Went in on a Wednesday for chicken wins, deep fried pickle chips, and nachos. Awesome food, great micro beer and friendly service. Like the idea of the outside fire pit. Definitely will return.

Went with a group of 6 people. We all ordered steak and it was properly cooked for all of us. Great tasting steak. Beer was fantastic. Great service and price was reasonable. Would definitely eat here again. Pub atmosphere for those expecting something different.

We were out on the bikes the other day and stopped here on our way back from our ride up the lake. We sat outside on the front patio and were pretty much on our own out there. I guess when you ride around on a motorcycle you used to the cooler weather. There was a large fire pit and... More

We stopped by for lunch recently. I found the food okay. The pub itself is dark and not really a great atmosphere unless you are there to be...in a bar. I hear they get great bands but overall, I wasn't that wowed

Hello, Thank you for visiting our Craft beer Smokehouse pub. I hope you visit us again. I have some suggestions to improve your visit. If you found the interior dark I would suggest sitting in our sunroom it is open and all windows. It also has some really nice tropical plants situated in the room. Being a vegetarian I know... More

My boyfriend and I ate in the outdoor seating area with a beautiful view of the Columbia River and the mountains. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and our server's recommendation on which beer to pair with our food was spot on. The pulled pork is the BEST pulled pork I have ever had. Definitely try this place if... More

Ok, I am a fussy beer drinker, but with 12 taps of premier craft beer, how could I complain? The food sometimes eclipses the brew, too, so don't be afraid to order an incredible steak or some terrific mussels! This is my go-to pub in the Kootenays.

Had never tried this appetizer before,and it was great. Busy pub on a Sunday night, but staff was helpful and friendly, warned us about the wait, and the food was worth it. The Greek pizza was delicious. Excellent smoked meats. We tried ribs, pulled pork and brisket. Brisket was the favorite.

Typical pub food but the choice of fine brews is impressive. Fun servers, a boisterous local crowd when we were there all combined to make it a fun, enjoyable experience.

My wife's hamburger was very good but my mac & cheese was just OK, not very special. I have had better and also worse, but mac & cheese needs to be cheesy or it is just mac that the cheese kind of flew over.
