Fresh food and a nice atmosphere. We stopped here for dinner on a recent road trip and it was delightful. The food was great ... and if I wasn't driving I would have been happy to check out some of their draft beer selection. We were able to grab a spot by the window giving us a view of the... More

We eat here frequently and have never had a bad experience. I have always found the service to be excellent. Their beer selection is to my liking with a few crafts to chose from. The menu has a good variety, generous portions, and the sweet potato fries are delicious. I definitely prefer going here in the cooler months as there... More

Found this pub and had their Shepherds salad and Steak and Guinness pie. The food was fresh and flavour was excellent. The portion size was good and our server was very friendly. I just wish they had a patio on the water side but we realized that would be almost impossible as we are right beside the river.

The decor in this pub us very poor. The carpets are filthy and the rest of it is very "tired". It is quite an authentic pub and has some ice touches, but a bit of elbow grease would improve it. However, the food was really good and the portions very generous. The staff was nice too. There were no towels... More

After a terrible customer service experience at the cellar pub we wondered down to sheppards pub. Amazing staff. Awesome food so much fun. Love this place will definitely go back.

Excellent pub food, great view of the grand river. I got the fries with curry because I wasn't feeling too hungry, and it was a HUGE plate of fries for only $6. Needless to say, I ate all of it.

We only went here because my wife got a voucher to spend there. We had a couple of nice beers; local brews which were very good. We hadn't been here for years because the last time we went, the food was extremely average. We had a steak pie. a curry poutine and my son had a burger. His burger was... More

One meal was very good (fish and chips) while other was poor (lamb burger). Thought restaurant would have been better.
