It was. Monday when five of us gathered for an early dinner. The restaurant is spacious and friendly with a large patio. Washrooms were very clean. A pint was $5! The menu has lots of choice and was moderately priced with many healthy options. The...selection of sides is the best I’ve seen, including delicious sweet potato fries. The Ruben was a hit as was my quinoa salad and we took portions home as the servings were generous. Our waitress was attentive and friendly. Please visit Parks and Rec. I loved it!More

I used to come to this restaurant all the time and they used to have great food, but this is the last time I’ll ever go here. I know with COVID it’s difficult, but the whole experience was awful. I called to reserve for 11...people and they said it was fine, but when we got there it was a whole different story..They asked us several times if we lived in the same household. If we tell you yes once, you don’t need to keep asking. It’s borderline harassment. Our waitress tried to be friendly, but the blond waitress that works here was rude and ignorant. The food was awful. The wings barely has any sauce on them. Do not bother eating here. You’ll regret it.TERRIBLE!!!More

Tried Parks and Rec for lunch on their heated and covered patio. A very friendly and competent server made for a pleasant experience. Decent pub style menu. Will try again.

Poor service spent 15 mins before we got a waitress to get us a menu, then she never came back for an order. Had to go to the bar myself to get drinks and food. Ordered a pitcher of beer and a fish bowl had...to care it to the table myself. The food order did come to the pool table where my husband and I were. But they were almost impossible to eat as pulling them apart proved to be difficult. Never got another order of drinking and never seen a waitress after that. We were there two hours. Would not recommend this place at all. To many kids for a bar setting. And health and safety is a big problem there as well. Don’t be surprised if you find hair in your food or drinks . Hair and bread nets don’t look like there are a much there and the ice is left open in a bin for anyone to loss hair or whatever in.More

Visited for a birthday. The server was nice but forgetful and slow except for the bills. As soon as we finished eating she brought the bills and the debt machine together. We hadnt even had the cake yet! This was my first and likely my...last visit sadly because the food was good.More

We used to come all the time, but had not been in the neighbourhood in a while. We confidently recommended it to friends. The service was good, but the menu is much smaller and not at all as creative as it had been. No longer...a gastropub, it is merely offering blah pub grub.More

Spur of the moment decision and was pleasantly surprised with dinner! We had the chicken wings as well as the tomatillos, which we loved. Their Front sliding glass doors Open up fully which makes you feel like you’re outside. Great place to go in the...summer. No doubt we will try it out again in the winter.More

This is a fun restaurant to visit as they have board games for you to use while you’re there. Patio is also very nice. Food is decent but the service is not that great. Been here a handful of times and my experience is the...same each time.More

My third time here. But tonight’s visit reminded me of why I do not choose to go here. Husband ordered the magical mushroom bites the breading was over cooked and tasted like the oil was old. He is not that guy to send things back...but he did tonight. Did not want anything else. I ordered the “Swanson” Caesar for $10 it said beef tips + bacon + more bacon + Clamato + tobacco + vodka. It came and immediately I noticed where’s my bacon? The beef tip skewer was not good passed that off and the server said oh it’s inside. Which I thought maybe in the beef tip?! But then I quickly realized nope the Caesar has tons of floaters like bacon fat bacon bits that were more like white chunky bacon fat pieces. It was the worst thing I’ve ever had and to not complain or send it back for the second item I chose to just try endure it but ended up paying the bill tipping 20percent and leaving the drink on the bar. When you order a Caesar in windsor anywhere when the menu says bacon it is always a crispy strip of bacon that comes in the caesar. Who in their right mind puts what appeared to be uncooked chunks of bacon fat. The menu did not say that perhaps they should specify for the future. Also was told pretzel bites were great and they took them off the menu. Why?! So did not get to try them. Even the server made a comment yes they were my favourite sorry they don’t serve them anymore. Other than the actual items that we ordered that were terrible - I will say the board games and the atmosphere were awesome we had fun playing taboo and Jenga! In addition I will add the server gave good service and nothing was her mistake. She took the mushrooms off the bill which was expected if sent back I work in the service industry but when the Caesar came I just thought it was so ridiculous and having complained once I didn’t bother complaining for this. I paid for it and the rest of our drinks and left. Not my kinda spot and will not go back.More

What a great space!!! Great service for our party of four (3 kids). Nice beer selection. Pool tables and table board games available as well. TVs all over to watch the games but it doesn’t overpower the bar. Lots of conversation still can occur. There...is a great outdoor space as well. The food was ok. The beer selection and ambiance is fantastic.More

We held a club meeting in the private side room with about 2 dozen in attendance. Pub styled menu with all items under $20. The waitress was excellent, with orders onto her tablet connected directly to the kitchen for our orders. Meals for the group...came out in a timely manner. The crispy chicken burger was indeed spicy. Two others had different salads that were huge. The nacho plate was also piled high.More
