About Brux House:
Brux House is a nice little place tucked away in a neighbourhood, and it serves some fantastic meals from its Canadian and European-inspired cuisine. Its address is 137 Locke Street South in Hamilton, Ontario, and this restaurant is a nice gastropub, serving craft beers on top of the great food offerings.
There is parking near the restaurant, and this place is wheelchair accessible and has free Wi-Fi. It is not a place to take your kids, but you can certainly go for a beer with friends. There is a lovely outdoor patio, and they serve alcohol from their full bar. There is a daily happy hour offer.
The menu is nicely crafted and in compliance with the beer or wine options. The food is prepared from fresh local ingredients and beautifully presented to the patrons. The Brux House is opened for lunch and dinner, from Tuesday to Sunday from 11.30 AM, and closing at 11 PM on Tuesday to Thursday, midnight on Friday and Saturday and 9:30 PM on Sunday.

The Brux House was opened as a place where fine fare and craft beers and ciders can be served together in a friendly setting. It was inspired by similar European places and is nicely decorated. There are wooden panelled walls, rustic light fixtures, and farmhouse-style tables and chairs. The bar is nice and wood, with seats beside it.
When the weather permits it, patrons can sit outside on the lovely patio and enjoy a meal or a cold beer. There is a private dining room on the top floor decorated in the same rustic, eclectic style. The menu is somewhat limited but reflects the nature of the restaurant.
There are appetisers, starters, burgers, main dishes, pretzel bun sandwiches, and desserts. Each dish on the menu is marked for eggs, dairy, wheat, shellfish, fish, peanuts and tree nuts, so people with allergies can freely enjoy a meal here.
The food comes served on beautiful white porcelain platters with the Brux House logo, and the logo can be seen on various objects throughout the restaurant. The beer selection this place carries is impressive, which at the moment takes 16 draft beers, 17 bottled beers, three ciders, and 9 Brux House house-made brews. For the wine lovers, there is an extensive wine list with brands from Italy, France, Germany, USA, and Canada.
Anyone interested in the Brux House can see their daily and weekly offers online, and make a reservation through their website. There is a weekly happy hour on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 4 to 6 PM when patrons can enjoy significant price drops on their favourite drinks at the Brux House.
