One of the best patio’s in Sarnia. Great drink menu and food. We loved the bbq chicken flatbread and the dill pickle puffs!

We went here for dinner pre-Covid (February) to see if it was a new place to regularly frequent and the service was poor. We had to pick our own seat as instructed by the server who finally came by the entrance. We chose the bar...because it s a brew pub so we figured we'd get better service. We chose a table and eventually had a server come by and ask us what we wanted to drink. We asked for a beer menu and she said they were all on the chalk board over the bar so we had to leave our table to look at the drink menu bringing our coats and purse with us so they wouldn't disappear. My first selection was out of stock, so was my second. By this time I said, "What do you have" and the bartender gave me attitude when they said, "tell me what you'd like and I'll tell you". I finally picked a beer and we went back to our table. The server brought our drinks but no menu, we had to ask for one. The food was average, nothing fancy or exciting. This is not a place I would go to spend my money. They seem to care more about volume beer drinking than diners.More

Great experience today for dinner. Our service was on point as was the food. The highlight for us was the Mac and cheese bites with the spicy ketchup! Very delicious! Also the fish and chips was a massive portion also done perfectly! Thanks for having...usMore

Food was good but found it expensive for lunch. More like Toronto prices, not average Sarnia prices.

Visited on a recent Saturday for lunch. My husband had fish & chips which were excellent! I had the Prosciutto flatbread which was also very good. It would be helpful to have a printed beer menu as it’s difficult to read the chalkboard menu if...you’re not sitting at the bar. Server was working both bar & tables so was somewhat distracted. Otherwise a good visit.More

Visited with friends and enjoyed the patio for a while until the rain drove us inside. Sampled several beers. All good and would recommend the coffee stout in particular. Our table shared many different foods such as tacos and Mac n cheeses and we enjoyed...them all. Hears they have music here often and will be back for that one night soon.More

Atmosphere is great, service is great, food is fabulous. If you like charcuterie this is the best in town. I almost forgot to mention the beer which is very tasty, (peanut butter beer, who knew?)

My coworkers and I came for our staff Xmas party a few weeks ago. We had a room to ourselves which was really nice and private. I loved the selection of cocktails, lots of unique ones, and everything tasted great. The menu also had something...for everyone. I enjoyed my vegan jackfruit tacos and Thai cauliflower appetizer. Service was friendly and prompt in spite of our large group. I would definitely come back, especially in the summer to try out their patio.More
