This was our 2nd visit since 2015, and the quality was still there and the food and staff fantastic. Everything we had tasted great, the deviled eggs and pate are exceptional. Owner/manager was so friendly. Excellent beer choices. Good value too!

One of our favorite places we visited and hope to return soon. Crowded, so be prepared to wait, but the wait is worth it as the food is incredible, the staff super friendly and the craft beer selection is well though out...won't be disappointed.

We arrived about 4:15 to score a table, and started with the appetizer menu, the only one available before 5:00. Good ale, duck poutine, and the deviled eggs, of which there were three different versions, with the exact arrangement changing seasonally. By 4:45 people were...More

It gets busy on the weekend so get there early. Food excellent and beer selection not extensive but worthy. Nice area of town with other good shopping options.
