with a bit of tolerance you will see the locals and enjoy the food. The atmosphere changes and was quite enjoyable. There is some over drinking and problems do arise.

They have good food, live music, relaxed atmosphere. They are the only place in town that makes fancy drinks and I believe they have on tap beer regularly or semi regularly.

Busy all the time, good bar food and very friendly staff, this is a great place for both lunch and dinner. Had the chicken quesadilla which was great and very filling for lunch, chicken fingers for dinner one night also very good!

The Kickin' Caribou is a great place to stop by after work if you want to grab a beer and a bit of conversation. The folks who hang out there will engage you in all sorts of interesting conversations. I cannot fairly comment on the food. The Kickin' Caribou is best known for burgers, but have only tried the fish... More

This Hotel is located in the center of Iqaluit. You are close to shops and restaurants. You are within a one minute walk to all three banks and a five minute walk to a main store. Everything else is located within a 10 minute walk. If it is cold out just take a local taxi which is $7.00. The Hotel... More

Wentfor a solo dinner while visiting Iqaluit on business. The prices were typical for the North but the food was absolutely worth it. I had the soup to start which was a really nice coconut curry soup, with vegetables, lentils and potatoes. The restaurant manager had recommended I try the burgers or the Lobster Mac 'n' Cheese, I was torn.... More

During a recent trip to Iqaluit, I dropped into the Kickin' Caribou for a cold beer and some dinner. The staff were very friendly and service was fast. A nice friendly atmosphere, and a good spot to relax with a pint at the end of the day. Dinner was good and the price was quite reasonable by Iqaluit standards. I... More

Stopped in after checking in for a bite to eat. Busy with live music. Food isn't cheap, but it isn't anywhere in the area. Great spot!

What a great place to go. YOLO challenge is that food plate with too much food and they Challenge you to eat it! If you do you get it free and a T-shirt saying you beat the challenge. Lots of fun at the Kickin' Caribou Pub. Live music and other fun things going on. The BEST Chicken Wings in town... More

Well, by Nunavut standards this is pretty good. Go early for best service as when this place gets full it is packed and the busier, the portions seem to get smaller. Servers are usually really good and friendly, but as soon as you get to know them, they are gone. Food menu gets tired from offered too long, changes do... More
