I'm starting to get a little to old for places like this, but I won't hold it against them. The restaurant is dimly lit, filled with scantily-clad waitresses and photos on the wall of even more scantily-clad waitresses. The standard pub deals - wing nights, drink specials - are excellent and worth taking advantage of. The service has always been pretty good for me.
On a night with a big sports event happening (UFC, Canucks game, etc) or it's wing night, it gets very crowded, and I would only recommend this place if you're a 20-30 year old male.I am at the tail-end of that demographic and feel a little out of place. Nonetheless, the energy is high. On a slow night, I feel a little less agoraphobic and appreciate the sports bar vibe a little more.
My major complaint is the layout of the room. There are certain seats in the house that would make watching the TVs next to impossible. The only reason I would come to this establishment would be to watch sports, so I'd be hooped if only the bad seats were open! At any rate, Boston Pizza, which is just up the road, has a superior sports bar that is a little more relaxed. Given a choice, I would choose BP every time to watch a game.
