“A lovely patio experience!”
Reviewed August 9, 2014 via mobile

On a Wednesday at 4 pm it wasn't too busy at first. We found the patio near perfect!

The drinks were cold and yummy and the shareable apps we ordered were tasty and fresh.

Our server was friendly and attentive.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Powerhouse. It was a very fun mid-week patio experience.

“Easter”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Very nice atomphere, it is an old Power Plant, a display of all artifacts, very interesting. Very busy, being Easter brunch. Very good selection of items all being hot, fresh made omlettes to your choice. Service was a little slow, but we figured Easter so we were okay. Our seating could have been a little better off in a corner tight squeeze for 8 eight. Each one getting up and down to go to the buffet. Food very tastety

“Good menu”
Reviewed May 22, 2014

Bright and airy pub-style restaurant with several areas that would be good for a group.
Tuesday night was all you can eat mussels night for $10 so it's a great deal.
Don't order the braised short ribs (appetizer). They are expensive and very fatty.
Otherwise, everyone in my party of 6 enjoyed what they had.
A good variety on the menu and reasonably priced.
Parking on site.
