“Last Call is 12:30 pm”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2014

I liked the layout and the decor.They have a patio area. We were there the night before the the World Cup finals.We ordered Nachos and some drinks. The Nachos were good. Last call was right on 12:30 am that was the only thing that was not that great. Service was good but they were ready to bounce. You cant hate them for that.

“Good food, good staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2014

After traveling all day and wanting some food, this place was perfect being right across the street from the Hampton. We went a bit early so there were not very many others there. Setup is pretty much a sports bar, but looked like it would be fine for kids as well. Bartender servers us and she was very nice. They have a good mix of local beers, along with the standard "must haves". The nachos were really good, we had pulled pork added and the pork was smoked. Nachos were good portion and presentation and taste was great. Dinner was basket of chicken (handmade chicken tenders is what they seemed), no bones with gravy and hot sauce on the side. The waitress brought me a sample of macaroni salad since she didn't like the batch and wanted me to taste before ordering. Wife had a salad, and adult son had chicken and waffles. Portions were good size. The chicken and waffles were so good I never got to taste.
My second beer was on the house since the bartender didn't know anything about it and needed someone to try it out. No problem here, it was a Dead Frog Brewery unfiltered Bold.
We sat inside, but they have a good seating area outside as well.

“Back forty is more like back 1/2 acre”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2014

I've eaten at better places. It was close to the hotel so we chose to eat here our first night in Vancouver. We didn't enjoy the food as much as we did other places in Vancouver.
