The world is finally starting to open up after months of isolation due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The sun is out, the river is inviting, and the patios are opening!
While walking down King St the other night, we were happy to see plenty of people enjoying the patios at the 1000 Islands Brewery and at The Keystorm. Definitely a welcome sight after almost 4 months of isolation.
We were also happy to see the precautions and safety measure put in place to help prevent further spread of the virus.
So if you are just excited as we are to get out there to enjoy some suds in the sun, here are some of the best patios downtown Brockville.
The Keystorm Pub
2 Courthouse Ave
The Keystorm patio has been a staple of downtown Brockville for as long as I can remember. The patio looks a little different this year though as tables are required to be 2 meters apart from one another.
The owner of The Keystorm says they are licensed for 31 people on the patio and he hopes to be able to hit those numbers while maintaining distancing guidelines.
Patio goers will need to book a reservation to get a table and you can hold the table for up to 2 hours.
The Keystorm will be open Tuesday to Sunday, closed on Monday to make sure everything is sanitized fully.
Here the details from Dan himself below:
1000 Islands Brewery
Reservation or Drop In
65 King St West
The 1000 Islands Brewery team entered patio season strong. Brand new patio, new menu items, and awesome beer choices.
Their new patio went up super fast and is comparable (maybe bigger?) to The Keystorm’s patio. Since the patio takes up the sidewalk space, the city has removed the parking to extend the sidewalk around the patio. There are now barriers in place to keep people and cars separate.
The Brewery has also added a few new items to their menu. Smoked chicken wings, burgers, and a few others will pair nicely with a freshly brewed beer.
Plus you can pick up a 6 pack of whatever you like at the beer shop before you leave.
209 King St West
The Noshery is also on the list of new patio additions on King St. With 4 tables and 10 seats, the restaurant is ready for lunch or dinner.
Reservations are recommended and The Noshery is only accepting diners from Leeds and Grenville area. They will check ID’s if they do not recognize you, but will lift this limitation as the restrictions ease up.
The are currently open Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.

6 Broad St
The Moose is also open for patio seating now that we have moved into Stage 2 of re-opening the province!
Their upstairs deck patio has been refinished and is ready for diners. There are a handful of tables available, all spaced 2 meters or more apart of course.
They ask that you wear a mask as you walk through the common areas of the building to the back deck. If you don’t have a mask they have them available for $2 and will add it to the bill. How awesome is that!
The more open, closer to the harbour patio at The Roost Cafe is also open and serving the full pub menu.
Remember, stay safe, have fun, and most importantly, respect others around you!
Oh yeah, make sure to tip your servers well!
