This pub is truly a gem!! It had a wide variety of beer and drinks. The food menu is not extensive but, the tacos, nachos and Crispy chicken sandwich were all excellent! The prices were reasonable and service was very good! We will definitely stop by again when we are on our way through Medicine Hat.

I came with a group of 5 after work and though our group was loud, and opinionated our server was EXCELLENT! She joked with us and did her best. I'm sometimes overwhelmed in this group and she did wonderfully! The food was good, though they didn't have a few items and being limited in dietary concerns already reducing the menu... More

Had lunch here with several friends and though I was disappointed in 2015 all I can say is Wow what an improvement. Our servers were attentive and helpful, all the meals and appys were tasty and well prepared. I ordered a tuna sandwich that is so tasty that I'll be returning very soon.

It has a great choice of seating. The menu is quite small but whats on it is tasty. I once saw the staff pool together tips to buy a homeless man a hot meal....and that spoke more to me about the bussiness and the people responsible for running it then the food or drink did.

Food is good and service is average. I really enjoy the fish tacos. The patio is great in the summertime to sit and enjoy drinks with friends
