We had a great time at the Canada Day pig roast. Fireworks and live music. Carly & Troy are great hosts and the food was terrific (as always). Best selection of craft beers in the area. And, if he's in the mood, Troy will play some wicked tambourine.

We went to the lions head for a business after business meeting. Troy and Carly went above and beyond in every aspect of service. The food was amazing and lots of it. What this young couple has done with this pub is truly amazing. New floors, bar counter, Herb garden out back and some excellent gardening on the back patio.... More

First off, I want to comment on the bad review I read on here. I loved the owners response and he couldn't have said it better "unfortunately our establishment isn't for you". Well put!! I believe in excellent customer service as well, but this doesn't mean you can be rude to the staff... especially when they are willing to satisfy... More

Two of us tried the meat feat - several kinds of sausage, pulled poke, pulled chicken, large beef ribs, pork ribs and I don'' know what else... all exceptionally tasty, and served with 5 house sauces. A mountain of meat we could not climb, but had a lot of fun trying.

Burgers with chips and vegetables are tasty. Friendly people, nice interior. Reasonable priced. Castlegar just a place to stay a night over (for us).

Last February I reviewed this place and had a poor experience. The owner actually asked me to call him regarding my review and at one point asked me to take it down which I refused to do. Instead I told him I would be back to do another review. So last night a group of 4 of us went in... More

Normally when we have a review of this nature we really try to address the concern of the consumer. In this case I have discussed with my staff your experience, as you were very memorable. (Both times, and yes I have also personally discussed this matter with you). To address what appears to be the big issue of no volume,... More

Having developed my taste for authentic smoked BBQ while living in Texas for 2 years, I ordered the smoked sampler platter with my fingers crossed. It was AMAZING. Perfectly smoked meats, still juicy, huge portions. Combined with the beer section and exceptional friendly service, this place would be my goto restaurant if I didn't live in Toronto 😫. If in...
