I have a friend visiting from the San Jose area, and she'd like to have a couple meals at local microbreweries. She mentioned Steamworks in Gastown, because of the location and view - does anyone know if their food is any good? Granville Island Brewing has gotten a few good mentions from other CHs, so we'll probably have lunch there (although bypassing Go Fish will be tough). Are there any other places worth trying?
Also, I'm sure this is a dumb question, but are minors allowed in pubs? I'm not clear on the rules - for example, minors are allowed at the Thirsty Penguin bar/restaurant at Burnaby 8 Rinks, but not at Stanley's bar/restaurant at the Richmond Ice Centre. What's the rule?
