    We returned this week with friends. The food as usual was amazing. Thankyou for lowering the volume level of music. We could talk and hear each other as well as staff. What a difference and an absolute joy this was. This is now a favourite place to dine. Again a big thankyou

    The shared ribs were excellent. Amazing actually. Nice beer and had a margarita too, which was tasty. Loved the set up and will be back to take in some live music 🎶. They clearly know what they are doing there. I recommend it highly.

    The food quality has decreased dramatically since our last visit around Christmas. The brisket, usually outstanding, was dry, cold and overly seasoned. The chicken wings also were cold and a bit tough. Meal just was not up to our expected standards. However, beer is always great and the service was fine.

    I've been waiting weeks to attend hearing good things, we must have just missed out on our experience of awesome food. 1. Pork rib, cold and dry inedible. 2. Chips cold 3. Beef rib, tasty but dead cold. 4. Sausage Great flavour warm. 5. Chicken wing, Great flavour dead cold. 6. Salad, Very tasty and perfectly cold.

    Service was the best I’ve ever received at a brewery. All the staff were so funny and personable. Food was DELISH too. Only thing I’d say is it is definitely on the louder side in the main room so take that into consideration if you’re dining with a group who wants to talk!
    Dainton BreweryResponded on 18 June 2024
    Thanks for the review, really pleased you had a great time. We have live music on at weekends and the main room can get lively, if you're looking for a quieter area, we keep the sound lower in the Laneway section for groups looking to have a good chat, hopefully see you in there soon.

    The food was good and plentiful, however we were sitting in the laneway and it was so cold. The food got cold very fast and the restaurant was quite loud even being away from the live music. I would prefer to be in a warmer environment considering we were sitting inside. The wall behind us was just a canopy so it just felt like sitting outside anyway.
    Dainton BreweryResponded on 18 June 2024
    Hello, Thanks for the Feedback, apologies it was cold in the Laneway, we do have heaters in there but they can sometimes take a while to heat up, its been added to the open procedure that they get turned on first thing in the morning and we have a back up gas heater on hand too, we'll keep an eye on it, We advertise there is live music every weekend from 7pm, the Laneway is a quieter area, away from the speakers but we still have a party atmosphere around the venue, we'll look into keeping the speakers lower in there in the future.

    Food was delicious however the meat didn't fall off the bone as it should on ribs. I find anyone who chops up the ribs for their customers is either feeding children or worried that their customer may realise the left it on the grill a little too long. However the flavours were on points, burnt ends were to die for. Table service for drinks would be ideal, might as well if you have table service for the food, however it might be because you may have spent your entire childhood in RSLs and don't really know better which is ok, not here to judge.
    Dainton BreweryResponded on 27 May 2024
    Thanks for the feedback. Worth noting we're an industrial brewpub, rather than a bistro / restaurant, offering bar service as per a normal pub-style service model. Our kitchen is run by the fantastic team from Q BBQ serving Melbourne's best American BBQ, who also offer the option of QR code ordering from table. But for drinks we love our customers to come to the bar, chat with our friendly bar staff, and have the experience of tasting a few new beers to assist with their choice - or simply to indulge their curiosity. Cheers!
