in the new facility. Sorry to say I won't be rushing back, not to say my experience was bad, it was just OK.
Big Ridge Brewing Co. is a good old standby. Good food at decent prices with friendly and attentive service. My only complaint would be that all the non-beer liquor seems a little pricey. Great pub atmosphere for games. They have a fantastic student deal on Thursdays 10% off food and drinks in the pub!
Had a large party here on Saturday night (25-30 people). We ended up having more people than expected, but the staff didn't panic at all - they calmly and professionally moved some stuff around to accomodate us. The wait staff handled our large group very efficiently and were never bitchy (as is the case most other places with large groups). They were fantastic - will definitely be back again and again.
We don't live close but we make an effort the dine here at least twice a year. We have also taken both sets of parents and they loved it. My dad still talks about how great the food was and if you knew my dad you would know that's a great review in itself.
The food is great and we love that we can take our baby here with no problems. The atmosphere is warm and inviting and the staff are attentive and accommodating.
I highly recommend!
My friend took me here for my birthday and I have to say that I was neither impressed nor disappointed. The service was alright and the ambiance was nice however my meal was nothing to call home about. Overall I am not really sure whether I will return again...I guess I'll decide that when the time comes.
Went there for the first time for lunch. Food was very tasty, I had the Black & Blue Burger with fries (which are beer-battered), came with just the right amount of blue cheese, my Mom had the Halibut on a bun with salad, and commented that it was fresh, (not a frozen piece of fish), which she also enjoyed. Our server was very nice. Would go there again.
It's and OK place and great place to drop by if you are in the neighbourhood especially on Sundays because the beer is cheap and pizzas are half priced. The pizzas are good. Thin crusted. I especially like the vegetarian. Some of the Wok dishes are OK some not so OK. The ambiance is average (typical pub/restaurant. Service is good. It isn't fine dining or anything but neither are the prices. It's also a good place to hang out after work with colleagues.
Good place for beers they have a pub side and a restaurant side menu items are a bit different. They do have a couple of solid items on the restaurant menu. Pizza is pretty good, and I enjoy the Sweet and Sour Pork and the Cashew Chicken Chow Mein. Quality is noticeable but the portions are a bit on the small side and can be inconsistent. Don't really care for any of their appetizers either, less pub-like more upscale. A bit on the pricey side for most dishes too so it's not a place I would recommend putting into the dining out rotation on an ongoing basis. They have room for larger groups too 10-15.
