Accommodating & Tasty Food

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.

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

That says it all! All the staples on the menu plus some surprises. Good range of beers on tap. Modern spacious surroundings. Family friendly with designated adult only pub area.

On Fridays I like to stop in after work to have a drink to unwind!!! With a great atmosphere and fun waitresses it's always enjoyable! The last couple Fridays I have stopped in they have a new happy hour which is pretty awesome appetizers for five bucks and beers for under five pretty good if you ask me!

This was a great place to stop for lunch at a local restaurant when passing through town. Decent beer selection at reasonable prices. HUGE appies and deliciously down to earth mains on the lunch menu. Had the trio of dips to start and then ordered one of the Panini's. All really well done! Also had great service in a friendly...
