We had not been here for a few months so stopped in for supper. The service was very slow. This was early evening and there was not a lot of people in the restaurant so it wasn't due to being busy. Their food use to be really good, this time the burger was not very good at all. All I... More

We quite enjoy the food there on occasion but it's so loud in there you cannot carry on a conversation at all. Drinks were not very good which was disappointing.

Consistently good food. Not gourmet - working class. They have good ribs, sandwiches, appitizers etc. Be aware - no minors allowed so leave the kids at home. But if you want to go where there is no baby to interrupt, well..... There are no reservations and sometimes a wait. but that's a good sign. Also good for a business meeting,... More

My husband and I rarely get the chance to go out on a date anymore. Last night we decided that with no kids around we would like to go to a pub.

Usually a good crowd, food has always been good. I have been probably 20 times in the last couple of years. Great staff, prices are reasonable. Big tv's in the right places for watching sports.

A colleague and I dropped by one afternoon after work to try something different from our regular watering hole. We were pleasantly surprised to have found this one. They had a good beer on tap, which was replenished just before the glass was completely empty. Wings came hot and properly seasoned, lettuce wrap was refreshing, the calamari a bit salty... More
