When it's cold and rainy, and you want a place close to your hotel.... We were staying at Hotel Blu and didn't want to walk too far after being in the cold all day, so we chose this place. We both had a great local brew and nice casual meal. We aren't fancy folks, but do like a good meal.... More

Wife and I ate here before a Canucks game - just 2 blocks from Rogers Arena. The food was pretty good and the beer selection was not bad. Several local brew pub beers available on tap. I would visit this pub again next visit.

I was craving a hamburger, so I went with a colleague here. The bar/restaurant has a comfortable atmosphere and it's not too busy at lunchtime. The burger and fries hit the spot, but I thought the price was a bit high. Probably since it's right in the business district.

We went there for dinner on a Sunday night. They have a number of TVs set up and showed the Sunday Night Football game. The patio was open, and the entire restaurant was more than half full. We ordered the mac and cheese, which was really cheesy and came in a deep pan dish. There was a lot more pasta... More

Stopped here the nite before a trip to Alaska. Drinks were good, food very good. Some of the dry ribs were salty. The wings were great. Thursday is 35 cent wing day. These are smoked wings on the BBQ, not fried. Great flavors to choose from. Pork is great, stuffed jalapenos were ok, they would have been better with the... More

Stopped to have a drink and ended up having dinner. Food was excellent and very healthy for a pub. We ended up going back for dinner the next night too!
