We decided to have dinner here since the menu looked good and they are a local micro brew. Sadly all elements were a bit of a let down. To start off it was a busy friday night, service was slow, but friendly. It's one thing if your busy and things get backed, it's another to completely forget to enter a... More

Second stop on our "MooseHead" Pub Crawl from our cruise ship. Manager gave us a tour of how the beer is brewed. Sampled 3 different kinds of beer...some enjoyed the Blue Berry. Had a few appetizers....very tasty. Very clean place....excellent tour by the manager.

Not only were the fish & chips I ordered the greasiest I had ever had, but they had so much breading that I could hardly find the fish! The beer was tasty but the glass was warm! If it wasn't for the cruise ships coming in, this place wouldn't have a chance because I can't imagine having any repeat customers!

We all had fish and chips, onion rings. Very enjoyable. We would all go back when we are in Saint John, again. The next time we will try Yorkshire pudding dinner. Tried sampler beers first. Then beer and wine.

While we didn't eat here, the beer was all good and the service was also. It was warm in the main bar, but the back part by large windows worked well. We came back three nights with consistent service and beer quality.

I had been there before, liked it, it's fairly typical pub fair. We went there this time mainly because I wanted to fill my growlers with their excellent beer. Both my wife and I decided to go with something different for a change, I had the Hot Thansgiving Club and she had the Italian Chicken. Both were great. Now, I'm... More

We showed up here tonight super hungry, and left very satisfied. We picked this place because they have a gluten free friendly menu. My daughter has multiple food allergies, and they were very accommodating of her. The server made sure that the chef knew about this, and it was very reassuring. I ordered the nachos with out cheese or sour... More

Just polished off a serving of sweet potato poutine. It was fantastic. So good. Like melt in your mouth, perfect gravy, perfect Monterey Jack, perfectly cooked fries. I shed a tear when it was done. But then I had a spoonful of my husband vegetarian chili. Really nice flavour. Perfect amount of veggies and beans, and 2 homemade biscuits. Great... More

As a brewery buff, I really enjoyed the beer offered here. The ruben I had was good, however the day I was there the cook was a bit heavy with the mustard, that overpowered the sandwich. Still, I'd go back
