“Great Memphis Bar!”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

We visited here on the recommendation from another restaurant. The food was HUGE literally! Some of the biggest portioned appetizers we have ever seen! I was tempted to get their challenge burger, but there was no way my family could finish it! The only thing keeping this restaurant from 5 stars is the service. Our server immediatly took our order, but after that we had to hunt her down for refills constantly and wait for our check. It was a Thursday and the restaurant wasn't that busy. But, beyond the service I would recommend this to all my friends visiting Memphis!

“Great Bar For Visiting Canadians”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

Bar was right across from our Hotel the Peabody and after the drive from Memphis & Hotel Check in it was a great place to relax for a beer. Having done our research, we were aware that Canadian (from Montreal) had moved to Memphis & opened the bar based on a Canadian North Theme. Definitely a unique atmosphere with extremely friendly bar staff. When asked the Bartender recommended a local beer called Ghost River which was tremendous. My wife who normally does not drink beer loved.

Service and food was great. We enjoyed the chicken wings as we were only looking for something light. Wife wanted one of their special shooter glasses and while they were out of them, they indicated if we were back in the next day that they would have some for us to purchase. True to their word, the glasses were waiing the next afternoon.

Prices were reasonable for everything we had. Advertising the Canadian Thanksgiving (offering a dinner! on Oct. 8/12) even proved a more down home feeling for us!!!!

Saw this on diners drive-ins and dives on Food Channel where they featured a 7lb burger challenge. 34 oz beers are the best!
