Very nice beer!

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

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

We were looking for a good pub to go in Saint John and we found this one, great beers, the waitress was really nice with us, i think it is one spot to go when you go in Saint John! A must!

Been there lots, always good beer and excellent valued food. Service is fast, a great place to relax as it's usually not crazy packed like other pubs. You can even bring a boardgame or something if your into that.

I ate here last night with a few friends and the waitress was super friendly and accomodating. I had the Bid Tide burger with jack cheese and bacon and a side of sausage and spinach soup. The soup was delicious with a subtle kick and the burger was seasoned very nicely with a fresh bun and condiments including garlic mayo... More

The craft beer was delicious, and the meals were great. The nice little pub reminded me of the pub in our home town.

I have gone here for drinks in the past - neat brewed beers! I most recently went for dinner. I was happy to have a few options as a vegan. I didn't check on all items, but I did discover that the veggie burger and the veggie chili are vegan too! I got the burger - it was okay (good... More

On impulse as we were walking by, we dropped in here for a drink. Nice ambiance, food looked good though we had made other plans for supper. Drinks were fine. Looks like it is popular with the locals, which I think is a good sign. I would go back and have a meal there next time.

Stopped in on a Tuesday night to sample the home brews. Choices were limited to five drafts, none of which my wife and I were particularly fond of. Tried the pierogi which were very good. It happened to be trivia night and the place filled up quickly with the locals. My wife and I joined in and had a great... More

Don't bother stopping here! Beer was warm and lacked life and flavour. Staff milled around the bar in a huddle ignoring the frowns on our faces. Ordered the parogies which turned out to be frozen bagged reheated version, sprinkled which what might have been bacon and green onions. Not going to repeat the experience, crossed the street and enjoyed cold... More
