my guess is the place was at about 60% capacity. It don't believe it should take 20 minutes to get any service let alone get a beer at a tap house. Just as slow when we wanted to pay up and be on our way....More

The beer and cheese pot appetizer was unexpectedly good. Excellent service -...More

Nice location with a view of downtown Victoria. Food is fresh and delicious. Try the fish (halibut) and chips plate and the Bangers and Mash! Yummy! Also great selection of local 'brews'.

A haven for ale lovers. Not expensive and a very good selection of beers. Try the Flight of Four, Classic then the IPA. Finish with a pint of your favourite, mine the English India Pale Ale.

Do you have gluten-free options? I see some, but I know there are usually more options such as a leaf wrapped burger.
