Excellent experience from the very beginning. Due to COVID-19 concerns, my friend was nervous about being in a restaurant but we felt so comfortable. The gentleman at the front door who greeted us was super respectful and accommodating and our server on the top patio was awesome. Would absolutely recommend for a great patio with good food & drinks.

The food was pretty good but the only thing that I found was that it was really greasy. It took a long time to digest and I felt pretty horrible due to all the grease.

I really enjoy the upstairs patio. The service is amazing. All the staff is super friendly and helpful. The food is great. I really enjoy their burgers and salads. Definitely not just regular pub food.

Just annoyed as they seemed to be putting people with reservations in less desirable areas than the walk ins. Sort of ruins the point of making a reservation! Other than that it was good.

The fries were floppy not crispy ( oil not hot enough, or food sat under the heat lamps for too long ) Had fish and chips and wings, both fries were the same.

We loved the experience overall, but we were notified quiet late about giving up our table. We should have been notified while making a reservation or while coming to the table so we can estimate the time in which we can order food. The server however was exceptional, energetic and kind. Excellent attitude towards the guests.

Hi Tarjani, We regret that you weren't notified sooner regarding our current 90 minute policy. It is outlined when our guests place a reservation, and it is our practice to let everyone know of the policy before they are seated, so it disappoints me that you fell through the cracks in this regard. The policy is in place because we are under tight capacity limitations due to COVID-19 and wish to offer our patio experience to as many as we can. - Adam, GM

90minute limit was unnecessary

Paupers Pub
Responded on July 22, 2020

The policy is in place because we are under tight capacity limitations due to COVID-19 and wish to offer our patio experience to as many as we can. Even if it felt like we had more time to offer you, it was likely that we needed your seat for an incoming guest. We don't like that we have to put this timer on the tables, however we believe it is the fairest way to offer our dining experience under the current restrictions. - Adam, GM

Hi Parfenon, Thanks for your feedback. It will help guide how we construct and sell our cocktails in the future to create a better experience for guests. As for the watermelon salad, the watermelons are carved to order for each salad. It would have been cut minutes before it hit the table. - Adam, GM

When we arrived at pauper’s pub, our table was not completely ready yet. They had prepped a table for 2 when I had requested a table for 6. After about 10 minutes we were able to get the rest of the table. Our drinks were quite watered down. The pink lemonade cocktail came with no popsicle and the orange peach fuzz drink came with no fuzzy peaches until we asked for them. The purple drink just tasted like straight gin and water. And the beer came warm. The food was alright, not bad but not great. It was nice to sit rooftop.

Food way over-priced, 90 minute table limit, for no real reason.

Hi John, Sorry you felt let down by your experience at Paupers. The 90 minute limit is due to the limited capacity we are allowed to seat during COVID-19 restrictions. We just want everyone to get a turn. - Adam

We ordered food and drinks at the same time and didn’t receive our drinks until we were 3/4 finished our meal, drinks came out warm with melted ice. Food was great though, just wished we had better service

Hi, We're sorry things didn't go smoothly for you. Opening up under the new COVID-19 restrictions has offered some challenges in learning the new swing of things. I'm confident if you choose to return, you will have a superior experience, as we are learning how to work under these restrictions day by day. - Adam, GM
