    Southland Yard has a nice ambiance. We went for a late afternoon lunch. We found the music to be a little loud. Our server was great. The food was ok. Two of us had the chicken sandwich. The chicken was very good but the bun was dry and way too much of it and the fries were ok. The beef dip was good but very very sloppy. We also had a caesar and it was very good.

    Jane was fantastic, she paid just enough attention to us without neigh overly pushy. The food was good, however the kitchen made a mistake on my sons order (no pickles) but to correct it, it seems they simply removed the pickles….which doesn’t get rid of the pickle taste! If they didn’t want to remake, it might have been worthwhile to remove all of the sauce and refresh it!

    I was pretty impressed with southland yard. I booked a table for 12 for my husbands birthday and everyone seemed to have a good time. At first I wasn’t impressed with our table as it was three tiny bar tables pushed together; however, it ended up working really well as we were right by the pool table, bocci ball, and VLT room. Our service was excellent and our waitress was able to keep up with our group despite the fact that people were getting up to do activities and switching seats all night and had guests coming and going. The games were quite entertaining and provided lots of fun for the evening. Food was good (although the pizza didn’t look great) and drinks were reasonably priced.

    Booked a team lunch at Southland Yard as I thought I'd try a different kind of place than just one that only serves food. The layout is very good, with views of TVs from every angle. It wasn't overly busy, so we had access to all the games (pool, darts, bocce ball, shuffleboard, etc), which was very cool. Unfortunately, we came across a disorganized kitchen/server as one of my co-workers was served a beef burger instead of a veggie burger. This led to another co-worker who had ordered the burger having to wait 10 minutes longer than the rest of us to get her food. Two others had the turkey club and found it a little dry. My manager and I had the fish & chips and they were very good and priced well as they were the special ($11.99). If not for this mix up, this experience would've been much improved. I think it's worth another try, but these mix ups when there were only three other tables on the go leaves me concerned.

    This is a restaurant/pub in our neighbourhood that is a great spot for good food and drinks. The staff are friendly and efficient. A couple of additional things I like is they have an excellent shuffleboard and pinball machine. They also have VLT’s that I haven’t checked out. They may have other things as well. Our group was having a reunion of sorts so we were there to eat, have a drink and visit so weren’t free to explore more fully.

    Southland YardResponded on September 27, 2019Hi, Thank you very much for such a great review! We work very hard to offer the best food and service to our guests. I will definitely pass this note to your server from last weekend. Have a great day. The Southland Yard team

    We booked this restaurant using OpenTable. The advertised menu looked great so we made a reservation for 2. When we arrived there was no hostess stand or anyone to check our reservation so we just walked around looking lost. Finally a waitress sat us in her section and apologized for any confusion. We opened our menu and sadly more than half of the items were no longer available and had been moved to the other restaurant in the adjacent hotel! The staff was great...apologetic for the situation and explained the menu change had just happened a couple weeks ago and their fault for not updating OpenTable. The manager offered our first round of drinks and dessert on the house for the confusion so we though we’d stay. The kettle chips were cold and greasy, the Mac and Che’s was a lukewarm penne Alfredo at best but no real flavor and not cheesy at all. The mussels were good but not good enough to ever come back. The dessert, banana split, looked like it was prepared by a child! A banana cut in half on a dinner plate with three scoops of ice cream, whip cream all over the plate and sprinkles!? Not a restaurant for foodies! Not sure if the food was responsible but a horrible stomach for the rest of the evening and the next morning! Again...the staff we encountered were fabulous...and they really did try to make this a good experience. I would not recommend this restaurant

    A good choice for gluten-free. I miss the veggies part, nothing really come with vegetables. The gnocchi was overcooked and too much flour ( my husband took that), he couldn't eat them. Mussels were cooked perfectly, have to take fries on the side. Serving mussels with a piece of bread, that not the way you serve mussels ( in Europe).

    The waiter had a great sense of humour and proved very efficient and entertaining.Had a beer made there and took a dozen home. I made a Comment about the Brussels sprouts needing a little cheese ( after publishing two Canadian best selling cookbooks with my ex the right to comment was qualified,in my opinion.) The cheesecake was punishment.

    Enjoyed Mothers Day dinner with my husband and son. We didn't take advantage of any of the games but appreciated that they were offered for free for Mother's Day. The service was very friendly and prompt and our food and selections of craft beer were good. My husband enjoyed his prime rib special and my son enjoyed his burger. I had the macaroni with added chicken and it was good also. Portions were very generous and we ended up not being able to finish.
