Great gathering place

The food is good, the drinks great and service top notch. Ate here with a business associate and we had way too much to drink, but had a great time here.

Got into the place at 940pm. Unfortunately kitchen closed at 9pm. Music was very good. Enjoyed atmosphere very much. Guinness flowed too easy.

Great place to take family earlier in the day or evening or to go out with friends at night but may need to arrive early in the evening to get a seat.

We often go to the Triangle for lunch, and their fish and chips are some of the best I've had. Try their 10 for 10 lunch options for a inexpensive high quality meal.

Excellent food! Sumptuous and generous dessert - We had the gingerbread that came with a delicious butterscotch sauce. It was a meal in itself!! Great music and friendly servers - a very enjoyable experience.

Enjoyed this place. Spinach salad was awesome and plentiful. Friendly staff. A bit pricey but the portions are large. The type of place where you can sit with your Mum and Dad and relax. Also, positive friendly ambience conducive to having your children attend on a given Sunday PM. Musicians show and subtlely jam in the background. Washrooms are clean.... More

We stopped by for a quick lunch and wound up having a full dinner and more! A bucket of shrimp! How can you go wrong with food that comes in a bucket? The other dishes were tasty and served hot. All-in-all a good experience. Our server (way overworked!!) did take time to explain the meals and engage in friendly conversation... More
