Hey, it's a busy pub. The food was fast, hot and above average. That's what we hoped for and it's what we got. But I won't be taking my mum there for her birthday. Because it is what it is.

I come here regularly in the summer for Margarita Monday. They have a great selection of different flavoured margaritas and on Mondays they are only $5 for a single or $6 for a double. You can't beat that price for a good margarita. On occasion I have ordered food here. It is decent food but definitely too expensive for what... More

They are soooo good! the other great items on the menu are the deep fried ice cream and strawberry daiquiri's. We always get these same things every time and are never dissapointed! Over the years they have changed owners and the quality... More

This is the first time I have been here in a couple years. I use to go quite often as the food and service were always good and consistent, but just haven't made it in awhile. It absolutely went downhill from the quality of the food, the portion sizes and the customer service. No one greeted us when we arrived,... More

I was there many years ago and did not enjoy it. Last week I sent 2 people there and they both did not like it. The burgers were not good. There is just no need of this. There are so many good places to get a burger so why not be one of them. Over all not a good experience... More

We went as 2 couples. Food was not as good as it usually is at the Moncton location. I had the burger and it was ok. Bun was not toasted. Tortilla chips in nachos were stale. Roof top patio was nice. I expected more for what I paid for. I will probrobly will not return there.

Has nice rooftop deck and good selection of beer. Service is spotty at best and the food has gone downhill.Tasted like it was frozen food.Let down by the nachos and the chimichangas which were always reliable years ago. Can't see how they will last serving this food and these portions in such a fickle city with loads of pub options

Food was over priced and very poor quality. Margareta was small, no salt and mostly water. Service was poor.
