The food is better than your average pub fare and there's a good variety of beers on tap. It's got a great neighbourhood pub feel. The service is very warm and very good.

We sat on the patio on a beautiful day! Our server (didn't catch her name) was wonderful, & attentive. The menu offers a few unique items. We tried the steak sandwich, and smoked meat on rye both were DELICIOUS! We would definitely recommend!!!

We do! If you check out our menu online you'll see items that are labelled "GF" which are gluten free and "GFO" which are easily modifyable to be made gluten free. Cheers, Mike
