quiet for a Sunday night( no reason for poor service). Waitress was too busy watching her reflection to acknowledge our arrival. When the food arrived the crispy piled high nachos became less appetizing as it cooled off. We ordered nachos with beef but very little beef thrown on top as an after-thought. This pub needs to recoup thier service and... More

Great atmosphere. What I imagine a traditional Irish pub to be like. The food is always fantastic. Portions are huge and taking the second half home for leftovers is always a bonus. I've been for lunch and dinner several times. Never been disappointed.

We went with a hockey team at the 11 o'clock opening on a freezing Saturday. They let us in to the warm open bar area before 11, which was a good start on a minus 20 day! Service was excellent, atmosphere great - bright, cheerful, good tunes - and the best part was the food! Boys ordered off of kids... More

If you're looking to share a pint with a few friends, and nosh on some traditional pub grub, then this place is for you. In summertime, great patio. At nights the place is buzzing with a real fun atmosphere and live band.

We met friends here for dinner and drinks. Service was very good. Some food is great esp. appetizers though main meal fare mediocre (steak and brie for e.g.) Noise is an issue so not really a place to have intimate conversations. Good selection of beer and bar drinks. Overall would recommend.

I'm a Brit so I like a good pub and this is one of them. Can get a little rowdy at times, especially on a Friday or Saturday. Try and avoid those days if visiting with children. Staff are great and the food is very good for a pub.

I ventured into this place 2 days ago upon advice from friends in Barrie. I was NOT disappointed. Owner Steve came and greeted us at one time, the service was cordial and fairly speedy considering that BOTH sides of this establishment were full. Food and entertainment on BOTH sides. Other bars and clubs have come and gone in this area,... More

Food was super greasy and tasteless and when I mentioned it to my server they apologized but did not take any initiative to fix the problem. They simply apologized and walked away. I had two bites of my food and still paid full price for it. The restaurant was dirty and very very loud. I wouldn't reccomend this place for... More
