Been to the place before a couple of years back. Prices for food is a bit much but the food is not bad (chicken fingers at least). Beer prices are semi reasonable. Don't know if it was just the time of the night or how the place was but didn't really like having to go up to the counter to... More

We ate here while staying at the Atrium Hotel, next door to the Pressbox. Food was ok, the house selection of local craft beers were good!

I would absolutely recommend this place for food! The servers are super friendly and the food was super good! The only problem I had was the server had troubles making drinks. Unfortunately they were terrible drinks. I would definitely return to this place for the food though.

The nachos had like zero cheese on them. The chilli came separate from the nachos and was super dry. Nothing was even stuck to the chips because there was no cheese on them. The yam fries were alright. Average.

Revisited this pub a few weeks ago with a friend after a race at the PNE fairgrounds. When we walked in, there were a few servers behind the bar, and only a few tables with customers. We sat down at a table in the middle of the room. After a few minutes of no service, I walked up to the... More

The waitress was very good - responsive and recommended a better glass of red wine - she was right. We didn't care for the local pale ale brew (a bit bitter compared to Okanagan Pale Ale), but the salt and pepper wings were good. Furnishings were outdated and needed a good steam cleaning. Otherwise not bad.

The Pressbox Pub was attached and really close to The Artium Inn where we were staying for the night prior to boarding Radiance of the Seas for our Alaska cruise vacation. The staff was friendly and the crowd was enjoying a game that was being played by most people. Our food was good and "hit the spot" following a very... More

If you have been to any bar/grill anywhere in Canada you can expect to see more of the same here. Chicken wings, ribs, fish and chips, etc. Nothing distinguishes this place from any other.

Was there for open Mic with Mike, and Karaoke Friday. The place was busy, service was good. Food is bar style and not much for flair. Would probably go back if staying at the attached Atrium Inn.
