We ate here one night because it was close to our accommodation. It was a bit odd because when we sat down at our table, the waitress took the condiment basket off our table and gave it to another table... And we needed those condiments cause the food was a bit tasteless, particularly the fried food (onion rings & mushroom... More

Kitty corner to the hotel, it was a natural spot to go to. First visit, made us come back again and again. Very attentive service in a busy spot. the Lettuce wraps are to die for. a good selection of beer both local and mainstream. This is a casual place that can get very busy at times. Free pool on...

This establishment used to be a good place to come and party - but now it offers delicious pub fare (upscale!), modern decor and the new windows make it seem larger. The atmosphere is still party but always a good vibe. The new chef they've got in there has really transformed the menu - duck confit club sandwich, duck poutine,... More

I've lived in the area for 5 years and had not tried Findleys. I'm glad we did today!! It was better than I could have hoped for, great service, good prices and the steak sandwich was top notch.

I ordered the fish tacos and they were simply terrible. There was practically no on in the place, the music was way too loud and overall the experience was so bad that I would NEVER willingly return.

I will never go back. After spending a decent amount of money (dinner, drinks, dessert) we were getting ready to pay and my kid got up from the table to dance on the empty dance floor. To be clear she was not being loud, just dancing. Quickly a wait staff came over to inform me that kids are allowed but... More

Finley's has always been my place to go when in need of a hangout with friends. It is a nice place to go for a good burger if you are in town. Servers are very friendly and always do their best to deliver a timely and friendly service. It is a favorite amongst most of the locals for casual get... More

The food here is fantastic! Everytime I have been here it was so good. The service has always been really friendly too. They have a decent selection of beers on draft, and the prices for food and drinks are reasonable. I would recommend this place to a frien!

You have to try the Buttermilk Chicken Sandwich with a salad for a side. The salad dressing that they have is awesome, then I tried the sandwich and was blown away. It was so delicious. I arrived in town later at night and couldn't find anything else open. Didn't have high expectations when I walked into the place. Aging decor,... More

Was here for a quick lunch with some friends. It is an average bar layout, 1 pool table and a stage. I ordered the 'Beat Burger..voted tastiest burger in Nelson' it was okay. It was one of those burgers with way to many toppings that when you eat it everything falls out. I give it 7/10. The best part of... More
