Wonderful hostesses and servers. One of the few places where they didn’t rush me on a Saturday to pay my bill. Also, OpenTable was super simple to use and they event call me from Tap&Barrel to confirm my reservation.

No way you can have a decent conversation with this noise level. It's a Bar restaurant, I get it, but common sense says from 6:30 to 10 is the dinner time. People are going to have conversation, lower the music volume. Plus the Salmon was tasteless, I wonder if there was a recipe or they just tossed it on the fire.

Truth? This place is run down first of all. Uneven tables. Uncomfortable chairs. Server was new but friendly, so was the on-site supervisor. However, the food was not good. I ordered the braised beef quesadilla and it had only a half a teaspoon IF THAT in the quesadilla, no cheese and full of purple cabbage. Had to send back and I hate to do that! Got the fish and chips instead and it was super super greasy. Fries were dripping in grease. So unfortunate, this used to be a favourite of mine and we drove all the way out from Langley to take the fam for a Christmas Eve treat. Should have ordered Chinese at home. Great staff though

Generally a good location to eat at. Especially when nice weather. Food is good, Service is decent (servers are wearing masks and there are plastic partitions between hightops). Parking is fine if you don't mind paying meters for nearby parking, otherwise you'll have to park a block or two south of 2nd Avenue for free parking (about a 5 min walk). Location is great for a walk after eating as well as shopping at London Drugs or Urban Fare as well as getting a bite from exercising or an event at the community centre next door.

I had a dinner here with my team, and even though it's more of a casual bar, I thought the food was pretty interesting, and good. I really enjoyed the waffle fries and the tofu rice bowl. The drinks are a bit pricey but it wasn't too bad! I definitely would recommend.

Attended on Dec 9 for a business luncheon. Had not seen several of my colleagues in well over a year due to Covid. Little bit of confusion at the front but was noon and lots of folks trying to get seated. We were brought up stairs and the setting up there is great. Service was great. It has to be something over the top for me to say outstanding so hence ill give it a very good. Friendly and attentive. Food came out in a reasonable amount of time. We had to wait a little longer than i wanted for the last plate so we were staring at our food polietly for 3-4 minutes which id rather we avoided but it is what it is. Next time just grab a couple more servers and bring the stuff all at once is my suggestion. I had to keep asking for coffee refills but that was no biggie. Dropped close to 400.00 with tip so a little pricey but worth it in my mind. We will be back. thanks

Very good brunch options. There are some very good Gluten free options which was a big plus for us. The only slight inconvenience is that the table reserved was to be inside and we ended up sitting outside.
