Normally after being in town for dinner, we walk a couple miles back to our resort, and along the way, we many times stop at Captain Dons. If you like old bars with great people and Live Rock N Roll, then this is the place...More

I would classify this as a "dive" bar - smoky and kind of tacky. Seems to be a gringo handout. Didn't enjoy it much.

The bar itself looks a bit rundown- it's not fancy by any means but it's always busy which is a great sign. The service was very speedy and friendly. Our table all had chicken wings and they were SO GOOD. Many flavor to chose from...More

Atmosphere was lovely and accomodating, service was really efficient and friendly. They do put the great sliding patio doors down during the music, I guess so they don't disrupt the neighbours

Looking for a sports bar where we can watch TSN sports channel when Canadian Curling is on that is close to the Sheraton. One of the reviews say they watch Canadian Football so I'm wondering if this bar has TSN1 and TSN3 and this is where we could watch curling ( Canadian championships Feb 18-26 and March 4-12).

You could ask them at Captain Dons. They have several TVs so they might do it for you especially if you have a few drinks & order some food.
