“Great little pub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

This is a pub that has a wide selection of bottled and draft beer. The dining menu is fairly limited. We had Dave’s burger which was not only very good but came accompanied by a mountain of great fries. It tasted even better with Amsterdam draft beer. The service was excellent.

“Great neighbourhood pub!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Let's be clear - this is pub grub. But it is very good pub grub!! They have an excellent selection of draft and bottled beers, including many micro brews. There are a lot of cool events happening here and the ambiance is terrific! Great owners, great staff, great place!!!

“Beers and Bros”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

Stumbled onto this place while taking a stroll along Saint Claire West. My brother and I were just in the mood for a simple, pub-ish place to chill out at.
They have a small patio that we unfortunately were not able to get a table for, but the rest of the restaurant was still pretty nice.

Our server was nice enough to recommend his favorite beer and the food came pretty quickly.
My brother and I shared a meaty pizza and Liz’s Lasagna - which were pretty standard, but the side caesar salad it came with was kind of sad.

There wasn't any live music playing while we were there, but I'm curious to check back into this place and see what it's like.

“Great entertainment experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2009

Dropped into this restaurant last Thursday night to catch some random open mic performers. I was blown away by the opening act - a Bluegrass ensemble - Red Rocket Ramblers. Their vocal harmonies were amazing, and the banjo player was exceptional. Really great group. They played for a full hour, and I can't wait to hear them again. Home-style Italian food was terrific as well.
