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.

The decor is 100% Canadian sports bar... More

Sorry Uptown Sports Bar todays visit was poor in the food department. My friend called me up because he heard there was going to be a breakfast buffet this afternoon for the football playoffs. We got there and it was in fact not a buffet. Instead it was a menu of breakfast items that were an apparent buffet. So after... More
