“Not bad to have a beer and a burger”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

It was nothing exceptional, but the food was OK and the price was reasonable. However, I think next time I will try a different place.

“Awful!! Staff ruined our experience!!!!”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

We decided to have a beer out on the patio which was apparently why this pub had any good reviews and a bouncer came outside and screamed at myself and my boyfriend saying we weren't allowed drinks on the patio. This was the first we had heard of this and obviously took our drinks inside right away.

We were planning on staying and enjoying the band after we had just spent $60.00 on dinner for 2 but left right away and will never come back. Awful, gut wrenching experience. Thanks.

“would never eat here again”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

after a tiring day, we opted to stop here for a bite to eat. i wish i had skipped the meal instead.
ordered chicken wings ($16 for 1lb) and a salad...kinda hard to mess that up but geez...wonders never cease...i think the chicken fingers were somebody's leftovers that had been re-basted with bbq sauce as they could not have been any drier and tasteless. the salad was doused in dressing and limp. the atmosphere is loud and i wouldn't say it's clean.
i should've gone for fast food or skipped the meal altogether.

“Surprise quality for small pub with great view”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

We happened upon this wonderful gem in the Rockies. We met friends for drinks with our children 11-13 after skiing on a sunny day in April. We sat on the outdoor patio with an incredible view of the Three sisters mountain range. The pub was busy but our service was prompt, courteous and personalized. The server was knowledgeable and the food came out very quickly. The fish burger with half fries and half salad was incredible. Other dishes were equally good and the kids meals came up quickly so they didn't fuss. One person had the steak sandwich and he professed it to be the best he had ever had. All ingredients were fresh and delicious. The cost was low and the quality of experience was high, what more could one ask for?

“Standard pub fare”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

So this place looked like a bit of an outdated dive from the outside, but it was pretty decent. There was nothing spectacular. I had the Drake burger and it was definitely tasty and filling. I have no complaints. They were accommodating to diners in our group who were vegetarian and wanted to alter menu items as well.

I didn't have any, but apparently they have free bowls of soup that you can get.

It might not be the first place I would return to, but really I have no complaints - it's your typical neighbourhood pub.
