“live music and flowing drinks...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

The live music was very entertaining and the servers were prompt and polite! This small town BC Pub is a "must stop" if in the Rossland area.

“not a bad place to grab a beer”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

pretty decent little place to grab a beer after a day on red mountain. I find it to be pretty average as far as pubs go, including the food. I consider it average.

“Giving Wings a Second Chance!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

If you love Hot Wings and Ceaser's (drink) you've literally found the best place in the Kootenay boundry area. Hot, nice thin crspy breading, super moist meat and a variety of flavors. Well what can I say about there Caesars, THE F"N BEST, and I know there little secret to making the best. The menu looks great as well and has just been updated. A definate check out!!

“cute pub, but nothing to write home about”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

Because it is a Rossland staple, please stop here. Just keep your expectations simple. Nice girls working the bar and the beer is cold. As long as you keep it simple, you'll be happy.
