So so food

Stay away from the wok meal. It's more like a soup than a stir-fry. Way too much sauce. Not your usual good pub food.

We stopped in for wings night after driving for a few hours and were very happy. We had 4 different kind of wings and they were very good. The service was fast and friendly and you can watch the game while sitting. It is fairly loud would be the only drawback.

We've been here a number of times. Though it is an open floor plan, there is a sitting area where you can have kids and another for over 19s. The outside seating is open for all. Food is always decent. Service is good. With the open plan and no buffers it tends to be very noisy no matter what time... More

This is a large, well-appointed pub with a an outdoor patio. Food is well presented and the portions are large but there was no flavor fusion happening. Service lacks a friendly quality.

We decided this would be a great place to meet our friends for dinner as we were passing through Smithers. We've eaten here before and even though we had poor service the food was so good we decided to give it another try. Probably won't do that again as it started off nice, we were seated (maybe by the hostess)... More

The turkey cranberry burger was delicious! The side salads are quality instead of the typical pub "salads." The ribs were also great. We wanted to watch a game and they put it on all tvs and speakers. Good times.
