I've been several times for several different reasons. A patio visit which will never happen again. You are practically sitting on King st. with the smokers between the patio and the restaurant. Loud, dirty and terrible service. Maybe they should se if it's possible to put the patio on the side of the building? If not don't bother! Drinks inside!... More

Visited the restaurant with my adult son for a weekend lunch. We found the food to be good, the staff friendly (our waitress was pleasant and chatty), the service to be timely and the atmosphere pleasant!! Would go again!

Craft beer list and tap list are good. Menu choices good as well. Kids eat free on Mondays and the chicken fillets are huge. Pulled pork sandwich was average, meat being flavourful but lacking barbecue sauce. Sweet potato salad was bland. Fries okay.

I group of friends (8) and I came to grab some drinks and food outside on the patio. The business was not busy. We ordered everything at once to save time. 30 minutes has gone by and we have been patient. I got up to see what is happening. I saw two waitress chit-chat behind the bar. I asked if... More

The only thing good was the beer! Service was poor and the food order took at least 30min and I ordered a salad! It was not busy and I personally will never come here again😞

We had visited this restaurant a couple of times before and decided to try it again. We were not disappointed. I had the Brisket sandwich and my wife had the Mac & Cheese (made on site) on Brisket. Both meals were excellent. We met the owner, Daryl, this time and learned that the carry specialty beers, some of which are... More

The food is very tasty! But not cheap! But then again ribs aren't cheap anywhere you go nowadays. You get different sides like brown beans. The sides are very small portions though for what you are paying

They have amazing pulled pork and pulled chicken sandwiches. This location serves alcohol and has a nice patio to sit at during the summer months.

Reserved a table before the Blue Rodeo concert, as we had done so for a previous concert and the food was great. This time as soon as we walked in, they seemed to be not prepared for the obvious crowds that would be out before such an event. They didn't even have any table menus to hand out, and had... More
