    Amazing Experience

    Wedding: We had our wedding at the Granite in mid-October 2022 and cannot say enough good things about our experience. We originally met with Ron in November 2021 to view the venue, discuss dates and options as we do not live in the GTA (but both our families do). Needless to say, that first meeting went great & we locked in our date. During the months leading up to the wedding we were dealing with Sam who was more than helpful with all of our questions and getting everything in order for us. Again, being located in Ottawa and only using email & phone calls to communicate worked great for us and our minds were at ease. A couple days before the event we met with Chris (manager) to drop off some decorations and discuss the final few items (seating, final numbers, food allergies, etc.), and he was very professional with us, and you could see he knew what he was doing (I think he said it was their 35th wedding of the year, so that tells you a few things).

    Day of the wedding, everything went seamlessly, all was well organized with the guests being seated in the courtyard for the ceremony, followed by cocktails under the tent afterwards. Dinner service was also well organized (buffet), the food was fantastic, and there was more than enough for all of our guests, a lot of which went for second helpings. Desserts, coffee, tea, etc were all served immediately after dinner and all tasted great as well. We did late night snacks as well, which were appreciated by all of our guests and Sam's recommendations for the amounts to order were spot on. Drink services were well done all evening with no one waiting too long at any point. All of our guests have been complimenting how good the venue was, the staff, the food, and the atmosphere.

    We would have absolutely no concerns in recommending the Granite for someone's wedding in the future.

    The Granite Brewery & Tied House's reply:

    Thank you for taking the time to review us, Stacey. It was such a pleasure to host you and Rob on your big day, with all your friends and family in attendance. We wish you both love and happiness as you begin this next chapter of your lives together. Congratulations.
    We hope to see you in again soon!

    Cheers,
    Sam and the Granite Team

    Most Magical Bohemian Wedding September 11, 2022

    The Granite Brewery & Tied House was amazing - we had our wedding their on September 11, 2022. And it was beautiful. It really was a magical day. And I don't say those kinds of words easily. We had approximately 75 guests. There was parking for them that the Granite provided which was perfect, with next day pick-up.
    Our ceremony was held in the court yard - we danced down the aisle to the Conga, Gloria Estefan with Shakers and Tambourines. It was very beautiful - the ceremony and reception was very intimate and cozy everyone had a good time. Cocktails and appetizers on the out door patio fantastic. Food was amazing!!!! Beef, Chicken and Veggie Option yum - Veggie option was a really nice pasta! Price was perfect as well - everything in budget under 15K - parking, ceremony (court-yard), reception space, 75 guests, open bar, seated dinner, deco provided. We just showed up and enjoyed the day. I would highly recommended the Granite Brewery especially if your trying to keep cost down. This place is fantastic. The staff was excellent. and we feel we had a really big wedding - it was perfect!
    Thank you guys for all your hard work! and special shout out to SAM and CHRIS @ the Granite Brewery thank you for answering emails / phone calls asap and helping us make our day awesome!!! AND PS thank you for letting us bring our Jookie (our puppy) to the ceremony!! He loved it!!!!

    Wonderful!!!

    We got married this summer at the granite- from the first moment we reached out and contacted them- we knew it was the right fit for us. They were accommodating, easy going and brought our vision to life. Planning was made very simple and stress free. I am so happy we picked the Granite to get married!

    Amazing Experience at Granite Brewery

    From the start of planning in 2020 to our wedding in 2022, the staff at Granite were helpful, responsive, and accommodating. We dine at Granite Brewery for every special occasion, and when we got engaged there was never a doubt over who would host our wedding.

    Chris and the entire event staff were friendly and helpful, and made sure that meals were served on time and the drinks kept flowing. Speaking of food: from the hors d'oeuvres to dessert, everything was SO good! Guests are still raving about the food months later.

    The venue was decorated beautifully. The courtyard was the perfect spot to have our ceremony, and the reception space fit 80 people (and a photo booth!) very comfortably. Thank you, Granite!

    The Granite Brewery & Tied House's reply:

    Thank you so for trusting us with your special day, Rachael! It was such a pleasure to host yours and Dan's family and friends. What a wonderful collection of people! Wishing you both all the best as you begin this next chapter of your lives together. We'll see you again soon!

    Cheers,

    Fantastic venue and fantastic value

    We had a very positive experience with our evening reception venue. The venue itself is warm and relaxed, definitely the vibe we wanted our wedding to be. We really enjoyed the mixed indoor and outdoor spaces. The staff was professional and attentive, and provided fantastic service both before and on the wedding day. Everything on the day of was organized and ran like clockwork. The venue worked well with our vendors (cake, wedding planner, florist). Our guests had a fantastic time, thanks Granite!

    Thank you for the kind words, Mel! It was our pleasure to host you on your big day. What a lovely day it was! We hope to see you in again soon. Cheers!

    Definitely book your wedding or any other event here!

    We had our wedding at the Granite in October 2022. Sam and the team at the Granite were phenomenal in making our wedding experience lovely and smooth. Their pricing is very transparent, and available on their website, vs a lot of venues that have a lot of extra and hidden add-ons. They were also very accommodating with our requests like setting up an additional area for a tea ceremony, bringing in our own desserts from our cultures, and even bringing in a mariachi band during the reception! Sam was always very responsive to our emails, which made things easy while we were planning. All in all, we would 101982039482% recommend booking your wedding at the Granite!

    The Granite Brewery & Tied House's reply:

    Thank you, Krystle, for trusting us with yours and Tania's big day! It was such a pleasure to host you. It was amazing to see all your guests up and dancing together with the mariachi band. What a fun afternoon. All the best to you and Tania as you begin this next chapter of your lives together. Congratulations again!

    Amazing service, food, and experience at a great price

    We had out wedding at the granite in September of 2022 and it was absolutely PHENOMENAL. The staff were amazing, the food delicious and they served good sized portions (not too big or too small). The team was incredibly responsive in the planning process and flawlessly executed the vision on the day-of. Really great, nothing bad to say. Oh, and lastly - it was a very fair and reasonable price. A total gem - we got service beyond what we would have expected and felt good about supporting a local business with a long history in the neighbourhood. Win-win!

    The Granite Brewery & Tied House's reply:

    Thank you for kind words, Erik! It was such a pleasure to host you both. We love bringing our clients' special days to life. Thank you for trusting us! All the best in this next chapter of your lives together!

    A day we will never ever forget!!

    I can’t put into words how absolutely flawless, beautiful and perfect our wedding was at the granite. From every part of the planning and communication process with Sam, to the execution of the night by the amazing Chris and the ladies who worked their butts off all night to ensure every guest was taken of. I had 95 guests, and every single one of them told me it was the best wedding they had been too. It made me so proud and happy I chose the granite brewery to have our once in a lifetime experience.

    I want to relive this day over and over again.
    I cannot thank the staff and Sam for how much attention to detail they put into hosting weddings. A beautiful. Perfect. Most fun day of our lives.
