“Friendly good pub food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2014

This was a convenient pub across the street from our hotel. The food was a cut above normal pub food. In fact, our hotel seems to use it as its source for room service food. I had a very nice prawn salad and my husband had seafood linguini which he said was a bit heavy and he couldn't finish. But he really liked his Guinness which he said was served at the right temperature (i.e., not too cold).

“Excellent food and service, good ambience.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2014

If you want a good, inexpensive meal in the Entertainment District of Vancouver, look no further than the Kingston Taphouse! A great pub in a central location - easy access to Rogers Arena, QE theatre etc. the place was hopping as there were several events in the area that night, but we were seated immediately, and the waiters were friendly and efficient. I cannot say enough good about them. A great way to start the evening before seeing the Michael Buble concert!

“5 Star Service & Good Food Close to Theater”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2014 via mobile

Glad to find good food and prompt happy servers in downtown so close to the theaters! Only 3 blocks to walk from the Kingston Taproom to see Wicked. Our server was accommodating and the food was pretty good. The best deal was the daily special, which was a burger, fries and a beer for only $10. Keep in mind that their normal burger is $17 (includes fries and a side salad). Would go back.
