My wife and I stopped in for a lunch on a Friday. Had not eaten there before and thought we would give it a try. We had the special which was the steak sandwich with fries.

Pizza was awesome, craft beer was awesome, staff was good.......and the nachos were straight up pathetic. I would be embarassed to serve those chos at home, nevermind a pub. Don't change the price of the nachos, just do better.

Food was good, had the fish and chips. Unfortunately, good food doesn't cover bad service. We waited 10 min before our waitress came by. Neighbouring table gave us their menu to view and order.

What a great spot to enjoy a beer. Dannielle is an excellent host. Friendly, curtious and definitely knows her stuff. It's nice to get service with a smile these days. Through in her great sense of humour and you've got a winner.

Super slow service on a slow afternoon. Server had no idea what specials were on, took a guess on wine....I eventually just opened the actual menu on my phone. Food came quick and wings were good. The bartender was pouring 2 to 3 inch heads on the beer. Waited for my change for 15 minutes....ugh.

Full credit to this spot on their wait staff they were all top notch servers. The menu is pretty limited and if you take the pizza and the burgers off the selection left is pretty scant. Did try the daily soup special "Thai Chicken" and found it to be excellent. Also had the Sofia Lauren pizza which did note that... More

We had come to hear a Beatles tribute band but they cancelled out. A local band was quickly hired. They were excellent. Probably better than the tribute band would have been. Food was great. Nice atmosphere and excellent service.
