Decent Pub

Everyone enjoyed their meals. They have a decent selection of your typical pub food. Good beer selection. Service was fast, friendly and attentive. Decor was typical "dark & dingy" pub decor, but we are out back on the outdoor patio. Location is half a block of the Main Street and toward the... read more

I guess it's okay if you want a cheap beer and meal, but I'm not sure why the young woman at the hotel desk recommended this place to the six of us mature bikers when we asked where to find a pub with some entertainment. This is a college bar with no atmosphere and a dirty broken down bathroom. The... More

We stopped in for a beer early on a Monday evening. It was quiet and the bar tender was friendly! Food is available but we just stopped in to have a quick beer. It is large and no doubt very busy on other days and hours.

For a small town like Antigonish, this place is like a oasis in a desert, literally. Located just off Main street and a stone's throw from the St.Francis Xavier University campus, this pub attracts locals and visitors. We were at the University campus attending a three week course and this was one of our favorite watering holes. Friendly staff, good... More

Good pub fare and a good time.Check out the specials as there is always something good on. The University is close and there is a younger crowd in the evenings.

My husband And I occasionally go for the 2for1 steaks on Thurs nights... I never got a bad one yet! We've gotten the burgers as well, and they were good.

Food was surprisingly good. Well cooked fries, which is always a joy to find. Burgers, wings and seafood platters were great. I would definitely go back! A little pricey, but nothing new for Antigonish, which is a ridiculously expensive place to eat in restaurants.

Went with a large group of family and it could accommodate us and the staff were very friendly, especially the bar staff - Marilyn!

The bar decor needs an update, it seems tired. The food was average, all deep fried and nothing special. Great location, close to the University and downtown. Price point was a high for the quality of the food.
