Happy Endings has now expanded and improved with an updated kitchen, updated menu and Happy Ending store selling Happy Endings merchandise! What ii hasn't updated is the prices. Still the best prices in town with their $5 Promos, get two beers and two double shots of their signature Vertigo Tequila for $5. Great bar staff, great tunes and the owner... More

My wife and I ate supper at Happy Endings, but not the one in the photo at the marina. We ate at the one one the main street. I presume this is under the same ownership. We did not eat in the big bar, but out side on the side walk, sitting on stools talking to the chef. We ate... More

We absolutely lived to meet up with friends here, nice and relaxing and fun. The wait staff was very friendly and accommodating, my kids were getting a little bored so they set them up with a game of "coke" pong and they had a great time. There is also free wifi and phone calls home. My favourite thing was the... More

Arrived mid-afternoon on Saturday to an almost empty bar. Bartender was friendly and attentive, but we didn't expect to pay $18 for two drinks. Found better prices at a number of bars nearby. Was disappointed after all the 5 star reviews on TA.

It's a great place to hang out and chill with good food, cold beer and excellent friendly bartenders.
