Had dinner here late Friday night. Was lots of groups in for dinner. We enjoyed the food, but people at the bar were very loud. The portions were huge. If you order the pizza be prepared to take it home or share☺️ It was delicious but too much for one.

We have had meals at Dave's several times this summer. We love their patio and their burgers. We have found the service also to be very good. The drink orders are taken quickly and they are always ready to offer a beer sample if you need help deciding. On one occasion the bartender served us the wrong craft beer -... More

We thoroughly enjoyed a dinner at Dave's pub! It's causal enough not to feel stuffy but very nice and not too pubby feeling. The view over the course is great too.

Best wing night in town, a bit pricier, but WAY more delicious! Specialty sauces and rubs, many different flavour combinations. Nice selection of beers. Good kid's menu. Last couple of times we have had a long wait.
