Good food, great bands

Great little restaurant in the heart of downtown Sarnia. Great food, wonderful bands. No free refills on pop with a meal which is frustrating as I'm always DD. I would've rated higher but I find the no refill thing very annoying, pop is cheap...most restaurants offer this. Step up management.

This watering hole has been around for a long time. It often has live bands and is a fun atmosphere. It does have an English pub feel.

This is a locally owned & operated little pub on the waterfront offering pub style dining. It's your typical burger & fry joint, but with an Irish/English flair. The Thursday night curry is to die for! The beer is always cold & when the patio is open, it's a wonderful place to sit & enjoy the river go by!

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

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!
