Re: “Edmund's Oast

We ordered both charcuterie plates, and they were both solid. The beer selection is solid too. I went in June, so maybe it was the timing, but the crowd seemed very touristy, middle-aged, and well-heeled. I'm 40 and I was younger than most people there. Maybe my preconception of beer gardens as unpretentious, neighborhood places skewed my feeling, but I really did not feel very relaxed there. I couldn't imagine hanging out with my friends and just having a good time. And some of the beers were a dollar or so more expensive than I've seen them other places (like the Oak Barrel Tavern).

Another reviewer mentioned feeling ripped off on Upper King St. I know how he/she feels, since I've had that experience too. I wouldn't say I felt ripped off at Edmund's Oast; it just felt like I was being sold an up-scale brand that I didn't need or really want to pay for.

I do think I have to read more reviews before I check out new places. Unfortunately, a lot of them seemed aimed more at tourists with money to blow rather than locals just interested in a good meal and drinks.
