More pub than restaurant but great food

I am not sure why I thought it was going to feel more slightly upscale a la new made to look old. When I discovered it was located adjacent to a strip mall, I wasn't sure we had the right place. Fortunately my guests didn't care - we were here for each other's company. Luckily the food turned... read more

By far the best food in hamilton. Muscles for the appetizer and double smoked bacon wrapped meat loaf...AMAZING. All this and 100's of craft beers and amazing live music during the week. A must go if you visit hamilton and a weekly stop if your local!

Sure, it's slightly higher than your average bar price (and even that's debatable) for a meal but I guarantee it's the best you've ever had in a pub. Everything is fresh and local and it's obvious a lot of love goes into these plates. The wings are SOOO good and burgers are a must. That being said - drink specials... More

The food is quite good and they have a great selection of beer, but everything is very overpriced. Bar nights are a nightmare, with a line going around the block sometimes and people pushing and shoving to get from anywhere to anywhere once inside. Upstairs feels like an authentic Irish pub, and they should encourage people to eat there more... More

My spouse and I enjoyed the Novemburger at this downtown area restaurant. We were greeted pleasantly at the door, seated immediately and given table choices. We were advised who our server would be. Our server arrived shortly after the hostess seated us. Our drink orders were taken promptly and delivered quickly and accurately. Very well paced service. Our food orders... More

Stopped in Slainte for for dinner and a couple pints. The outside is rather plain and almost uninviting. Once you go in, which you should, it is a great pub. The atmosphere is one of a solid pub, complete with fireplace. The server was knowledgeable and very pleasant. She knew the particulars on the many domestic, import and craft brews... More

We were looking for a place to eat while waiting for the Demi lovato concert to finish. Google showed this pub. The waitress. Alissa was fantastic. She did a great job, was funny and put up with the ones in our party who couldn't make up their mind. It was a great meal (fish, turkey clubs) and great service. The... More

The food here is average, nothing special and nothing I'd brag about. It's very dark so dark I had to use light from my phone to see menu. The service was very good.. the hostess and waitress were very friendly.. I'd come back to drink but for food I'm not sure, maybe an appetizer next time.. had a burger and... More

Great building, great beer selection, always something good on the menu. Very busy in the winter and much slower in the summer. No patio which us unfortunate. Very good food and attracts quite a crowd of younger folks later on the evening. One of the key places for kids to go later at night. Pleasant atmosphere, good food (some Irish/British... More

Awesome service ! Food was excellent. I had the bombay curry chicken on rice - lots of chicken and broccoli and cauliflower and curry sauce - very tasty ! My better half had the Le Snob Burger and said it was rich and unusual and delicious. (Unusual with the pairing of brie cheese, foie gras and the burger).
