This is pub food but very good. We were 1 adult and 3 children. We had chicken wings, chicken and chips, cod fish and chips and extreme poutine. All were pleased with the meal. It is family friendly. I am very comfortable recommending this place.

Everyone mentions the fish and chips. I had a bite and it was ok, but I am more of a burger person. I thought the burger was above average: brioche bun, nicely cooked, fresh toppings. Very filling. I had the super duper burger, minus the mushrooms. I recommend it.

The fish and chips were ok, but I suspect the "halibut" was probably haddock.Tasty though and reasonably priced. The halibut chowder was just bad. The veggies were overcooked to the point of mush, there were only 2 small bites of fish, and the rest tasted like a can of cheap pasta sauce. Not good.

We enjoyed the fish and chips, plenty to eat even with just 1 piece of fish. Draft beer was only $2.75 a glass, and a decent sized glass, too! The restaurant and bar was busy, with only 1 waitress that I saw, but we didn't have to wait too long. Very casual setting.

I was staying in Ainsworth and decided to try takeout at the pub. The waitress was friendly and the food was fantastic. Can't wait to get back there and spend an evening in the pub!

We were staying at the campground on the property and my husband swears by the fish and chips. I had a fish soup, and enjoyed it very much. I sampled the fish and chips and it was very good. Sat at a table with a view of outside and enjoyed wine and a cold beer. Would go back if in... More

We took the family and a few friends to JBs for supper and had a great time. Staff is very friendly and make the evening fun. Everyone had a different meal off the menu and everyone enjoyed them. The food is typical bar food style but the specialty is fish and chips. Great ambience too.

Great food. Large portions. Wonderful waitress. We had just arrived in town so there was no where open to buy coffee cream for the morning so the waitress gave us some to take back to the motel. Lovely place. Clean. Good food. Friendly staff
