Our experience was much like "Not worth the Wait" of August 3 with the exception that we couldn't even get a menu! Upon arrival last evening (August 12) no one was manning the "Please Wait to be Seated sign", so another patron told us to just seat ourselves as no was going to come. So we sat, in full view...

This place has potential. The service was lacking in many areas. The food was just ok. We waited almost 30 minutes for sandwiches, fries and fish cakes, which were actually more like 'greasy potato cakes'. It seemed like our waitress ignored us. The prices were fair. It seems more like a place to grab a drink with your buddies, than... More

This was quite a good restaurant. The Monday special is a seafood platter which includes lobster chowder, scallops, shrimp, fish nuggets and fries, all for $12. It was an excellent value and a full plate. The platter isn’t offered on other days. Lots of beers on tap.

Great, great pub. Of special interest to aviation enthusiasts with its collection of WWII paraphernalia. I had not been in seven years and worried it might have slipped. If anything, it has improved with age.

We were able to sit outside on the deck for lunch which was a welcome treat. Food was delicious. Ordered the Philly cheese steak (and we're from Philly). Although it is very different from what we are accustomed to, it was still a great sandwich. More like what I would call a prime rib sandwich. We recommend.

We stopped here on a nice day,lured in by the ambiance of the outdoor patio.Sadly,we were only able to enjoy this space for a 1/2 hour,due to the rain starting. The inside is very warm and welcoming-lots of little nooks to sit in. We chose a table close to a big display case with sport pictures. The waitress was amazing-she... More

If you're looking for a place to grab a bite and you want actual GOOD food visit the spitfire. I've had almost everything on their menu and haven't had anything I didn't like. From their appetizers like the nachoes, fried pepperoni and bam bam shrimp to their main courses like chicken Parmesan and striploin steak it is all delicious. The... More

If you are craving good nachos, this is the place to go! Lots of cheese and toppings, and the chips are never burnt! They also make one of the best veggie burgers I have ever had. Their poutine is the best!!! The pub is small, and if you wait until 6:00pm on Thurs or Fri night, forget it, you won't... More
