...and take it with me wherever I move. They have great brewed in house beers, and amazing food. The food sets the bar high because it's original, and hits all the right taste notes. Typical bar foods are reinvented here, and I'll be honest that...More

We ordered multiple poutines which no one loved but didnt hate, the main even was definately there meat and cheese platters. We went through 4 setups, waitress was quick with bar drink refills. Was busy all night long, truly a good time.
