  • I had their famous Old Mill Lager which was a surprisingly dark lager. The locals call it "Old Dirty" ... Anyhow when I hear "brewpub" or "craft brewery" I have come to expect that they put the same amount of time into the food as they do their beer. It's what makes going to a brewpub a good experience. Good beer AND good food.

    Unfortunately for Tracks their food is terrible. Really really bad ... I've never even written a review before but I was shocked into doing so to warn others. We had a table for 4 and ordered a variety of dinner items on the menu .. all of which were disappointing.

    Our Nacho Starter had melted cheese on the outside but was cold in the middle (the cheese was dry and not melted in the middle) .. The nachos tasted like the ones you get at the movie theatre ... way too salty ... no salsa or guacamole or hot peppers ...

    My Veal Parmesan main course was so tough it was impossible to bite off a piece ... the entire piece would slide off the bun. It was like trying to eat leather. Someone else ordered the Chicken Parmesan which was served burnt and greasy and somehow tasted like a frozen chicken dinner put through the fryer.

    The Fish and Chips had a pool of oil and grease oozing off it and tasted disgusting. I'm not sure how you can mess up Fish and Chips. The side order of coleslaw was the only edible part. Finally someone else ordered a Caesar Salad. The lettuce looked like it was 5 days old and came out of a precut bag that you might buy at Loblaws.

    I'm a big supporter of local brewpubs (I wish there were more in Ontario) so it pains me to have to write this review. Brewpubs have a tough time competeing with all the big box bars like Jack Astors etc... so they need to serve "craft food" along with their "craft beer" ... that's what I expect.

    One last thing to mention was that the Mens washroom upstairs was full of tiny blackflys. There were 20 or 30 clinging to the wall above the urinal. Also we had to constantly ask our waitress for everything. Napkins, cutlery, more beer, please take away our awful food ... the only way to get service was to flag her down.

    In summary, Tracks has a decent beer even if the locals do call it "Old Dirty"... and Tracks has really awful food that takes the "Dirty" to some other level. Be warned - eat elsewhere.

  • I have been going to Tracks for about 10 years, and I have had mixed experiences. Low expectations make for a better experience. The services if friendly and will get you what you want, but the food quality is hit and miss. Stick to the deep fried food. beer (which was brewed on-site in the past,) and Don't substitute fries for salad because you'll be charged extra for the salad, and it will be drowning in dressing. This pub has a lot of potential but lacks in interesting beers and menu items. Craft brews would be a nice addition to set it apart from other pubs. Go on a Wednesday for "cheap" beer day and wings. Good times.

  • We've been to Tracks a few times and always know we can get a good meal for a good price. Our absolute favorite is the Beef Dip and Fish & Chips (you actually get two large pieces of fish for a great price!). They've added some better wine choices to their menu and larger wine glasses, home brew is always a good choice. The fries and Caesar are a great choice and large helpings.

    Could use a bit of reno in the dining room, but the new owners are doing some good work to attract a broader audience range. Close to Rose Theatre in Brampton, free parking, good food for a good price!

  • Nice service, nice patio - but it seemed like the only reason people were on the patio was to smoke, i hate it when people smoke all around me when i'm eating - yuk.
    Inside is nice - but really needs an update reno. Looks like it can't decide if it's a tea room, family diner or a pub.
    I admit we got the brown plate (everything deep fried) but it was obvious tat everything can out of the freezer, onio rings, fries, wings (ok), chicken fingers - which...ok is pretty much the same all over - but the thing that bugged me the most was the fake bacon bits hidden under the cheese on my potato skins. Would it kill you to buy some real bacon? That stuff is gross - the food dye had bled into the surrounding cheese - it was just zero effort. I heard they have good ribs - so i'll give it another try and report back.

  • Atmosphere is nice - could use a little updating. Service was not great. I've heard its better during the day. The thing that killed it was the food: too pricey for no flavour.

  • Order: We had the wings. They were huge . Reminded me of the Anchor Bar wings in Bufalo. Meay well cooked with the right sauce. Washed it down with the Tracks Home Brew beer. They make it right there, great taste and the price is right. Tracks is reasonable, good food, friendly surroundings but casual. Bar tender served us at a table. He was friendly and efficient. Tracks is tucked away next to the rail line in a 100 year old building.

  • The waitress was really nice, but not too overly friendly or pushy. She left us alone to enjoy our meal but was always nearby if we needed something,which isn't something you get very often. The nachos were really good! The nacho portion was massive and good for the price.

  • Order: Nachos (appetizer) and a Killer Kool-aid (alcoholic)
