“Great sports bar in Gastown”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

We found this little treasure walking through Gastown looking to watch the Seahawks game yesterday. Great Caesar drink specials on Sunday and the Poutine was well done too.

“Perfect ending to final night of our honeymoon!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2012

We had been told to check out Gastown and were unable to find parking near the specific recommendation of a place to eat. We parked near the steam clock and walked along the street going into souvenir and art shops. It was dark and all the trees were lit up, buildings had a beautiful glow about them. We stopped at 131 and we were seated right away, our food came very quickly and was tasty I had a bleu cheese and steak chopped salad. My husband had fish and chips. They offer typical bar fare but have some extra stuff in addition. The atmosphere is modern and there is also outdoor seating and large windows for views of the street from inside. We had friendly and efficient service. They also served a lot of local beer - we had Okanagan Pear Cider and Stanley Park Amber. It was great to find such a nice place with good service and good food so late at night.

“Good food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2011

We stopped here for a late lunch on our last day in Vancouver. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. The special was the BBQ chicken sandwich which was covered in BBQ sauce and not dry at all served with a side salad for about $6 - great deal! We also tried the poutine which according to one food blogger "screams Canada"...it's not something we would normally eat, but since it was our first time in Canada, we just had to try it. That was a bit expensive, but they do give you a lot. Poutine is french fries with bacon bits, cheese curd and gravy. We've never tried Poutine so have nothing to compare this one too, but this was pretty good. It was $9! We could barely finish the bowl of Poutine. The gravy was tasty.

The kitchen service was a bit slow, but our server was on it with water and making sure we had what we needed.

We opted to sit in the back side of the restaurant which looks out to an architects office and the few tables/chairs in their outdoor restaurant seating area. Next time we'll sit in the front even though everyone walking by can see you eating, it's better than having to watch office workers take their smoke breaks.
