“Great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012

Scott skins are a must when eating here!! They are the best! Even the pizza here is really good. And you can order take out. It has a very pub feeling when dining in.

“Alright”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2012

The place has a cool vibe to it. The staff were very friendly. There was a group of people sitting across from us, from the United States and all the servers came over to say "welcome to Canada". The food was average, the scotskins are unique although nothing to write home about. I had the donair, which was alright. My partner had the whole clams and fries. The clams were good, the fries were atrocious.

“Typical pub food, open late”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2012

If you're simply looking for a late night order of wings and/or french fries then Joe's is your best bet in Wolfville. They are open very late each night and offer a delivery service as well.

You're not going to find the best food you've tasted, but you will find some old classics such as donairs, pizza, etc.

“horrible”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

went inside, asked about outdoor patio services. we were told to sit anywhere and the servers would come. we sat for 15 minutes, servers came but never anywhere near our table. sometimes the servers would be going to the exact same tables over and over , no one seemed to be assigned to any sections. inside the bathroom was filthy, right beside the open kitchen was a huge turn off.
