“mix of patrons”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

came here for late dinner drinks - sat at the bar, friendly bartender and locals, all who have a story to tell - fascinating sliver of northern life

have to say, the ugliest decor! who picked that puke green wall colour? fire place wan't lit but no need mid summer

OK as pickings are slim in town

“Reliable food nothing great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2012

Same kitchen and many of the same items as Waters Edge next door. Char and chips quite good. The service has been terrible lately Not much to choose from in Iqaluit and this works fine.

“Shut it down!!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2012

I go to Iqaluit fairly regularly for business, and used to love going to the kickin caribou for a nice meal after work. It was a quiet, respectable place to go? This last trip, it seems there's no management in place and it's falling down around it's ears? I waited nearly 10 minutes for someone to take my order then it never showed up! I ended getting a bag of chips from the vending machine. The server only brought one drink all night- I had to get up to the bar to get a drink...and you'd thin he was drinking on the job. Everyone that actually got served was over served, so there were a couple fights, alt of rude drunks, and one REALLY bad time

Stay away at all cost!
