Love the salad with the healthy piece of chicken and all the other fresh fixings. Cauliflower fritters and frites also must try

I've been there many times and Every time we receive great service. The staff are fun and do a great job. The menu items are very unique (including their interesting and delicious cocktails). I strongly recommend the ceasars. They make their own mix and it's amazing. My favorite menu items are the burgers and the salads. Everything is always very... More

I went with a friend to watch the World cup 3rd place match. We weren't planning on staying long so we asked the bartender to suggest something light to eat. The bartender was very friendly and helpful, and his suggestion of the calamari salad was spot on. I had the chocolate, which was great. Will definitely visit again.

This place would've been absolutely great had it not been for the terrible blaring music that other reviewers had also mentioned. How bad was the music? Terrible, they had a dj booth set up from across the parking lot blasting what they thought was swanky, hip techno music to the point where normal conversation was a struggle. Had it not... More

Thank you for your great review of our food. We just wanted to jump in and say that you must have visited during the Walkerville Art Walk when we had the DJ in the parking lot. This was a special engagement for the Art Walk and is not a common occurrence. We look forward to providing you another fine meal... More

This could be a lovely place to dine--outdoor patio or inside--but for that dreadful tendency so many dining places have to play music to the point where pleasant conversation or business discussions are impossible. Why do so many, otherwise, nice eateries insist on drowning prospective conversation with music that is both annoying and far too loud. Food here is good--their... More

Three friends went to celebrate two birthdays. The restaurant is nice but has a very different menu. We all ordered the chicken sandwich and the waiter warned us that their sandwich would be small. They are on a small bun, but they were very good. A dish of shoestring fries is and extra $5.00 as a side, considering the sandwich... More

Overall atmosphere is nice, but acoustics are bad - it's difficult to control in those old buildings. However, the food is really good - my favourite is the Cobb salad with chicken - delicious!!

We went with friends for dinner. Arrived at 6 we were told we had to gone by 8:30, kind of off putting. While we were waiting to order the table beside us was sat 3 times & people kept leaving, we should have followed suit. Menu is very limited & after we decided we were told 3 of the 10... More

We loved the coffee - freshly ground and brewed. The food was perfectly seasoned and delicious. We were lucky to find this place.

We went for lunch on a weekday. We ordered the blt and "big Mac" sandwiches and fries to share. Everything was balanced and enjoyable. Our waiter was calm and experienced. We would go again and bring friends next time.
