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. My only complaint was that the floor of the patio was quite dirty with lots of garbage around. To be fair, it was quite windy that day but it would have... More

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.

A lot of people told us to eat here. The menu reads like a locavore's dream, but the execution just wasn't there. Overcooked, dark tempura halibut with run of the mill fries. The guiness burger failed to impress though the guiness cheese itself was good. The crab cake appetizer, I would get again, even though it too was on the... More

Nice atmosphere, food was good for pub food. One of the best places to eat in Smithers. Customer service was okay.......it was not busy when I was there and the staff did not appear to be rushing...

The place is set up very nice with a great decor and atmosphere. The wait staff was very good, food was fast and well done. Parking was also pretty good considering its location on Main street Smithers

Before it was sold, food was outstanding. Now, it has definitely slipped into mediocre, regular fare. Staff are Ok....but something is missing. New ownership has changed menu...e.g. Fish and Chips used to be big , fresh fish, lightly battered, great fries. Now...fish is crappy, frozen cheap fish. Nothing fresh about it. Fries are ordinary, usual frozen stuff you get in... More

Lovely dining experience with very good food, prompt service and located right in town. The ambiance alone was warm and inviting, but I would return to dine here again as the food was not only delicious, fresh ,and filling, but artistic as well.
