    Understaffed. Kitchen took too long. Had to leave before meal arrived. A class operation would have just made our three drinks and pretzel complimentary given we did not get a meal as intended before going to a show. Instead, we were asked to pay for the portion of the meal we got. Bush league operation.

    I was not please with the table they assigned us, in the back corner, when the place was empty. The host was not happy we change table and informed us the place is going to be full and we took someone table. We were there for 90 mins, kept the new table and the place was never full with many tables available. I booked over a week ahead and no reason for them to give us table. With the price of going out to restaurant this is not the way to welcome you and assign tables.

    There was nothing really special about the experience. We had to ask for a service to come serve us. Food was average. Place looked really cool though. Good location relative to other places, but there are other food options around that I would personally consider over here.

    Lunch on the patio - excellent service and atmosphere. Beer always a great choice. Outdoor seating - benches - could use a re-fresh but did not detract from an excellent meal/beer pairing. Staff was fabulous. - Thank you

    In terms of the positives, we enjoyed our food and drinks. Our group of five ordered various beers and a caesar, as well as the fish and chips, chicken burger, flatbread pizza, and chicken caesar salad. The drinks were cold and the food was hot. Our server was kind but appeared to be the only staff member (of which there were many) taking orders, running food, and mixing drinks. The restaurant was not busy but we waited half an hour for drinks, and 1.5+ hours for our food. The other staff members were sort of indifferent about contributing to the work in any meaningful way. Overall, I’d go back if everywhere else was booked and I had lots of time to kill.

    Made a reservation and got stuck on the corner of the bar between the two spaces. Restaurant was excessively noisy. Took staff a long time to notice use sitting there. Once they did, service was fine. Felt like we are stranded in the middle of no where.

    An (adult) family of 4 sampled from the appetizers and main menu. Food was gastro-pub - delicious but on the pricey side for pub food. We found the quality and taste to be well worth the extra money. Greetings from the staff and server were warm and friendly. Not at all rehearsed. Very relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere.

    Food is ok. Poutine was dry and missing the fromage. Nachos though were impressive, a two foot long wooden board filled to the brim. Went for my cousin’s birthday and they even brought him a piece of cake out at no charge. The server was also very friendly and attentive. It’s little things like that that leave a good impression. Will be back!

    Ate there tonight before a show down the street. Honestly such a genuinely disappointing experience, and we came from Niagara. Wish we had spent our money and time elsewhere. We had reservations and they sat us in front of the propped open door. It was super windy & we were freezing the entire time. We were 1 of 3 taken tables. I have no idea why they chose to sit us here or why they couldn’t accommodate us sitting in any of the other several open tables that remained open the entire time we were there. Service was terrible. Waited 15 mins for someone to come take our drink order. Ordered an appetizer that came out with our dinner instead of, you know, as an appetizer… Added additional items to burger, came without them (please write orders down if you can’t remember them). Burger was rock hard it was so overdone. Paid to upgrade to sweet potato fries and got literally 12 fries. Food took forever to come out and they didn’t check on us once the entire time we were sat there except to take our order. We had to go up to the bar to get our bill because no one came back. Chose not to finish my meal because it was that disappointing. Guy at the bar (who was also our server) didn’t really seem to care. Definitely don’t recommend. Underwhelming food and horrible, inattentive customer service. It would be excusable if it were busy, but as I mentioned, we were one of 3 tables inside, our server just preferred to stand at the bar and chat with one of the female employees.

    Service was appalling. Twenty minutes wait initially for 2 glasses of beer, after ordering. Food ok, batter on fish very stodgy. Had to chase up further beer order, after another 15 minute no show.
