Really hoped for a good sushi experience. The chef was very nice. I ordered 2 chop scallop and a dynamite roll. No mention that the dynamite roll had the spicy red in the dynamite roll. Never experienced that before. The rice was super dry and the roll was a disapointment. The chop scallop was good. Hoping to cool the spice,... More

Kai is a wonderful sushi chef. The best way to order is to give a $ amount that you would like to spend and the wonderful food arrives. Typically my husband and I order $30.00 worth between the two of us and we are extremely full when we leave. The variety and presentation is second to none. It is the... More

Went out for a nice meal and brew at this establishment, had been there before. However things have changed and we were very disappointed with all aspects. Service and food below average, probably not returning. Not pleased.

Pretty much an abysmal experience. My husband ordered an IPA, and although he saw the bartender pour out of the right tap (per the pull), he very clearly got a lager. It would appear that the taps were not set up correctly, but a bartender should be suspicious of the beer just by color alone. I ordered a mixed drink.... More

The food here was pretty good - we had a variety of the appetizers and they were all quite tasty. I'm not sure I cared for the 'forno' pizza crust and wouldn't order it again but it wasn't bad. The service was pretty good, the prices were fair. The atmosphere is neither here nor there. You likely won't love it... More

I must say that the service at the flying canoe pub was without a doubt some of the best service I have ever received at a restaurant. our server john was legitimately engaged with our well being and took a genuine interest in making us feel welcome. He went out of his way to make us comfortable, and to boot... More
