“Good Drinks Bad Food”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

The drinks and the staff were just fine, the bar was nice. The food that I ate was not very good at all.

“Great staff”
Reviewed April 14, 2012

The place is a little dark & dingy being downstairs in a basement setting with no natural light. The food is average, with mainly pub type meals of burgers & chips etc, but is good for a beer & a chill.
I gave this a V. good rating because of the staff who were excellent. They were friendly, slick & happy to chat & offered good service every time we visited.

“Pricey and a terrible burger”
Reviewed February 21, 2012

Came here after being told it was the place to go in LL - turns out that a jug of beer cost $22 and the burger was appalling, even by Canadian standards. For $16 i expect a freshly minced proper meat patty, not a frozen bulk-packed one. And served on a triangular bun that practically disintegrated midway through - really? The free shuffle board was the only redeeming feature of this soulless place.

“Nice place to hang out have a drink and food and play a board game or watch a game.”
Reviewed January 15, 2012

Stopped here for supper. Nothing fancy but a nice relaxing place to have a meal. My Chicken sandwhich wasn not very good but the combo platter was good. They have a fire place, TVs with sports on and a big shelf of board games. Good place to kick back and have a drink after skiing.

“Good food at a reasonable price”
Reviewed February 21, 2011

Very good basic menu at a reasonable basic price. With extreemly good service. We were at an advantage due to our 50% discount card. The atmosphere was relaxing with very little noise from the pool table. The five television screens were a little over the top especially as they were showing different channels.
