I will make it short and sweet--or not so sweet. It took way too long to receive less than average food , accompanied by not so great attitude. We won't be back.

It was a nice friendly night out, this was our first time out to True North and we were not disappointed. Everything from the atmosphere to staff to the drinks and music.

Great beer selection. The atmosphere was mellow. This is considered a trendy part of town. The football games are on all the TV's. The security was courteous. Very clean and great design. The prices are extremely reasonable. So worth paying for a cab.
