Over the last year, this place has become one of our regular haunts. We have enjoyed almost everything on the menu and we always receive excellent service. The nightly specials (Tuesday rubs, Wednesday wings, etc) are often a really good and budget friendly option. With all that and being housed in a former funeral home, this place is a great... More

We live a couple of blocks away and love going there for Name That Tune/Trivia on Thursdays. It's also half price wine on Thursdays. The menu isn't too shabby either. Good burgers and appetizers. Plenty of televisions if you want to catch the game. Service is usually decent, and fantastic if it's Desiree.

Stopped in for a bite on the patio as summer seems to be ending. It's a bare-bones setting, mostly plastic tables and chairs with a couple of wooden tables with stools. We were happy in the sun though, and the patio is around the corner from 16th Avenue away from the traffic noise. Our waitress was friendly and knew her... More

This place is pretty old and run down which I'm okay with, but we ordered steak sandwiches which were on special. We asked for medium rare - they came out red and cold in the middle. We sent them back and they came back cooked fine, but the flavour was pungent. The fries were fine. We aren't going back.

It's a pretty decent atmosphere during Trivia Night but the food is pretty mediocre and the service is just as bad.

The title of our review sums up our experience today. I only went because it was close to SAIT. Otherwise, never again!

This used to be a funeral home before it was a pub, so some people might be creeped out by that fact. We came there over Stampede week and had good service and food. The food is the standard pub grub fare, so don't expect any gourmet food here. They have a good selection of Irish beers, too.
