This is a fun bar with excellent food and atmosphere. They have a great lunch menu and the value is very good. Fun time at night and a great place to kick back.

Ups N'Downs is simply a great place for a creamy pint and some simply, honestly delicious grub. We stayed simple and feasted on rich French Onion Soup and extraordinary quesadillas all enclosed in a delightfully friendly atmosphere. We traveled on from Sarnia to Detroit by a few days later we were back for seconds But please do not take our... More

There is a lot of space and the food and drinks are good. This is where you want to go if you have a large group for lunch downtown sarnia.

Was here for lunch. The food was good the portions were large. The service was adequate. The price was right ~ 4 lunches with 4 grown up beverages and the bill was less than $60.00

A nice place to go for a evening of good music , a dance , and the food is generally good, It could be a little more open , a bit tight , but overall a good place to spend a evening

My buddies and I went here, and the staff was great. Our waitress had us both of the nights we went there and she held herself to a standard of great service. She sat with us, chatted with us about home and whatnot (we're from Michigan). The drinks were reasonably priced and the food was good!

Cold food. Empty glass. Don't know if they're understaffed or what, but the owner doesn't seem to care if you like it or not. All he seems to want to do is make excuses and treat unhappy customers like they're foolish. Don't waste your time or money here.

The place is iconic, it has been there for a few generations as an entertainment and food spot. Saying that the food is good, the menu is very large, some people might like that or some people might disagree with that. I never had something there that i have to comeback for no matter what, my meals are always good... More

Love it when they open the large doors and you dine al fresco. Great bands play, and food is always good and plentiful. Especially the beef dip or beef with cheese and onions on a bun. Staff are friendly. Happy to take guests here.
