I have been here many times, properly ventilated as I can feel cool air coming in which is important. Service is very efficient and friendly.
Food is decent pub food. So overall a good place to go.

Waitress that switched over from the afternoon shift was incredibly rude, and put a serious downer on the entire day.

The service was a little slow, but not unbearable. I understand it’s COVID and everyone is doing their best. Food was typical pub and the prices were reasonable.

I was really impressed with the roof top, covered, heated patio. I felt even warmer than I would feel in a regular restaurant indoors. The service and food was good as well. I would definitely go again.

A great outdoor space with good food and beverages. It was nice to be with friends while restrictions are still in place. Staff was rigorous in their screening of guests and ensured safety measures were in place. A wonderful experience. Hope you’re fully open again soon!

The poutine was fantastic! Unfortunately they were out of the clam chowder, so that was a bummer. The servers were timely and nice, and service was quick. It was still a little chilly where we were sitting, but we were jackets off. Overall, a great dinner

Everything was great (food and service). The only thing was that we were placed in an area where there was no heating and so we had to leave early as we were insanely cold. It would’ve been perfect if there was even a portable heater near our seat.

I had heard so much about this place so we decided to check it out, but was definitely disappointed and did not see what the hype was worth. The server was eating on the side and then serving us without proper hand hygiene. Would not return.

The venue was good for food and service, I just wish the high top seats at the bar that I was seated at were further from the door.

Great ambience and vibe. Perfect place for a few drinks and some good quality bar food. Only negative (if I am to be picky) is the beer selection was limited, mainly to local ones, considering it is supposed to be a Kiwi style bar.

Overall, I will definitely return to this place with friends. Perfect place to casually hang out with friends and enjoy a few drinks/food.

I came for the Cajun Fries but they were not the same. It was not melted cheese but shredded cheese put in the oven. The steak my friend had was dry. Not impressed. However, the ambience was good and jolly!

Rooftop patio is beautiful in the summer. Menu includes expected pub food; the edge of the smoked salmon in my Eggs Benedict was dried and tough, as though it had been sitting out for a while. The fish and chips ordered by my friend was heavily breaded, overcooked in some areas and undercooked elsewhere. Home fries and french fries were well prepared - crispy, tasty outside and soft inside. Server was attentive and kept our drinks and coffee filled. Restaurant is very accommodating for Covid dining and offers an outdoor patio even in the winter. I recommend based on atmosphere and service; food may disappoint.

The service was great - very friendly server! Food: my club sandwich was very good. Fries could use some work as they were a bit dry and when I was brought my order, the server (not the one I mentioned but another one) didn't bring me utensils or a napkin. Atmosphere: We went for lunch on Saturday, December 18th, just the day before Covid was causing most places to go to 50% capacity, and it was way, way, way too crowded!!! It was super noisy - had to shout to be heard - which is something that Hemmingway's can do little about but it certainly didn't help in contributing to a quiet, Saturday afternoon lunch. Hemmingway's is more of a "summer place" with it's patios and open second floor and great people watching which is when I will definitely return. With the Covid situation being what it is, we were surprised to have seen the place so crowded.
