Came here with friends for iDarts after dinner, their Great Bear house beer was only $5 a pint, so excellent price and not bad beer. Great setting for iDarts, lots of space. They had karaoke on in the back too lol....

The food is always okay, but never excellent! Angela, our waitress is always excellent! Beer selection is okay. Ambiance is terrible, the place is dark, dingy and smells musty. The ladies washroom smells like a chemical potty. Has for years now.
