Sat at a table and waited more than 1/2 hour before finally leaving. Food smelled good but I guess I'll never know!

The menu is a combo of mediocre greasy pub food, and a new section of pretty-good Lebanese dishes. A college hangout, maybe. Very short-staffed when we visited.

We are use to going to Joe's and having great service for over four years, as students of Acadia University it is common opinion to consider Joe's a second home. Unfortunately tonight was a different story, we felt personality victimized and un-welcomed by the majority of the wait staff. After not receiving appropriate service we were discussing our disappointment when... More

We stopped in for a quick lunch in the evening while visiting Wolfville. We had the pan fried haddock and the pan fired scallop dinners. They were both good meals and came with a hearty potion. You have the option of eating in or eating out on the patio (which was full when we arrived). Relaxed atmosphere for a quiet... More

Stopped by for some quick pub food and grabbed a patio table. The place was busy while all the other restaurants were half empty so we figured this was the local hot spot. I wasn't expecting much. I ordered wings and my wife had Fish and Chips. My wings were classic re-cooked from the day before and were dry as... More

This place is not anything special but does serve ok food. We tried the club house sandwich, the hamburger and Philly cheese steak. As an appetizer we tried their sliced potatoes with cheese and bacon. The beer selection is just awful, no local brewery beers only the usual Molson selection.

We stopped in for a late lunch and each ordered the Lebanese beef shish kabobs. The serving was very large and came with salad, tzatziki sauce, a pita bread, the kabob was served on a bed of delicious flavoured rice and vegetables. It was excellent. Served quickly and devoured about as fast! We had the hummus to start, also delicious.... More

Big portions of food. Fish and chips with haddock was great. Sit back and enjoy the traffic in small town Wolfville :-)
