“Loud music, fun atmosphere”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2013

Great little tavern that transported me back to my University days. great little band was playing, and a young crowd. Fun for a few hours, but the loud music got to be a bit much after awhile! Make sure your order drinks from the bar, no one will come to your table.

“One of the best places to catch a live band”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2013

A "country" dive bar on Ossington (close to Dundas), that has good bands playing
on almost every day of the week. It's one of the best bets for a party even on a Sunday.
The bar is beautifully decorated and the atmosphere is fantastic.

“Great music, brunch and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2012

What a fun way to kick off Grey Cup Sunday with a good,fun brunch. The service was great and bluegrass band were very good. All you can eat eggs, sausages, pancakes and homefries, were delicious and served on a platter. The bar was open for some cool drinks. A glass of orange juice was included. Best value in town.

“Gramma's rec room with better food and music”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2012

This is such a cool little joint. Great local menu, semi-dreadful table service any time I've visited. Usually one waitstaff for the whole floor, then no table service at all! This is my only real beef however, prettiest little stage you ever saw, someone who loves roots/rockabilly/bluegrass books these shows with a great ear. General feeling of familial disorganization aboutthe place, really doesn't detract at all
