Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Our group of four stopped in to this location while in the area and as lovers of craft beer and smaller unique breweries.

The interior was fantastic with its historic church décor however the beer did not live up to my expectations. Although they offer several different varieties, none appealed to my taste nor to any one in our group.

Been there, done it but no repeat.

We visited this brewery as part of a tour and enjoyed the beer we sampled. It’s a lovely building (an old church) and we decided to go back the next day on our own. It was a really pleasant place to relax and spend time. On our second visit we ordered burgers/sandwiches and they were absolutely delicious. One in our group said the haggard burger was among the best burgers he’d ever had. The blackened haddock sandwich I had was moist and tender and very flavourful. Top marks and highly recommended.

This is a really cool spot but staff was not friendly. We sat down and after 15 mins had to go to the bar to grab some beer and the bar was nearly empty. Most of the beers weren’t to style! No descriptions on their chalk boards and we were never provided with menus, so who knows?! When we were done, still no table service so we went up to pay. They didn’t care about our experience, just took our money and walked away. Not cool guys!!

Thank you very much for your feedback - it is very unfortunate that you had this kind of experience, and it is unacceptable. We will work hard as a team to improve for next time. Cheers

Visited The Church on Thursday, Nov 2nd around 4:45pm. Was not informed of the Silver Hour specials on pints and small bites. Since they didn't do flights per se, we ordered four 4-oz pours and a little later decided to split the Spinach & Artichoke dip with chips. Saw Silver Hour promo info hanging on the washroom wall. Asked our server about it and did our dip qualify as a small bite. He said it did, but he'd have to check when the order was entered. Turns out it was 5:03pm and he would not honor the $2 off. That extremely poor customer service more than offset the cuteness of the church location. The food was good but minimal portions for the price; the beer quite frankly was just okay. We will not be back.

Very pretty setting. I was the designated driver for my group and was reprimanded by a shirty waiter when I asked for decaf coffee....."this is a microbrewery, not Starbucks". Well ok then. The other folks in my party liked the place but if you are not drinking for any reason, you might as well just wait in the car.

If you’re going to be in the NOTL region and looking for a brewery, look no further than Silversmith! My wife and I had traveled to the area for the Ice Wine Festival but stopped here for a quick beer on the recommendation of a friend. As someone who has visited a brewery or two, I was thoroughly impressed by all aspects of the place. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. The beers were delicious! And the pretzel we ordered from the kitchen was a perfect afternoon treat.

Will have to make this a regular stop on all future trips to NOTL!

My wife and I popped in to try some beers. We’ve been to dozens of breweries in Ontario and the US and this place was phenomenal.

If you like a wide range of beers and not just IPAs, you have to pop in here.

We also snacked on a fried chicken sandwich and it was perfectly sweet and spicy. I’ll be coming back here 100%.

Our server Neil was fantastic, this guy is super knowledgeable, fun, polite and made our experience go from good to great!

We visit the Silversmith regularly. The atmosphere, music and most of all the beers are great. My personal favourite ‘Freaky Beast’ is an IPA , my wife likes the ‘Breakfast Wheat’ . Highly recommend a visit when in Niagara on the lake or Virgil

In truth, we came by this brewery to see the location where their flagship beer, the black lager, was brewed. We saw this and so much more, experiencing some wonderful parochial architecture dating back to the 1890’s with reclaimed wood incorporated into the newer parts of the establishment. On top of this, the food was great (both the burger and the poutine), the service was satisfactory, and the beer, of course, was just as good as it always is. Highly recommend the dining experience here if you can find it.

Food was excellent. Service was awesome. Not a lot of places I eat I believe the food is with the price. This place it definitely is. If you’re looking for a nice patio to have a drink and some good food. Don’t pass this place up!
