We usually stop in here every Saturday before or after going shopping. The food is always good and the drinks are are great. We do miss the old staff but the new staff is just as friendly. They always have a smile on their faces and are happy to see you. There are food and drink specials on everyday. This... More

we didn't eat, but drinks were good and reasonable. Friendly staff. We liked sitting at the window, you can see the lake and people walking by., in the lounge they will give you an ipad to borrow. Loved the colours inside the room.

My wife and I dropped in for dinner last night and it was great. How can you go wrong with $7.50 double Caesars (VERY yummy) and a steak sandwich for $12.95. The steak was ridiculously great (at least a 8 oz striploin done to perfection served with shrooms on focaccia, with a side caesar salad). Service was A1, fast, polite,... More

We were in Nelson, BC a couple of weeks ago and after passing this place for two days, we decided to go in and get a cold beer and a burger... what a wonderful treat we had! The burger meat is fresh ground on the premises, it is prime cut AAA beef from BC. They doctor it up with some... More

As I stay at the hotel every year for 5 years, running an event there, I have watched the food greatly improve especially over the last couple years. They have stepped their menu significantly and unlike other places I have come to love in Nelson, Uptown WILL do what they can to satisfy their customers. No issues substituting a simple... More

I came here and met friends to watch the UFC fights and have dinner and a drink. The atmosphere was enjoyable and the food was good, although it took about a half hour or so to get a veggie wrap and salad. My ceasar was up to par and the service was quality.
