“Great surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

We stumbled across this restaurant by accident and were extremely satisfied. Who would have thought tempura cauliflower would taste so good. You have to seat yourself and its a small place so many people walked out without getting a seat so be prepared. I highly recommend this place, you will not be dissatisfied.

“Absolutely love this place!!! Great food and beer!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2012

I've been here a few times now, and it's become my favorite spot in the city. Really. The appetizers are not only yummy, they are reasonably priced (take that, Earl's!). And they aren't just ordinary pub apps, either. Beer battered cauliflower and sweet potato fries round out the tasty smoked wings and TO DIE FOR french fries (homemade, shoestring cut, skin on). YOU have to get the fries!!

And I've fallen in love with the chicken pot pie! It's homemade, flavorful and the crust is all the way around. And unlike other places in 'Stoon, the meals come with sides, and in this case it came with a house salad and house dressing, which is a yummy balsamic!!

Friends had the fish and chips, and since I'm from Boston I was skeptical. Don't be!! It was fantastic (of course I stole some bites!).

They have a draft on tap from Montreal that's so tasty, and in fact, it's very similar to Hoegaarden. There are other great brews, too.

I've not tried the desserts yet, but I can't wait! Oh, and there appears to be some wonderful talent performing there from time to time (no cover!), so check it out.

Negative? Only negative I could find isn't the restaurant's fault...it's the Sask Govt....no minors, which really stinks if you want to take the family out for a delicious, affordable meal!!

Run, don't walk, to the Rook & Raven.

“Good food at a good price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2012

The Rook & Raven does it all right. Small, tasty menu, good beer selection, very reasonable prices, good servers, great location. Negative points? Portions were a little small, and it can get a bit noisy when full, but overall, this place is a winner.
