We had seven people in our party. It was a Saturday evening. The pub was reasonably busy but if a pub gets busy on a Saturday evening, would not the manager may sure there is enough staff? Anyway some of the food was great, other food not. One of the meals was absolutely cold. It definitely sat on the not... More

Several years now our yearly kick off gathering has been here in the lift upstairs. Every single year the service, menu and area is lovely. Their coconut chicken is awesome, as is their bruschetta. Always a pleasure.

Great Reuben sandwich. They have sweet potato fries that are worth to try. Also try apple crisp pie. It comes with ice cream on top. Great staff and nice layout. They also have specials every day so make sure you call before you get in.

Lunch on Sunday. 6 large screen TV's adorn the walls showing a variety of sports. Service started out slow as waiter was more interested in socializing with other staff than paying attention to clients. As more people arrived he went into work mode. Menu had some interesting choices and food was a cut above average. Decor was tables surrounding the... More

This restaurant gave us a private room for our family the night before my nephew's wedding. Food was great. Gemma, our waitress put up with all of us and was amazing. I highly recommend this venue.

Third year I have attended a banquet of sorts upstairs at the cafe. Always a nice night, good food, cash bar and a nice place up above the restaurant and bar but yet open and spacious. Coconut shrimp, bacon wrapped scallops, wraps, meatballs, fruit plates and cheeses all very good. Even their pizza was very tasty! I Recommend! Parking in... More

I haven't been to Third and Spruce in awhile and not sure I will go back anytime soon. My husband and I were in the neighborhood and I suggested going there for dinner. I ordered the crab BLT, it wasn't bad, just a very small crab cake on a big roll. My husband ordered the filet sandwich which he usually... More
