Great Pub with great Celtic music! Food and service was pretty good! Prices were mid-range. A very busy pub, very lively. We would come back! The music was outstanding! Charles and Diane Honeymooners from North Bay, ON

We had a late lunch at the Triangle recently and sat outside on the sidewalk patio. We loved our Bloody Caesar with spicy green bean; the Crab salad tacos and Ploughman's lunch were also very good. Portion was just so-so, and at $15 each, we...More

We were served by a very friendly waiter who recommended the Propeller beer and it was delicious. My husband tried their whiskey sampler and he really liked it.
