    Nice atmosphere, good service and good choice of beer. The food however was disappointing. We had the fish and chips special and the fish portion was small and tasted like something out of a box.

    Our drink order was incorrect. There was very little tuna in the poke bowl. The brisket was tough and lacked smoke. Inside seating is in one large room, so of course it is loud. Really good selection of beers. Wood fired pizza was very good.

    Food was incredibly delicious the pulled pork poutine was so so good...the pulled pork was the best I've ever had... the crispy chicken was extremely crispy fresh and tasty... Service was a bit slow but a given as it was pretty busy... I would eat there again..

    Enjoyed our meal. Interesting menu options. The choice of a flight of wine was fun. Great coffee. Pleasant service. We would return.

    The food was very very good. I had the Crispy Chicken Burger with Truffle Oil Fries - Best Fries Ever! (Burger was good too). My guest had Chicken Linguini Alfredo. It was very good - the only quibble was she only got 3 little strips of chicken. The cocktails we had were very well prepared, obviously using good quality ingredients. (I quite enjoyed my Caesars). Ambience was loud, but not unbearable (I've certainly been in worse). To be fair there was a large group of young boys (Sports team) at adjacent tables. I will definitely be going back. I would've given 5 stars for the food if my guest's chicken portion had been less disappointing.

    Food was sub par - expected better flavour for the price. Would recommend other restaurants over this place for a nice night out. Service was fine just disappointed in meal.

    From seating to finish everything was great except the beet salad which I’ve enjoyed there before was lacking in beets with avocado as a substitute I’d certainly go back 👍

    Food was great but our server was clueless and had to have other servers cover our table several times. Nice place with good food just don’t expect great service

    Great Valley restaurant. Although in small town British Columbia has some of the atmosphere of a Granville Island restaurant. The menu is varied with the usual burgers but also present a variety of interesting entrees and great pizzas with an Italian feel to them. The place was busy on Friday evening and somewhat noisy but we knew that before we came. Great selection of ales and beers , wines and ciders.Super servers who were busy but cheerful and helpful. We enjoyed our anniversary!
