The prices are fair, the service was quick. They have few beers and some bites. The sweet potato fries were good. The BBQ chicken wings were okay although I feel they could have been better. Overall it’s a nice, inexpensive place to have something to...More

We were 6 people and had different meals for diner. Everything was very tasty. One of our favourite is the chicken salad and one burger with garlic fries.

Had a good steak here but very few frills and quite mediocre environment. They could do so much more with what promised to be an old pub in this modern city.

I would not plan to go there. It is dark, dirty, run down, limited menu, just not worth it. There are many other places within walking distance, even on the same block that are great.
