“Good Food - Fun Atmosphere”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

Three different levels and a different atmosphere on each to choose from. The main floor seating area and upstairs are nice for a group supper while the "underbelly" is very dark and intimate - good for a date or couples thing. The food has consistently gotten better here over time..burgers, wood fire pizza, short rib nachos, chicken lettuce wraps, black bean burger, arancini, calamari, beer, etc...all good!

“Nice little pub”
Reviewed January 25, 2014

Good atmosphere and friendly staff. There are a variety of microbrewed beers available on tap, as well as other libations. Had the fish/crab cake appetizer and chowder. Cakes were flavourful and not too dry, but slightly crumbly. Generous portion of chowder. Would visit again.

“Very good and original meal”
Reviewed January 20, 2014

Try the grilled tomato soup, it is great.
I also had different salads, fish. They brew their own beers (3) and do it well. Service was not fancy but very efficient and courteous.
I will return for sure!

“Good beers. Not tasted food though”
Reviewed January 7, 2014 via mobile

Our colleagues told us that this restaurant had good crafted beers. After given bad directions from the hotel, we finally Founded and "ski" our way down the main entrance because walking was not an option after mountains of ice and snow piled by the entrance.

We had a nice time, the place has this rusty and industrial feel. The beers were nice and we had a view to the barrels. Wr had two rounds and we were ready to order but my friend came back from the bathroom and mentioned that he saw one of the cooks leaving the bathroom but before he did. He doubted to wash his hands. That's when we saw the cook leaving the bathroom and my friend right after him.

We decided not of order anything. But the bartender were nice and always pleasant.

“Good value”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

The beer is excellent. The food is usually excellent with occasional lapses. The place can be crowded but there's a pleasant hectic kind of atmosphere when it is.
