Slow Service, Average Food

I was disappointed with this place. Aside from the fact that its selection gets tedious after several nights in Iqaluit, there was no country food on the menu. Further service is excruciatingly slow even when the place is not packed. You'll need to show some initiative to get served. There's not... read more

To grab some light food or to change the pace from a meeting at the hotel or dining room. Great Place. Great Atmosphere

The food is pretty good and the service prompt and friendly. As one would expect in Iqaluit the prices make your hair curl - but they are the same as prices throughout Iqaluit. Music Thursday through Saturday and the local performers are quite ok

I've eaten here a few times now, and its always interesting. The food is high quality, and you get your moneys worth which is hard to do in Iqaluit. The menu has several items, and the recommended are the Big Man Burgers and the Arctic Charr and Chips. The staff was super friendly, gave great recommendations, and always coming by... More

It's decent, but don't go here for food. They have a lot of items on their menu that are consistently not available. When I have ordered food, there's always items missing or if they are there it's burnt!

This is a nice pub that serves good and interesting food and carries, I believe, the widest selection of beers in Iqaluit. They often have local groups in for live music and do other special events.

The Kickin' Caribou Pub is based at Hotel Arctic (referred to by locals (and cab drivers) as The Nova). It's a small, cozy place with pub fare and friendly staff. Food prices are as reasonable as they get in Iqaluit. If you like poutine, this is my favourite (for those who aren't in the know: it's french fries covered with... More

Great pub. Good atmosphere. Sports on the television, live music most nights and good drinks. It's a little on the small side, so sometimes you'll find yourself having to wait for a few minutes to get in, but it's well worth it. The staff are great, the people are great. One of the best places to relax in Iqaluit.

This is not one of my favourite places in Iqaluit but it does provide a chnage of scenery. Waiters are great and they are busy, but the room is noisy and the menu is pretty standard. However prices are bette than at The Water's Edge next door.
