We took the advice of other reviewers on tripadvisor.ca and ate a late lunch here.

The booth we were seated at was at the back of the main part of the restaurant, with a cute fake fireplace on the wall behind us. The lighting could be a bit brighter in this booth, I had to pull my phone out to illuminate the menu!

We both ordered burgers (mine was the Barn burger, can't remember what my husband's was called, but it had fried onions and mushrooms on it) with fries for sides. The food came quickly, and it was very, very good! The burgers are HUGE, make sure you're hungry if ordering them! You get a good amount of fries, too. The fries tasted fresh cut, not frozen.

The service could have been a bit more attentive. She never checked on us after the food arrived (good thing we didn't have any problems!) and we had to wait a fair bit after we were done eating before she came to clear and offer the bill. Friendly enough, but as I said, could have been a bit more attentive.

Overall a positive visit, and I would eat here again.

Its so nice to hear you had an overall positive experience! We would love to know who served you.....If you cannot remember a name a date and time of day would greatly help us to find and discuss the less than attentive service as its not the way we have trained our staff! You can reach us directly on facebook or by email theleekycanoe@eogers.com!
Cheers!

Fabulous pub fare, awesome wait staff, quick service. We are locals and love this establishment. Went on Thursday night for 2-4-1 burger deal. So for 2 glasses of wine, iced tea, burger and fries, and dessert.....Bill was $37! Great night out!

Nice service. The wings were great, nicely spiced and especially filling! Even leftover a day later they were good. A great place to go.

Great menu choices and value! I've been here several times and the food is well prepared and tasty. Sometime it takes a little while to come however.

We visited this favourite haunt, on our way home from the centurion bike race.... This is not our first time here, living an hour away, we love to visit aprés skiing.... Never a complaint about food, very tasty and the homemade soups to die for but tonight has ended a string of bad experiences! One night we came at peak time and patiently waited to be seated, had another pushy crowd lie about where in the line up they were, the waitress knew them and let them through,! Next time time orders were screwed up and waitressing staff were unrepentant ! This time our food was mediocre and the waitress was unable to take a simple order from the specials, asked three times if it was with rice...( no! Noodles!) only to have it arrive with , you guessed it, rice! My next beer was on the house.
Sad to report this was a favourite spot with dependable service and hearty good meals, only to slip into a average eatery with sub average service. What has happened? Saddened to see it slip, will have to go else where it seems.
