Steel Toad Brewery Vancouver | Olympic Village False Creek

Steel Toad Brewery Vancouver | Olympic Village False Creek

[image_with_animation image_url=”13103″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”]

Steel Toad Brewery & Dining Hall Vancouver is located on 97 East 2nd Avenue between Ontario and Quebec. It is located near Earnest Ice Cream, Craft Beer and Tap and Barrel.

The space is transformed from the hertiage Opsal Steel Building dated back 1918. The name Steel Toad itself references the “steal toads” workers (members/crew of a steel plant).

The interior of Steel Toad itself is massive: stainless steel of the modern brewing equipment contrasts with the wooden building. Two stories and plenty of bar space.

We came here one Sunday after service before taking a stroll around False Creek. The prices looked reasonable and had a good selection.

Calabrese Salami 14: 12″ thin crust pizza with olives, red onions and charred red peppers. Nothing special about this pizza.

Lamb Burger 15: piccalilly, harissa aioli and sesame bun. Locus on Main has a far better lamb burger than Steal Toad. This burger was sloppy and flavors were non-cohesive.

Overall experience was underwhelming and disappointing. Food took a long time to arrive despite a near empty restaurant. Service was lackluster.

It’s a shame given the beautiful space. Given such fierce competition of restaurants and pubs near Olympic Village / False Creek, Steal Toad will really need to put on their game face.

Steal Toad could be a great spot for a beer. They do have a good selection at reasonable prices. After all, a beer is a beer.

We spend a leisurely afternoon playing tourist at the Stanley Market in Hong Kong. It was a nice sunny day with a few clouds in the sky. It takes about 30 minutes to get here from Central. We wanted to get away from the city even though Stanley is just as busy. Here you will find a large selection of bars and pubs.

It was packed everywhere and we settled for The Boathouse. The Boathouse Hong Kong in Stanley, is really not the same as The BoatHouse Restaurant in Vancouver. This Boathouse is dated and a tad run down. It is located beside the Pickled Pelican, which usually is jammed action packed. Deeply disappointed.

It needs a paint job and a face lift. The table clothes were dirty and had crumbs and stains. The tables were sticky. Services were slow and spotty. Why we stayed for bit really fathoms me. I think it was because we were so tired and thirsty.

A beer is a bear and there is not complaints here… or so you think. An ice cold glass would be much appreciated as opposed to the warm sleeve. For crying out loud the heat was sweltering about 30C and I can’t even enjoy a decent Tsing Tao in a Carlsberg glass.

Sausage Board 12.25: bratwurst, sauerkraut, sweet & grainy mustards, gherkins. This plate took us by surprise. We hadn’t realized it was only the lone sausage. It was juicy but we were somewhat disappointed as we stared the table next to us with sliders and fries galore.

So we caved and ordered more…

House Fries 5.75: drizzled with house-made ketchup & aioli + double-smoked bacon 1.50. We loved the Six Acres Gastown house made ketchup in near tomato paste form and a light drizzle of mayo on these crispy potatoes. If only I had some paprika, I’d totally sprinkle some on.
