They have a good and varied menu. A good place for lunch but a bit noisy for evening fare if you are looking for a quiet get together.

Choice of food was reasonable and we had a good meal. It seems to be a popular venue and had a good buzz about it.

I just enjoyed the signature garden salad. It was beautifully presented, fresh and the dressing which is made in house (garlic balsamic) was to delicious. I wonder if they will sell me a bottle of it? My waiter was sweet and attentive. Is sat outside on the patio which has plastic chairs and tables which is not really that aesthetically... More

Family friendly and they have a kid's menu. The salad was big and fresh and we shared a yummy dessert. All the food was good, not particularly cheap but after looking around, it was the only place open where we wanted to eat in Smithers.

This restaurant/pub is right on the main street of Smithers. It has a nice patio with glass enclosure and some umbrellas which makes it nice for almost any weather.

Decent service (though they were under-staffed for a Saturday night), pleasant atmosphere, the food was very good and served reasonably quick, considering.. A nice, laid-back night out. Closed outdoor seating on a nice summer weekend??

Great. Awesome. Very unique cool atmosphere. Super busy often. If your willing to wait and be a number instead of a customer to the waitress go get some wings on Wednesday. Huge wings and very very cheap.
