Went for lunch and had nachos and poutine with real Quebec curd. The nachos were perfect. Most times you go into a restaurant and order nachos and lack of cheese, veggies etc. This nacho plate was perfect. The poutine had real Quebec curd, it really...did and the gravy was right. Good local beer as well. We will be returning. Cheers.More

My wife & I stopped by Sunday afternoon for a pint and some wings. The place was nice enough except that the door was wide open and most of the patrons and some of the staff kept their winter jackets on as it was quite...cold outside. The wings were sparrow sized and burnt. The fries looked like burnt twigs and we had to ask for dipping sauce. The server was nice & pleasant although she didn't know what a wine spritzer was and eventually brought one albeit without ice. Will not be back anytime soon.More

Don’t miss this place. Good variety of food and drink. The local beers are great. Fried chicken sandwich was very tasty. Kids also enjoyed their food.

Very cute little patio with a nice ambiance. Always full of people. Great location in downtown picton. We had a fried chicken and a vegetarian burger. Both were excellent. Best burgers we had in a while. The fries were great too. The only surprise was...the extra charge for the gravy sauce for the fries. But still, excellent value for the price. Would absolutely visit again.More

My husband and myself travelled to Picton to receive our COVID vaccine and decided to grab lunch. We order a burger with fries and a chicken burger with fries. My husband picked up our order and we sat in the car to eat. When we...opened up our order the fries were terrible looking. They were over cooked and over heated. They were dried out and hard. My husband said his burger was ok . My chicken burger was deep fried so hard you could barely bite into it. It was covered with soggy coleslaw. It was the worse sandwich I have ever eaten. I hate complaining in these difficult times but a restaurant that provides food should not be allowed to serve food like that. I’m just sorry I didn’t take a picture. I don’t know how a restaurant that serves food in that condition is still in business.More

We picked up a few orders of their back rib specials. They were smoked, then lathered in a delicious whiskey bbq sauce and finished on a grill. The meat fell off the bone. It was advertised as a full rack and it was a full...rack! We had leftovers for another night. I would highly recommend them. It was great to support one of our local restaurants during this time.More

Sat on the patio this past Sunday for lunch. The fried chicken sandwich was amazing. Great selection of local beers as well.

Staff was lovely and caring. Food was tasteless. Not even salt helped! Nice to sit outside though, even with the transport trucks.

We made a reservation ages in advance and when we arrived were given a spot under an air conditioner...they were aware of how unbearable it was because they offered us blankets? We obviously left, not sitting under a shared restaurant blanket to eat, who offers...this I do not know! This year thought we’d try again, food was mediocre if that, I could get much better at 5 places with in a km of home. Won’t be back.More
