It is one of the only few outdoor places to enjoy along the water in Brockville. There are a lot so check it out. Stopped at the place along the river and docks. Older place with great food and service. Had the fish and chips which was a healthy size of fish. Could have been better with french fries. The... More

The food and service is not the best but the views are wonderful from the upper patio. The sister company, Brimstone, has great pizza.

The waitress was so friendly, the service was fast. Our food was fresh and without having to wait!! It was great to sit outdoors and enjoy the fresh air, watch the scenery, or go downstairs and play trivia and eat wings and appetizers. A full meal or munching on appetizers...either/or is highly recommended

Service is quite fast but sometimes food not done properly. Even though service is fast,it sometimes takes quite awhile for your meal. It is a hit and miss to get good food.

Casual sports bar with outdoor seating. Sprawling but with young untrained and not pleasant wait staff. Not .enough wait staff for the crowd and we saw some diners leave for lack of service. Food OK.

Enjoyed the atmosphere on the lower porch off the bar area. Quiet and the staff was welcoming and very pleasant. This was our second visit and once again, enjoyed our dinners. Beer was terribly overpriced for draft beer though!

I am not sure if they have raised there prices or I just never paid attention to the bill. I was there for lunch and for 2 wraps with sweet potato fries, and 2 diet cokes the price was $65 with tip. This should have been no more than a $35-$40 meal in my opinion. The food was good and... More

Great location, pleasant server; trip hazard at the front door. The coffee was thin; the ham and bacon were both fatty and overly salty; the home fries must have been pre cut, frozen and heated up (how hard is to cut potatoes and pan fry them?); the yogurt/fruit/granola fruit cup was good but would have been better with plain, unsweetened...
