“Awful food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2014

The fish and chips were amongst the worst ever . If I wasn't with a couple of friends I would have walked out after receiving our order . The fish had been previously cooked and the fries were the worst I have eaten. Burnt is the best description!! What a disappointment .

“Good music, average food, bad service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2014

We were attracted in here by some very good fiddle music on our first night in St John's, for which we paid a $5 cover. It was worth it.
The food however, while generously proportioned, was nothing to write home about. Nothing special, and the service was grumpy and intermittent at best.

Go to O'Reilly's instead, just down the street. Good music, good food, and nice people.

“No service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014

My husband and I went in for dinner, the bar tender came over right away took our drink order then returned with drinks then he went to the other side of the bar (out of our view) we waited and waited for someone to bring us menus but that never happened. My husband went to the bar and asked another patron for menus and he gave us one. We read the menu and closed it waiting for someone (there was a girl at the bar drying dishes this whole time and waitresses with trays of food kept going by us so there were people working there and serving others) so we now decided that if we hadn't been served by the time my husband finished his pint we'd leave. We then stood at the bar to pay and the bartender who initially helped us came around and help but the girl still kept drying her dishes. I say to my staff all the time if you are standing behind the counter and you look like you work here the customer will expect you to help them....this was a perfect example of that. If she is just a " dishwasher" she should at least say hello and offer to get help for you.

“Great Place for an Afternoon pint”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2014

Friendly staff and nice seating arrangements - more often than not there is music on the go. Nice mussels but no brown bread - personal preference. Been here a couple of times and can recommend a drop in.

“Mixed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

We had dinner twice at this pub while visiting St. John's. The food and atmosphere were good but the service is incredibly slow. It seems as though the wait staff are lacking knowledge of the menu and are inexperienced in general restaurant service.
